Over the years here at GFM HQ we have had quite a few conversations around the water cooler about you. Yes, you. All of you. The #Growns. Often we try our best to predict what you will like and what you won’t like. Upon listening to “Soldier” which pairs K.Avett whose track “Feelin’ Good” we featured back in March and Noel Gourdin another GFM fave, the immediate thought was this is for the “#Grown in you.

“Soldier” is Soul Music and the blending of K.Avett and Noel Gourdin voices feed the soul. Taken from K.Avett’s sophomore outing Lioness (out now) “Soldier” continues the trend of garnering deserved wider visibility and impactful feedback for this artist on the definite rise.

Press play.
