File under: Thing No One Saw Coming. Let’s just allow the soulful singer-songwriter-Taco-John’s-enthusiast to explain it himself: “Sam Cooke has been a guiding force in my artistic development for my entire life. Even before I knew he was the man behind songs like ‘Cupid’ and ‘(What A) Wonderful World’ I was singing along to every word as a child listening to oldies radio. Throughout my younger years I got more and more obsessed with his ability to write melodically easy-going pop songs that gave way to a less obvious, darker lyrical pain. His songs were onions I wanted to peel.”
