8 cracking songs that made my summer

Hello all! Coucou à tous

The summer holiday is nearly over, the older kids are due back at school on Tuesday morning and I am ready to be back writing on this blog. The holiday was very welcomed and it has given me a chance to get new ideas for future blog posts so stay tuned!

As music is constantly on at home – style depends on the mood – I am always happy when I discover new sounds. And I find that in the summer, certain memories end up being associated with a few tunes.

Here is a cracking list of 8 songs I found particularly awesome Continue reading

My latest musical discoveries/Mes derniers coups de coeur musicaux

I have not shared a few of my latest musical finds and crushes for a long time. I know that typically my musical discoveries posts are not always the most popular ones on the blog but music is something I don’t think I could live without (I know this sounds pretty dramatic but…it is!).


Sometimes you need a few nice names to refresh and update those playlists of yours and this is where I come:)

Here are my new favourites in this beginning of the new year: 2 French singers who happen to sing in English and 3 British artists, yeah! Continue reading

Music to my ears/De la musique plein les oreilles

I discovered a little while ago a fantastic initiative called ‘Bach to Baby’ 🎹

A haunting voice/Une voix envoutante

🇬🇧 She looks like a cross between the singer Sia and her dancer Maddie Ziegler, who you will have seen in so many of the singer’s videos or live performances on shows on TV. As a result, her face didn’t really catch my attention at first.

Nice new soul voice on the block/Une belle voix soul a decouvrir

She was #2 on the list of Sound to watch in 2016 and I can understand why.
Alessia Cara is a cool newcomer on the musical scene and I am sure we’ll hear a lot more about her in the months to come. Her voice will surely gain in maturity but this 19 yo Canadian has already got tons to offer!

A little bit of Portishead in the air with her soulful hit song ‘Here’ 👇

Elle était No2 sur la liste des nouveaux sons a suivre en 2016 établie par la BBC et je peux comprendre pourquoi. La jeune Canadienne Alessia Cara a du talent a revendre du haut de ses 19 printemps: une belle voix ‘soul’ qui ne pourra que s’affiner avec l’experience et l’age.

Ecoutez donc ce chouette tube ‘Here’ aux forts accents de Portishead…pour les amateurs.
