Cover, Featured | A Fresh take on Adele’s “Hello” with Leah Haxhi’s New Piano Cover

Posted by on December 9, 2015

Leah Haxhi, NYC singer/songwriter, hits us with another Adele cover that rivals all the competition. Keeping it simple with just minimal piano and vocals, this live video gives you the feeling you are sitting right there in the studio with Leah. At first it seems as if she is keeping it very close to the original, but then the second chorus breaks off into a free-style bridge that adds a unique twist to the song. Live studio visuals by Marin Hamataj and Brenton Ruh also complement the relaxed feeling of the cover. We expect to see big things from Leah in the near future, as she is putting together a demo of original songs and also working on new tracks with various DJs and producers such as Afrojack, Shelco Garcia and Teenwolf, and some other hard-hitters in the EDM and pop world. Follow Leah for more music and updates coming soon.

Chill, Indie, Pop | Under Great Lights – This Must Be Love

Posted by on May 18, 2014

In a world bogged-down by overbearing production and manufactured radio hits, it seems as if I’m always gasping for a breathe of fresh air. Lucky for me, and for you, today my lungs (ears) were filled with the soundings of Nashville band, Under Great Lights.

The group has been recording music for several years, and have just recently decided to take to the masses with their playful, and upbeat sound. Featuring smooth male vocals and reggae-infused guitar riffs, the quotable and lighthearted lyrics are icing on the cake. Kick off your summer playlist the right way with “This Must Be Love”, and enjoy plenty more that is to come.
