Song of the Day: J.S. Ondara – Torch Song

We have a sneaking suspicion that with the release of his debut album Tales of America on February 15th that J.S. Ondara just might be the next Leon Bridges.The Kenyan native settled in Minneapolis in 2013 without knowing much English and with limited guitar skills set about honing his songwriting skills. The somewhat haunting vocals come across sweet and melancholy. The sparse arrangement presented here are pretty much perfect for the song. The bandwagon is starting to get full. Jump in while there is still time.
