New Tunesday – February 5, 2019

January was filled with such great music – we can hardly believe it’s already February.

Here are this week’s newest hits:

Home Free

A little a cappella Travis Tritt, anyone?

Pitch Slapped

Not only did Pitch Slapped create an amazing arrangement of Charlie Puth’s “Attention” but they also NAILED it live at Berklee Caf in December. Consider us floored.

This sextet out of Michigan dropped their first video – a live take of Thirdstory’s “Still in Love” and we just may be.
