I was unfamiliar with Jhon Myquale for some time, but after he hit us with Big Foot Blues I knew he was someone to look out for (I wasn’t able to post for various reasons.) I was very excited to see his new release While You Were Sleeping hit my stream. I also noticed he was added as an artist to watch on Pigeons & Planes, which was great to read about.
While You Were Sleeping has a tropical soundscape, complete with chimes and bongo drums. It’s an interesting backdrop for Jhon, but he performs beautifully. He not only raps, but riffs, and sings a bit. I’m looking forward to seeing what’s next for this unique Chicago artist.
