Ok I first came across Emma Beau is when she was touring with the late great John English. I know Christie Lamb who was also part of that. So this is Emma first song off her debut album and it’s really great and the clip is excellent. I for one will be getting the album. Sounds like it will be a cracker if tunes like this are to go by.

 

Meeting and hanging out with Katie Ladd was awesome. She is a very talented lady with loads of talent. And I wanted to give her some more love on my site and if you haven’t seen the interview watch it here I did with her. Yes my photography is getting some what better.

So my amazing talented friend Alicia Sky has released an awesome cover video on YouTube of a Backstreet Boys song which I think is pretty cool.

She has done a whole range of awesome covers video like Unwritten by Natasha Bedingfield

Alright two bands I love have new music out. Smoking Martha who are now on their way to a European tour which is way cool have a new video clip.

 

I’ve known Lisa Salvo for a while now and think she is one of the finest songwriters in the country as well as being an amazing singer. On Diamond new single How is a masterpiece and a must have in your collection.

I wanted to give my friend Destiny Love some more love. She is an inspirational switched on lady who really does put herself out there. She is kind and considerate as well as being caring which I see from the way she writes and all. She kindly does the voice overs for my video content and I will be continuing to use her.  She just to me breathes positivism.  She just a person who has her heart on her sleeve, she passionate, inspiration and a person whom I will continue to support.  I love being inspired by her and all that she is achieving. Yes we all have our moments of weakness and self doubt I had one this morning. But we are all in this together and letting some one know you’re there for them and ask them how they are doing and if they are OK.  She has become a beautiful inside and out kind soul with so much positivism and inspiration. If only I could write as good as she does. She has achieved so much so far and will continue to do more and create and inspire with whom she is and what she does.

Following on from a unbelievable six months since her breakout single Chasing Butterflies took over the airfares, Adelaide’s MANE will unleash her new single ‘Save Yourself’ next week, premiered via triple j ‘good nights’ on Monday October 1st ahead of it’s official release on the 3rd, which will also see the announcement of her only 2018 headline tour, supported by Pinkish Blu.

‘Love that opening chord. From there, it only gets better. Great vocal, really seductive playing and sounds dropping in and out, and the song manages to be both dark and uplifting. Not an easy combo to pull off. Nice work.’ – Richard Kingsmill, triple j

With a haunting and high energy live set, MANE’s explosive indie pop is something that has to be seen to be fully believed. Reviews have compared her to Florence and the Machine and Lorde, with the parallels drawn between the bold vocals and catchy tunes to sing and dance along to. Having toured nationally with KINGSWOOD, played Groovin the Moo, Spin Off, Bigsound and Brisbane Festival and set to perform alongside The Kooks, Last Dinosaurs and Winston Surfshirt at the inaugural Beach Life festival in Adelaide later this year, the live show has gone from strength to strength, and you can’t help but have a great time when MANE’s performing.

‘MANE…with a mixture of deep looming vocals, comparable to the likes of Lorde.’ – Live review, AMNPLIFY

Paige Court, the powerhouse behind the MANE moniker said that ‘Save Yourself was written to channel the difficulty of watching someone make the same mistakes over and over again while becoming really expectant of the people around them to pick up the mess. As someone who deeply cares about that person it’s hard to walk away from that’ She goes on to explain ‘You don’t want to enable them but you also don’t want them to feel abandoned. When it becomes detrimental to your well being the solution becomes pretty obvious though. Having gone through a self destructive cycle myself the song really resonates with me on both sides of the story now’. The second of her singles recorded with Tony Buchen (The Preatures, Mansionair and Montaigne) in LA and mastered by Brian Lucey (The shins, Artic monkeys, The Black Keys) it’s seen a clear step up in the direction and production detail. Take a listen for yourself.

LA-based duo Young Futura have just released their new single ‘Wallflower’.

Wallflower is an ode to the positive impact of music and its ability to empower and alter one’s state of mind – encouraging the listener to lose themselves amongst the palpable vibe that the duo conjure.

Musically it sits in an energy filled pocket between grooving disco and cutting edge hip hop with a stellar pop song writing foundation. The true element of genius comes from relying on these familiar and iconic sounds, yet arranging them with a modern finesse that sounds so fresh and exciting.

On the narrative behind Wallflower, Young Futura share:

“Wallflower came naturally. It was one of those songs that we wrote overnight where everything was smooth and organic. We spent more time fine tuning it in the studio than writing it. It was such a lovely process.”

Young Futura symbolizes the alliance between two artists: Washington DC’s Beau Young Prince and French producer Futura. The names Young and Futura are close to the hearts of both of these artists as they happen to be their names given by birth. Influenced by their respective cities and cultures, Young Futura translates their surroundings and experiences into smooth and enriching musical melodies giving listeners a groovy funk and future hip-hop cocktail to sip on; representing a charming euphonious collaboration.

Young Futura performed at SXSW, All Things Go Music Festival, and multiple clubs throughout NY, DC and LA. The duo attracted the likes of the film industry and composed the main piece track of the movie Nobody Walks in LA, receiving the Critic’s Choice Award at the Newport Film Festival as well as Best Soundtrack Award at the Long Island Film Festival.

Recently their new single Wallflower has been selected to be part of one of Microsoft’s biggest video game release, Forza 4. Debut EP Patience turned heads and caught ears across the musical spectrum, achieving millions of streams on Spotify as well as tastemaker support from the likes of Magnetic Mag and Afropunk among others.

Futura’s multi-platinum track record boasts work with 50 Cent, GZA, Kylie Minogue, OK GO, Trey Songz, Lloyd Banks, Raekwon and Asher Roth.

‘Wallflower’ is available now worldwide

So Energizer are making mobile phones now. well a company called Avenir Telecom are making them under license. I currently already use their cables and cases. Can get them here in Australia at Woolworths. but the phones no. The Power Max P600s looks way cool.  It’s an android phone with 7.0 on it. My oneplusone phone currently only has 6.0 and I can’t upgrade it. 4500 mah battery life and a Mediatek helio p25 Octa-Core 2.5 Ghz  CPU.

Your choice of ram and storage. 32gb of storage gets you 3GB of ram. 64gb of storage gets you 6gb of Ram. Dual sim and extra storage up to 256gb. Type C charging port but for me the most thing is that is still has a head phone jack. I still use headphones with a cord. 18:9 screen. Dual main cameras and one front facing camera. The phone looks cool and I for one would love to see them in Australia.
