MusicTelevision.Com presents Paolo Nutini

Here is new song deserving of hit status around the world. It's for sure the real deal, the genuine article, no matter where it ends up on the charts. No smoke & mirrors... no pomp & circumstance needed. The song is titled Iron Sky from Scottish artist Paolo Nutini and his soon to be released second album titled 'Caustic Love' on the UK unit of Atlantic Records. Brilliant! - GC

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

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".
