Which of these three songs could make your playlist? 

If you’re a new music lover too, here’s a few songs I’ve had stuck in rotation for different reasons.  Enjoy!

In a Singer/Songwriter Mood? Ed Sheeran‘s “A Team”

Love that lyric “It’s too cold outside for angels to fly.”

Feeling a little edgey?  Paramore‘s “Still Into You

So simple and true “…After all the butterfly’s I’m still into you.”

Need a little Indie pep in your step?  RAC’s “Hollywood”

Tweet me, or comment: What’s on your playlist?  Could any of these make your playlist?

Have you heard “Girls Love Beyoncé“? (Drake’s version of Destiny’s Child’s “Say My Name”)  

Remember that song “Say My Name” from Destiny’s Child?  I bought the single when I was back in school.  I used to listen to it on repeat of course.  Rapper Drake just did his version using the hook featuring James Fauntleroy (who’s solo sound is cool too).  A modern male perspective.  Gentlemen, can you relate?  My young ladies, what do you think?  Is hardcore gangster rap fading out and a more honest perspective on the horizon?

Random Night Out: VIP Tickets to Lianne La Havas (London’s Soulful Singer/Songwriter)

Pleasant surprise!  Random story about how I ended up in VIP at Lianne’s concert.  My friend’s cousin (who I met a couple days prior) texts me at 9PM.  He has an extra ticket to see London singer/songwriter Lianne La Havas.  The concert is going to start in 15 minutes!  I grab a quick dry kale salad…it was so dry!!…and jump into a cab downtown.  As I walk up the dimly light steps into the concert venue, I hear Lianne singing.  As I wait by the steps/entrance, a couple who is leaving asks if I want to take their VIP passes since they have to go.  Yes please!  My new friend and I head on up to VIP for some photo opps, then down to the ground level where the root of the crowd energy is already boiling.  What a fantastic and surprising night!  In the flow of life; some things you can’t plan.

Lianne La Havas was great live.  The tone of her voice was rich with a nice edge.  Great energy from the audience.  The stage setup was simple.  Acoustic set, good songs with strong lyrics and a powerful voice.  The entire concert hall was singing along.  It’s good to know that pure music from someone’s heart without all the gimics is still appreciated.  I am inspired by tonight’s show.  Can’t wait to write more songs for my project and with other talented artists.
