My New Musical Obsession: Ruu Campbell

I love music. I'm not musical in the least bit but I could and usually do listen to music most of the day, everyday. From my car to my kitchen and everywhere in between.

As a result, I'm always hyper aware of music on commercials, on television shows or at the coffee shop, constantly in search of my next favorite artist.

I was catching up on some Parenthood episodes a couple of weeks ago and fell in love with a snippet of a song they played at the very end of the episode. I popped open my laptop and started googling. I found the Artist easily enough (Ruu Campbell, the song was Mathereal) but getting his music proved to be very difficult. He's not on itunes, spotify or any of the other sites I usually peruse. I stalked his Facebook page and it appeared that I wasn't the only one loving him.

After more fruitless searches, I went back to his website and ordered his CD after listening to just a couple of other small samples of a song or 2 on his site. Not the best way to know if you will like the whole cd or just one song, but I went for it anyway.

I got it in the mail the other day and I'm. Dying.

It's so good! It's a great, "working at the coffee house or chill out on a weekend morning kind of music." The Husband who doesn't usually get my musical obsessions and taste even commented on how much he liked it.

You can check his mellow tunes out on his website and order his cd there if you are so inclined, hopefully we won't have to wait much longer to hear him everywhere.

Check him out! He might even sign your CD before shipping it to you!
