Lianne La Havas – Tiny Desk Concert [Performance] (UK)

October 26th, 2015 | By Janei

We recently missed Lianne La Havas live when she made her stop in New York, and have been beating ourselves up about it. We thought we would never get a chance to see Ms. Havas perform live…until we found footage of her Tiny Desk Performance at NPR.

For those that’s not up on the Tiny Desk Performances, its when a notable or fast rising artist comes to the NPR studios and performs a intimate 10-20 minute segment for the people in the room. Lianne La Havas and her backups showcased “What You Don’t Do” and “Unstoppable” from her new album “Blood” (out now), and “Forget” from her first album.

This just made us beat ourselves up even more…

Jennah Bell – Somebody Loved [Perfroance] (CA)

June 4th, 2014 | By Janei

Hearing Jennah Bell sing is like a breath of Febreeze, and it’s a shame that her music is still treated like subway talent. Still there are some people who sought out her work, and even flew her to a different country to showcase her music. Jennah recently has been touring in the Netherlands, and was invited to do a personal performance with Rockstone Sessions. Here she sung “Somebody Loved“. If you like this, you should check out some of her other performances here

July 22nd, 2013 | By Janei

Rap-P is killing these acoustic sessions. We have another clip with Jhene Aiko singing the timeless words of Tupac Shakur’s “Keep Ya Head Up“. Growing up listening to Tupac its only right Jhene pays tribute to the fallen rapper.
