We Built This City

Aron Wright & Jill Andrews
“We Built This City”

Don’t worry, Marconi still plays the mambo. I heard this cover a few weeks ago on Grey’s Anatomy and had to post it. Grey’s is always the finder of amazing covers.

Daughter – Smother

Daughter
“Smother”

Another song I caught at the tail end. I believe it was used with a contemporary dance to help emote pain or suffering. It worked. Enjoy!

From the EP If You Leave

Lee Dewyze
“Open Your Eyes”

I just love this song. The vocals/chords remind me a country song I can’t quite place, but this song feels a bit too ethereal to stick it into one genre of music. This is the theme song to a sad movie, somewhere. I’m sure of it.

Kodaline – All I want

Kodaline
“All I want”

One of my favorite songs from the previous year. I spent a lot of time soaking this in, as well as the video. It’s as visually stunning (and tells a story) as the song beautiful musically. If you like the song, you’ll likely love the video. You can watch Kodaline’s video here.

The Well Pennies
“All My Loving”

New beginnings. Who better to start with than a classic, with a twist? I wouldn’t normally post a Beatles song, but this is a cover, and really well done.

2014. We’re back!

If you’re still checking this site, you’re in luck. I’m about to start posting more songs. Not every day, but hopefully twice a week. We’ll see how it goes. I’ll at least like to have a new song up on Mondays.

For those who don’t know, in 2012 I moved to Paris, France. It’s been one heck of a busy year+, but I’m starting to get settled and I’d like to get back to posting wonderful music for you.

I’ve been away long enough.

Enjoy!

The Cinematic Orchestra
“To Build A Home”

I’ve heard this song before, have always loved it, but never had the chance to discover who it was until now. Now I share it with you.

Mindy Gledhill
“Bring me close”

I ran across this song while watching the Olympics. It was featured in a fruit of the loom commercial, and it’s just pure gold.

I first heard of Mindy when I was listening to Dance/House music. Kaskade sampled her song “eyes”. If you haven’t heard it you should, It’s amazing.

Matinee – Hurts to Purr

Hurts to Purr
“Matinee”

A kind of reset. I’ve tried to resume uploading music to the blog, and have had a few failed restarts. I’m making no promises going forward, but I’m trying.

“It’s a perfect day for a Matinee….”

This is a beautiful tune. I’m a sucker for the warm tones of a lone piano. Nothing is too overdone in this song, and it just hit me right. I hope you enjoy.

James Morrison makes it real.

James Morrison
“You make it real”

I stumbled onto James Morrison tonight while browsing around Spotify. After listening to the CD version, I dug around on the interwebs and found an acoustic version that I liked better. I usually like acoustic takes better. I was listening to his raspy voice, and the ease with which the music flows from him, and knew he was perfect for the blog here. There’s just so much soul emanating from this guy. He’s everything I wish I could be as a guitar player and singer. He’s so much more than just this song, though. Listen to some of his other stuff too.
