Hello. After 27 years of being scared to sing in front of anyone, I am jumping into the deep end and showing a side of myself for the first time in my life. Read about my journey, but more importantly listen to my music because the music is more important than anything else.
Have you ever felt out of place? Have you ever felt out of space or just as another person walking the streets wearing a mask? Well probably you did it, and if is the case you did perhaps look for a way to fit in, to enjoy naturally the constant passage of time. We are all adaptable beings looking for goodness, in search of a method of living free of suffering and anxiety.
Sorry men, the music year 2018 belongs to the women. At least when you look at this year’s line-up of Eurosonic Noorderslag. Probably the first festival of the year, the trendsetting happening in Groningen, Netherlands, offers a stage for more than 100 emerging bands from all over Europe. And surprisingly many artists were women.
A Song A Day is an excellent source to find new music, we use it a lot. At the end of the year, they curated a special best-of, with albums that have something to say about the not so easy year we just finished.

Our Artist of the Week #23, Sisika, are a four piece from South London, featuring Georgia Duncan on guitar and voice, her sister Katie on keys and voice, David Coughlin on bass and Lucy Katz on drums. Combining close, earthy harmonies with warm guitar, melodic bass lines, minimal synth sounds and subtle drums they create intricate, freely arranged songs with a rootsy soul folk sound.
No. 4 in our Artist of the Week series is Phildaelphia born Nic Hanson, now located in Brooklyn. Looking at the outcome under his own name, you would think he’s not that productive. But he does a lot of collaborations, as well as in his hometown as in New York and Los Angeles.
Our very first Artist of the Week is Shenandoah and the Night. She offers a haunting, noir-ish sound counter-balanced by bursts of joy and infectious energy. Rootsy enough for folk enthusiasts without sacrificing its modernist edge, Shenandoah and the Night cast a wide net across the spectrums of taste and time, blending and blurring a diverse set of influences that range from the operatic anguish of Nina Simone and Kurt Weill, to the dusky psychedelic sturm und drang of the Doors and Janis Joplin.
