Sleep Deprived Music Spotlight: The Suffers

The Suffers on Facebook

The first time that I heard The Suffers was their appearance on NPR’s Tiny Desk concert. Since then I’ve watched listened to their music whenever possible.

There are so many things going on in the world. So when there’s something – music, books or whatever – that could bring us a little joy I want to tell everyone.

The name suggests otherwise but The Suffers really do bring joy to my life and hopefully yours too. We need a little Gulf Coast Soul in our lives, right!?

The Suffers are on tour right now as we speak. God willing we’ll be able to catch their show when they come to town.

They also have music available in the usual places – Spotify, website, etc – if you can’t make it to see them in person.

Right now, I should be doing a ton of other things – other music reviews, finishing about five books, figuring out the summer schedule for the kids. However, I cannot stop watching YouTube videos featuring Izik.

His voice is spectacular. I don’t use that word often. Spectacular doesn’t always fit. Not everyone is spectacular. Some people have good voices but not quite spectacular.  Izik is spectacular. You could even say super spectacular.

 

So this is my life now . . . just listening to Izik with my cat, Manny Pacquimeow, and saying spectacular. Actually, it sounds like a pretty good life.
