fyfe at The Social, London, July 21st

Zrzut ekranu 2014-07-23 o 19.12.29I’ve been waiting days for my first fyfe gig. I have to admit that it was also my first proper, small, but truly amazing gig in London. Days had passed and I finally had a chance to experience The Social’s unique atmosphere, hospitality, and delicious beer.

As a person who really, really hates being late, I arrived a little bit too early, but having a friend with me was another plus which rescued the waiting-situations of the evening. Besides, being on time gave us the chance to see two lovely ladies’ performances.

The first one was Eva Stone from Newcastle, charming and girly, with a soft but strong voice, outstanding image, and brilliant set of lovely songs. She’s playing on August 3rd in Islington, London, check it out here and listen to one of her tunes:

Then Liza Anne, maybe a little bit shy but amazingly talented girl, was performing. Her folky numbers were definitely breathtaking, and I am definitely, definitely, DEFINITELY looking forward to track her music and career in the future.

Finally, fyfe came on stage. I was really shocked that, in fact, the man who I saw was not introverted or mysterious (that exactly how I had seen fyfe before getting to know him and his music face-to-face). He actually happens to be quite a little charmer, with his guitar and that deeply fascinating voice. And with the brilliant sound at The Social, the experience was even more intense.

July 21st was not only the day of that remarkable gig, but also the day when his new single ”For You” was released – which you can hear below, and of course purchase via iTunes. More nights like that, pretty please!

New Music: Halcyon Drive – “Apart”

Zrzut ekranu 2014-07-20 o 00.41.04“Apart”, new single from Melbourne’s Halcyon Driveis a phenomenal piece, and it definitely makes me wanna grab their upcoming EP – which is scheduled to be released later this year – as soon as possible, and listen to it over and over again.

Someone needs to play this song during my funeral. I should put this in my will right now.

Morrissey – ‘World Peace Is None Of Your Business’ (2014)

Zrzut ekranu 2014-07-19 o 22.28.32A legend, magician, and the most important lyricist of my life so far – Morrissey – released his newest studio album last week. World Peace Is None Of Your Business was not a surprise, but it doesn’t need to be, because we all know that everything that Morrissey has ever created was, is, and will be sacred, impossibly perfect, beautiful, breathtaking.

My favourite songs need to be “I’m Not a Man” and of course the lovely titled track, but this is just my sentimental, subjective choice… Do you have your faves on there? Oh, you surely do. #Morrissey4Life

New Music: Sean O’Neill – “Vienna”

Zrzut ekranu 2014-07-17 o 22.47.26Vienna is a stunning first single from Sean O’Neill‘s soon to be released debut album. It seems to radiate happiness and sadness at the same time, giving the listener such a unique experience.

In addition to that miracle, a video for the song with the footage by Jonathan Sterkenburg can be seen on YouTube. Seen and never forgotten.

New Music: Pepa Knight – “Clams”

Zrzut ekranu 2014-07-17 o 14.08.17What a song! What a vibe! Pepa Knight‘s sophmore solo single “Clams” delights and surprises, giving me a perfect soundtrack for this sunny day that is definitely too hot for me.

But if you’re brave enough, if you’d like to experience Pepa’s hotness, and you happen to be in Australia at the beginning of August, make sure to go and see him playing live!

My New Obsession: LUKE JAMES

10468648_651434808258674_8867116146830246995_nIt all started couple of days ago, when I was going through music news on ThisIsRnB. While browsing the newest, hottest R&B releases, I came across a diamond, a pearl in my own Black Sea, and this pearl’s name was Luke James. His single “Options”, which comes from his debut album scheduled to be released September 23rd, got into my head so hard that it’s been days and nights that I am constantly hearing it in my head, in my dreams, and in my thoughts.

What a beautiful man he is! When it comes to falling in love with talented musicians’ work, I am one of the most experienced people in the world. David Bowie, Prince, Anthony Hamilton, Lenny Kravitz, John Legend… I could be mentioning names for hours and the list wouldn’t stop. But I am like a crazy lady who loves her cats – I love my men of music.

Pre-order Luke’s brilliant self-titled record here (a must have for me!).
