23 Feb

All day I have been on a Remi Miles kick and can’t get enough of his four-song Under Light Symphonies EP. Give a listen below and judge for yourself. You should also give a listen to “Something.”

New Music: Thelma Plum – “Around Here”

3 Jul

It’s a good day for new music so why not share my latest obsession, Thelma Plum.  Personally I think you’re going to fall in love with her sweet and soulful sound, just like I did.  The 18 year old is the latest gem to blossom out of Australia and I suggest you give a listen to her EP, Rosie, immediately but in the mean time, give a listen below to “Around Here.”

 

New Music: Zach Heckendorf – “All The Right Places”

25 Apr

Let’s chalk singer-songwriter Zach Heckendorf as a name to keep an eye on.  He has played to thousands at Colorado’s legendary Red Rocks Amphitheater and has shared stages with John Butler Trio, Rodrigo y Gabriella, Brandi Carlile, Guster, Mat Kearney, Barenaked Ladies, and is slated to open for Michael Franti this summer! Plus his record, The Cool Down, he recorded with Brett Dennen.  Not too shabby for a 19-year old.

 

New Music: Alex Clare – “Too Close” aka Microsoft Internet Explorer Song

27 Mar

If you’ve seen the new Microsoft Internet Explorer commercials and wondered what that song is that you find yourself enamored with, it’s “Too Close” by Alex Clare.  Yes, me, a person who is not a fan of dubstep actually enjoys this track.  But really it is the soulful voice of the British singer-songwriter throughout his record, The Lateness Of The Hour, that has me constantly listening to the disc that dabs all over from soul, dubstep, electronic and jazz.  Personally I dig “Hands Are Clever,” “I Love You” and “Whispering” plus he covers Prince’s “When Doves Cry” but what really is a HUGE bonus on the record is it was produced by Diplo and Switch aka Major Lazer.  How wicked awesome is that!

Now Playing: Benjamin Francis Leftwich – “Shine”

24 Oct

My latest song on repeat , “Shine,” courtesy of English singer-songwriter Benjamin Francis Leftwich off his debut album Last Smoke Before The Snowstorm which was released over the summer.

Countdown to Bonnaroo: 22 Days – Artist of the Day: Amos Lee

18 May

I still can’t believe I haven’t had the chance to see Amos Lee perform live, that is until a little more than three weeks from now.  The Philly singer-songwriter brings it all to the table, a little folk, soul, country and R&B to project a magical sound that is soothing and relaxing.   Currently supporting the release of his fourth album, Mission Bell, released earlier this year, Amos Lee continues to get better and better.

Two shows at Bonnaroo

SATURDAY 5:30 PM – 6:00 PM – SONIC STAGE

SUNDAY 2:30 PM – 3:45 PM – WHICH STAGE
