“Don’t Stop” by Gin Wigmore!
This is a cheerful, addicting song with a unique spin, hit home by the charmingly intriguing vocals of Gin Wigmore (a singer-songwriter by way of New Zealand). The answer to how I found out about this song is pretty easy…from the Lowe’s ad that aired on TV, embedded below (not only does it utilize great music, but it has FANTASTIC art direction and a great hook…it’s one of the best commercials I’ve seen in years). Lowe’s was kind enough to put the artist and song at the end of the commercial, and unlike most cases where that happens and the song ends up being underwhelming (and then when I love the song, they don’t list it at the end of the commercial…sigh…), in this case I was head over heels in love with the music they chose. It goes perfectly with the commercial (and brings it a very fresh, innovative vibe that really sells it, if you’ll pardon the pun…), and what’s even better, it’s a bright, outstanding song on its own.
Thanks for reading! And thanks for all who commented for the giveaway. (Even though it’s over…comments are ALWAYS welcomed. )
