Another song I found recently on Spotify is Had It All, by Jamestown Story, an artist I hadn’t heard of since a few weeks ago. It’s amazing just how much music is out there that you just don’t know exists. I guess it doesn’t help that I don’t really listen to the radio, so I barely even know the Top 40 type tracks. But slightly less-well known artists? Not a chance. Thanks to Spotify, though, I’m finding these sorts of artists recently and I’m realy enjoying it.
I guess if you aren’t willing to just let the music fall into your lap (by playing genres you’re not too familiar with, or ‘recommended artists’ or the like), then you may never discover music that you may actually love. It was a bit like this for me and Jamestown Story.
If you’re unfamiliar with Jamestown Story (like I was!), then it used to be a band until they broke up in 2007, when Dane Schmidt carried on with a solo carrer, keeping the name Jamestown Story. He’s had several Eps and albums since then, and this song is off his 2011 album, Find a Way. His sound sort of reminds me a bit of Owl City, in the earlier days. I really like Jamestown Story, so I’m planing to listen to everything he/they ever released. In the meantime, enjoy this song!
