Unexpected Win.

 

Always finding new and impressive ways to up and surprise me, Mayer Hawthorne comes through with his latest project, “Impressions: The Covers” EP. Filled with with wonderful covers of everyones old school favorites, like ‘(I got) Work To Do, ‘Fantasy Girl,’ and ‘You’ve got the Makings of a Lover,’ Mayer is basically establishing his talents and dominance in the awesome niche of Retro Soul, and music overall. And its free. So there’s really no losing involved in any of this right now. Unless you dont download it.

This boy is good, I’m a believer after this little joint. As If I wasnt before.

Anyways, you can download the EP in full by heading here. Break it open on Sunday morning, get your breakfast game on, sit down and listen to this, and enjoy.

Well. @IndiaBenet is starting to let her Music Light Shine. And I like what I hear/see. YouTube with me:

India Benet. Daughter of Eric Benet. It looks like she picked up the musical gene. Clearly. She first caught my attention when my girl Stephanie sent me a link of her doing an adorable and WELL done Cover/Medley of Nikki Minaj’s “Your Love” with Maroon 5’s “She Will Be Loved” on guitar. Yeah. Your initial reaction is probably “WTF” and you THINK it wouldn’t work… until India demonstrates the ability to link songs together in any key or tempo. As a Music Nerd… that is impressive. And displays massive talent.

Freaked out by how fast kids grow up and how much talent this one happens to be oozing, I instantly went to her YouTube page and searched related links to find out more on this kid’s awesome. And surely enough… her and Daddy have been at it for a while.

Kinda adorable… and really well done.
She took a break for a minute, probably just being cute and living life. But just recently, shes posted another video of her doing another wonderful cover. This time shes on the piano, singing her little heart out to A Fine Frenzy’s “Almost Lover.”

Interesting to say the least.
Welp, from here, its all about hoping that she gets out there the right way, and has the right people behind her music, if shes serious. And she should be. The talent is definitely there. Check her out on her twitter page, and enjoy.

Finally. Footage of my girl @ElleB_Music rockin with Katy Perry. Link:

Lookin all sessy and professional.

 

I’m proud of her like I birthed her.

So My Buddy, the future famous Elle B is currently out there with Katy Perry rockin your lifes and starting the party at your concerts. Now while I haven’t been lucky enough to catch her in action (that will change once she gets back into the Los Angeles area), I have been crossing my fingers, hoping that my  legendary tradition of recording concerts and putting your footage up on youtube would manifest itself with some Elle B Content, and praise Jebus… it has.

I love it. And I’m honored to present My Girl in action. Check it out:

 

 

She’s pretty Boss, huh?
You can head over to Elle’s personal website for more info on her, her awesome music and travels with Ms. Kitty Purry.

Katy does her versions of everyone pop favorites, including her best friend’s song for her birthday.
I blame Elle B.
Kinda adorable. Check it out.
