After abandoning his dreams to become a ninja, Zach Fleury (luckily for us) decided to become a musician. He records with all of his friends and create masterpieces that im obsessed with. After exhaustedly searching the web for info about him i ran into this video, what i liked the most is how he directs singers. He describes a detailed scenario in order to create and provoque the sound and feel he is looking for.
“If writing songs is like having kids…recording songs is like raising them”. Zach Fleury.
Micah P. Hinson is one of the rare most talented human beings that everyone should know about. So this is an effort on my part for the world to know him.
Born in Memphis and raised in Texas, inevitably Micah grew up surrounded by music and became a top notch guitarist after his dad got him a guitar for a 5th grade show. Since then he has composed many songs and released his first studio album in 2004.
His music wonders along country to gospel and blues. Exquisite lyrics covered of profound nostalgia and glimmers of hope. Constantly surprises his old and new audience with his versatility. Be a witness:
Recomendation: “Me and You” and “Yard Blonde Girls”.
Canadian mellow voice. Corinna Rose has one self titled EP and one studio album: Northeast Southwest.
She has travelled the world with her music positioning Montreal independent music scene up high. Corinna Rose is an eccentric pop songwriter who´s songs go beyond the melody and travel through different dimensions with her lyrics.
Hope you enjoy her as much as i do:
Don´t miss her collaboration with The Rusty Horse Band in the song “Green Mountain State”. This song is part of the movie soundtrack Take This Waltz .Beautiful film starring Michelle Williams and Seth Rogens.
Lucia and Peter are a french duo that makes beautiful minimalistic music. Lucia writes and Peter compliments her poetry with the guitar. Heyden and Ciprien are also part of this melodic compositions.
LP has travelled the world with their unique jazzy indie sound. Even though i don´t understand a word…i love it.
Listen to their first album: L´Empreinte (The Footprint)
Banks is a singer songwriter born and raised in L.A. For the last year she had been touring with The Weeknd but she has finally released her debut album: Goddess and is currently planning her tour around North America.
I would describe her music as a slow fiery electro pop which she accompanies beautifully with her sweet and hypnotic voice.
Music for a night out AND ALSO music to stay in with: PERFECTION.
I watched Begin Again this weekend and i loved it. The movie revolves around music but its NOT a musical, its a story about people who eat, breathe and live music in good, bad and confusing moments.Kira Knightley, Mark Ruffalo, Adam Levine and James Corden are the main actors of the film. Begin Again is great but the soundtrack is absolutely REMARKABLE.
The songs in the film are mainly interpreted by Kira Knightley and Adam Levine. Who knew Kira Knightley could sing!? she is amazing, simple, sweet and fresh. I have no words to talk about Adam Levine, he is a vocal genius.
Whoever wrote the lyrics to the songs: I´m in love with you.
Listen to this breathtaking soundtrack and do not miss this wonderful, simple y optimistic film.
This english band released their debut album, Zaba, this 2014. Although they released an EP in 2012, their music career had been on standby since all members where finishing their college degree. Since then, they have been very busy touring europe and north america. Glass Animals also had a live music session with Spotify which is outstanding.
In my personal opinion…every song i hear from them takes me to a nature environment. I can feel wind, rain and sunshine. I´m obsessed with this band.
Nonono is a swedish trio formed in 2012 in UK. They released their first EP in 2013 with the single Pumping Blood which helped them make a BIG entrance into the european music scene. This year they released their first album: We are only what we feel. I don´t know about you, but they got me with the title of the album, their music is completely unexpected and full of different shades.
