Drake White is a new country artist to me. I haven’t heard of him before, but he has this interesting new single out there. He’s been making the rounds at radio stations playing the song for the DJs. Check it out and see what you think of this potential country star.
The Simple Life – Drake White
There’s been a big shift in music over the last couple years. It always seems like the indie music of today becomes the popular music of tomorrow. I think we’ve seen that happen with bands like The Lumineers and Mumford & Sons. They kind of took the modern folk music style and brought it to the mainstream.
I hear a little bit of that folk music in Drake White, but I also think he has some country roots. You can hear the country in his voice. There is a little twang, but there is also some rock in there as well. It’s a good mix and I think people are really going to like it.
The song is straight forward. It’s about living the simple life and the benefits of not letting things get too complex. I think we all know that feeling. We seem to make our lives more complicated than they need to be simply for our own entertainment. At least that’s what it seems like. We like the drama and we like complaining.
Maybe we should all just get back to the simple life.
