Just Discovered: Ronald Jenkees
During my last radio show of the semester I had a caller tell me that I should check out this guy he found on youtube. His name was Ronald Jenkees. I wrote down the name and decided to check him out once I got back to my house. Well, we all know what happens when we put something in our pockets...It gets lost until laundry day!
As I was cleaning out my pockets I came across the name and decided that I have to check this guy out. I found myself on youtube looking at a guy who addresses his viewers as youtubers in a high somewhat country-ish accent. So far, not impressed. It took me approximately 30 seconds for me to completely change my mind. However, it wasn't enough for me to go out and buy his album.
Then I came across this video:
It completely blew me away, and as a result I now own his album.
Ronald is a master at Fruity Loops and he is also a really good pianist.
I am anxious to see how his career is going to pan out. I hope he starts playing with bands like STS9 and Lotus. If you really dig Girl Talk, Dan Deacon, STS9, and Lotus you will probably dig this dude.
Listen to Ronald Jenkees
