I love British singers!
I love music – all kinds of music. And I still buy a lot of it. And I love to see live music. And lately, it’s all about the British (female) singers.
This Friday night, we’re going to see Florence and the Machine. I loved her disc ‘Lungs,’ so I’m really looking forward to seeing her live. She’s just the right mix of edgy, weird and ballsy that I like. Should be a terrific show.
On Friday, July 12th, I’ll once again get to see the incomparable Sade. I have every CD she’s released, have seen her in concert 2 or 3 times before, and look forward to another spectacular show. I think many people will agree – a Sade concert is practically a religious experience. She is one of the most classy, talented artists I can think of. While I love all of her music, her CD ‘Love Deluxe’ is a soundtrack album in my life. Songs like No Ordinary Love, Kiss of Life, Pearls, and (my all time favorite) Cherish the Day show a woman/artist of true depth.
Of all the music I’ve bought in the last year, none of it has resonated with me like Adele’s ‘21.’ I was a fan from the first time I saw the “Chasing Pavements” video from her ‘19′ album. So I bought ‘19′ and while there were songs I liked, I thought the disc was a bit uneven. ‘21′ is a flat out classic – every song is terrific and her voice is a true gift. Adele is a true artist and I love everything about her. I love the fact that she’s low profile, that she’s not another “Amy Winehouse,” that she’s not rail thin. She’s just a normal girl who happens to be exceptionally talented. We were supposed to see her live a few weeks ago, but she had to postpone the last part of her tour due to laryngitis. She’s rescheduled Atlanta for October 7th and I can’t WAIT!
So who are you really into right now? And who are you going to see live in the next few months?
