[embed width="560"][/embed]


Ghanian singer-songwriter Kae Sun has just released the first video for his new EP Outside the Barcode (which we'll be premiering in a few weeks!). A down to earth blend of soul, reggae, and folk, Kae Sun’s style is heavy on message and rooted in the simple but harmonious tradition of a lone man and his guitar. The video for “When the Pot” was done for the Southern Souls music collective. Southern Souls brings together a number of talented artists residing all over southern Ontario. After you watch the video you might want to check them out. Kae Sun’s EP will be out later this month so stay tuned.
