Song of the Day: Ellie Goulding “Hanging On”

It’s crazy to think it was just two years ago when I first wrote about British songstress Ellie Goulding. Ever since then I’ve been completely captivated by her unique vocals and refreshing sound. Lights is just now making the radio circuit in the US, two years after it’s release, but Ellie is already on to new music and a new album.

Ellie’s follow-up to her critically acclaimed debut is definitely heading in a new direction with her cover of Active Child’s track, Hanging On. “Here’s the beginning of my new journey. Enjoy and share responsibly,” Ellie wrote on her Facebook account Tuesday.

At first I wasn’t 100% sold on Tinie Tempah’s rhyme on the track but I’m loving Ellie’s pain stricken vibe throughout the entire song.  Love it, love Ellie, and I’m definitely ready for some new music!! Keep it coming!

Check it out and let me know what you think in the comments field below.

Ellie Goulding & The Boom Blasters – New Music!

The summer is flying by and I’ve been busy having fun with different types of music and artists. Side note – it is hatch chili season (finally) and I’m definitely due for a food post soon so send me your ideas for hatch recipes so I can get to cooking!

I recently recorded a cover of Guns and Horses from one of my favorite artists, Ellie Goulding. The fabulous Jon C from the band Intake helped me out with his guitar and vocal skills so check it out!

On the opposite end of the music spectrum…I’ve been recording some fun pop tunes with producer and songwriter, Ben C Jones. I love writing and playing my own music, but every once in a while it’s fun to step outside the norm and have a little fun. Sometimes I feel like music is taken a little too seriously, so with that, here is a sample of my electro-pop side (any takers on some alter-ego pop names…let me know). 🙂

iPod on Repeat…My Top 5 Artists

As always, things have been crazy and my absentee food posts only means one thing…I have been 100% entrenched in my music. From writing, to covering, to listening, there are so many good things going on right now. I only wish I could clone my foodie self because I’ve been seriously neglecting my culinary needs.

So in my music haze I’ve been listening to a lot of music and here are a few of my current favorites.

Who are you listening to? Give me some suggestions…I love being introduced to new artists (old or new)!!!
