[30 Day Song Challenge] Day 18: A Song I Wish I Heard On The Radio
When I saw Day 18, I immediately thought of “OFD (Originally From Dorchester)” by Bryan McPherson. My brother produced the album the song is on, Fourteen Stories, and when I heard “OFD” for the first time, I couldn’t resist jumping up and down and pumping my fist. The whole album is most excellent, a legacy of Bob Dylan and REM, and it’s a crime that it’s not heard by more people. You can listen to it in its entirety here, and also buy it via the handy links. “OFD” is track 11 if you want to scroll there now.
I TOTALLY agree! Bryan McPherson is undoubtedly one of the most talented, unique and underplayed artists out there today. He has a voice that cries out from his heart & soul, which he uses to spread deep and interesting stories, experiences, and the many lessons learned throughout his life. After you’ve listened to one of Bryan’s albums, I can guarantee that you will never look at life, or music, the same way again.
