[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.
