Hal B1n0 “Sour Grapes”

Hal B1n0

Singer songwriter Hal B1no, from Los Angeles, California, has a really laid back style that reminds us of the likes of Tom Petty, Jack Johnson, Third Eye Blind, and even Maroon 5. His song, ‘Sour Grapes’, released in June this year, is an airy freewheeling song talking about the living life as it’s meant to be lived – to be enjoyed and not caring too much about what others think.

Hal B1no is living the good life on his own terms, and with his video for ‘Sour Grapes’, he shows just how it’s done.
Hal B1no’s complex guitar playing falls somewhere between rock and country – kind of that area where you’d find The Eagles, or Creedence Clearwater Revival – while his lyrics and vocals are a blend of pop and rap. He spits out the verses in fast succession and it’s when the chorus drops on ‘Sour Grapes’ we know we’re alive; Hal B1no’s vocals come into their fullest effect.
‘Sour Grapes’ will be a welcome addition to any summer playlist. You can find Hal B1no (rhymes with Albino) online on his official website, Twitter, and Soundcloud.
