A few weeks ago, I was able to see Tyrone Wells in concert at City Winery in NYC and, at the same time, was introduced to a new artist. Opening for Tyrone Wells that night was a young, impressive performer named Nick Howard.

Nick Howard is a singer-songwriter from England who currently lives in NYC. He was actually the winner of the German television show called The Voice of Germany in 2012 and is very popular in that area of the world. Nick has an incredibly engaging personality and was a pleasure to watch live on stage with just his guitar. He was charming, playful, self-deprecating, and very talented. I am posting my favorite song from his performance that night. I love this song with the catchy tune and playful sound. I think it will be a hit! The single was released in November 2013 and he has a new album, called Living in Stereo, coming out later this month. I am looking forward to checking out the new album.

A new song by a new discovery for me on this #MusicMonday. Have a great week!

Happy Birthday to my husband today!

I just wanted him to know that I am thinking of him today. He is, of course, traveling on his birthday so it is hard to celebrate with him – so I am shouting out a birthday wish on this post. He had a 4am pickup this morning, which was a special birthday treat. Haha! I guess birthday celebrations are less exciting as we get older.

I have known my husband since he was just turning 15 years old and now he is turning … well, maybe we shouldn’t go there. Let’s just suffice it to say that was a LOOONG time ago! (Haha! Just kidding babe, you’re not that old. Well, actually … at least you are younger than me.) This is a fabulous song and just totally makes me think of him when I hear it. Happy Birthday to my One!

This song is by Tyrone Wells, one of my very favorite singer-songwriters. It is always hard to pick a single song to share by some artists when you like all of their music. I had the pleasure of seeing Tyrone in concert on Wednesday night in NYC at City Winery. What an incredible venue and just an amazing performance! I think you can totally tell a real talent when it is just an artist up on stage with his guitar singing. This tour was called “Closer Than Ever” and he made a point to return to his beginnings by performing at small, intimate venues across the country. It was just an incredible evening!

Tyrone Wells is an amazing storyteller. He tells beautiful stories in his music and he was a great story teller on stage – he was at times hilarious, thoughtful, and poignant. He shared many stories and made a real connection with his audience. His show was sold out on Wednesday night and it sounds like that has been the case around the country. I would definitely see him again and would strongly recommend that if you get a chance to see him, you should take it. I believe there are only four more shows left on this particular tour in the next few days, but if you live in Phoenix, Denver, Minneapolis, or Chicago, you are in luck!

I love this song I am posting today, but you should definitely check out all of his music. A couple favorites that you might enjoy:  “Running Around in My Dreams” (one of my all time favorite songs), “Sink or Swim,” and “Time Of Our Lives” (the perfect graduation song).
