Without You

There’s no escaping now the tidal wave that is Tobias Esso Junior*. Just months earlier practically no one had heard of him. He thought he failed. He left LA with his head hanging low. But, the story didn’t end there. He gave it another shot and now he’s blowing up. I mean blowing up. Tonight Show, BBC, Pitchfork – you name the media channel and they are all tripping over themselves to hop on the Tobias bandwagon. That’s just how things are now. Herds flock**.

In this case it’s deserved. So, I don’t mind. I’m thrilled for Tobias. The world needs more good stuff like this in it.

* If you aren’t familiar with him, think Randy Newman meets Billy Joel with a dash of John Lennon. This is classic ’70s piano ballads at their utmost best.

** If anyone in the herd has an extra ticket for the sold out Mercury Lounge show let me know. Pretty please 🙂
