Music Friday: May Surprise
Jumping straight in with Aloe Blacc a true all-rounder being even an actor next to the singing, song writing, producing and being a businessman. He has been around for some time and is showing some great songs right now, hitting the hit parades. Having a calm and soothing voice he relaxes you to listen carefully to his words. He is known for his song ‘I need a dollar” and a UK no1 hit “The man”. In this list I got the song “love is the answer”. So give him a try I am pretty sure he will lift your spirit.
My second choice is a lady with dancing shoes on and taking the stage with her music. Since my love for music is so widely spread I could not forget about a little dance. Charli XCX is rising fast with her mix of different genres. It is fun to listen to and gives a kick as it is something hardly done.Maybe she is a little provocative, but then again what else is new these days. Videos make or break you but always get you in the spotlight. This one sure got my attention for the lyrics. But I let you be the judge of that.
Third in line is American singer and songwriter. He goes under the name Cris Cab. At first hearing him sing he reminded me of Sting and I think that is a compliment. To me it gives a nostalgic feeling of the old days. Where pop was a fun. He is totally bringing it back with a mix of electric sounds and reggae like music at least in this up-tempo. It is fresh and has you move instantly. Okay maybe it is just e who can’t sit still with nice music. “Liar liar” is best known but I think the one I lined up for you is just as great if not greater. He is on the rise so give him a try.
Coming closer to the end of this month music surprise I am taking you along with Rondé a Dutch band with the new sound of today. With that Indie feel they still try to add another flavour for you to find and discover. Layered they create in my opinion a slight better sound. It is fuller and has more power as it comes out of your speakers. Ups and downs like a mountain road I think it has it all to grow and be liked by many as they focus on live performance with their songs. I am having their song “run” lined up for you. A song I think should be in any playlist even if it is just to change pace for a minute.
The site is in Dutch, just so one knows it needs translating.
Las is a little man with a great voice and style. Playing Guitar or piano effortlessly he might just be the inspiration for all. VanVelzen, as he is called on stage is Dutch singer and songwriter. His music always got power and makes sure it has an impact deep inside of you. I urge you to give him a listen and be amazed by what he put out there. With his 5 feet he is still taller than any of us. His lyrics always seem to hit me. Always fun and always smiling he has become one of the few Dutch artist I love. He gets two slots in the just to have people get inspired and show you how much fun he is having.
