Song Premiere: John Fatum - "Pounding of the Rain"

We're proud to present the premiere of NYC based singer/songwriter John Fatum's debut single, "Pounding of the Rain." This may be John's debut solo single, but he's been kicking around for a while now as the co-founder of Dala Records and the percussionist for both The Rad Trads and Fatum Brothers. While those bands are much more jazz based, he's going in a much for folky direction for his solo album.

"Pounding of the Rain" is a laid back track, definitely on the more mainstream side of the current folk scene. I don't mean mainstream in a bad way, so maybe accessible is a better term. It has a touch of a Willy Mason vibe, and has the rarity in folk where the vocals and verses are just as compelling as the instrumental parts. It's a truly fully fleshed out song, with impeccable production for an independent musician. It's great to see such as accomplished and seasoned musician branching out in a new direction at such a young age. This album will definitely be one to watch.

"Pounding of the Rain" is sue out on September 4th. For more information on John Fatum, check out John's website, and follow him on Twitter. Listen to "Pounding of the Rain" below.
