Very recently, I discovered the magic that is Kent Odessa and fell in infectious love. And after watching his recently released video for his single "Bo Jacksons," I mean, who wouldn't?
The song? Brilliant. Catchy and sexy, with an 80's meets modern electronic beat and vibe, I couldn't help but dance in my seat. The video? Perhaps tripled the excitement factor as I listened to the song! Filmed in Brooklyn (where he is based), the whole thing is Kent's version of Flashdance-- with a hilarious start and killer ending. Without revealing too much, it gives viewers a specific impression of his humor and style: uncanny, unique, and extravagant. In other words, if you don't watch this video, you are severely missing out.
Doing a bit of research after that, I learned that the solo artist had only one album to date! Titled "Silverdome," the entire album is full of happy feel-good dance gems that will brighten any party or walk to work. "Honeymoon," stands as my next favorite song-- with a swingy beat that will make you smile.
That said, after listening the song and video at least a hundred times, I had to reach out to him to ask more about his body of work, future plans, and of course, his humor and views on life.
...sense of self-deprecation.
