You know that feeling, a need to claim something? Specifically, "We heard it here first?" That's how we feel about TOULOUSE. The Brooklyn-based singer first caught our attention with a track that we could only call "immense" in its power. Unfortunately that demo is no longer streaming online, but, Toulouse has a lot more to share with the world since that debut almost one year ago.
Reaffirming that claim on this extraordinary singer-songwriter are brands like Apple, who featured his track "I Will Follow You" in their infamous "Balloons" commercial, as well as the people over at Universal who featured his work on the soundtrack of Fifty Shades Darker. And let's be real, we all know the affect that a stamp of approval from Apple can have on an artist's career.
This week TOULOUSE has returned with another official new single. This time, it's all on his own alongside a single called "It Is Well." Out via Terrible Records, this single proves that he doesn't need any megabrand's backing to have successful music. In fact, "Is It Well" is his best yet. Soothing, organic, and bordering on melancholy, this single has the depth that many artists are chasing their entire careers.
