Willis Earl Beal - Too Dry To Cry

 I'd like to begin this post by apologizing to people living in the apartment below me.  My bad about all the foot stomping (this will make sense in a second).

I'm not going to pretend like I know a whole lot about Willis Earl Beal, I just stumbled across this song and I had one of those moments where a song just mesmerizes you.  The 'Stomp, Clap' beat just drives this song forward while Willis Earl Beal's soulful, gospel-style vocals spin a tale of heartbreak.  The raw emotion behind Beal's vocals reminds me of soul/blues legends such as Gil Scott-Heron and BB King.

So give this song a listen and I challenge you to keep your heel planted to the ground.

Good luck.
