How Would You Like It ~ Lauren Aquilina

Discovered this amazing song by Lauren Aquilina this week, and I’ve not listened to much else.

How Would You Like It is a hauntingly beautiful ballad about heartbreak and recriminations. Have a listen!

I love the phrasing and the powerful blend of light and shade in the delivery. Also, it’s great fun to sing along, with air grabs and everything!

Love love love!!!

Music Monday 5

Music Monday is brought to you with a mainly soulful, acoustic r ‘n’ b flavour, featuring tracks from Esco Williams, Mic Lowry and Delleile Ankrah!

First up: Esco Williams – Oh Jordan

I discovered this track via the MOBO Awards twitter stream. I instantly fell in love with the beautiful harmonies and listened to it on repeat for weeks! It’s got a totally different vibe to any act around at present and Esco deserves to go a long way. It feels really organic. Esco is a singer/songwriter/producer from Liverpool and he is a winner of the MOBO Unsung award.
As an aside, I just know that my Mother would’ve loved Esco’s music too, and that in itself makes me smile.
I was delighted to find another of his songs, Breaking Bones, on youtube.

Then I stumbled across a group of young chaps who had posted a cover of Beyonce’s Drunk in Love. They go by the name of Mic Lowry and they are a boy band from Liverpool. Again I fell in love with the harmonies, and I have to say that this group contains some seriously powerful voices. Individually they are Ben, Michael, Delleile, Akia & Kaine. There’s something fascinating about a group of lads who look like they might be more likely to rap or just be hanging about doing normal teenage stuff………until they open their mouths to sing and those melodies just flow like they’ve been recording artists for decades.
Then I discovered that they were mentored by Esco Williams and it all slotted together like the orchestra on prom night!
Here are a few of their covers.

Rather Be – Clean Bandit ~ cover by Mic Lowry

MNEK cover by Mic Lowry – Ready For Your Love

And finally I discovered a cover of a Chris Brown song I hadn’t heard before, by one of the singers of Mic Lowry, Delleile Ankrah. This is him apparently just messing around, but having gone on to listen Chris Brown’s own version, this young man has far more soul in his voice!

So have a listen to all these talented chaps. I could happily listen to a full album from any or all of them. Ones to watch!

This week I have been listening to some new singalong faves
The first is Flatline by MKS (aka the original Sugababes)

For Music Monday part 4, track number 2
Is Alicia Keys with If I Ain’t Got You.

Track number three has got a killer beat
It’s ‘They Don’t Care About Us’ from the man with the moonwalking feet!

The next is more melodic and I think it is an absolute delight!
It’s Mr Peter Andre with Perfect Night.
