Matt Corby: Monday (audio video)

Its a known fact that Matt Corby has been the Musical Prince in my heart since I saw him perform at Sxsw in 2011.  Sadly, Matt been off the grid for more than a year….but if you thinkg about it…..he performed at nearly every festival in the UK & Australia, it’s no wonder why he needed a break. During that time he went back into writers mode….and released his new single ‘Monday‘.

And with new music = live shows!

That’s right Matt will be performing live in Australia, so check out his site for more date information!

Be sure to check out the new single on iTunes, YouTube and Spotify.

Listen to new song ‘Monday’ here:

Honestly there is no reason why this song isn’t added to your collection!

Music Monday: Menage

Usually I’m introduced to a band during live events and then I’ll search for their studio work (spotify and/or available CDs). The opposite effect has occurred when I first listened to Toronto based, Menage, Christmas song and then checked out their other music on Soundcloud. I was suddenly overwhelmed with their melodies and lyrics and at that moment I hoped they would come to the the LA area soon.

A few months later my wish was granted when they played a week in the SoCal area but of course availability was against me. Just when I thought my chances were over, I got a ticket for their very last show at the Hotel Cafe. I really could not contain my joy to finally Menage took the stage and it was magical!

I was so happy I was able to see them live because they put on one helluva show! I seriously love the way Bela and Fernando’s voices blend together and it makes me ache to hear more. And I have to say this….nicest people group of musicians!! It was great to see them talk to everyone who hung out afterwards. Finding a band who appreciates their fan base is harder than you realize. Those little moments go a long way with me. So if they’re playing in your area you have to check them out – you will not be disappointed.

Video: Time in a Bottle – Little Red Lung (Jim Croce cover)

Little Red Lung

Over the weekend Little Red Lung teased a new video and today my Christmas finally arrived for me! The song performed is a cover of Jim Croce’s Time in a Bottle, which was filmed in L.A.’s Blaster Master Productions studios.

When Zoe of Little Red Lung sings – I listen! Her voice is delicate yet strong, she makes you feel so many emotions.

Her voice is EVERYTHING! 

I simply cannot wait for the new album.

Music Monday: Falling for Daniel Champagne

20141116_201231

A couple of weeks ago I went to Santa Barbara to see Bobby Long in concert. (It was an amazing show, btw…) I was unaware there was going to be an opening act. I happened to be getting a cold and I set outside to get some fresh air – but I am so glad that I stepped back inside in time to catch this gentleman perform.

His name is Daniel Champagne. I have seen many concerts and show where people play different things to make the sounds of drums and/or beats, such as wooden boxes, trash cans, etc. But Daniel uses his guitar. I have never seen anything like it. I was blown away by his talent.

I managed to get an 8:13 video of his last song of the night. I know it’s long but it’s totally worth the watch.

Daniel Champagne – Live at SOhO, Santa Barbara, November 16th

You can find more of Daniel’s music on his website. You will find all of his social media links there as well.

Have you ever seen anyone play like this before? What do you think? Let me know below.

Music Monday: Gets Me Arise – Ko-Lition

KO-Lition
I’ve never been a fan of rap, granted I enjoy certain songs by Snoop, Eve, Nikki Minaj, Eminem, Jay-Z or Tupac (and I tolerate Kanye). Don’t get me wrong I think rapping takes true talent, in order to get lyrics to flow properly with the melody you need to have talent. And as much as I admired this talent it just never resonated with me. But I was really surprised how much I enjoyed watching KO-lition at the Artist In Music Award show in 2013 and the fascination began and a year later its safe to say –  I.LOVE.THEM!

Gets Me Arise is such a kick ass song, I play often especially when I feel girly and sexy. I strongly encourage anyone in the New York City area to be sure to check out KO-lition’s live show. I figure if I can fall in love with them during a 5 minute set, I would lose my mind after a full 45 minutes!

KoLition Inauguration

Don’t forget The Inauguration of KO-Lition begins July 22nd and if the songs on this upcoming CD are nearly as good as Gets Me Arise and other songs on Soundcloud, my musically world will explode in happiness.
