This week I’m featuring Corinne Bailey Rae. Enjoy♥
Hey Everyone, Since it was a holiday yesterday I thought I’d wait and do Music Monday today!
This week I am featuring the band Buckcherry. The group is an American rock band from California who formed in 1995. I was first introduced to this band during high-school and then again a couple of years ago. They’re still going strong on my i pod and every-time I come across one of their songs, I am filled with many different memories. I hope you guys enjoy it as much as I have.
If you saw the 1996 comedy film Kingpin, then you should remember this group as they were featured playing “But Anyway” during the closing credits. Blues Traveler is a rock band that formed in New Jersey in 1987. The band has different genres including blues, folk and southern rock. Like many other artists, I was introduced to the band by my dad and between them and Alanis Morissette you could say an obsession with the harmonica grew.
Bringing it back to the late 80s early 90s, I’d like to introduce you to En Vogue. I was first introduced to this female R&B group by my dad when I was too young to understand the group when they were singing “Free your Mind.” I liked to think that they were singing ” Freegle Myer” along with me 🙂
I think of En Vogue as feel-good music that is excellent to sing along with. I’ll pop in one of their CD’s during a good spring cleaning or whenever I am puttering around the house. The group has the sound of Salt N Peppa funk mixed in with a little bit of soul. By far, they are one of my favorites.
So Last week I started my Music Mondays where I’ll be featuring a different music artist every week. It’s week two, enjoy!
About a month ago I had the pleasure of getting an extra ticket to tag alongside a friend to go see Toro y Moi, Braids and Teen Daze. Unfortunately I left The Biltmore with only the memory of Braids performing(Thank God for You Tube so I could relive the concert the next day). After listening to the different artists, I could see why I left with just the sound of Braids in my head. Listening to her matchless voice makes you want to sway to the music, let your hair down and forget your surroundings; looking back, that’s just what I did. Don’t get me wrong, the other artists were just as satisfactory; however, there was something about the vocals of Braids that got to me.
Braids is an indie,electronic band from Calgary, Alberta who are currently based in Montreal, Quebec. The group formed in 2006 and consists of members Raphaelle Standell-Preston, Katie Lee, Austin Tufts and Taylor Smith. There music takes its time and carries you along seductively for the duration before fading softly. The group is known for their percussive sound, inventive tunes and Raphaelle’s vocals.
