Tuesday Tip-Off: Robert Finley

Like most people, we found out about Robert Finley when he appeared on America’s Got Talent in 2019 – not because we watch that abomination against music, but because people we knew who watched it to keep their spouses happy were like “holy shit, there’s an actual artist on AGT!” And the supportive spouses were right. Finley’s raspy soulful voice and undeniable spirit won the day then and it does now on his new single “Country Boy.” The song is as tasty and tasteful as it comes, laying down a country soul groove for Finley to do his thing on, and what a beautiful thing it is.

The B-Side: Johnny Romantic

Sometimes you hear a song that is so perfect at checking every single box in it’s given genre you have to think…wait, is this a put on? Is someone parodying this style or actually just this faithful to it? And then you realize you don’t really give a shit, because it’s a great song and you enjoy it regardless. “I Won’t Need Your Lovin'” by Johnny Romantic is a classic honky tonk ballad that is so darn good it’s got an alarm raising timelessness to it. Our suggestion? Don’t think too much about it and just enjoy the ride.

Mike’s Monday Muse – Clarence Gatemouth Brown

Mike’s Monday Muse is where friend of the blog, roots DJ, house show organizer, Bloomington Music Expo czar and all around nice guy Mike McAfee picks one song a week to share with the people.

Texas-by-way-of-Louisiana swing at its finest. Clarence got his break filling in for an ill T-Bone Walker at a club in Houston one night in 1947. The Man came out on Verve Records in 1994. It’s my favorite Clarence record and “I Wonder” is my favorite song on it.
