Josh Kumra - Call Off The Search
We love a good free download from time to time, especially when the track in question is as top-notch as Josh Kumra's Call off the Search. Channelling some seriously slick rock vibes, Kumra goes for a cool, bluesy vibe accented with some sweet guitar licks and soulful vocals.
He's a sort of better version of James Morrison, where the focus remains firmly on good musicianship and great songwriting; a Ray Lamontagne for the masses - and if his voice sounds familiar, it's because you'll have heard him on Wretch 32's hit single Don't Go.
Interesting fact: Josh hails from Swindon, but let's just say he holds significantly more musical merit than that towns other great export: Billie Piper. With Kumra, it's all class, plain and simple; and with a host of classic rock greats cited as his influences, his music stands as the missing link between father and son - a continuation of good, honest rock tradition.
Call of the Search is available as a free download on Josh's Facebook page.
