I won’t lie, I consider yacht rock a prestige genre that deserves its due. There are just some musical geniuses at work in Kenny Loggins, Michael McDonald, Steely Dan and more. There’s a skill to tap into that smooth zone mindset and bring harmony. That being said I get where you’re coming from about pulling out of the stupor. There is such a thing as too much rock on the yacht.

All to say, one artist that I am loving lately is Jason Joshua, who has a really cool modern take on Chicano soul music. It’s almost like multicultural yacht rock if that makes sense. Hope you enjoy!

Although it’s not new music, “In The Blood” and “Sacrifice” by Robbie Robertson never received much air time and hopefully will some day soon.
