Last night I had the opportunity to attend a show at the wonderful Hotel Cafe off of Caheunga and between Selma and Hollywood blvd. It was a galant evening as I waited in traffic on Sunset on my way to the Cafe. My friend Eric has been traveling with Matt Hires as his manager and I've been very excited to see him perform again and this time with a a bassist and drummer. Chatting with friends who I knew would be there, made the evening that much more special and Matt up on the stage singing, whistlin and jammin away. It was wonderful too this time because I have his album and I knew all the songs. It felt good to see him up there, makes me want to really try to do the same thing. It is what I have always wanted to do. Now on itunes, check him out. You may have heard his songs on Grey's Anatomy or Private Practice and he is actively on tour.

When I least expected it I was taken aback by the next artist, Lex Land. I did not know what to expect but when she started singing, I fell in love. With an old school sound and some creative keyboarding and beats, this lvoely songstress, crooned until she could no longer. I could not believe her vocal control. She was Regina-esque but with her own flavor and soft and mellow kept me calm and anxious for more. Very emotional, soulful and fun to watch, lex's bubbly personality shined through her performance. Her cute style encourages me to find my unique personality and show it through my own tunes. Not only is she great but she belted out in confident and soft tunes a lovely French piece. Check her out, buy her music, watch her shows!!
She also has had songs on One Tree Hill, Private Practice and Brothers & Sisters.
