If you like the mellow vibes of The XX, you will like the mellow vibes of London Grammar. The trio is getting ready to dominate the music world and when you hear the amazing set of pipes lead singer Hannah Reid has, you will not wonder why. London Grammar played an intimate set at Brooklyn’s Baby’s All Right on January 15, 2014 and the place was packed to the rafters. They played for just about an hour and one of the highlights was their cover of Chris Isaak’s “Wicked Games.” Excuse the heads in the way and the few times the video may jump. You do the best you can in these situations.
2014 is here and there is already a must hear recording artist – Britain’s 23 year old soul sensation John Newman. He’s having quite a week after making his US TV debut, getting two Brit Award nominations, performing a sold out show at the legendary New York venue Bowery Ballroom and most importantly, having his photo taken with ME!
The encore for John Newman’s slaying set on January 9, 2014 was “Love Me Again,” and you are going to love his voice, his hair (might be hard to tell in the video, but he has a little blond stripe in the front that is super cute) and his dancing. Best of luck to you in 2014 and beyond John!
Congratulations! By seeing this post, you’ve stumbled onto a blog that in 5 short years has written over 6,500 posts primarily about art, music and celebrities and other miscellaneous things I’ve experienced in person. Every post features world exclusive photos. What a concept!!! If you can find another site on the net that has these types of characteristics, please put me in touch with them. I’m always looking for people who inspire me. The sites I tend to see on the internet tend to be people who have no opinion of their own to voice until they receive a press release which they can straight up regurgitate. I find that very sad and uninspiring.
In the meanwhile, here’s a video I took of the all mighty MGMT performing the brilliant track “Congratulations” live at Barclays Center on December 13, 2013.
As you know, I am in love with the music of Jessie Ware. Her voice is silky smooth and her grooves are good for chillin’ out, dancing or just simply basking in the glory of her slow jams. You’ll be seeing a lot more of Jessie Ware on these pages before the year is over as she will be at the top of many of my year end lists. And how could she not be? Watch this video of her performing “If You’re Never Gonna Move” (formerly known as “110%”) and if you don’t absolutely fall head over heels in love with Jessie Ware, I don’t even know what to say. If Jessie Ware doesn’t become a global phenomenon, there is just no justice in the world. So with that, I will leave you to turn up the volume and enjoy “If You’re Never Gonna Move” live by Jessie Ware, at Irving Plaza in New York on November 4, 2013.
