JOHNNY STIMSON, “Flower”
I first got to know the voice of Dallas, TX native Johnny Stimson when he surfaced on Kat Krazy’s dance track “Run Run”, which got to #6 on my personal chart a few years back. The Elton John protégé who has toured with the likes of Tori Kelly has this time self-released “Flower”, an enchanting, sexy, soulful slice of indie pop that should not go unnoticed. It’s a delicate tribute to someone special that Johnny wrote, produced and mixed. You can easily put “Flower” side-by-side next to anything recent by L.A.’s Axel Mansoor, about whom I’ve written much in these blog pages. “Flower” is ideal for inclusion in a Sunday set of quiet, acoustic songs that will make you smile.
