For this weeks S.O.W. I would like to extend my thanks to NPR Music. Bob Boilen and Robin Hilton are the iconic hosts of an NPR Music stable called “All Songs Considered.” This program is an amazing source of new music and comes with a healthy serving of genuine musical insight from this dynamic duo. I found San Fermin through a quaint concert series live from the NPR Music office called Tiny Desk Concerts (another amazing source of new music and inspiration). These concerts are intimate, stripped, and raw performances from some of the best artists I have ever seen. Anyway, on to the music…

San Fermin is one of those bands that composers/songwriters dream of becoming. The group is the brainchild of Brooklyn native and Yale-studied composer Ellis Ludwig-Leone and these origins become rather evident when you listen to his rich and heartwarming arrangements. It is classical avant-garde meets indie pop and the two marry together in the best way possible. Renaissance! was one of those songs that hit me on a very powerful level. As a writer and creator in the musical era we live in, I often go months without finding something of true inspiration that enriches my soul more and more every time I listen, and Renaissance! was just that. Check out their self-titled album, and you can hear it for yourself.
