Friday Find



Completely obsessed is the only way I can describe my reaction to this album and Emeli Sande.  She is an artist and songwriter from Scotland, and after falling in love with the song "Next to Me" (view video), I previewed the rest of the album and downloaded it immediately.  There are semblances of Amy Winehouse, Duffy, Alicia Keys, and Beyonce throughout the songs, and the album has a good mix of upbeat songs and soulful ballads with an R&B vibe.  If nothing else you must download Next to Me, Breaking the Law, Where I Sleep, and River... actually just get the album and then tell me how much you love it, because I know you will!

I have heard of her but haven't checked her out too much yet, I am going to have to give it a listen, I love all the other singers you mentioned so if she's a blend of all of them, I'm guessing I'll like her too!

I read the 1st few lines of this post on Bloglovin' earlier today but was planning to save it for later. I was home cleaning just now and a super fun song came on. Since I was in a different room I used Shazam to identify it... it was this song. I freaking love it!
