shout out!

Last night I went to see Jonathan Emile perform.

He’s an up and coming montreal hiphop/soul/funk/r&b singer.

He did this amazing freestyle, that consisted of passing around a pen and paper to the audience and having them all write random words for him to freestyle to. So, obviously I jumped at the opportunity and put all the random words that came to my mind. The ones I wrote down were………..

–> cauliflower

–>spice rack

–>tampon

–> meet you at the show . com (1:18 mark!)

some of the other words included un..??  and fiona.

E is writing a review of the show, while I was his sidekick photographer.
We had such a blast. Jon E and Drew da white boy were both super awesome.

Cant wait for the next show!!

I also interviewed Jesse the lead singer from The Dutchess and The Duke.
He was a real champ. Every technical difficulty that you could think of that could go wrong, did. 
I’m excited to see their concert in january. one of the many things I’m looking forward to in the new year. 

Check out the interview, reviews, and more at MeetYouAtTheShow.Com!!!

Neshama.

If I could ever sound like anyone when I sing, it would be Neshama Carlebach.

The voice, the intensity, the spirituality, the beauty.

Love.

Jump to 1:21 to get to the singing in this video:

Neshama’s father was the famous Shlomo Carlebach, renowned for his contribution to Judaic folk music and spirituality. Clearly, she has carried on his legacy.

I get goosebumps every time I hear her sing.

I hope you enjoy!

the song i’m feeling…

“Factories” by Winter Gloves

*

Unfortunately the real version of the song is no where to be found on youtube..
*

However, I have stumbled upon a fantabulous acoustic version done right here in my hometown, Montreal, during the Oshaega music festival this year.
*

Ch-ch-check ’em out! (Make sure to check out the actual song too.. it’s totally a different sound and it’s totally awesome!)

“AH OH
AH OH

You believe
the life you lead
would keep me from
being angry
free for all
for today
is quite the dream
quite the dream

you believe in some kind of harmony
keep you still away from factories
you believe in some kind of harmony

ooohhhhhhhh
ooooohhhhhh
ooohhhhhhhh

AH OH
AH OH

i understand
in you live in
i give you hope
i give you love oh

all you do
for taking it in
for taking it in
for taking it in

you believe in some kind of harmony
keep you still away from fact-

ooohhhhhhhh
ooooohhhhhh
ooohhhhhhhh”

Crazy Cover

Not only do I love Kings of Leon, but I love Paramore.. so mix them together and we get this wonderfulness.

Enjoy!

“Use Somebody”- Acoustic cover by Paramore (song originally by Kings of Leon)

I’ve been roaming around, I was looking down at all I see
Painted faces fill the places I can’t reach
You know that I could use somebody
You know that I could use somebody

Someone like you and all you know and how you speak
Countless lovers under cover of the street
You know that I could use somebody
You know that I could use somebody
Someone like you

Off in the night while you live it up I’m off to sleep
Waging wars to shake the poet and the beat
I hope it’s gonna make you notice
I hope it’s gonna make you notice

Someone like me, someone like me
Someone like me, somebody

I’m ready now, I’m ready now
I’m ready now, I’m ready now
I’m ready now, I’m ready now
I’m ready now

Someone like you, somebody
Someone like you, somebody
Someone like you, somebody

I’ve been roaming around, I was looking down at all I see
