Matthew Mayfield

Another one of my musical obsessions – Matthew Mayfield….

From Birmingham, AL….think Dave Matthews meets Eddie Vedder.

Love.

Matthew Mayfield has a new album out…’Now You’re Free’….so so good. Brilliant.

Monday Monday

Bob White is doing for those of us who actually work for a living, just as Rebecca Black did for teenagers.

Monday. Back to work. It’s all about surviving.

Taylor Dayne

Music Flashback: On this day back in 1990, Taylor Dayne went to No.1 on the US singles chart with the Diane Warren song ‘Love Will Lead You Back’….

Loved that song.

And why stop at just one Taylor song?

And because it’s on my brain, I leave you with this thought…Fergie a la Black Eyed Peas reminds me of Taylor Dayne. An earth shattering revelation I know.

The New Records

I have a soft spot for local unsigned bands – and this band from Ottawa – a bunch of teenagers – have an amazing first debut single that they’ve released.

They are called The New Records. The single is called ‘Faster and Faster’.

Brilliant.

Rihanna & Jennifer Nettles

Another musical hook up from last night’s ACM Awards that I absolutely loved….Rihanna and Jennifer Nettles performing California King Bed.

Steven & Carrie

One of my favourite moments from last night’s ACM Awards

Steven Tyler & Carrie Underwood doing ‘Walk This Way’.

Amazing.

Norway’s Got Talent

Sometimes reality talent shows find ‘gems’.

Gives me chills. Was not expecting that voice. Like Paul Potts and Susan Boyle before her…you find the most amazing voices in the most unexpected people.

From Norske Talenter 2011, 27 year old Gro Marit Larsen,

Massive Attack

This is the new single by Massive Attack – ‘Paradise Circus’ from their new album Heligoland.

Firefly

Another great club track by Mr. Oakenfold…

Paul Oakenfold feat. Matt Goss – Firefly

Hybrid

From Hybrid this is the single ‘Break My Soul’ from the Disappear Here album.

Love the use of the full orchestra.

And here is the title track from the album…
