Today’s Song of the Day post is all about Arthur Alligood and specifically the song, “Shouldn’t Be That Hard”. This was a criminally underrated song that flew mostly under the radar of most music fans out there. Arthur has been making great Americana/Folk Rock for more than a decade now. He has appeared on a few past free IVM Compilations and was featured here many times over the years. The song “Shouldn’t Be That Hard” appeared on his 2012 full length, “One Silver Needle”. The Americana influenced folk-rock track takes a turn toward artists like The Wallflowers, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, The Lumineers, The Avett Brothers, and Bob Dylan, while keeping his own style and approach. For an underground, indie, mostly unheard artist, this album was a cut above the rest and took him in places his other independent artist brethren couldn’t quite get to. Solid songwriting and a smooth voice that complimented the instrumentation. Check out “Shouldn’t Be That Hard” below and make sure to support his new endeavors right here on bandcamp.
