Time to catch up on things I missed this year, like this Kickstarter financed, classic soul influenced, really pretty excellent album from Cody ChestnuTT, Landing on a Hundred. Says American Songwriter, "[Landing on a Hundred Years is] a much leaner, concise collection of rich and soulful tunes that takes in the last 50 years of funk, soul and R&B, and catalyzes that history into something warm and vibrant, yet altogether fresh." Exactly.
Here's Cody talking about the album, only his second and coming after a ten year hiatus:
And here's a live performance of "Under the Spell of the Handout."
