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.

Sleep Deprived Single Review: Nicole Bus

https://open.spotify.com/album/6ByZxyEnEtLSFqJUmXVdTP?si=mZxd8_fPTfmMqifMbF-q5Q

This morning I was searching for something or someone. I didn’t know who but I would know when their voice was coming through the speakers. Twitter almost distracted me from the mission. Thank goodness Twitter didn’t rule the day.

God answers prayers sometimes. He or she answered mine by guiding the cursor to Nicole Bus on Spotify. She has a fairly new song out called “You.” I haven’t been so in love with a song in a little while. The song had me hooked before the 30-second mark.

If you enjoy R & B or Lauryn Hill, then you will probably love Nicole Bus too. She doesn’t sound exactly like Ms. Hill but she might fill that empty space in my heart that Ms. Hill has left. Hopefully, we’ll hear more music from Ms. Bus soon.
