I am head over heels in love with the live voice of Jessica Ellen Cornish, or Jessie J. if you will.
Her acoustic interpretation of the gorgeously upbeat song “Domino” is more than enough to start my week right. Actually, the recorded version is already a winner in itself. But hearing the undiluted lilts coming out of her mouth is a truly ear-candifying treat.
Watch the video above and you’ll see (and hear) what I mean. 😉
Matt Hires' cd "Take Us to the Start"
Thank God it’s Friday! Here’s a big shout out to music-loving fans!
Matt Hires is a young upcoming singer to watch. This 22 year-old native of Florida is set to invade with his new cd titled “Take Us to the Start.” He has this cool acoustic sound that can really set you off to a laid-back vibe any hour of the day, but preferably during less stressful moments so that you can take the time to enjoy his songs.
If you love Jason Mraz with a slice of John Mayer on the side, then chances are you will enjoy listening to Matt Hires. By the way, I just want to add that he sings barefoot onstage most of the time. I don’t know if this is going to be a trademark, but I can take him anytime – with or without footwear, that is.
You can download the 11-track cd from iTunes or Amazon.
Here’s a sample of his music (video courtesy of lambkinsrn.) He is shown singing “Honey, Let Me Sing You A Song” live from one of his gigs.
