The reason I came across this artist is that my son (Bailey) worked on this video of him. It’s a good pop/rock song and I thought I would pass it along. It’s a good song…give it a chance. Bailey worked as the DoP and Colorist.
This is from Spotify:
Raised in Minneapolis, 20 year old Cort Dingman combines elements of jazz, psychedelia, funk, alternative, blues, and more, into an indie rock sound. Filled with colorful licks, soulful chords, and an improvisational structure, Cort’s songs offer a unique sound that is likely to please your ears.
His cherished relationship with music began when he was 10, when he first picked up the saxophone. He then took a year of piano lessons, and began teaching himself. Not long after, Cort picked up drums, bass, uke, and finally guitar at the age of 16. He began making his own music in the form of Lofi-Jazz around this time, but after branching out in genre, he felt the need to pick the pace of his music up a bit.
One thing that makes Cort stand out is his connection of color to music. Since he began playing, he corresponded colors to each note, due to a condition known as color synesthesia. Cort feels his distinctiveness and use of experimentation is most visible is his most recent work, in the form of upcoming album, “Tinted Vibrations”. This is his most authentic and meaningful project, inspired by vast changes made in his life during this time, struggles he’s come across in his relationships, and an eye-opening realization of what life means to him versus the contemplated triviality of life and the universe itself.
Cort is now based in Nashville, TN, where he continues striving and working toward his dream of making music something he can make the most of in this life.

I saw her alone sitting next to me
The words all seem so pointless but we’ve got nowhere to be
Her eyes were shining bright but were
Afraid to see the light
She keeps me on my toes but I don’t
Know where this’ll go ‘cos
I can’t see through my own eyes
I’d like to think that this is right
And you are everything I’d need but
I’m scared of my own head, and what it makes me think
Your lips shift time, passing by
I don’t wonder why
The plants in her room speak to me as we
Hold each other close
She asks me what I’m thinking and I’ll say that
I don’t know, ‘cos
My mind’s moving way to fast
I try to tell you what I can
And you don’t see what I see
You’re perfect and I’ll always try to
Be just what you need
