In this new entry in our ‘Diamonds In The Rough’ category, we want to introduce you to upcoming artist Ark Woods and his brand new single titled “Slide On You”.
Ark Woods’ music is affecting, funky, and infinitely memorable. His lyrics present an unflinching account of his experiences and beliefs, covering everything from social anxiety and depression, to love and commitment, to domestic violence, police brutality, and the Black Lives Matter movement. His sound is his own and ‘a stunning combination of funk and hip-hop that will continue to set him apart and elevate his profile with each release. With an ear for groovy instrumentals and impressive flows, he makes putting together high-quality music seem easy’ (Ones To Watch).
His influences include fellow Hawaiian Bruno Mars, the Soul Train era, and J. Cole while his combination of message and music—in the great tradition of Sam Cooke and Marvin Gaye—is captivating listeners at a rapid pace.
