Sarah Darling’s Video For ‘Halley’s Comet’ Is Magical

Since I saw US country singer Sarah Darling live last year at The Globe in Cardiff where she was supporting the sublime Ward Thomas, I have totally fallen in love with her super sweet vocals.

Her new album ‘Dream Country’ will be released on the 10th of February and I cannot wait to hear all the tracks. Her voice is just so soothing and melodically pleasing.

And I am totally in awe of the official music video for the stunning single ‘Halley’s Comet’. The fact that the clip is animated gives it a real magical feeling. It’s super sweet and the track is very inspirational.

I’m hoping she will announce a full UK tour soon as I would love to see her live again.

Hoping Lady Antebellum Come to Cardiff as Part of Their World Tour

I am totally in love with the 70s inspired new single ‘You Look Good’ from the wonderful Lady Antebellum. The two-year wait for new music from the multi-Grammy award winning trio was well worth it.

Their new sound is incredible, and even though it is different to their previous releases it still manages to sound authentically Lady A.

I am also really excited for their seventh studio album ‘Heart Break’ which will be out on the 9th of June, and I’ve seen they have announced a World Tour which is wonderful news.

I’m hoping that they will finally head to Wales as part of their new tour, fingers crossed they add a Cardiff date.

It’s such a shame that so many international music stars overlook the capital of Wales when putting together a world tour. I’m hoping that Lady Antebellum don’t overlook the city again.

I would love to see them live, so a Cardiff gig would be amazing.

Una Healy and Sam Palladio Sound So Good Together

Homegrown country music is really starting to find a home in the UK and I couldn’t be happier. But I was never expecting to fall in love with the former The Saturdays singer Una Healy’s voice, but her debut release ‘Stay My Love’ is beautiful.

The fact that her own stuff is so different to what she was creating when part of the group is fantastic, and proves how talented she really is. It would have been easy for her to carry on in the pop music genre but to do what she really loves and go back to her roots by releasing country/folk is amazing.

Her debut solo single ‘Stay My Love’ which features the star of US music drama Nashville Sam Palladio, is sublime. Their vocals sound so good together.

After one listen I quickly downloaded the track and I am having Una Healy’s debut album ‘The Waiting Game’ for my birthday. The LP is out on the 10th of February and my birthday is on the 14th.

I cannot wait to hear the full album and I am so excited that there is yet another homegrown country music artist on the scene.

Getting So into Shawn Mendes’ Music

As it’s the New Year I was interested in finding some new artists to listen to, and I was searching on Google, Twitter, and HMV to find some singers I hadn’t previously heard of or hadn’t at least  heard many of their songs.

And while searching, Shawn Mendes’ new album ‘Illuminate’ popped up. I have listened to a few of his songs before such as ‘Stitches’, and ‘Treat You Better’, but I have usually listened to covers of the tracks rather than actually hearing Shawn sing them.

So, after seeing the LP pop up on my search, I opened up YouTube to search for some Shawn Mendes songs, and the first one I came across was his new single ‘Mercy’. And wow, that was all I really needed to listen to.

That song is incredible and his vocal ability is off the scale. For me he sounds kind of similar to Nick Jonas, who I love so that was a win, win.

Anyway, after watching a few more videos I decided to purchase, ‘Handwritten’, ‘Handwritten Revised’, and ‘Illuminate’, and boy am I glad I did. I have just finished listening to the three albums and I now consider myself a fully fledged Shawn Mendes fan.

For someone so young his writing ability is so mature, and his vocals are insane. I’m excited to hear more of his music in the future.

So Excited For Shania Twain’s New Music

2017 has got off to an absolutely fantastic start where music is concerned! The reason why the year has started so well is the fact that the legendary Shania Twain has officially confirmed that her new music will be released this year (too excited)

She took to Twitter on New Years Day to confirm her exciting news; “Happy New Year! Thank you for all your continued support. So excited to share new music with you this year.
2017, i’m gonna getcha good” 

It’s hard to believe that it has been fifteen years since she released her last studio album ‘Up!’, I was only 8 years of age when that LP was released and it was around that time I started to get introduced to her music and over the years I started listening to her back catalogue and totally fell in love with her unique blend of country, rock, and pop music. She is a true icon of music and a trailblazer of mixing genres.

I am now 22, almost 23, and I cannot wait for Shania to release her fifth studio album and although it has been a very long time coming I know it is going to be well worth the wait.

There is still nobody quite like Shania Twain in the music industry and her wonderful writing talents have been sorely missed over the years.

Fingers crossed she releases the new LP very, very soon.
