Another brand new artists for us here at CML.
His name is Antonio LaRosa. It looks like he’s been working hard for several years to build his career. He’s had music out in the past, but right now he has a full album that just came out.
So be sure to check that all out.
We’re going to look at the first rack off the album. It looks to be perhaps either the first single or the current favorite track on Spotify.
Let’s check it out…
Smiling Faces – Antonio LaRosa
I’m still working on figuring out the lyrics on this one. There seems to be some kind of theme going on, but I can’t put my finger entirely on it. I think maybe it’s at least partly about a guy that feels okay when he sees the smiling faces of the one he loves. Maybe the smiling face of the woman in his life.
I’m not entirely sure. It’s finding something positive in all the negative out there in the world.
But the big story for me with this song is the music. The melody is really catchy and it comes in right away and kind of captures your attention. It seems like something fresh. And I’m not really sure how to categorize it. A little Clay Walker and Rick Trevino, but I can’t say for sure. It definitely sounds fresh.
It looks like Antonio released this one on his own. We’ll have to wait and see how it does on our own chart here on CML and maybe in the mainstream.
