5 Good Songs You Never Heard: Part 4

There has been a request for more new song recommendations so here is a continuation of the series featuring good songs that are not well known.  In this edition, most of the songs featured are from artists who I have worked with in the past. The styles here are pop and and electronic.

First is a song by an artist named Mark Crisman.  I found this guy on Myspace back in the day and he had some really excellent music.  I did a little searching recently and didn't find too much new music or news for him, so he might not be recording any new songs. Here is one of his hits called "Me Back Together".
Mark Crisman - Me Back Together
Next is a song by Luke Conard called The Luckiest.  Now hold on, you might have heard of him because he has gained some popularity on Youtube, and you might recognize the song because it is a cover of Ben Folds' The Luckiest, but this song was recorded by Luke back in 2004 before he became popular so not many people have heard it.  I think the song really suits him well and he did a nice job on the cover.
Luke Conard - The Luckiest (Ben Folds Cover)
Here is a song I almost forgot I even had on my computer. I knew I wanted to share a song by this artist named Mixwell because he is incredibly talented and has so many great songs.  While going though my files, I found this gem that was never even released.  It's called Love Life and it's an upbeat sort of reggae vibe with rap and electronic instrumentals. 
Mixwell - Love Life
Mistchiff is an artist known for his hard house dance music but every once in a while he breaks character and makes a song in a different genre.  In this one, Mistchiff showcases his singing voice and narrates a story about a man who showed up at his door, drunk and ready to kill him!  Once you know the lyrics to this, it is a lot of fun to sing along to.
Mistchiff - Mr. John
One of my favorite singers is a woman by the artist name Iza.  She is a Norway native and has the potential to be a huge singing sensation.  Iza has done a lot of collaboration work, but as far as I know she has not pursued much in the way of a solo career.  I have done much searching but she does not seem to have much of  a presence online to showcase her songs which is unfortunate.  I thought I would help by sharing one of her songs here.  Although she does a lot of collaboration with hip hop and electronic music, this one is an acoustic number.
Iza - Strong
Hope you enjoy these songs. Feel free to leave a comment below!
