I Won’t Complain….

I Won’t Complain….
In my heart, I’m a good ole Southern Country Boy… and this song…. was one my favorite gospels songs growing up and still takes me to a special place every time I hear it.
So I’m gonna ask that ya’ll walk with me down this lil ole country dirt road  and just “Give Praise” with me for a few minutes.

SubSoul Fridays Vol.17…Hopeless Romantic

SubSoul Fridays Vol.17…Hopeless Romantic

It’s that time again…Time for another edition of SubSoul Fridays…This is your boy, DaChosenOne, here on a somewhat sunny, but sorta dreary day in Indy…Vibe with me as we take a trip out to San Francisco for a beautiful singer/songwriter.

Ladies and Gentlemen, I introduce you to Jimmie Reign

This stunning California native has been making waves in the Bay area with her beauty and voice for the past 3 years, and she definitely has what it takes to make it to the next level. Opening for the likes of Goapele, Eric Roberson, Latoya London, and others, Jimmie has quickly gained a strong following in the Bay Area and is now looking to expand beyond her base with her new, more mature sound.

I can’t remember exactly how I came across Jimmie, but her debut album ”Pretty Girl” definitely caught my attention. While there were a few tracks that were a little to “Pop” for me, this ablum definitely has a lot of soul and I was impressed with her writing. It’s an album that you can easily relate too. Her latest EP “Digital Girl” picks up right where she left off with “Pretty Girl.” The future is looking real bright for Ms. Jimmie Reign and her “Pretty Girl Movement.” Here are a few of my favorite tracks from both projects. Take a listen and hit her up on twitter at @Jimmiereign to let her know what you think. I think you’ll enjoy them both just like I did.
