Persian talent we don't know (but probably should)

Laleh (Wikipedia link) is a Persian Swedish singer/songwriter/producer/engineer and jack of all trades, she writes and produces and engineers all her songs herself and you can tell she is extremely talented once you listen to 30 seconds of her number one hit, which hit Sweden's charts last year and made her a household name there (and a few other places in Scandinavia)

her new album Colors is available in Europe but not in iTunes U.S. yet

Enjoy

Stine Grove latest

One of my favorite singers with her new single, working again with Headstrong (Don Jackson) the two have had a great working relationship for a while now and they never cease to produce amazing songs

It Helps that Stine (read steenee) has a fantastic voice, probably one of the best in the Genre

Enjoy

Sharon and Tarja

two of the greatest voices of rock join forces to deliver a great song, the message is a bit much, nuclear devastation and the quick recovery, but hey artistic liberties and such, enjoy

Loreen - My Heart Is Refusing Me

Last years Eurovision winner (and my favorite) is back with a new (old) song, or rather a new take on an old song, this was Loreen's entry to the Sweden Eurovision contest which got her second place in 2011 and never made it to the main show, but this is probably my favorite song of hers (although i'm listening to her 2013 album now and may change my mind)

as always Loreen has great visuals to carry her song as well, so enjoy

I'm voting Spain for Eurovision 2013



This year i am biased for Eurovision, for the first time a band that i've been a fan and know quite well is representing Spain.

I have been a fan of El Sueño de Morfeo for a few years now, since 2006 or so when they did a duet with Nek (the Italian singer) they strike a balanced blend of Pop Rock and Celtic, just enough not to overpower either genre

this is the song selected for Eurovision (voted by fans)



Wishing them the best
