Emmett Hopkins -- Living on Mars
Casio singer-songwriter/rap -- If you like local music, this is about as local as it gets, as this guy is a student at Stanford and lives in Cedro. He's from Sonoma County and has quite a variety of songs on here everything from piano songwriter ballads to ranchero-style songs in Spanish to MC Paul Barman-esque raps to goofy a capella to weird stories. Most of the songs use keyboard and canned beats -- with songs that are introspective and goofy at the same time. I especially liked the poison oak song and the song about dropping your pants along the side of the road! PICS: 9, 13
