Free Download One eskimO Music Review and Giveaway (ended)

One eskimO is a critically-acclaimed English band fronted by singer-songwriter Kristian Leontiou and includes musicians Pete Rinaldi (guitar), Jamie Sefton (bass, horns), and Adam Falkner (drums).
     They currently have the #1 adult alternative song called "Kandi" which I'm sure you've heard on the radio.  It is the most played song on adult rock radio for over 4 weeks running.
    Billboard Magazine calls One eskimO's self-titled debut album "...catchy, ambient pop." and Los Angeles Times Magazine hails the song "Kandi" a beautiful, aspirational track.”  The album is available in stores now.  


    MY TAKE ON THE CD: I'm an 80s music girl trying to get into the music of 2010. My teens listen to a lot of fun music.  They are always introducing me to what is cool! Now it's my turn with One eskimO. I'm all for pop rock and I believe that is what One eskimO is being called. I'm a huge fan of the sexy vocals of Kristian Leontiou.  Love the CD title- All Balloons. The T-shirt that goes with the album giveaway is very crazy cool! (gray with balloons).  Of all the songs on the CD, I do love Slip and Simple Day. Chocolate is a song that shows he "gets" his girl...knows to give her space and chocolate! lol The song, Amazing, is just that!

    One eskimO will be opening for Michael Franti & Spearhead in May & June (all shows except Mountain Jam & Mile High Festival).

    I learned that they present One eskimO as a group of animated characters. My daughters and I like the song Kandi, which we often hear on the radio!
