*UPDATE: February 2018 – This song is now available!! Listen on Apple Music.

Today I am posting a song by Utah-based musician, Josh Kelley. Interestingly, when I bring his name up to many of my Utah friends, they are not familiar with him. Well, it is time to familiarize yourself. ­čÖé

Josh Kelley is an incredibly talented artist and this is an amazing song! The lyrics are so heartfelt and mesmerizing. What wife would not want their husband to write this song for them?

This is a new song that was just posted to YouTube on Monday of this week. I saw Josh perform live in January of this year at the ascap Music Cafe during the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah. I would swear that he sang this song during that performance. I vividly remember him talking about the fact that he had just written a song for his wife and he wanted to play it for her. His wife, Katherine Heigl, was there with their brand new baby who literally had been born just a month earlier. I remember walking out of that performance and saying to myself, “I cannot wait until he releases that song … it is beautiful!” So, I cannot guarantee that this was the song, but it sure does ring that memory bell for me.

I am hoping that Josh will be performing during the Sundance Film Festival again this year, but in the meantime … I just discovered that he is touring and will be in NYC at a small, intimate venue in December. Sounds like a great night out!

A fun song to start your week off today.

The Vamps are a young group out of the UK, and when I say young … I really mean YOUNG. The band consists of four young guys,┬áthe oldest┬áof whom just turned 20, the youngest just recently turned 18.

The Vamps are truly a band out of the modern age as they did not form in the traditional way. Actually, when James McVey (lead guitar and vocals) wanted to form a band, he turned to YouTube in search of other talent. He met Brad Simpson (lead vocals and guitar) via YouTube in 2011 and the two began writing songs together. In 2012, they connected with Connor Ball (bass guitar and vocals) and Tristan Evans (drums and vocals) and the band was officially formed. They started uploading music covers on their YouTube channel and they were an instant hit, ending 2012 with a record deal. They released their debut album, called Meet The Vamps, in the UK in April of this year. They are very talented young men and co-write and perform all their own songs. This song just makes me happy and brings a little much-needed energy into a Monday.
