Option 22 Brings Us The Change

 

Option 22 The Change

Option 22 is a brilliant band composed of multi-talented artist. Their latest album, The Change, introduces listeners to a collection of songs that are not only a pleasure to listen to, but that contain important messages for us all! The album cover is calming and gives you a sense of the type of music that is on the album. One of the most interesting things about this album that really sets it apart from others, is it’s ability to entertain while still telling a story.

There is not one song on the album that won’t have you singing along and thinking about it’s message. The band is comprised of some very talented people. Lori McKinney is vocals and drums, Jordan Furrow is drums and guitar, Brandon Dunn is bass, keys and guitar, and Robert Blankenship is guitar, didgeridoo, shamisen, banjo, bass, and keys! With a band that talented, it’s no wonder The Change is such an inspiring album. The opening song on the album is Some Say, and we get the feeling that “many” will be saying that they love this album! One thing is for sure, The Change by Option 22 is a sure hit, and a favorite of everyone at Toast Pop!

One mix in particular is making a scene on Vimeo and has already been chosen as a Staff Pick. This mix celebrates over 50 years of the cassette tape by combining classic music with some of the top hits of today’s time. It’s a brilliant combination that we think you will agree, works very well together.

The artist who were featured in this mix were talented, but think about it, the person or people behind making the mix have to be talented as well. To take songs that don’t sound like they would go together well and put them into one song and have it sound fantastic takes a lot of skill! So go ahead and enjoy one of the coolest mixes on the internet!

We are always excited when we find out about an artist who somehow slid under our radar, and Didi is no exception. The lyrics say you can’t fight fire with gasoline, how true. Lyrics are just as important as the voice in my opinion, yet Did has both, fantastic lyrics and a beautiful voice. Don’t miss out on getting her new single, we know we didn’t!
