Listen to Spree Wilson "Pick You Apart"

Arjanwrites_spree_2009

I'm so excited for my ATL buddy Spree Wilson. He has almost finished his debut album, titled "The Beauty Of Chaos," and will be shopping it around all the majors to get a big release. Several have shown interest so let's see where he ends up.

Spree is part of a new breed of artists who are part of an exciting new generation of melody makers. It's a forward-thinking group who grew up with pop, rap and hip hop, and are inspired by some of the timeless rock music of the past. People like Janelle Monae, Novel and Chester French are part of that same crop, not limiting themselves to just one single genre in their endeavors.

Check out a demo cut from Spree's new album that shows off his upbeat, soulful side. He's an emcee who spits out rhymes like De La Soul and works the guitar like young Vernon Reid. And I love his lyrical wit with lines like, "Heartbreak stew is the dish/and you can always go for seconds if you wish." Being comfortable as the underdog, Spree's optimism is infectious. Very promising stuff.
