Brooke Fraser's New Single!

Have a mentioned I absolutely adore Brooke Fraser? Not only is she absolutely gorgeous with an incredible voice but I just love what she has done with her music career. She has held on to her roots in worship music with Hillsong while also making the music she wants to make and not falling into the "I'm a Christian so I can only record Christian music" trap. I just love this new turn she is taking with her music. Much edgier and just plain cool. Love. Love. Love. Watch the video for Brooke's new single Psychosocial!

Johnnyswim - Heart Beats

Don't you just hate it when people are incredibly talented musicians, really attractive and all around good human beings?? Nah, me either. Johnnyswim is just that. This gorgeously talented husband and wife duo are out in the world making it a better place with great music and hearts of gold.

This is a great video for their single Heart Beats which also doubles as a Estee Lauder perfume commercial. Well, it could if it wanted to...

Remember that time they went to an orphanage in India to visit all the ridiculously adorable kids and played music for them? See? Hearts of gold.

Aren't those kids just the cutest? And so proud to show their artwork to someone?? My heart.

Hope you enjoyed this beautiful music from Johnnyswim! Make sure to support and buy their music if you did!!

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!
