I've always been a firm believer that some of the best artists out there are the one that are not as well known. This is definitely the case with this week's featured artist, Tino Coury. When I first stumbled upon his song "Diary" on YouTube, my immediate thought was "Wow, this guy will be famous within months."
So I waited and waited, expecting to hear his single on the radio over and over again until I wanted to chop my ears off (you know what I'm talking about). To my utter surprise, nothing happened and it still hasn't; I am yet waiting for the day this guy's name will be on the top of the iTunes pop charts. But as of yet, nothing. In fact, except for his single, "Diary", you can't buy most his songs anywhere that I've researched.
I'm not one to be heavily into pop music, but Tino somehow makes me enjoy it. And, as most pop songs go, the lyrics aren't too cheesy. This guy is definitely someone to watch. I still believe he's going to go places (and when he does become famous, you can have the pleasure of saying you knew about him from before).
And as always, you can convert any of his songs on Youtube to an mp3 file for your iPod, here.
