Jaymes

I just love the way Jaymes Young spells his first name. Maybe some people find it strange, pretentious, hipster-ish, etc. but I really like it. I think I just generally like the letter “y.” It turns the name into something poetic or “more flowy” in my most poetic terms…

His voice is equally lovely and I’ve come to check his spotify page over and over again waiting for more music to be released. Today I was playing around youtube and found a video for a song that really hits home today.

Coeur de Pirate

Beatrice Martin’s instagram is my favorite instagram in the world. No exaggeration. This is 150% true.

Beatrice Martin might be known to most as the artist behind Coeur de Pirate – Montreal based and known for reviving la chanson française. I don’t speak french but my french speaking friends assure me that I would adore her lyrics. I’m completely mesmerized by her voice and piano playing that I feel I understand the songs even though the lyrics are a mystery.

Below is a live performance of a cover from her latest album, Trauma, and an official music video for a song from her second album, Blonde. I adore all three albums. Please take a listen!

And now for some of her awesome instagram posts:

Daughter

I first saw daughter in a dingy basement in Bath, England. I paid approximately 5 pounds and really enjoyed her soothing voice and talented band. I love listening to her when I’m simply overwhelmed.

Daughter keeps me calm and I hope you find her quiet nature as delightful as I do.

In addition, she has awesome taste in music! Below is a video she posted on her blog by Sucré. If the vocalist sounds familiar, Stacy Dupree-King was once a part of Eisley.
