Reblog: New Music Monday #15

On out joint blog, Songshine Sounds, my co-host KK just posted some new music. “New”, as in, this didn’t exist last week.

Now, you can’t fool me. I might be an old fart but I’ve heard of James Blake. I think. Or was that William Blake?

Does your spirit crave the new? I know mine does. So every Monday, I will feature a new song that wasn’t even in existence the week before. Yes, it’s true. Great new music is still being made every week. I will mix up the genres and artists to keep the surprises coming.


Baritone James Blake Litherland  is a London-born singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and record producer. His minimalist style and haunting vocals combine in his latest breath-taking release, “Say What You Will.” Blake tells reporters, “The song is about finding peace with who you are and where you’re at regardless of how well other people seem to be doing, and the endless feeling of comparison, especially with this generation where we’ve got the internet and Instagram and all that kind of stuff.”

KK posted this lovely, positive track on the music blog weco-host, Songshine Sounds.

It has some life in it, and I even liked the video!

Whether or not there’s sunshine where you are in the world this Sunday, we hope you’ll enjoy a sunny track, and that it uplifts your spirit.


 I’m on the road this week traveling through beautiful, sunny Normandy, France. “The Sun,” composed by Austrian musician Parov Stelar and featuring New Zealand Singer-Songwriter Graham Candy combines  jazz,  house,  electro,  hip hop, and pop to create the perfect summertime road-trip track. Hope you’re able to chase down your sunshine this week! Enjoy!

My partner in crime on Songshine Sounds, KK, posted this mellow John Denver track yesterday. I mean to repost but I got caught up in my own travel arrangements.

I remember John Denver mainly just for being such an easy listen. I guess he was much bigge in the USA but we got him here, without checking I think his biggest hit was Annie’s Song.

Still sounds silky smooth.

Perhaps no song expresses the power of a sunny day more than American singer-songwriterJohn Denver’s Sunshine on My Shoulders.” The song was originally released in 1971 onPoems, Prayers & Promises, and went to number one on theBillboardHot 100chart in the U.S. in early 1974.

There’s been little sunshine here in Munich so far this summer, and so this song just felt right today as I travel towards sunnier places. Enjoy!

I’m not massively into tunes with rap in them but this one sounds quite catchy, don’t you think?

This is KK’s “new music” pick on our music blog, Songshine Sounds. A week ago, it did not exist. Thanks, KK.

Childhood friends Josh Lloyd-Watson and Tom MacFarlan grew up playing together in Shepards Bush, London. In 2013, the pair formed the electro-funk duo,Jungle. This week, they’ve teamed up with Dreamville rapper Bas to create the feel-good track, “Romeo.” The song will appear on the duo’s third album, Loving in Stereo set to release on August 13th.

Today’s sunshine track is a feel-good summer song that is sure to have you bopping along. In 2019, singer-songwriter Cisco Adler teamed up with G. Love to create a punny video for “Sunday Vibe.” Not only does the video feature lots of ice cream sundaes, poolside guitar playing, but also Adler’s wife as a special ice cream truck guest.

The easy, breezy attitude of this fun-loving track will hopefully put you in the mood for some summertime refreshment and relaxation.

Reblog: Thursday Retro #12

Sexiest thing you will hear today. Guaranteed.

Songshine Sounds

Each Thursday I wanted to present a “golden oldie” track. I’m not going to place any bounds on genre, neither am I going to define exactly what “oldie” means to me, but I will try to keep to that description of “golden”. I hope you think so, too.

My pick this week:

Reblog: Tiny Tuesday #12

I share the music blog Sondshine Sounds with my friend KK, and every Tuesday she posts a “tiny” concert. These things originated in our various lockdowns, when artists often performed alone to the camera, or to only a very tiny audience.

Today KK has chosen a country singer – I knew it was country as soon as I saw them wearing those ginormous hats. Indoors.

Whaddya think? Like it?

If you’re anything like us, you’re missing your regular drip of live music to keep you going. Luckily, lots of mini-concerts are still happening online, and we can tune in to to get an intimate musical fix.


Last month, NPR Home Concerts brought together a country powerhouse trio for a special mini-concert. Miranda Lambert, Jack Ingram and Jon Randall have made music together before, and it shows.

Over the weekend, KK must have listened to loads of new tracks and she picked one out for us today on the blog I share with her, Songshine Sounds.

This is another one I quite like. It has a nice bit of energy in there. I’m trying to think if it reminds me of something. Any suggestions?

This week’s new artist, 6’6 tall singer-songwriter Jake Herring, commonly known as BabyJake, started playing guitar at age eight in Fort Myers, Florida. He gained musical recognition under his given name before releasing his first solo-album Don’t give me more problems, give me more wine in 2020.
