How does one explain the band One eskimO??
Let’s see, put together Dave Matthews Band and Five for Fighting and you’re getting close. Now mind you I love both Dave Matthews and Five for Fighting so when I first popped in One eskimO’s CD “All Balloons” and heard “Amazing” I thought, yep, that’s just what this is. I’ve been listening to it nonstop for a week now. It’s also perfect working music. I’ve got my own little desk set up in the living room right next to the couch and while the kids are outside playing and I play in on my laptop in the background. Every once in a while my kids will come in and say, “Mom we can hear you singing outside.” I wonder how many of my neighbors are thinking “SHUT UP.” 😉
One eskimO is an English band created and fronted by Kristian Leontiou who is the singer-songwriter, it includes musicians Pete Rinaldi (guitar), Jamie Sefton (bass, horns) and Adam Falkner (drums).
And seriously.. they have a song called “Chocolate,” need I say more?!?
