Matt Corby is an Australian singer songwriter who´s scratchy and powerful voice has conquered my ears.
This talented musician has a side project (not sure if i should call it that) called “Secret Gardens” . This project began with Matt asking his fans where they would want to see him play (outside regular venues). Most fans answered they´d want sessions in theur own garden an backyards and Matt began touring Australia playing intimate sessions in this odd places. The success has been such that The Secret Garden Shows have spread across the world to gardens around the UK and USA.
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 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 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.
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.
