new music: stream soul singer cs armstrong’s brilliant cover of bobby blue bland’s “ain’t no love”

November 16, 2016

The blues are one of the most underrated genres of music. Among the forefathers, Bobby Blue Bland stands tall amidst giants, because of his profound detail to the emotional content in his lyrics. CS Armstrong had huge shoes to fill with this cover, a song that many have attempted, but few have truly conquered. But Armstrong has conquered. From the electrifying horn section to the fully fleshed choir arrangement all the way down to the booming tenor of CS Armstrong’s own voice, this cover goes above and beyond the call for a spectacular embodiment of blues. Stream the song below and let’s get through hump day on a high note.
