Nneka - Book Of Job

MusicTelevision.Com presents Nneka and songs from her album titled My Fairy Tales

For regular visitors to these pages, Nneka needs no introduction. She is one of the heaviest global artists of substance to keep an eye and your ear on. She and her music personifies the spirit where the humanitarian meets political messages of Bob Marley, Nina Simone, John Lennon, Fela Kuti and Michael Jackson when they were alive and in their primes.

Below is the music video to one of Nneka's songs titled Book of Job which will be off a full album titled My Fairy Tales, due out in March 2015. Visit Nneka's site referenced below for details on pre-order perks and worldwide concert dates. Enjoy! GC

Cobe Obeah - True Colors (featuring Nneka)

Music Television presents Nneka with Cobe Obeah

One artist who has been stumping for the common man in her native Nigeria and others around the world who feel marginalized by the various Police States around the globe that exist, is a wonderfully deep prolific recording artist named Nneka.

On her own, Nneka is a powerful voice, who occasionally collaborates and lends herself to others who have something important to say.

Nneka wrote this about one such song, featured below, which she participated in: "TRUE COLORS... the new Video by COBE OBEAH feat. NNEKA inspired by the american police, upcoming elections in Nigeria, hate, Boko haram, War, breakups, and love..."

While the industry is applauding D'Angelo for his recent release, Black Messiah, we hope that the industry also embraces other artists of deep substance like Nneka, who has been in the trenches, fighting the fight non-stop since she first hit the scene, slightly more than a decade ago. This woman embodies the activist spirit of those like Bob Marley, Nina Simone, Fela Kuti and John Lennon. She is the real deal. Her friend Cobe Obeah may just be another artist of substance to keep on our radar. GC

A Christmas song by Tim Minchin

MusicTelevision.Com presents Tim Minchin

This morning, Gaby Moreno shared a note with her friends that read: "Last night I saw Tim Minchin performing at Largo. He played this song. Can't tell you how much it moved me..such a beautiful Christmas song from an "non religion" perspective..."

Tim Minchin wrote the following about his song:  "A sentimental song about Christmas. This version is taken from the Australian 'Ready For This?' DVD. As in previous years, all proceeds from the sale of this song during the months of November, December and January will go to the National Autistic Society (NAS)."

Gaby Moreno and her Christmas Album

My brain fogs up with love and tears of joy fill my eyes when I listen to the music of Gaby Moreno. A meaningful description using words is way too elusive. Gaby's authentic essence and the unmanufactured beauty of her music does just fine, speaking for itself. GC

Below is the latest music video from Gaby Moreno to the song titled El Primer Noel off her most recent Christmas Album titled Posada. Billboard Magazine's Judy Cantor-Navas recently recently dubbed Posada "An Instant Latin Christmas Classic".

This is what Gaby wrote to describe her record: "Posada" is a collection of traditional Christmas songs, recalling the years when I was a young girl living in Guatemala and singing in my church choir. These are the songs we would sing during the month of December at church on Sundays, at Advent family gatherings and for the traditional Latin American celebration "Las Posadas" which begin on Dec. 16th - Gaby Moreno

PURPLE - The 99 Second Song

Music Television presents Purple
Presently playing several sold out shows in Europe, fresh out of Beaumont Texas is a hard rocking trio named Purple. The members are Joe "Prankster" Cannariato on bass, Taylor Busby on guitar & vocals and Hanna Brewer on drums and vocals.

This group happens to be one of our very favorite emerging rock bands whose three best videos we featured on September 20, 2014. (Click here to watch those videos.)

Purple isn't likely to be a band that is going to heal the world or anything, but the fact that they really know how to have fun is what is so admirable. Big fat kudos for that in this world where too many artists seem to dilute their sound and sell their soul before they have any fun or rock the way they want to.

An old real deal rock star once said, "You can't be a rock star without contempt... Without contempt, you'll be a pop star at best". And yes, there is a difference! For instance, acts who bend their sound to the whims or wants of others such as label heads, supposed producers or the self-proclaimed Moral Majority, have no contempt. Is there a real deal rock star worthy streak of contempt flowing through the veins of this group, especially Hanna Brewer, that is pushing them to stretch into their own unknown depths of letting loose, turning up the amps and screaming? It's a strong possibility.

One of the lines in the song is: Give me the love, but not the disease! If that's not a rock star mantra...

Purple is an old Rolling Stones song: "I know, it's only rock & roll, but I like it, like it, yes I do..."

Below is Purple's latest video to their song titled Thirteen from their debut album named 409. Very interesting how the whole song and video is only 99 seconds long, and it's not one of those teaser videos. Enjoy! GC

The amazing soul man, Lee Fields, is on a international tour and he has been getting major love in France this last week.

The acclaimed Paris France based music video productions of La Blogotheque have been featured on our network before, and we are proud to present Lee Fields, an artist we have also featured here before. La Blogotheque's typical style of filming is to capture artists performing in crowded streets and public places, usually in an around Paris.

OK Go - I Won't Let You Down

MusicTelevision presents the latest from OK Go

Here is another excellent One Shot Music Video from OK Go.  The band has a long and highly creative history that stretches back to 1998, which can is meticulously laid out on their Wikipedia page, so won't bore you with too many details here.  It is their one shot music videos, that were first noticed here back in March of 2010 with This Too Shall Pass, that makes OK Go so interesting.  Additional music videos, all the way up until this most present one, have also been "one shot videos" that give these guys so much credibility in the creative planning side.  The videos take dozens and dozens of tries to get it in one shot, with tons of work going into every move in their videos. When you mix in all the other  elements of their music and business dealings, the realization that they are a real organization and not just a band comes into focus. GC

Did Pharrell Williams borrow the idea for "Happy" from C2C?

 C2C
- C2C -
There is a question that has been burning in my mind ever since I became aware of a team of four DJ's/Beatmaster/Performance Artists known as C2C out of France. C2C came up with their own original song titled "Happy", as original as DJ's can be of course, as they sample other peoples songs into their own. Their music video for the song features some amazing dancing, and similarly to Pharrel's release, there was even a contest to involve fans from around the world. This immediately got me wondering after I heard it and saw the video below... Did Pharrell Williams ever hear/watch this C2C version of Happy before he penned his own song titled Happy, complete with dance video and contest? C2C released their own Happy song in December 2012 and Pharrell Williams released his version of Happy in November 2013, nearly one year later than C2C.  Perhaps it does not matter, for there is nothing new under the sun.  Regardless, C2C deserves some love, for they are a very talented group of guys who know how to muster up excellent music video producers as well. - GC

UPDATE/ANSWER TO THIS POST/QUESTION: A poster on Reddit known as GTAVSUCKS wrote that he thought Pharrell had once admitted that Ce Lo Green wrote the song for Pharrell. However, after doing some research, was led to a story about the history of the song at Contact Music that states: "In an interview with Howard Stern for his US radio show, Pharrell said: ''[Cee Lo Green] wanted to do it .. and he did do it. He sounded amazing on it. He burns my version! But ... how do I say this diplomatically? The powers that be, at the time, did not see it fit for him. Some folks on his team just felt that the priority should be on [Cee Lo's] album at the time [2012's 'Cee Lo's Magic Moment'], so they elected not to do that song."

C2C - Happy


Here is one more very cool song titled Delta :)

Bobby Womack Has Left The Room

A fond farewell to one of the world's great soul artists.

Just got word (Friday June 28, 2014) from a Rolling Stone feed moments ago that Bobby Womack has passed away at age 70.

RIP Bobby Womack

If you missed this recent 2013 BBC documentary on the life of Bobby Womack titled Across A 110th Street, this is it below. It's filled with great stories, music and too many great artists to even mention.



Below is a tasty classic track from 1988 by Womack & Womack titled Teardrops



Just below is an old school Todd Rungren video with Bobby and many others helping Todd make a recording with a full band of real players,w strings, horns and all. This video is filled with sweet candid footage from the actual recording session for Rundgren's 1989 record titled Nearly Human.

When Bernhoft isn't just singing in front of a piano like in the first video, he becomes a self contained one man band, that relies on loops he lays down with his voice and with instruments as he goes as narrated in the 2nd and 3rd videos below.

It was shot on a fancy RED camera and directed by Justin Burquist from In Vitro Films. It made its premiere today on OneMoreLesbian.com and you can buy the song on iTunes HERE.

Kim Churchill

Music Television presents Kim Churchill
Australian Surfer and Recording Artist, Kim Churchill
This video below is a repost of a song featured here in a July 2011 post of an outstanding emerging artist named Kim Churchill.

Out of all his videos I have found on him, this particular live performance on a freezing cold balcony in Melbourne Australia still resonates as capturing his true essence of the humble, yet gifted songwriter and soulful crooner and guitarist that he really is. Enjoy! - GC

A Valentine's Day interpretation of Beyonce's XO by Nikki Yanofsky

MusicTelevision.Com presents Nikki Yanofsky
Nikki Yanofsky
This is the first time Beyonce has ever been mentioned here, and it is not to feature Beyonce herself. It is to feature a wonderful young jazz artist named Nikki Yanofsky of Montreal, Canada. Nikki has a long history of singing classic jazz standards of legends like Ella Fitzgerald. In 2006, at age 12, she became the youngest artist to ever headline at the Montreal International Jazz Festival. Most recently, now age 20, Nikki has been making music that crosses over into pop, produced by Quincy Jones. (See additional links below). For today, she recorded a special live Valentine's Day jazz interpretion of Beyonce's song titled XO. Enjoy! - GC

Lianne La Havas - A long list of tasty favorite video picks of this gifted one.

Lianne La Havas is working with Prince
Lianne La Havas is collaborating with Prince!
Lianne La Havas is one of my most favorite emerging artists out there.  It's very nice to see her two part film titled Elusive & Gone is presently #4 and holding on the MusicTelevision.Com Top 10 Most Viewed Posts list. (see the sidebar on the right side of this page)

If you are already a fan of Lianne's, you'll be glad to know that the artist, formerly and presently known as Prince, has sought her out to be part of one of his projects.  He is taking his band, 3rd Eye Girl, to do some secret concerts.  Prince did a press conference at Lianne's house of all places!  The details are all very mysterious, but something cool is brewing, that is for sure.

Heartbreak and an ex-boyfriend is what drove Lianne La Havas to pick up that now famous second hand guitar, find herself and write songs from her heart. The man who broke her heart should be thanked!  For, even while in abstentia, he is at least partially responsible for helping generate such great musical artistry.  Oh, how love and heartbreak can inspire genius!

Her impeccable original song stylings and voice are beautiful. Her unique guitar picking and strumming is part of her originality that is inspiring many guitarists who happen upon her sound. She is still way too under the radar in my opinion, but she really has got a majorly loyal and solid international fan base that keeps growing organically.

She writes the vast majority of her song repertoire and only rarely does an occasional cover, quite beautifully I must say.  See the great live cover song by Lianne at the In The Woods Barn Session in the 6th video  below where she covers a song by Little Dragon titled Twice.

In describing Lianne La Havas, Beautiful is a word that cannot be overly emphasized here on every level from her music, to her poise, to her genuine authenticity. Enjoy! - GC

Lianne La Havas - Is Your Love Big Enough?


Here is a live take and scaled down version of the song above, "Is Your Love Big Enough". It's just Lianne singing with her guitar and Joss Stone sitting next to her grooving out on the French TV show TARATATA. Lianne La Havas is an inspired artist with "it".
