Craig David is coming to L.A.!


Opened up my inbox this morning to this amazing news, which is why I’m taking time out of my workday to blog about it 😛 I’ve been waiting for years to see Craig David. I wrote in a previous post about how I learned about him, and embedded a YouTube video of one of the songs on his latest album.

“Following My Intuition” (his latest album), btw, has some pretty catchy tunes. The lyrics aren’t all that phenomenal, but that’s okay. I still enjoy listening to it.

Super excited for May 11! I was honestly thinking I would probably have to fly to the U.K. to be able to see him live because I wasn’t sure if he was ever going to come here in the near future.

But now I don’t! 🙂


“Right Love, Wrong Time” – Anuhea

Anuhea‘s gonna be at the Island Vibe Music Festival in San Diego this Saturday, so I wanted to share one of my favorite songs by her 🙂

I’m sharing the acoustic version because that’s what was on her channel, but you can also find a studio version on YouTube if you search for the song.

“When the Bassline Drops” – Craig David x Big Narstie

I first learned about Craig David when downloading songs off the Internet became a thing. I must have been 8 or 9 at the time, and I was determined to build a big music library, and asked my dad’s coworker if he had any recommendations on artists to check out.

He named Craig David, and I’ve been in love with this guy’s music since. He doesn’t get a lot of hype (he deserves more and can he please have a show in LA??) and hasn’t come out with an album in the last how many years, but I’m always on the lookout for his new stuff. Here’s one that was on replay for me a couple of weeks ago.

Ed Sheeran – The A Team (Priska cover)

Last week I had the opportunity to meet and chat with Priska, an incredibly talented Asian American singer & songwriter. We met at Found Coffee, a local coffee shop in Eagle Rock. I’d seen her perform at an event at LA City Hall and at Tuesday Night Cafe both last year, and someone I met was able to connect me with her. (Hooray for networking!)

You can check out her out on YouTube. Great stuff.

7 days a week

That’s how many times I should be updating my travel blog, someone I met today told me. I think he’s right, but it’s kind of an overwhelming thought. Producing content on my own twice a week is already time consuming.

It can be easy to overlook the amount of work it takes to blog. Bloggers don’t only write copy. We also edit our own work, format posts, arrange photo placement, wrack our brains to think of post titles, and schedule corresponding social media posts, among other things.

I don’t even write here as consistently as I’d like to. Not sure if/when I’ll post more frequently here. I guess we’ll just have to see 🙂
