Throwback Thursday: Citizen Cope

Throwback and a half! I feel like all brooding kids listened to soulful troubadour Citizen Cope for the duration of a few rainy days in their youth. Popular throughout the early millennium, Clarence Greenwood's rootsy blues - in the form of emotion-packed anthems "Sideways" and "Let The Drummer Kick - ruled indie airwaves and college dorms during the wave and reign of adult-contemporary artists like Ben Harper, Jack Johnson and John Butler.

I was partial to the easy listening sounds of Cope, picking pieces of his discography to stay with me throughout the years. This 2006 beat, although not a runaway hit - might actually be my favourite. Oozing all sorts of ache from his sultry vocals and neo-soul beat, something about "Somehow" and the best of Cope's songs maintains that delicious reggae-tinge that he and his peers infused over the years.
