I've almost swung outside my usual box this week with a track from American Rapper Everlast (Erik Schrody)
Not only known for his solo work but his earlier projects -"House of Pain" and "La Coka Nostra".
When I first got hold of "The Life Acoustic", I had it spinning on high rotation for weeks - I was obsessed!
So this week I've bagged a standout favourite "Grandma's Hand"
There's seriously no question about his awesome vocal talents - and if you didn't know any better you'd swear it was the voice of seasoned blues artist. I love the bluesy gospel feel that's been introduced with the keys - this ties the story back to the music brilliantly.
Furthermore, It takes me straight back to my childhood. I spent most of my younger years with my Grandmother - lovable, generous and a staunch Catholic to say the least. it would have been her Birthday this week, and this tracks always struck a chord....
This ones a tribute - Happy Birthday Ma
