I've seen this cover before on bandcamp a few months ago, but just never payed much attention to it. However, over the weekend I got an email from someone in the artist's camp regarding his music. Calvin Gary, Jr. aka Joonie is a singer, songwriter, arranger and musician, specializing in Soul, R&B and Popular Music. He has written for and collaborated with Ruben Studdard, Elliot Yamin, Nappy Roots, Angie Stone and Mos Def (unreleased).
Joonie's debut album, Acoustic Love is out now, and minus a few tracks that's more suited toward today's radio playlist is a solid piece of work. Acoustic Love showcases the full reach of Joonie's musicianship which I truly appreciate in an artist. The gentle keys of "Just The Way You Are" make for pleasant listening and "Delilah" will have you swaying from left to right with its mid tempo groove. Check the cut below to start, then continue on to hear more of the album here.
