Music Monday - June 25, 2012
Plenty of music met my ears this past week, as I had my iTunes collection on random for the most part, but there was one song that I kept dropping into my playlist: “Too Close” by Alex Clare.
Clare is a London, UK based singer songwriter. He grew up listening to jazz, blues and soul. From a young age he played both the drums and trumpet before eventually shifting his musical focus to guitar and songwriting.
Clare’s debut album, The Lateness of the Hour was released during the summer of 2011, but didn’t garner a lot of attention until the song “Too Close” was used by Microsoft in a commercial for Internet Explorer 9.
With all that said, I present today’s Music Monday selection, “Too Close” by Alex Clare.
The Music Monday blog is taking a couple of weeks off while I’m on vacation, but I’ll have a new track when I’m back on July 17th.
