Once in a blue moon, I stumble into an artist that I resonate with so much - like an artistic kindred spirit who speaks my language effortlessly while I lose my tongue and forget completely how to speak.
Speechless, out of breath, at awe.
That's how I feel about Tom Rosenthal's music and especially - his storytelling and writing.
I can name a few of my current favorites playing non-stop on my Spotify, but this ballad and its beautiful video captures the melancholic tone of Rosenthal, his deeply poetic storytelling mastery and childlike visual language.
To say I am moved by his work - is an understatement.
I am grateful this artist is out there doing his thing - in a world so infested with shallow social media and so-called 'artists' angling for attention instead of real connection...
Tom Rosenthal is the exceptional exception.
This is 'The Boy'.
