Whip It. Whip It Good!

image

I’m no Picasso by any means, but I painted this canvas for the kitchen and I think it turned out pretty cute! This was the second canvas painting I’ve done.. the first was of a pumpkin, which you can see here.

I seen a similar print for sale on Etsy, and loved the whole idea of combining song lyrics with kitchen appliances. To me, Music + Baking go together like Peanut Butter + Jelly. A perfect combo.

I think I’m going to do one more painting similar to this for the kitchen to make it a set. Either of a beater, or a rolling pin. It’s a fun & simple way to add a pop of colour to the kitchen!

Gotta Hear This: Lover, You Should’ve Come Over by Jeff Buckley

Image

No explanation needed. Jeff Buckley is one of the greats.

‘It’s never over, my kingdom for a kiss upon her shoulder
It’s never over, all my riches for her smiles when i slept so soft against her
It’s never over, all my blood for the sweetness of her laughter
It’s never over, she’s the tear that hangs inside my soul forever’

Do your ears a favour and check errr out!

 2. Real Love by The Boom Booms

Real Love is available for FREE download here!

I love everything about The Boom Booms – their name, chill tunes & positive vibes.

I got the chance to see them live this past Summer and have been hooked ever since. Their live show is incredible. So uplifting – its like one big, soulful dance party. They are constantly touring, so if you get a chance to see them live, DO IT! You won’t be disappointed.

3. If I Didn’t Know Better by Sam Palladio & Clare Bowen (from the television show Nashville)

image

John Paul White of The Civil Wars wrote this song with singer-songwriter Arum Rae. White and his Civil Wars bandmate, Joy Williams originally recorded the song for their ‘Live at Eddie’s Attic’ 2009 album.

I love Sam & Clare’s version on the show.

Sam Palladio who plays Gunnar on Nashville is in an indie folk band called Salt Water Thief. 

4. Crying In The Night by Buckingham Nicks

image

Buckingham Nicks is a 10-track LP that Stevie Nicks & Lindsey Buckingham recorded before joining Fleetwood Mac. Although the album was considered a commercial flop and was never officially released, there are quite a few gems on the CD. Crying In The Night is my favorite.

5. Crooked Smile by J. Cole feat. TLC

From my headphones to yours, Enjoy. 🙂

Song: Millions
Artist: Hannah Georgas

Vancouver, BC has such a strong music scene right now and I believe Hannah Georgas is a main component as to why. Her synth-pop, singer/songwriter style and witty lyrics are a breath of fresh air.

Originally from Newmarket, Ontario, Hannah moved to Victoria to attend university, and later on located to Vancouver.
She won the “Emerging Artist of the Year” award at XM’s Verge Music Awards in 2011 and “Solo Artist of the Year” at the Sirius/XM-sponsored Indies. Her first album, ‘This Is Good’ was put up for the Polaris Music Prize. And at the 2011 Juno Awards, Georgas was nominated for both “Best New Artist of the Year” and “Songwriter of the Year.”

She has toured with fellow Canadian Kathleen Edwards as her opening act, plus was apart of Kathleen’s backing ensemble.

Her second self-titled album was released on October 2, 2012. Check out one of my favorite tracks from the album, titled ‘Millions’. Ryan Guldemond from the band MOTHER MOTHER also makes an appearance!

‘I wanna make a million bucks. I wanna make my millions.
My fear is a crutch, a little hell that I live in.
If she can do it what the fuck, how come I can’t?
I wanna make a million bucks. I wanna make my millions.’
