It doesn’t need to be a rainy day to soak in Arthur Gunn’s new song. Aptly titled “Rainy Days,” his voice, which took him to second place on American Idol in 2020, envelopes you from within, like a good cup of hot tea will do. “Hope the rain will fill your thirst wherever you may be,” he sings, swinging from Bob Dylan power lines. While he certainly nods to folk tradition, there’s just something so wonderfully unique and vivacious about his storytelling. It’s hooked into the past, yet never tethered to it totally. Just surrender to the beauty.
