NEW MUSIC: Avriel

I’m always at odds with music.

We live in a culture where music is aย commodity. Where pop stars are created then trashed at a momentsย notice. Where people can’t remember an artist’s single much less their last album.

Thankfully there is YouTube. At least once a week I stumble upon an artist on the video service who makes me like music again. On YouTube there is no auto-tune or big budget production. There is just the artist themselves, and that’s how they shine. Takeย Avriel for instance. The LA based model and singer dosen’t need fluff to get my attention. She just writes amazing, heartfelt songs on her piano. ย (via Lauren)
