One of my favorite young Cleveland singer-songwriters, Nicholas Megalis, just unveiled his latest song, "Godblessohio."
Even though Megalis, who recently turned 20, splits his time between NYC and Cleveland these days, the two-minute song pays total tribute to our city. "216 reasons to live," he sings over a walking acoustic riff spiced with occasional cymbal crashes.
He also gives shout-outs to Ante Up Audio head Michael Seifert, Michael Archangel (the saint, I presume) and, um, me.
Take a listen:
You can download Megalis' album, I Find It Sexy How You Mislead Me for free here.
You can also help the guy out by ponying up some cash for his cool Praise Be, Hype Machine album, which you can buy here.
