This premiere today is somewhat of a public service announcement about one of Chicago's newest artists, Jon Arrington. This is the first time listening to the R&B artist, so I wasn't quite sure what to expect. As soon as I pressed play though, I was captivated first by the vibes of the music: everything from the summery guitar riff, to the classic 60's, beach rock sound made me excited for the voice to follow.
Jon Arrington, then, graces the already angelic music with his gentle voice, to tell narrate a beautiful love story. A few moments later, the track picks up tempo for an even more prefect hook, letting us know he's down to ride with all the love life has to offer.
This is one of the most beautifully composed, and curated songs I've heard come out of our city in a while. I would not be shocked if I heard this song on every major radio station in the country. Yes, it's that great of a track. So, soak up some sun, kick back, relax, and vibe with Jon Arrington's latest track "Coming To Ride" below.
