It’s about DAMN time America started REALLY paying attention to the UK—UK pop and electronic music in particular. I feel like British soul has sort of been big here in the states since…well forever, but Amy Winehouse certainly brought about the latest BOOM…a BOOM that hasn’t really slowed down since. No complaints here!
Since the arrival of English…
#TBT to August 2013, when I saw @samsmithworld play an intimate set at 250 capacity @mercuryloungeny. Today he announced a U.S. Arena tour, including a show @madisonsquaregarden (18,000+ capacity). Amazing to see how far he’s come. 🙌👏😘 #Music #newmusic #britishmusic #ukmusic #livemusic #nyc #manhattan #samsmith #inthelonelyhour #les #msg #madisonsquaregarden #nowplaying #justdiscovered #throwbackthursday (at Mercury Lounge)
Singer, songwriter, political activist, philanthropist; Annie Lennox is all of these things and THEN SOME. She’s also an ICON. Like, a legit ICON. On October 21st (Internationally on October 27th via Island Records), the 59 year-old Scott will release Nostalgia (Blue Note Records), her sixth studio album (and FIRSTin four years). Some artists are content…
I recently had the privilege of seeing 35-year-old British jazz/soul virtuoso Jamie Cullum play an intimate club here in New York City and MAN, what a treat. In town for a couple of shows opening for the one and only Billy Joel at Madison Square Garden, Cullum squeezed in a couple of intimate sets and showcases to promote his forthcoming Blue Note Records debut, Interlude, out January 27th, his…
YESSSS. NEW sophie-e-b dance project? Well…sort of! Excited for “Wandermix”!
From the beginning, Wanderlust has been an incredible project to work on. I have been able to make actual so many of the ideas I’ve had - or the ideas of the folk involved in the album.
Now, I’m very pleased to announce Wandermix, the final instalment of that. It’s a long playing remix of some of the songs from Wanderlust, which has been done by Roy Kerr (aka Freelance Hellraiser).
I’m so happy with the results - Roy has done such a wonderful job. I hope people enjoy it. It’s out on 3rd November as part of a 2 x CD and digital deluxe version of Wanderlust. Or, if you already have the album, you can get Wandermix on its own as 12” or digitally.
See? I told you I wouldn’t leave dance music behind for good.
Back when the “Queen of Hip-Hop” FIRST teased new music off her forthcoming 12th studio album, The London Sessions (out December 2nd on Capitol Records), I was very excited. A Disclosure-produced Mary J. Blige dance banger? YES PLEASE! I mean, we all could have guessed something was going down between Blige and the Disclosure boys (Guy and Howard Lawrence) after she appeared on stage with them…

I’ve had a musical crush on LA-based/British-born electrosoul outfit, Until The Ribbon Breaks (Pete, Elliot and James) since I had the pleasure of seeing them open for alt-pop/rock GODDESS Lorde on her first MAJORU.S. tour just over a year ago. Well, since then, this musical crush has developed into a full-blown passionate love affair, which intensifies with each new…
What happens when you put TWO FIERCE SCANDINAVIAN indiepop divas together? You get an AMAZING song, obviously. “One More" is the new collaboration from Swedish singer/songwriter ELLIPHANT and Danish electropop Goddess MØ. It’s taken from the forthcoming new EP from Elliphant, also called One More, out October 14th on Kemosabe Records. Get excited!
You’ve seen this New Zealand brother/sister duo open for Sam Smith here in America, dazzling audiences with cuts from their beautiful synthpop debut ‘Evergreen.’ Now you can own it! The album is out now (via capitolrecords) but I’m giving away 2 copies (U.S./Canada). Enter on my blog! Winners will be announced Monday, October 20th!
