My girl Angie put me onto this beautiful woman,
Jessie Ware. She’s English and has this soft, pop-meets-soul sound that also makes me think of Kate Bush. Listening and liking a lot this week.
For more, check some of her other songs
110%, Sweet Talk, Running.
…oh and the full retreat info coming Monday instead
happy weekend all! xo

My pop put me on this song, “Little Annie.” Pop says:
This has such a strong opening, and I love Lionel Hampton on the vibes. He was one of the greatest jazz guys ever. So spirited throughout. “There ain’t no kind of dance Little Annie can’t do.”

Last week was
Amy Winehouse‘s birthday and my dad passed along this video of a live performance of “Back to Black.”
Rest in peace, Miss Amy.

Just starting to get to know English singer,
Lianne La Havas. They say she’s folk/soul. Still exploring her work but very much appreciating her voice and originality so far.

I watched the Bill Withers documentary,
Still Bill, this week and really loved it. What an incredible person he is. It was so interesting to learn about the unconventional way that he’s approached the music business, and with such integrity. Highly recommended, engrossing and very touching.
