Album Review

I am being completely honest when I say that I’ve never heard anything like it, and that is very hard nowadays. Before I listened to it, I didn’t think I would enjoy it because it’s not a style I listen to very often, but I really did! It just sounds incredible. I think the album artwork is also extraordinary and really reflects the atmosphere created by the album. If you haven’t listened to it, go check it out!

New blog!

If any of you use blogspot, I’ve started posting new music entries on there. So go check it out here :)


Graham Colton
If you love singer/songwriter’s like I do, you will absolutely love Graham Colton. His music incorporates the best of acoustic, rock, catchy melodies and heartfelt lyrics to create musical masterpieces. Check out his album Pacific Coast Eyes, Vol. 2 and you will not regret it.

Stacy Clark

I’ve just rediscovered her music, and I’m enjoying it more than ever. If you’re into music that’s based around piano and vocals (like Sara Bareilles), you’ll love her.


Cause I did enough to show you that I was willing to give and sacrifice / And I was the one who was lifting you up when you thought your life had had enough.

Ed Sheeran, Palais, Melbourne, 3rd August 2012

Whenever I talk to someone about Ed Sheeran, they always say that he is extraordinary and is a talent in his own right, but never explain why. Last night I finally understood the phenomenon and why he deserved to be so successful.

Sheeran was able to control the crowd in such a way that everyone in the room felt the exact same emotions as he was on stage. Last night was the first time I’d ever heard a whole room fall silent for a song, just captivated by his voice and his presence. The one moment that made me completely captivated was when he was singing ‘Wayfaring Stranger’ a cappella, and was able to sing without a microphone and use the acoustics of the Palais. This concert just showed me how talented this man is live because he’s just as good or even better than his recorded material.

The best thing about the concert was that he didn’t change his instrumentation and arrangements for playing live; it was still him and his guitar. This impressed me incredibly, as he didn’t need a band to fall in line with most other live acts. The way he used his loop pedal was if he was making his backing tracks on the spot, and this was both intriguing and entertaining, especially because it showed how much effort he put into creating the best show possible.

If any of you haven’t seen him live, I would jump online and find tickets straight away because you don’t want to miss out on such an incredible artist. For any other Australians, he will be coming back to our shores in February/March next year which is so exciting.

Thank you Ed for the best gig I’ve ever seen in my life.

The radio’s on, you’re tuning me out. I’m trying to speak, you’re turning me down.
Everybody Knows - John Legend

Will Sturgeon - Brightener

The track ‘Sane’ by Brightener is reminiscent of the California beach sound, and just screams to be played all summer. If you haven’t seen any of his other videos, you should check them out because it is really worth it.


They say I was wrong. But I know better, I live my life like I’m dying.
Thirsty Merc - In The Summertime

Derik Nelson

Although he is the guitarist on Glee, he is one of the most talented musicians out there and should be recognised for this. On his originals and covers he plays all the instruments, sings, produces, records and mixes it all. He is more than extraordinary, and I recommend checking out his album North.


Old habits die hard / but I’m too young to die.
Finders Keepers - You Me At Six

One Republic
Their album Waking Up is blowing my mind at the moment. The lyrics and musical arrangements are like nothing I’ve heard before, which is so refreshing for ‘pop’ music.

Aaron Michael Cox

It’s horrible to hear that such a talented and great musician/producer can pass away so young. My prayers go out to his family and friends.
