Roy Eldridge

Jazz, Jazz oh “Little Jazz”…

This is the legend Roy Eldridge, commonly known as “Little Jazz”. Roy was one of the most talented and innovative trumpet player of all times. His music makes me feel nostalgic about places i´ve never been to, people i´ve never met and an era i never knew.

All my life I’ve loved to battle. And if they didn’t like the look of me and wouldn’t invite me up on the bandstand I’d get my trumpet out by the side of the stand and blow at them from there.”-  Roy Eldridge

Agnes Obel

Agnes is a Danish singer/songwriter, she was raised in a musical environment and therefore has grown up to be a very talented musician. Agnes released her first album Philharmonics in 2010, this powerful album gave her international recognition and gave her prizes such as Best Debut Artist Of The Year and Best Female Artist Of The Year. Her second album Aventine was released in 2013 and there are some rumor about the third one coming out next year.

Her music is a wonderful exquisite combination of classical and contemporary music. Agnes versatility is clear in the way she includes and plays with both styles. Soothing, relaxing, happy music that transport you to a comfort zone, away from chaos, traffic and errands.

“The piano and the singing are two equal things to me – maybe not inseparable but very connected. You can say they are like two equal voices.” Agnes Obel

Crooked Colours

Crooked Colours is an Australian trio who describe their music as electro-acoustic Synth-tronica. Crooked Colours is a young band they have a few singles and an EP In Your Bones, listen to this youngsters because they will very likely be EVERYWHERE soon.

Their music is laid back and at least makes ME feel good and ready for a chill weekend with friends.

Glen Hansard

I´m profoundly in love with this Irish songwriter who you might recognise from the movie Once. Glen Hansard dropped out of school when he was 13 and played in the streets of Dublin looking for a future in the music industry. Since then he has recorded 9 albums and many EPs. His voice is sweet and his chords take me to a calm, worry free zone. His musical and vocal talent is beyond doubt.

Listen and go to your happy zone.

Dan Croll

Dan Croll is a british singer-songwriter who released his debut album on march of 2014. His music merges folk and electronica in a fresh way that makes it friendly to your shoes in order to dance to. He´s the perfect combination of two distant (we thought) genres, he is the border line. His music has an organic feel despite the electronic elements because of the outstanding accuracy he has. He fusions instruments and synth elements in the exact moment that the song naturally needs it.

My favorite one: Maway

Dillon

Dillon is a young exotic talented woman. She is Brazilian but grew up to be a pianist and singer in Germany and her music is just as exotic and surprising as her culture combination. She has released two albums, the first one in 2011 (This Silence Kills)  and the second one in march 2014 (The Unknown) , both amazing.

Her voice has a very particular sound that im addicted to. Despite the complex lyrics and fusion of classical piano with electronic and house, her music results soothing to me but mainly just interesting. I could listen to her songs a thousand times and still not fully figure them out, there are many phases to each of them, jumping from melancholy to majestic hopeful sounds.

Hopefully you will enjoy and find her as interesting as i do.

 

Marian Hill

Marian Hill is a duo from Philadelphia. They create sensual, “dance to” electronic music. Their material is an addictive and spectacular fusion of electro and R&B. Although they don´t have a studio album im sure they will be in every dance club around the world in no time.

Their music simply makes me stand up and feel SEXY and ready to rage.
