https://www.facebook.com/TheBenBurgess) has just released a great/fun mixtape and best of all - it's free (though this one is worth paying for). This Texas boy has taken influences from all parts of his life and surroundings to create a really unique sound. His songs combine hip hop, rock, southern rock and more and he does it all really well! Just one note - while we usually try to keep it pretty clean here at Emerge this is album definitely comes with an "explicit lyrics warning."
And if you're in a band please be sure to check out this blog about an opportunity to be on a (free) compilation CD! http://emergemusicgroup.blogspot.com/2012/04/how-to-get-your-band-on-emerge.html
Have a great week and enjoy the music!
