This morning I was searching for something or someone. I didn’t know who but I would know when their voice was coming through the speakers. Twitter almost distracted me from the mission. Thank goodness Twitter didn’t rule the day.
God answers prayers sometimes. He or she answered mine by guiding the cursor to Nicole Bus on Spotify. She has a fairly new song out called “You.” I haven’t been so in love with a song in a little while. The song had me hooked before the 30-second mark.
If you enjoy R & B or Lauryn Hill, then you will probably love Nicole Bus too. She doesn’t sound exactly like Ms. Hill but she might fill that empty space in my heart that Ms. Hill has left. Hopefully, we’ll hear more music from Ms. Bus soon.
Carried Away is a pop-punk band from Toronto. Obviously, they are young and energetic.
The lead singer sounds so sweet and innocent. It makes for an interesting dynamic with the rest of the band. Many bands want what Carried Away has – youth, energy and a singer with a candy-coated voice.
There are tons of bands with singers that sound wise beyond their years. Someday Carried Away will sound like three old sages but that day is not today.
Carried Away has several videos on YouTube and website with cool merch. Don’t forget to listen to their music and watch their videos.
Strawberry candy is not my favorite candy but the song “Strawberry Candy” by Elesa Marmo is pretty cool. If I had to base my love of candy on this song, then I would be in love with strawberry candy.
Long Island native Marmo had the following to say about her latest song:
“This song I wanted to be really fun and just completely sarcastic. I wanted to capture the feeling of being “ghosted” but in a whole other view where instead of making the person upset it sort of gives them a reason to keep trying. I brought this song to Greg Almeida who produced the track, with just a voice memo of my vocal melody and some piano chords and we sat in his room and just made the song come alive and we experimented with different sounds and sound bites like the dial tones and phone operator voice.”
You can find the song on all digital platforms. If you have time, check out her previous album, Clear Blue.
Do you guys miss that time in your life when you’re in your 20s and unbelievably single? You don’t have to answer to anyone except your boss and bills.
Of course, your love life may be more dramatic than you’d like. Do you really know what love is? Do you even want to know?
Nashville duo, John and Joe, have a new single, “Honeyman.” It is a bit reminiscent of “Footloose,” which I love.
They wonder if it’s worth it to be committed to someone who may not be that into you. You might not be that into them either. Commitment is no joke. Sometimes, I can’t even commit to my cup of coffee and I love coffee.
My favorite phrase lately is “I’m not married to it.” I’m not married to a daily routine, my job or the bathroom decor. I was married once. Why do people get married anyway? Commitment is not for everyone I guess.
Check out John and Joe’s single on soundcloud or YouTube.
