Today our post is about a woman who looks like a young girl – I swear I thought she was younger than me! – and has the voice of a young girl but with a lot of soul and feelings.
Corinne Bailey Rae was part of a group called Hellen but the band didn’t go further which didn’t stop her; after a few years of being married, she started working on solo material and in 2004 she got a breakthrough. Continue reading →
Today we close the J’s series – my favorite singers with the name starting with J – and I am afraid there are no girls making the top 5 on my list. But they will show up here eventually, just not on this series.
Well, the guy from today is another British (what a surprise!!) and yes, he is definitely the youngest to make the list. He signed his first contract after a fan uploaded a video to YouTube of him performing at an open mic in London and a week later he signed up with Republic Records A&R, releasing his first EP, Continue reading →
Today I’m gonna bring to you the fourth singer on the J’s series and I know, it is again a guy, sorry girls.
James Andrew Arthur, our fourth J is the third British, the youngest so far and he is the winner of the ninth season of the X-Factor (2012) – which made him the first contestant who’s been both: bottom two and winner.
His cover for the song Impossible of Shontelle became the fatest-selling The X-Factor winner’s single so far and it holds the best-selling winners single ever, overtaking Continue reading →
Today is a beautiful day, or at least I hope it will be and I am ready to present to you the third of my favorite and the second James on my list; he started his career singing after leaving the British Army and, although it wasn’t a great start, he didn’t give up and after releasing 3 singles for his first album, he hit the target and became known worldwide.
James Hillier Blount recorded his first album Back To Bedlam (2003) in Los Angeles and with the two first singles – HighandWisemen – he didn’t get much attention from the media or public but after releasing You’re Beautiful, Continue reading →
First of all, I’d like to apologize for last week’s lack of post… I’ll try to avoid that as much as possible but it will happen every now and then and I won’t have an excuse to give, most of the times.
Well, here things are alright and while I was thinking about whom to write about next, it came to my mind that I love writers and singers that have the letter J as initial and I decided to share with you guys all my favorite singers with J – at least most of them. Just so you know, the favorite writer is
I’m alright and ready to bring another singer for you guys and this time is a guy who, at least for me, makes me feel at easy just by his name – probably because if I hear his name I immediately think about his music and his music makes me feel relaxed and in good mood.
Born in 1977, Jason Thomas Mraz is an American singer-songwriter and he started his career playing at the coffee house Java Joe’s in the neighborhood of San Diego where he performed once a week for nearly three years. Java Joe was also the place where he recorded his live acoustic album Live at Java Joe’s – the album contain songs like 1000 Things, You and I Both and Halfway Home, performing with percussionist Rivera and Continue reading →
Well, I said I was going to talk about her – the queen, the greatest voice and singer I’ve ever heard! – in a future post and I guess this is the future I was talking about.
I admit: I didn’t know her until few months ago but one sunny Saturday morning, my BF was listening to James Bond’s songs and he asked me if I knew who she was and I said no, so he played This Is My Life and the moment I heard her voice I thought that I missed everything about music until that moment. Since then I can say, for sure: “There’s perfect Continue reading →
