New Music for 2011

March 9, 2011

New music for 2011 has been announced and I couldnt be happier.  The state of music  in the last 10+ years has been sad.  Those of us who care about quality music are starving for good music.  We cling to our favorite artists more than ever.  I have made a list of the CDs that are coming out in 2011.  These CDs are on my mind every day.  Quality music by quality artists.  My ears long for fresh, new music and the following releases will be a sight for sore eyes.  Rah’s new CD comes out in April and Gab’s new CD comes out in December.  I am very excited about these two releases.  Also exciting is the reunion of Tunde Baiyewu and Paul Tucker (Lighthouse Family).
