Sultry inspiration to enjoy nature with ‘Water’ from Charlotte Lansman

Singer-songwriter Charlotte Lansman is back with her fab debut single called ‘Water‘.

The debut single from jazzy-soul singer Charlotte Lansman. This song is about someone finding themselves in a position where they feel destitute, abandoned, alone and trapped in the emotional roller coaster of a relationship going south. Then able to find strength and peace by escaping within.

Out of the room, the building, the city, and into the quiet solitude of water. Inspired in part by a past relationship and in part by quarantine which is totally understandable. Initially feeling completely trapped, then the freedom of taking the daily hour for exercise in nature. Space to breathe and reboot the brain from this crazy world. It’s time start again and learn from before.

Water‘ from Charlotte Lansman who tingles the air with this song that is so beautiful. I love her voice and this is a song that was made with so much care and heart. This is the type of music that I wish got more love. For us to be fully happy inside, we need to experience being in water for healing. Water heals all wounds. Dust off those goggles.

Acoustic Jazz duo Muca & La Marquise eloquently show their love for ”London” with debut single

Muca & La Marquise is a new project from London-based songwriter and producer Muca that uses sound and vision to bring to life a twenty-two-year-old girl who possesses a hauntingly unique voice that will inspire the hearts and minds of all who come across her. The debut song is called ”London” and this is precisely the laid-back song we need in 2020.

London” from new duo Muca & La Marquise is a track about falling in love with the stunning city and the heartbreak of having to leave it behind. The song all reflects the emotions of a Londoner, contemplating their future. This is a beautiful song and I love their knowledge of the legendary city. Flower Market, Cat & Mutton, Regent’s Canal and Hackney Central are all mentioned and this is so well done by illustrator and animator Clara Santos.

This is a stunning soul-pop/jazz song with a peaceful yet educational vibe here. Muca & La Marquise are a new duo with a full album slated for later on in the year. If this is a sign of things to come then ”London” is a terrific start.

Thanae & Pulse and Soul – Fast Forward: Revel in the Resonance of Soul-Soaked Contemporary Jazz

Jazz Soul vocalist Thanae made a frankly genius move to team up with the band Pulse and Soul to record her latest album Between 2 Doors. One standout track from the album has to be Fast Forward, Thanae’s soulfully rich style gels perfectly with the synergy on offer from the four-piece band. Fast Forward is a track rich in melody, hype and Funk simultaneously. There aren’t too many bands around today with the ability to create such an overwhelmingly powerful sound.

You can check out Thanae and Pulse and Soul’s live recording of Fast Forward via YouTube now, I’m sure you’ll join me in the agreement that Thanae is the artist with the ability to pour soul back into the soundwaves. Her ethereally sensual style sits perfectly against the gentle drum rolls, soars of the sax, polyphonic wonder of the keys and of course the ever grounding bassline. Together the band and Thanae create intricate arrangements as the vocals take care of the candid expression of pure passion for the soul.
