Just a taste...

Well, I know its been a while since I've posted but I've finished my music program and plan on coming back at you in full force with some great new music! Don't get too excited yet as I'm going on vacation (or holiday as they say here in London) for the next three weeks. In the mean time here's just a little taste of what I've been listening to on repeat the last few months.

Daniel Ellsworth & The Great Lakes are no strangers to this blog but they have a new album out that is absolutely fantastic so make sure to go out and check out the rest of the tracks. Here is the single, Sun Goes Out. 

This next artist was introduced to me when a friend posted a picture of the album cover with the caption, "HOW COME NOBODY TOLD ME?" After giving Among Savages a listen I wondered the same thing!! Here is the title track from their album.

And of course a little Nickel Creek. How can I not? I'm just hoping they bring their new tour to London!!

Paolo Nutini's New Album!

The Scotsman named Paolo has a new album out and its a goodie! I first heard Paolo Nutini back when I was working at WMG and quickly became a fan of his music. This new album is definitely my favorite of his releases. His voice has such great grit and soul. Give it a listen on Spotify and if you like it make sure to buy a copy! Its only out in the UK at the moment but I'm sure the U.S. and rest of the world will shortly follow. There is an EP available with a few of the new tracks in the U.S. iTunes store.


 There's even a new video for the track Scream (Funk My Life Up). Its got some great scenes of Los Angeles (tear) and I'm going to be honest and tell you all that I kind of really want one of those leotards with the tinsel sleeves...

Marc Scibilia - Shining Like America (New Video)

As most of you know I've been living in London since September and I'm 2/3 done with my program here! What will happen in July? Who knows!! Though I've been slacking on posting about new music I had to get a few new goodies out for you all to enjoy! Here's a new video from Marc Scibilia who you've seen on the blog before. It just debuted on Country Music Television and includes his dog Lander (any any video with Lander is alright with me)and Marc hearing his single on the radio for the first time. Adorable!

I may be in London but I love some American music!!  Enjoy!

Merry Christmas!!

Well, its official... I am not doing a Christmas playlist this year. I'm back in Los Angeles from London and my days have been filled with visiting friends and family. I'll be even more honest and share that I don't even have a Christmas tree this year! Budget does not allow it but Christmas is more then decorations and presents. My Christmas is spending time with the people I love and the best gift I've gotten so far is my sweet little baby cousin who was born healthy and happy two days ago. However in light of my Christmas playlist I'm sharing a few Christmas videos I've loved that came out this month. Enjoy!

Dan Croll - Home

It has been a long time since I posted last. There's been a lot going on in my life the last few months. In August I quit my job working in the music industry in Los Angeles and moved to London to attend a worship leader academy. I've always been a worship leader but on the side of my other jobs. I was tired of sitting at a desk all day and was ready to focus on the music I feel called to sing, play and write myself.

While I'm here in London for the next year I'll be on the look out for new artist emerging from the UK. I have posted on Dan Croll before but I just love this new video he's released for his song Home especially the shots around London and the trains I now take every day!! The parts with his Grams are precious to boot! Plus you can vote for the video to air on MTV this week here!

Australian band The Paper Kites released last month a beautiful video for their song St Clarity. Something about it provides a peace when you watch. Enough said, just enjoy.

Ivan & Alyosha - "Be Your Man" Music Video

We all know Seattle has a big music scene and was especially popular during the 90s with grunge music. Legend has it record executives were dropping label contracts out of planes over Seattle to any band with plaid shirts and long hair. Ivan & Alyosha on the other hand shows the lighter and happier side of Seattle. This folk rock band has been a favorite of mine since they were giving away their EP for free on They now have a new LP and a new music video for "Be Your Man." This would be my favorite track of Ivan & Alyosha if they didn't sing about California and its many wildfires in their song "Everything Is Burning." I've lived through wildfires raging through my back yard yet I love this state so very much so how could I not love the lyrics, "Why is it every time I come to California its on fire? This is where we should fall in love. There's something in the water."

This new video is so charming and I can't get enough of the bored cheerleaders. Enjoy!
