For the last couple of weeks I have binged watched the tv series “Nashville”on Netflix. I am not usually a huge country music fan, and some of the tunes on the show aren’t my cup of tea, but I went in with an open mind, and surprisingly heard quite a few that I liked. Albeit they were tunes leaning more in the direction of the Lumineers(and one actual Lumineers song covered brilliantly), than anything. I loathe country pop, for instance…getting that out there right now. Just…why? Why do that to it? I will never understand. Rock and country go together, but pop, rap or hip hop with country? Just no.
Anyway…this post is about two wonderful artists, of whom I discovered whilst watching this show. Who I otherwise may not have ever stumbled upon….but maybe I would have, since I often go looking. 😛
Lennon and Maisy Stella are Canadian born girls, now 16 and 12….whose parents are also musicians…The Stellas. They are amazingly talented… so I’m sharing. 🙂
Bluesy. Original. Unique. And she has an AWESOME voice!! Love it. 🙂
Hannah Williams & The Tastemakers….
At night, when everyone else is sleeping, I like to cruise UToobe, Grooveshark, or last.fm, for new music. The house is quiet, no chores need to be done, and I can concentrate on finding fresh tuneage!
I felt like posting my best find of the night…
An indie folk band from Australia…. The Paper Kites
so nice… 🙂
Love Jack White…..groovin’ me tonight. 🙂
I was randomly searching my sat radio stations today on a car trip, and the song, Gone, Gone, Gone popped up twice. I likey!
When I got home I googled the singer…Phillip Phillips, and found out he won American Idol in 2012. I used to watch that show every year, but then got bored with it. I would have liked to see this guy perform. Nice and folksy. Reminds me a bit of Mumford and Sons and other similar artists. My fave new groove for the last couple of years. Definitely added him to my iTunes when I got home! 🙂
Love this!! So retro, but so fresh all at once! 🙂
Funny…I first heard his music in a car commercial. Sometimes watching TV pays off, I guess! 😛
