This is simply RIDICULOUS!!! I can’t get over just HOW GOOD this is! Flawless vocal performance showing a massive range, great technique and a voice full of character. Good songwriting is so undervalued but it makes all the difference and this is fine example of a great song. Love those Keys too, just loving everything about this tune. I know very little about this guy but i can’t see that staying the same for very long surely destined for big things.
A bit of class for your Wednesday Morning. Szjerdene singing this classic Jazz Standard out in Amsterdam. Gorgeous performance and the band compliment her oh so nicely check out the solos at the end off the hook! Love that Szjerdene isn’t doing the normal acoustic guitar performance that we are seeing a lot of at the moment. This shows versatility and the quality she has. Can’t wait for this lady’s album.
Powerful piece here from rising wordsmith George The Poet. Very honest and very well delivered speaking truths that need to be told. This is the kind of thing kids in school should be watching with a warning of how things could turn out. Quality stuff here sure you’ll be seeing more from George here.
Soul Features drop there first session video and they picked one of our favourite ladies for it. Martyna Baker has so much quality and shine on this video. Awesome vocal and i love the way the song picks up towards the end and she takes it to another place. Wicked Tune! Big up Soul Features on the video
Having given much time to Whitney tributes over the last couple of weeks but this is something really special and beautiful. Shanay Holmes an up and coming UK vocalist shines on this cover and makes it her own in places which is no mean feat given the standards the original sets. Bringing the Sax in is a touch of genius. Yes i may be biased but i can’t be the only person getting a little bit tired of all the acoustic guitar and vocal performances going about. It doesn’t take much to throw something else in the mix and if its rehearsed and you get it right the benefits are massive as is shown in this recording. The Sax just sounds lush and works with vocal quite beautifully. Fantastic stuff again from the Reload Sessions.
Awkwardly stylish came to mind whilst spectating the BRIT Awards 2012, celebrating the British Music Industry tonight (21st February 2012). It was almost as if a certain amount of “prestige” was trying to be portrayed which wasn’t really there. James Corden who hosted the night was interrupted on two occasions whilst introducing acts; by artists in the audience walking across the screen. This did however create a little humour for the show and broke up the pretence of the show.
The main highlights of the night were UK’s blazing hot solo artists of the moment Adele and Ed Sheeran both scooping two awards each tonight. The astounding Adele has already won 6 Grammys within the last two weeks and now has two BRIT Awards for both British Female Solo Artist and British Album of the Year to add to her mantelpiece which she proudly accepted with the words: “Nothing makes me prouder than coming home with six Grammys and then coming to the Brits and winning album of the year. I’m so proud to be British and to be flying the flag.” She also went on to serenade the audience with a flawless performance of her number one single Rolling in The Deep. This is a proud moment for all of us as it is so refreshing to see UK talents shine in their rightful glory. Adele has soared to new heights and has had an amazing music career so far. We can only imagine what is coming next from the beautiful superstar. Adele we salute you, keep knocking those pillars down in this crazy music industry.
Watching Ed Sheeran perform at the BRIT Awards could not have been any more heart warming as he has performed with The Remedies on a number of occasions, including Ed taking part in a Remedy Live gig as well as featuring The Remedies on his Live at the Bedford CD/DVD. His epic performance of his hit single Lego House is definitely a moment that will go down in Remedy history. Ed most deservingly won British Male Solo Artist and British Breakthrough Act with an admirable modest acceptance speech; “I honestly didn’t think I would get this one. I want to thank my family, the fans, every single promoter that has ever booked me, every single radio DJ that has ever played me and my label.” Ed is nothing short of remarkable and we hope to see many more awards going his way. We are extremely proud and honoured to have had the pleasure of our live band The Remedies share a stage with the incredible man himself.
Other performances on the night included: Florence and the Machine, Olly Murs, Bruno Mars and Rihanna. Bruno Mars wowed the audience with his mesmerising vocals and smooth charm and delivered a top notch performance (as always).

I don’t know much about this lady but this is very nice. Covering Lana Del Ray’s “Video Games” she does a very good job of it. Lovely vocals and tone nothing amazing however but it is very good. Will be looking out for her own material. Big up Reload sessions on another great Video!
The good people at Upshot present their new series Upshot Poetry featuring some of the best poets around reciting pieces for the camera. This video features one of my favourite performers Deanna Rodger. She always brings passion and power to every performance and very rarely disappoints. Watch listen and enjoy.
