I remember driving home from playing street football (soccer) with friends and hearing the A-Team come on the radio. I thought it was RnB / Slow Hip Hop song. After seeing him on TV or other interviews, I judged him for being a passing fad without much talent.
- He kept a 5000+ person crowd entertained for 2 straight hours with only a guitar, a voice, and a loop pedal (MAIN REASON)
- He has a unique style that meshes rap with folk (which is not easy)
- He is well practised and has put a lot of time into his trade and art
- He is authentic (he told us about the phony encore)
- He is positive and happy
Anyway. You also need to listen to Passenger, but this article isn't about him.
Hope you have a wonderful day / week / month / year / life :)
ps. Here's another picture from the show last night (it's a picture of Passenger)
