One thing that I like about my "job" as a product reviewer, is getting to sample new products and music, especially the music, although I don't get that opportunity nearly enough. I love music and always have. Until a couple of years ago, I always had my 50-disc changer playing, shuffling songs from all of my favorites - anyone from Fleetwood Mac to Usher.
One2One Network has given me quite a few opportunities to hear new music since I joined them. One EskimO is just one of these bands that I've gotten to hear that I might not have listened to before.
I've been listening to this CD since I got it and I love it. The music soothes me and I just love music that I can unwind to. This CD will be on heavy rotation in my car and at home!
Some info about One EskimO:
- One eskimO is a critically-acclaimed English band fronted by singer-songwriter Kristian Leontiou and includes musicians Pete Rinaldi (guitar), Jamie Sefton (bass, horns) and Adam Falkner (drums).
- They currently have the #1 adult alternative song called 'Kandi' which you may have already heard since it's the most played song on all adult rock radio 4 weeks and counting
- Billboard Magazine calls One eskimO's self-titled debut album "...catchy, ambient pop." and Los Angeles Times Magazine hails the song "Kandi" “a beautiful, aspirational track.” The album is available in stores now.
- The album release comes in tandem with a full length animated film. “Hometime”, one of the tracks that an animated short was first done with proved to be quite a sensation. It received numerous honors at film festivals around the world, as well as a 2008 British Animation Award.
- Band is on tour May/June/July supporting Michael Franti and in addition to festivals and headlining shows
