So exams are over. Yey!!!
I’m going to talk to you today about a new artist called… Nathan Sykes!! Some of you may know him as a former member of The Wanted. He has decided to go solo and his new single Kiss Me Quick http://youtu.be/0tj4ye_3fAQ is released on the 28th June… Check it out!!
He is changing his sound from The Wanted which was very much pop/chart music to a mix of blues, soul and Motown. As you can tell from his new single! He also released this song as a teaser http://youtu.be/ehQrVqPVDEg it’s called More Than You’ll Ever Know and it is awesome. I love the sound he’s making. It’s so different and quirky and there is definitely a space in the market for him.
He’s already done gigs around the country and his album is due to release later on this year. I hope all you guys check it out! He deserves everything and more so pre order his single and spread the word!!
Follow him on Twitter @nathansykes and like his Facebook ‘Nathan Sykes’
Keep the love. Peace!
So I want to talk to you guys today about the summertime ball. This is kind of a rant… SORRY GUYS
So I have tickets to the summertime ball in a couple of weeks and I really don’t know what to think about it. The line up is… One Direction, Avicii, Kelly Clarkson, Flo Rida, Jess Glyne, Jason Derulo, Olly Murs, Carly Rae Jepsen, Ariana Grande, Pitbull, Meghan Trainor, Martin Garrix, Ne-Yo, Rita Ora, Little Mix, LunchMoney Lewis, Nick Jonas, Rixton, Fifth Harmony, Nathan Sykes and OMI. Wow thats a long list. Now if you’re pop educated you’ll know that there are about 4 rappers in the line up… moan 1. WHY!? I can’t sing along to a rapper and it is very hard to dance to a rapper. The whole point of the summertime ball was to be able to know all the songs and artists. Which this year has not happened! Not keen on rappers…
Moan 2. over 5 of the acts only have one well known song… WHAT IS UP WITH THAT!? The show is supposed to be from 3-10 is One Direction going to be on for 3 hours or something? (not that I’d mind I do love One Direction)
Moan 3. Three major performers this year are American and haven’t broken the UK yet… no one knows any of their songs!? how are we supposed to enjoy ourselves if we’re just standing there like lemons!?
I’m going to stop moaning now. Don’t get me wrong there are four acts I can’t wait to see. One Direction, Rixton, Olly Murs and Nathan Sykes. But 4 out of 20!? I think something is definitely wrong here… Capital? SORT YOUR SHIT OUT FOR NEXT YEAR!!!!!
Love always x
NEW BAND ALERT
So I’ve recently found an awesome new band called ‘The Afterparty’. They’re a UK rock band and they are awesome! They already have an album out called Distances which you can download NOW on iTunes… to get a flavour of what they’re like I chose my favourite song from their album it’s called ‘Open Road’ and here it is ——>
I know I can’t resist a bit of Rock and I bet all of you can’t as well. I think this song and the whole album can really hit up anyone and everyone! It has awesome melodies and such a good beat. Headbanging at the ready!!! Now, if you love the album then you’ll be over the moon to know that they’re doing 7 day UK tour in Bristol, Gainsborough, London, Southampton, Nottingham, Birmingham and Glasgow so GO GET SOME TICKETS and rock out to this sick new band The Afterparty!!

If you’ve never heard of Lawson… then where have you been living!? They are the most genuine band out there right now! I can not resist dancing along to their songs like ‘Learn To Love Again’, ‘When She Was Mine’ and their amazing new single ‘Roads’! LISTEN TO IT NOW!!!
This single is out this SUNDAY!!! So go and pre-order it in iTunes now!!! Call a radio station ask for it to be played!! Anything! Spread the word guys Lawson have hit back hard!
Some of you may know nothing about Lawson… let me give you a brief history…
Lawson are formed of lead singer and rhythm guitarist Andy Brown, Lead guitar and backing vocals Joel Peat, Bass and backing vocals Ryan Fletcher and Drums Adam Pitts. They’ve supported massive acts such as The Wanted and Jessie J and this year are set to play V festival in August! These guys are big and they’re just going to get bigger. I might be slightly one-sided as I love them all and have seen them in concert many times and even met them but honestly give these guys a listen and you will not regret it! It has been three years today since they released their first single AND if you love them as much as I do you’ll be going to see them at one of their signings AND they’re releasing a 7 DAY UK TOUR!!! To get all the details follow @LawsonOfficial on Twitter!!
If you’re thinking that its just pop then think again! Their music offers a wide range of genres from rock to indie to pop to ballads! This band deserves everything and more so like and comment below and make sure your road leads to LAWSON!!
So I was looking down my facebook timeline and there was all the usual crap… ’10 things men find unattractive in women’ or ‘This has to be the coolest watch I’ve ever seen!’ *insert a watch that doesn’t look like a watch* anyway I came across something lit up my face like the Blackpool lights. I’m sure you’ve all seen or at least heard of the new film Pitch Perfect 2 which heavily feature Jessie J’s song ‘Flashlight’. Well if you thought that was good then you haven’t seen anything… check this out!
Not only is it amazing that she’s singing it with a fan, but how good is he!?!?!?!? The amount of riffs he can do with his voice is perfection! He deserves so much credit. I’ve never heard someone sing that song so well! We’re already jealous that he got to sing it with Jessie herself but he nearly upstaged her! It’s times like this where I think… being a classical musician really isn’t going to get me anywhere.
I hope you guys loved it as much as I did! Please comment and like below!!
This is really weird. The idea of doing a blog literally popped into my head this morning. I can imagine its just going to be me talking to myself *sad loner*. I don’t really have any idea what I’m doing. But I guess that’s the fun of it yeah? I guess I should talk a bit about myself. I’m 18 and just about to take my A levels. As you can guess I am a musician! Holla to all musicians out there! I am going to uni to study Music which I can’t wait for. I think every A Level student is thinking the same thing. They just want to get out of school into the big wide world! Not long now though. I guess another reason I wanted to do this was because I’ve been going through a bit of a hard time recently. Something I won’t go into quite yet and I felt I needed a new hobby! I’m not one of those girls that knows lots about make up so you’ll be thankful to know I won’t be doing any of that kind of stuff very often. My life isn’t interesting at all really! But these next few months are going to be very busy and I want to share everything!!
That being possibly the worst introduction ever… If you’ve read this then number 1; Thank you!! Number 2; Well done if you didn’t fall asleep! Feel free to comment below I could do with some help! Or if you want me to talk about anything in particular I almost want to share this with everyone!
Until next time!
