An interesting Voces8 video from yesterday. Rather than the full octet, it's just first soprano Andrea Haines with tenor Blake Morgan showing off his guitar chops for a song by UK composer Benjamin Britten.
Andrea is now the second longest running current member, with only co-founder Barnaby Smith being longer. Blake is their only non-British member, being from Michigan, something they often tease him about in intros.
Haven't had a new video from The Hound + The Fox in a while. This is quite a different sound for McKenzie and Reilly, almost getting into EDM. A lively song of summer romance with a sexy video to match.
Celebrating the contributions of immigrants on Canada Day, here's Swedish-Canadian songstress Julia Westin with a new original track. As I have discussed before, she met Quebecois musician David Meshow (yes, he spells like that as his stage name) online and is now married to him and lives in Quebec. David produces and plays on most of her recordings.
Toyah and Robert look like they could be somebody's parents or even grandparents. But not many people can count one of the greatest guitar players in rock music as their grandpa. Robert Fripp not only founded prog legend King Crimson, but played on many recordings by the likes of David Bowie.
His wife Toyah Willcox has a long recording career of her own. This song is one of hers, from an album, In the Court of the Crimson Queen, whose title alludes to a famous album by her spouse's band.
Here are Robert and Toyah in their kitchen. Her singing is perhaps not at its best, but there is no mistaking that guitar sound. Robert Fripp is still one of the best.
