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.

New Music: Paul McDonald – Bright Lights

It was Paul McDonald’s unique voice that landed him the 8th place on America Idol (Season 10), even though he didn’t take home the grand prize he did take the experience and made it his own. Before AI, McDonald was working steadily  touring with his bands Hightide Blues and The Grand Magnolias. If that wasn’t enough to keep him busy in 2012,  he formed yet another band with ex-wife Nikki Reed and they released an EP called  ‘The Best Part’ that had some Billboard and iTunes success which caused more people to take notice his songwriting abilities.

Even with all the success with his various bands, McDonald has been working on a solo album. He just released his new single ‘Bright Light’ and has a Kickstarter campaign in support of his untitled solo album he plans to release in 2015.

I have to say I LOVE this new single!

Bright Lights’ is a great catchy song that will definitely be added to my playlist. Silly as it sounds it’s the type of song that stays in your head and makes you burst out into song at any moment. After listening to Bright Lights its safe to say Paul McDonald is no longer pegion-hold in the coutry/rock genre, this song reflects his songwriting abilities has grown and willing to take chances. Each time I listen to this song I become excited about his upcoming album!

As an indie supporter, I’ve learned putting a CD together isn’t cheap. I know artists who have sold almost all their worldly possessions just to raise funds to either tour or make an album. So when I hear about Kickstarter or Go Fund Me campaigns I try to get the message out as well as donate. I’m far from rich and can’t plop down hundreds of dollars so I donate what I can and  I think every little bit helps and the artists appreciates the effort.

So with that said please take a moment and check out his Kickstarter campaign —-> PAUL McDONALD KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN! 

 

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.
