Prettyboy — Dejvická


Pop

Joshua Boydston
It's always nice to see someone come into his or her own skin. With Dejvická, Prettyboy — the new moniker of Norman singer-songwriter Jacob Abello — does just that.

Tom Skinner — Tom Skinner


Country

Louis Fowler
Sincerity is nearly dead in songwriting. The image of the earnest singer with eyes tightly shut and a crack in his voice as he plunges to emotional depths has become a joke.

John Moreland — In the Throes


Rock

Joshua Boydston
With the soul of a poet and the look of a Sons of Anarchy extra, Tulsa’s John Moreland has been gifted the sort of gravely, booming voice that does Bruce Springsteen proud and a similar understanding of the universal human experience. It’s made for some fantastic records — both as a solo artist and with his dissolved Black Gold Band — and In the Throes is his best yet.

The gospel according to Sean

Sean C. Johnson lends his soulful sound to inspire the masses.


Music

Louis Fowler
Neo-gospel singer Sean C. Johnson has always been a music fan, but it wasn’t until hearing a ’60s soul legend on a record player by chance that he decided, right then and there, that was what he wanted to do with his life.
