There is nothing that I love more than discovering a new artist… that feeling that you get when you hear a new song and need to know who sings it right away; or the feeling that you get when a song touches you a certain way, strikes just the right chords, makes you feel great, and reminds you of why you love music so much in the first place. I immediately got these feelings when I first heard the song “You’re The One I Want” by folk duo Chris and Thomas, a track that was released way back in 2006 on their full-length album “Land of Sea.”
Based in Los Angeles, California, Christopher Anderson and Thomas Hien have sweet folky voices that complement each other beautifully, reminding me of artists such as Matthew and the Atlas, Simon and Garfunkle, and Mumford and Sons; and while I still don’t know all that much about this band, I am certain that their albums will dominate my summer playlist. Take a listen to “You’re The One I Want” and some of their other tracks below… you will not be disappointed.
