Music Jar – week 21

This week, I have been listening to Yebba – an artist I hadn’t heard of and was unlikely to if it wasn’t for Becca’s recommendation. She’s a lot better at identifying these new trends in music and knowing about what is cool.  Yebba is a singer/songwriter from West Memphi who has worked with Sam Smith, Stormzy…… Continue reading Music Jar – week 21

Music Jar – week 20

This week has been my triumphant joy to listen to nothing but Paramore. Now listen, due to me being so indie that it hurt at the time, I wasn’t allowed to listen to Paramore at the time although I do remember “Barry the Castle” (Brick By Boring Brick) as a colleague called it being played…… Continue reading Music Jar – week 20

This week, I have been enjoying the music of Brandi Carlile. Carlile, from Washington, Seattle is a legend in the field of Grey’s Anatomy as well as being a gay icon. Whatever you do, don’t get her mixed up with Belinda Carlisle, who performed Heaven Is A Place On Earth and is probably also a…… Continue reading Music Jar – week 19

This week, I have been lost in my very own indie movie with the help of the bird and the bee – stylised in lowercase for hipster cool emphasis. I would like to take this opportunity to thank my boyfriend, Scott Rose, for making me aware of this group. The pair from Los Angeles are…… Continue reading Music Jar – week 18

This week, I corrected a twenty-five year error on my part by listening to Lauryn Hill. While I may have been exposed to The Fugees in the past, it’s not the same as the might of The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill. Lauryn Hill is credited not just as breaking down barriers for women in music…… Continue reading Music Jar – week 17

Music Jar – week 16

This week I have mostly been riding my skateboard and drinking orange and cranberry because it has been the turn of Stevie Nicks. We all know Stevie Nicks from Fleetwood Mac but she also wrote a league of stuff herself and in particular, her debut album, Bella Donna, deserves to be heralded as one of…… Continue reading Music Jar – week 16

This week, I got to listen to Billie Holiday, an artist that everyone knows but I couldn’t have told you much about. Billie was a jazz singer from Philadelphia who changed the landscape of music as well as what was considered possible as a black woman in the arts, performing in a time of segregation…… Continue reading Music Jar – week 15

This week, I’ve had the joy of listening to Jorja Smith, thanks to Dani Keepings. I wasn’t familiar with Jorja, who is a full decade younger than me and infinitely more talented. Her jazz-club-in-the-early-hours albums have been a beautiful accompaniment to this week. There’s a lot to be said for artists who are off of…… Continue reading Music Jar – week 14

Music Jar – week 13

Each week, I choose an artist at random from a pickle jar and listen to everything they’ve done, hoping to find new favourite artists. This week, it was Jaz’s recommendation – Martha Wainwright. Now, I was aware of MW because Jaz added possibly her most annoying song to our Road Trip playlist – a 24…… Continue reading Music Jar – week 13

Music Jar – week 12

If there is one thing I have been missing in my life, it’s knowing who the cool, new bands are. That’s why I felt really lucky that I got to spend the week listening to Wet Leg. Wet Leg are a British indie band formed by Rhian Teasdale and Hester Chambers and hailing from the…… Continue reading Music Jar – week 12
