Mabes – “America”.

I first heard Mabes’ music about a month ago, but this tune only last week, and I really liked the way it sounds, so I’m sharing it with you. Mabes is a British artist from Essex, and I don’t know much about her, but I do like her music a lot.

Daisy Clark – “Complicated”.

Hey guys! 🙂

I’ve shared with you some covers since I’ve started this blog, not necessarily always of the songs I like in the original, and very often acoustic covers. So, here is another one, and also by a British artist.

Daisy Clark is from Newquay in Cornwall (how cool, I know so few Cornish musicians, but I wouldn’t expect her to speak Cornish haha) and she has become very popular because of her YouTube channel where she publishes her own acoustic covers of popular songs. In fact apparently she has hardly ever left Cornwall, and her videos are now streamed by thousands of people around the world, so it looks like a huge success. But I’ve become familiar with her only very recently.

The song by her that I want to show you was originally performed by Avril Lavigne and is her so called signature song, so it’s quite a famous piece. I am quite neutral about Avril’s version, but I think Daisy’s is nice.

Nina Nesbitt – “The Sun Will Come Up, The Seasons Will Change”.

Hey people! 🙂

I have another song by Nina Nesbitt for you today, and another British pop song after Jack Vallier’s, that I like. It’s topic is something very trivial and obvious, but sometimes, especially when life gets a bit hectic, or perhaps boring, we tend to forget about it, that things in our lives are constantly changing, and next year on the same day, we may be in a completely different place and state of mind. I’m just re-reading a fabulously written biography of Bronte family, by a Polish writer, she has translated Bronte sisters’ books as well, and there’s the same motif. Anne and Emily Bronte have that tradition on writing birthday notes on Emily’s birthday every three years, and they write on what has changed in their life since the last note, and muse on how life is changing and where they will be in next three years’ time. For some reason, I found the way they do it quite hilarious. Okay, so here’s the song.

 

Before Breakfast – “Buddleia”.

Hi people! 🙂

This band is completely new to me, I actually only know this one song by them and I heard it a few days ago for the first time, but I really like it! The band is based in Sheffield and consists of four women, who met each other at uni, Gina Walters – who is the leader and the vocalist – the celloist Lucy Revis, Annie Rushworth and Debra Finch. I think I am going to listen to more of their music, if it sounds as good as this I think I’ll really like them.

Nina Nesbitt – “Is It Really Me You’re Missing?”.

Nina Nesbitt is quite a well-known singer and songwriter from Scotland. I think it’s also cool and worth mentioning that she’s also part Swedish – her mum is from Sweden. – I really like her music, along with other similar British artists like Gabrielle Aplin or Lauren Aquilina or Birdy or the like. And I like this particular song for a good few reasons so I thought I’d share it.

 

Kate Rusby – “Little Jack Frost”.

Hi guys! 🙂

So it’s Advent, and Christmas is coming, so we can listen to our favourite Christmas music again! This is one of my personal absolute winter classics. And Jack Frost is one of my favourite characters in European folklore. He has arrived here for good as it seems, so I am welcoming his with this lovely little song, hoping you will like it too. Kate Rusby is also one of my most favourite English folk singers, she’s really amazing! I love her voice and her accent, most people who know her seem to love her accent haha, and she does this song so very well. It just makes my brain melt. 🙂
