I can’t believe how lucky I am. This is the first blog post I’ll be writing for Free Press, and I’ve been tasked with introducing y’all to perhaps the two most promising artists of our generation. Sure, things have been looking bleak for the music industry these last few years with such a limited amount of new talent trickling through, but we at Free Press strongly believe that we have found our saviors.
B&B Style Music is comprised of vocalists Bob and Bev, whose passion for the greatest hits of all time is seemingly boundless. There is no style of music they won’t touch, no song too much, no challenge too great for Bev and Bob. What is more, they do all of their numbers in front of breathtaking graphics and effects, taking you deeper into the musical journey of B&B.
Yes, they are strictly doing covers right now, but I think it’s only a matter of time before they are writing their own solid gold material. Even the Beatles started out as a cover band.
The musical duo say that they “enjoy making music…just for fun, we don’t try to impress anyone,” adding “We don’t need any DRAMA.” They take requests on their Youtube page for songs to grace with their approach, but insist that you must be subscribed, or they’ll pay you no mind.
Bob’s vocal abilities seem very much influenced by some of the great jazz singers of our time. On songs like “Sweet Home Alabama”, he stays firmly, solidly, behind the beat, carrying the song to new heights that would make even Richard Cheese sour.
B&B got it’s humble start about 2 years ago, when Bob stood before the camera and shook the world with a tear-jerking rendition of “Mamas Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys,” sung with such conviction that they had to shut down the comments section of the page to keep Youtube’s servers from being overwhelmed.
As of recent, Bev has taken on what is possibly the greatest anthem of this generation, the indelible “Call Me Maybe,” and with great success, too, climbing to the dizzying heights of 33,015 views in only one week.
My favorite B&B tunes include, but are not limited to: “Reign in Blood,” “Du Hast,” and most of all, “The Thong Song.”
You can pick your own favorites and relish in their “prodi-genious,” by visiting their Youtube page, or liking them on Facebook.
