The tension that can arise between a musician’s rootless lifestyle and a relationship back home is an oft-discussed dilemma with no one-size-fits-all solution… unless, that is, you’re lucky enough to have a significant other as low-maintenance as the girl RaSun addresses on She’s the One, a standout cut off his new Alone Again LP. As on the San Francisco native’s previous features, producer/ladies’ man Don Juan C mans the boards, serving up a smooth but upbeat piano-acoustic guitar instrumental as RaSun describes a woman who doesn’t give him grief when he returns from months on the road, but instead makes the most of the time they do have together – yep, sounds like a keeper to me. Nigerian-born, Atlanta-based singer Naira plays the female role, assuring her man, “When you come back home… I will hold you down.” RaSun’s clearly got a good thing going – will it last? And what’s the deal with that ominous album title, Alone Again? To find out, pick up a copy of his freshman set, released on New Year’s Day and available now in stores and online.
