Hey, It's Davis Gaines.

Okay, just spreading the word about one of my favorite vocalists/singers/musicians. If you haven't heard Davis Gaines sing then, you haven't lived. His voice is deep, powerful, sensual, and overbearing with vibrato.

The reason I'm posting this is because I can't get his songs out of my head. Plus, according to IMDB he appeared on an episode of Desperate Housewives as an accountant.

If anyone has seen Phantom of the Opera on Broadway or a concert version of Sweeney Todd, there is a chance you've heard him. (He played the Phantom and Anthony Hope respectively).

But in addition to his Broadway career, he has released two solo albums.
Which I find not to be as good as his stage singing. Here are links to his solo stuff, but if you really want to hear Davis Gaines find him singing music of the night (which is also on his solo album) in Phantom of the Opera or Johanna in Sweeney Todd. They really show what he can do.
(Sorry Amazon was the only place I could find samples of his solo album.

And of course for more info.

He sorta sounds like Josh Groban except with a more mature voice. Catch my drift?

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

Summer Playlist - 2022 Edition!

 It's truly the little things in life that make a world of difference. And for me, that means my summer playlist! Behold, I have put together 2022's edition. It includes cuts from artists like: - Mitski - Uffie - Johnny Orlando - Kylie Minogue + Jessie Ware - Florence and the Machine (who put out a fantastic album this year after a long dry spell of kind of "meh" records. Her pairing with Jack Antonoff worked out quite well!)  - Bilal - Harry Styles (he has some catchy music!)  - KATE BUSH DUH - And of course, Lana. It's also available on Apple Music, but since I recognize a lot of folks use Spotify, here's that link. Enjoy!
