It ‘Figures’ — Jessie Reyez

Nearly 15 million views on YouTube — she must be doing something “right”.

‘Figures’ is a host of unapologetic language as real as life.  She doesn’t pull any punches in her prose.  The cinematography in this video is symbolically chaotic.  It mirrors well how loving someone can feel. Her delivery in this video doesn’t feel like premeditated pretense in an effort to be clever.  Girl …Click

‘Beat the Bullies’ with James Arthur and One Brave Chloe

amazon.co.uk

This is what I’m talking about right here! These moments like the ones in this video speak to the deepest parts of my heart and reverberate with its echoes.

A young girl named Chloe had so much to give , with all her light, love and wonder, found her self on the receiving end of cruel bullying. To add to such heartbreaking circumstances, she turned inward and begin to withdraw in ways that don’t usually bode well. Music, however, shown a bright beam of inspiration. Through charitable movement Beat the Bullies, she’d bare her heart in hopes to help others in a similar struggle. Her story reaches a surprising guest— James Arthur (one of the few she looks up to).

Man! 2.4 million ‘reactions’ later — these guys know how to pick a person up! Loving this brass and drum ensemble. I’m smiling and chuckling in my heart from start to finish as their music echoes down corridors of the subway. I see more and more footage of these gents popping up, and they are everywhere. It’s a thing of beauty see someone willing to make a stage anyway for the sake of what they love. It shows in their energy as they each share the spotlight and then in unison. They seem to have all the right …Take a Peek!

‘I’m Like a Star That Hasn’t Paid My Own Light Bill’ – Tank

Just because I couldn’t get enough of Tarriona Ball (‘Tank’, artist of Tank and the Bangas) the first time around, I could barely fit in my seat to contain myself when I stumbled across this video. (Thank you, again, Stylelikeu.com ! There was a part 2?)

She’s bone-chillingly vulnerable. In heart-churning pros, she undresses her soul like the garments she discarded to the floor. Her face twist with the pain of each unveiling.  There’s no hiding as her poetry is carried on the acoustics. We’re beyond wall-papered rooms and …See More…

It’s Do or Die – Tarriona ‘Tank’ Ball

Photo: Stylelikeu.com

I watched with tears and rented heart as ‘Tank’ shed her clothes article by article.  She is more than style. More than her big hair.  More than her layers of scarves. More than multi-colored stripped socks stretched to her knees.  Than her large vintage glasses her smiling ears showed through. So, piece by piece, they fell to the ground. She dangles her feet high above them from atop a tall wooden stool playfully blushing amidst her fallen garbs. Every layer seemed to …Read On…

They’re Not Just Another Sister Band (Joseph, the Band)

http://site.thebandjoseph.com/

Joseph – a sister trio—has a bit of an old school Mumford and Sons feel as they strip it down to bare bones with just an acoustic and their voices. Meegan ClosnerAllison ClosnerNatalie Closner hail from Portland, Oregon with their pop-folk sound.

There’s something rich here in their declarative “White Flag”, which kicks off the set.  There is no surrender.  There is no retreat. When the voices and circumstances around you roar for you to turn on your heels and go back, we say… They’re Not Just Another Sister Band (Joseph, the Band)
