I don’t have my own TV so when I do go home to spend time with the family, the first thing I do is switch on the telly (just kidding…the second thing). I find it’s the perfect way to get acquainted with any new TV shows or adverts that I have missed out on. I can’t resist flicking through the music channels for a good hour because I usually come across some great tunes or sometimes I catch the premier of a new music video. This was the case for the song, “Talk to me” by Nick Brewer ft Bibi Bourelly. I eagerly waited 15 minutes for this music video to premier because I thought I already knew who Nick Brewer was. His name sounded really familiar for some reason. When the video started playing, I realised that I had no idea who Nick Brewer was but that this song of his sounded amazing!!! I love everything about this song from the 90’s sample, taken from Crystal Waters’ Gypsy Woman, the verses which Brewer delivers on point, and the hook and pounding chorus which gets me in the party mood!!! Bibi Bourelly is the female vocalist that lends her voice to the this song and for those who may not know who she is…then I am sure you are aware of her work because she wrote Rihanna’s Bitch Better Have My Money.
“Mr Brewer you have definitely gained a fan in me!!!” 😉
Zak Abel is the guy who laid down the vocals for Gorgon City’s song “Unmissable.” And his story definitely does not end there. Mr Abel has brought out some of his own songs and they all sound mega-amazing. Definitely check out the songs “These Are The Days”, “Alchemy” and “Wise Enough” which were brought to life by Joker [producer]. I think Zak Abel sounds stunning when he sings, he has got a very sharp, soulful and dynamic voice. Another artist that springs to mind when I hear Zak Abel is the talented Will Heard… And this is not because they sound the same but because I think their voices are well-suited. (It would make my day if they did a duet together). It seems as though, they both have been influenced by the same styles and genres of music. I remember reading an article with Emeli Sande and she said how an artist’s voice is shaped by the music they listen to, which makes comparisons between artists inevitable. Although, they can be considered a compliment, constant comparisons can also make it hard for musicians to establish their own identity. That is why when there are similarities between artists, I think it is important to acknowledge their differences as well, because every artist is distinct and unique from the next. *RANT OVER* Anyway I digress but please check out Mr Abel as he is a singer everybody should be taking notice of 😉
