I like this cat's live feel quite a bit.
With the immeasurable availability of free downloadable music, hip hop artists must spend more time and effort developing who they are as live performers. It's simply the only way can still make a living as musicians. Even the most lucrative artists aren't selling much more than three or four million records per release.
Therefore, artists like Murs who are more than competent live performers stand more of a chance at success.
Lemme go check Murs' tour dates. I wonder if he's going to be in Philly any time soon...
