I recently found the perfect autumn playlist on spotify and I just need to share it with you. We’re almost done with autumn and heading straight for winter, but this playlist needs to be shared.
I’ve been introduced to Matt Corby in February 2011 when he played at a Songs from a Room gig I was lucky to attend. I will blog about that experience some time, I’m sure.
I loved his performance. It was so pure and raw and gorgeous. I’ve been following him on and off ever since and I’m really fond of his music.
Jack, who blogs over at the Edge of Noise, practically forced me to listen to one of their songs ages ago. At first I couldn’t quite get into it. I couldn’t tell you why but I think I just wasn’t in the right mood. A few weeks later though I clicked on the link again and I was hooked.
I really wanted to link you to “Don’t forget to pray” but apparently, youtube won’t let me see that video, ergo I can’t link you to it either. Chances are that if you don’t live in Austria, you’ll be able to find it without any troubles on youtube :)
(You can go see what Jack had to say about them here.)
I’ve talked about going to London in 2010 and seeing Joshua Radin before, when I introduced you to The Staves. The second support act was Lissie. She came on after the Staves and at that time I was so in love with the act before and so excited for the main act that I didn’t pay enough attention to her.
Lissie really does deserve attention though. Her voice is so powerful, so unique. Her songs are so catchy. I wish I’d have given her the attention she deserved back then and I’d go see her in heartbeat.
In April 2010 I went to London for a weekend. A friend and I had tickets to see Joshua Radin for one night. He is absolutely lovely and a pleasure to listen to. However, what really blew me away was the pure and utter talent of his support acts.
The Staves are three sisters who sing in pure harmony. They are so, so lovely. I never tire of listening to their songs. After the show I bought their album, which only had 3 tracks on it. I went home to google and youtube them and came up empty handed. I only found a few live videos, nothing more. Now they’re more well known – and if anyone deserves it, it’s them.
