The Listening: "Set Me Free"


My colleague Jeremy and I hopped on the F train after Joe Schloss' incredible book party at Powerhouse Arena this evening. He took it to Delancey to transfer to the J and I to 14th to hop on the 1. For the two stops we were together, he pulled out his iPod, cued it up, placed the buds in my ear and played this here song.

Now he watched me as I listened. I smiled expectantly as to not disappoint but wasn't optimistic. The beat dropped, I nodded and was quickly astounded by the caliber of soulfulness.

It's not often that I hear a new soul singer that impresses me but Blaire done did it with this one.
