We’ve hit February! I’m sure January was longer than the entire of 2018? I had a lovely Saturday having brunch at Bao and Bing. It was so cool! It’s this cute little Thai cuisine restaurant just off Baker Street. You pick two buns and then your pieces inside the buns… Bao is like this fluffy, steamed bun and it’s absolutely scrumptious. I had salmon, avocado and vine tomatoes with me and a glass of prosecco or two. They also do this really fun thing where you can pick a number between 1-150 and if your number is called from this bingo box, your meal is free.
With guest appearances by SZA, A$AP Rocky, LunchMoney Lewis, Kendrick Lamar, Future and Julia Michaels, ‘Red Pill Blues’ by Maroon 5 is slick and polished and worth a good few listens. The album is the follow up to 2014s ‘V’, for which the band toured 3 years in support. The album is the first to feature Sam Farrar as a full-time member of the band, although he’s been a touring member since 2012.
Australian singer-songwriter Josh Reck has had a love for music and performing from an early age, learning to play piano from the age of five, and guitar at 7. He became interested in singing when he moved into secondary school, and discovered Michael Jackson, whose music is still his greatest inspiration, while he also cites Justin Timberlake, Maroon 5, and Jason Derulo as influences.
Back in July we introduced you to Carolyn Miller, and the video for her mashup of Taylor Swift’s ‘Wildest Dreams’ and Justin Bieber’s, ‘What Do You Mean’. New Yorker Carolyn collaborated with Mikel James for the song, and we were so impressed we had to find out more. Here’s six quick questions with Carolyn.
We were contacted by Carolyn Miller the other day telling us about the cover she’d made with Mikel James. It’s a beautiful acoustic mashup of Taylor Swift’s song, ‘Wildest Dreams’, sung by Carolyn, and Justin Bieber’s ‘What Do You Mean’ (sung by Mikel), while standing on a New York street. The duo are accompanied by Alex Desalvo on guitar, and Justin Scheidling, on Cajon box drum.
