Warm Rays & Sunny Days

Suns out Blossoms out & scattered across the globe some of us are already experiencing early may showers.  Fun fact ~ I’m not a huge fan of Summer so the subtle warm weather and sunny rays that Spring brings is very much appreciated on my part. Spring means the start of new beginnings which is a great time to look over those new years resolution, goals and intentions you set (Yes guys there’s still time!) Spring clean ~ right now I’m very into the minimalism thing although I did just purchase a Sakura piece of wall art to bring a little of spring into the home. Spring is also the perfect time for new projects, planning and opportunities. So take a breather, enjoy the earlier sunrises and later sunsets and of course leave time to have a little song and dance on the way to summer.

Enjoy the rest of spring with this specially selected playlist created by yours truly ~ Its a mix of light and breezy songs for your darling earbuds this Spring.

Introducing Ewood | Interview

p1120283ew_232
I’M OFFICIALLY MISSING YOU – Officially missing you

Ewood is a London Based singer-songwriter drawing inspiration from iconic artists such as Michael Jackson and Bruno Mars, his music can be described as both organic and authentic and has cultivated a loyal fanbase over the years. I discovered Ewoods music a few months ago when I saw him take the stage at The Bedroom Bar in London. Absolutely loved his Human Nature Cover! His passion for music and dancing is evident in his live performances and his songs tell stories of real life issues which most people can relate to. (Watch the “London Through The Eyes Of Ewood”  Documentary for more). He’s humble and hardworking and I personally feel like those two attributes in an artist are what makes them great. Within the last few months Ewood has taken his music on tour and travelled around Europe and the U.K at sold out Venues. I had the absolute pleasure of interviewing Ewood, Check out the full interview below.

HH: Tell us a little bit about your back story and how you got started in music?

EW: I remember being very young and watching Michael Jackson on TV, it was during the Bad Tour and I was like “Mum this is what I want to do”. I started music at the age of 8 years old, then studied music, drama and how to put a show together from the lights to the sound at the conservatory. I studied different styles of dance at a dancing school in Paris and London and I never stopped since. I’ve been on The Voice in France and I was the opening act of a very Popular French singer Axel Tony. I just finished my first tour “ The Truth Or Dare Experience” where I presented songs of my future album “Truth Or Dare”. 

HH: Who are your music inspirations? Do you have a favourite artist of all time?

EW: Bruno Mars, Miguel, Sade, Seal, Jazmine Sullivan, Musiq Soulchild, Janet Jackson, Sammy Davis Jr, James Brown, Marvin Gaye, Adele, Stevie Wonder, Bon Jovi, Aeromsmith, Craig David, Jamiroquai, George Michael, Michael Bublé, Tamia, Mary J Blige, Brandy, Maroon 5, R.E.M, No doubt, P!nk, Phil Collins, Mariah Carey, Usher and Rihanna, etc. My favourite artist of all time is Michael Jackson.

An Interview With Marga Lane | Artist Spotlight

 “SAFE TO SAY I’M ALL YOURS” – Thinking about you

Thinking about you’ is the breathtakingly stunning single from LA based Soulful-Pop Singer Songwriter and Multi-instrumentalist Marga Lane. Lane has performed at some incredibly notable venues across the US and recently caught the attention of Lance Bass who featured her on his Dirty Pop show on SiriusXM. Being a fellow N’sync fangirl I squealed with excitement when I heard. (🙌🏽 Paws up if N’ Sync was your life back in the day!) It’s definitely one to see and you can watch it by clicking the link here.

A rhythmic beauty; ‘Thinking about you’ is the opening track to Marga Lane’s forthcoming album ‘Undressed’. I don’t use this word lightly but believe me when I say that this upbeat yet seamlessly chilled acoustic song is pure ‘Perfection’. It’s the perfect blend of layered harmonies, a catchy melody, ad libs and silk like vocals. It’s the kind of song that will put a pep in your step and one you’ll want to have looped on repeat all day long. Easy listening Gold for sure. ‘Forgiven’ is the follow-up single to Thinking about you and Marga’s ability to tug at your heart-strings in the most sincere and mesmerising way doesn’t falter. Her artistry is second to none. With a distinctive voice and always authentic at the heart, her light radiates through her heartfelt, honest and relatable lyrics. Singing songs about love and loss in a very raw and real way makes Lane’s music easy to identify with, with each song acting as a reassuring reminder that there is someone out there that knows what you’re going through or has been there before. I had the absolute pleasure of interviewing Marga Lane. I double dare you not to fall in love with her and her music by the end of this article. Marga Lane is truly an amazing artist.

HH: Tell us a little bit about yourself – What’s your background and how did you get started in music?

ML: I started playing piano at 6 and from there I fell in love with music and performing. A few years after piano, I started taking voice lessons and going to musical theater summer camps. Honestly, I have my parents to thank for putting me in all of these activities. My mom played the piano so I think it was only natural for her to get me started at such a young age. I also played the flute in band for 8 years and picked up playing guitar and drums in high school. It’s strange because I don’t really remember being drawn to anything else as a kid. I used to figure skate, but other than that music and dance were 24/7 for me. Continue reading “An Interview With Marga Lane | Artist Spotlight”
