Closing in on 15,000 views in a day is a pretty damn good day for just a normal guy from Dallas. With a couple of independent releases under his belt, Johnny Stimson is right on the edge of becoming something gigantic. The video for his latest single, "Human Man" illustrates that brilliantly. Gorgeous camera work, an overarching narrative and an amazing song to back it up, Johnny has a hit on his hands waiting to be gobbled up by the public. I'd like to say that I was the first blog dropping this today but our young artist has already been written about by PopJustice and MTV. Yup, MTV Buzzworthy picked him up earlier and I think that is going to do wonders for him.
So lets talk about this song for a minute. Did you ever want Jason Mraz to be just a bit funkier? Did you want him to have this groove that you just sink into and throw some deep head rocking to? How about throwing in a pretty amazing falsetto? Wrap it all up in beautiful production and write some extra dreamy lyrics about the nature of a relationship and you've got a hit. It's a bit R&B, 2 parts funk and all over fun. It's a put the top down and take off on a weekend with no other plans aside from the groove.
Not to mention he's got all kinds of "Boy Next Door" happening. This young man is going to be huge. Like many of the other artists I write about, get in now when he's about to break and you can ride to the top with him.
