A Christmas song by Tim Minchin

MusicTelevision.Com presents Tim Minchin

This morning, Gaby Moreno shared a note with her friends that read: "Last night I saw Tim Minchin performing at Largo. He played this song. Can't tell you how much it moved me..such a beautiful Christmas song from an "non religion" perspective..."

Tim Minchin wrote the following about his song:  "A sentimental song about Christmas. This version is taken from the Australian 'Ready For This?' DVD. As in previous years, all proceeds from the sale of this song during the months of November, December and January will go to the National Autistic Society (NAS)."

Album cover to Sara Bareilles record titled The Blessed Unrest
We love Sara Bareilles and her authenticism. She is completely unmanufactured and a really grounded down to earth human being who deserves all the success that can go to a star. This video is just another tiny example of the things she does for fans and just one glimpse of her kind heartedness. GC

Just below is a live take of the song that is brilliant! It shows how beautiful her music typically is live, in a minimalist setting with no real pomp or circumstance needed, in her true element.

The raw talent of Bernhoft

MusicTelevision.Com presents Bernhoft

I found out about the fabulous Jarle Bernhoft three years ago. Thanks goes former Exposé vocalist Kelly Moneymaker for the introduction. Bernhoft is fresh, organic and unmanufactured. He has been honing his craft, touring the world and emerging for years.

When Bernhoft isn't just singing in front of a piano like in the first video, he becomes a self contained one man band, that relies on loops he lays down with his voice and with instruments as he goes as narrated in the 2nd and 3rd videos below. His soulful and deliberate croon is contagious and entertaining. Enjoy! GC

Bernhoft - Stay With Me

Kim Churchill - Tides (Live Music Video)

Live Music Television presents Kim Churchill
Australian Surfer and Recording Artist, Kim Churchill
This video below is a repost of a song featured here in a July 2011 post of an outstanding emerging artist named Kim Churchill.

Out of all his videos I have found on him, this particular live performance on a freezing cold balcony in Melbourne Australia still resonates as capturing his true essence of the humble, yet gifted songwriter and soulful crooner and guitarist that he really is. Enjoy! GC

A Valentine's Day interpretation of Beyonce's XO by Nikki Yanofsky

LiveMusicTelevision.Com presents Nikki Yanofsky performing XO by Beyonce

This is the first time Beyonce has ever been mentioned here, and it is not to feature Beyonce herself. It is to feature a wonderful young jazz artist named Nikki Yanofsky of Montreal, Canada.

Nikki has a long history of singing classic jazz standards of legends like Ella Fitzgerald. In 2006, at age 12, she became the youngest artist to ever headline at the Montreal International Jazz Festival. Most recently, now age 20, Nikki has been making music that crosses over into pop, produced by Quincy Jones. (See additional links below). For today, she recorded a special live Valentine's Day jazz interpretion of Beyonce's song titled XO. Enjoy! - GC

Lianne La Havas - A long list of tasty favorite video picks of this gifted one.

Lianne La Havas is working with Prince
Lianne La Havas is collaborating with Prince!
Lianne La Havas is one of my most favorite emerging artists out there.  It's very nice to see her two part film titled Elusive & Gone is presently #4 and holding on the MusicTelevision.Com Top 10 Most Viewed Posts list. (see the sidebar on the right side of this page)

If you are already a fan of Lianne's, you'll be glad to know that the artist, formerly and presently known as Prince, has sought her out to be part of one of his projects.  He is taking his band, 3rd Eye Girl, to do some secret concerts.  Prince did a press conference at Lianne's house of all places!  The details are all very mysterious, but something cool is brewing, that is for sure.

Heartbreak and an ex-boyfriend is what drove Lianne La Havas to pick up that now famous second hand guitar, find herself and write songs from her heart. The man who broke her heart should be thanked!  For, even while in abstentia, he is at least partially responsible for helping generate such great musical artistry.  Oh, how love and heartbreak can inspire genius!

Her impeccable original song stylings and voice are beautiful. Her unique guitar picking and strumming is part of her originality that is inspiring many guitarists who happen upon her sound. She is still way too under the radar in my opinion, but she really has got a majorly loyal and solid international fan base that keeps growing organically.

She writes the vast majority of her song repertoire and only rarely does an occasional cover, quite beautifully I must say.  See the great live cover song by Lianne at the In The Woods Barn Session in the 6th video  below where she covers a song by Little Dragon titled Twice.

In describing Lianne La Havas, Beautiful is a word that cannot be overly emphasized here on every level from her music, to her poise, to her genuine authenticity. Enjoy! - GC

Here is a live take and scaled down version of the song above, "Is Your Love Big Enough". It's just Lianne singing with her guitar and Joss Stone sitting next to her grooving out on the French TV show TARATATA. Lianne La Havas is an inspired artist with "it".

A little more love for Lady (the band)

MusicTelevision.Com presents Lady featuring Nicole Wray and Terri Walker
Lady features vocalists Nicole Wray and Terri Walker
Must give some love with one more plug for some excellent soul artists that made our year whole last year...

With a thick old school R&B sound living and making it in the here and now, soul divas ‎Terri Walker and Nicole Wray created a new duo that they call Lady.

Hopefully you too will love how the band and their label have made Lady's music and remixes available in WAV, MP3, CD and Vinyl LP's directly from Lady's page at Truth & Soul Records.  I personally love buying WAV files because they sound so much better than MP3 files, basically being the same quality as the CD without the burden the Disc. It's nice that the band and the label offer WAV as well as the VINYL :) Let me know what you think at GC

Six Great Performances from Eric Clapton's most recent Crossroads Guitar Festival

MusicTelevision.Com presents highlights from Crossroads Guitar Fest 2013

Crossroads Guitar Festival 2013 - Madison Square Garden
(c) Madison Square Garden, L.P.
Below are just a handful of excellent full length songs and very tasty performances pulled from the Eric Clapton's most recent Crossroads Guitar Festival of 2013.  In fact, the DVD's from each of the four Crossroads Guitar Festivals held so far are all incredibly well done and worth the watching time and time again.  Eric Clapton handpicks phenomenal upcoming as well as well established greats, the best of the best, to share the stage with he and his musical peers.

The first festival was in 2004 and has occurred every three years through to 2013 so far. The festival benefits the The Crossroads Centre, Antigua. The centre was founded by Eric Clapton in 1997 to provide quality, affordable treatment for alcohol and other drug dependencies to a community that greatly needed, but lacked such a facility. This 32-bed centre, located on the island of Antigua, has become recognized as an international Centre of Excellence for addiction treatment.

First up below is a seriously awesome version of the Allman Brothers Band classic song Whipping Post. Gregg Allman and the entire band and the song sounds as fantastic as it's ever sounded, as good as they did at The Fillmore East in 1970. Turn it up and enjoy! GC
