Introduction:


“I used to have a fascination with butterflies. They brought so much color into such a short life. They fluttered about free and brought joy to whosever’s path they crossed. They came from an ugly cocoon, transformed. But that’s the trouble with butterflies. All people think of when they see them is beauty and joy. They don’t see the pain of the transformation or what it takes to emerge from that cocoon. It would be, for most, too”
― Erin Lee

My featured artist this evening is the multi-talented and brilliant Jacob Banks from the Birmingham, England. He is new to me and definitely an original fresh sound that echos an urban earthy blues. His music is typically considered a R&B, Soul, and Hip Hop genre. 

The song selected is titled "Silver Lining". It is the seventh track on his 2015 albumn titled "The Paradox. The song was uploaded on YouTube by Creative Kay and published on Feb 6, 2020

At little about the artists found on their website: http://www.mrjacobbanks.com/content/about
"Born in Nigeria, Jacob Banks moved to Birmingham in England at the age of 13. Not short of talent, the Brit dabbled in all forms of the creative arts and began singing, playing guitar, and writing songs at the age of 20. A music lover first and foremost, Banks got his start at open mic nights and quickly garnered a following for his commanding vocal presence and daringly intimate songwriting. His music features richly textured beats, with its 808s and synth play, African inspired grooves and a soulful disposition that culminates in an unstoppable new sound. Banks debuted with his EP The Monologue, earning feverish acclaim that saw him supporting artists such as Emeli Sandé, Sam Smith and Alicia Keys on tour around the U.K. Now, at work on his Interscope Records debut (the follow-up to self-released EP The Paradox), Banks hopes to reenergize soul music for a new generation hoping to be their solace in hard times and a battery pack on a slow Monday morning..”

I love this song!

"Silver Lining"
I'm a wrecking ball at best
I make house with empty photographs
You are my only souvenir
You are my silver lining
I'm that song that no one ever knows
A big load to deliever, no one's home
You're the reason I am never letting go
You are my silver lining
You are my silver lining
I'm a train about to crash
But you take me as I am
Through it all I know the sun will rise again
You are my silver lining
You are magic, my amazing grace
Full of wonder, please just stay the same
Stay by me, don't you fade away
You are my silver lining
I'm a train about to crash
But you take me as I am
Through it all, I know the sun will rise again
You are my silver lining
Don't think about it too hard (it's you)
Don't think about it too hard (it's true)
Oh my my my
It's gotta be love baby
Yes, it's gotta be love
It's gotta be love baby
Oh it's gotta be
It's gotta be love baby
It's gotta be love
It's gotta be love baby
Oh it's gotta be love
It's gotta be love baby, baby
It's gotta be love
It's gotta be love baby (oh it's gotta be love)
It's gotta be love
Oh it got to be love
It's gotta be love baby
It's gotta be love
It's gotta be love baby
Oh it's gotta be love
You are my,
Silver lining

"We Got Love" #TheTalbottBrothers #love #counts #MusicVideo #DianaMarySharpton #LoveOfMyLife #NeedU @talbottbrothers

Introduction:

“Yet in opinions look not always back,--
Your wake is nothing, mind the coming track; Leave what you've done for what you have to do; Don't be "consistent," but be simply true.”
― Oliver Wendell Holmes Sr.

My featured artists this evening are the multi-talented and brilliant The Talbott Brothers from the great state of Nebraska, USA. They are new to me and definitely a fresh sound that echos folk or even a urban blues sentimentality. Their music is typically considered a rock, and/or folk genre. 

The song selected is titled "We Got Love". It is the first track on their 2017 albumn titled "Gray" The song was uploaded on YouTube by The Talbott Brothers and published on Dec 1, 2016. 

At little about the artists found on their website: https://www.thetalbottbrothers.com/about
"The Talbott Brothers have earned a large and growing following for their songs consisting of down-to-earth messages that prove to be prevalent in today’s world. Originally from Imperial, Nebraska, they now call Portland, Oregon home. Billboard defines their music as “captivating with haunting brotherly harmonies.”

Ghost Talker is the second full-length studio album from the sibling duo. Rolling Stone named their latest single one of the ‘Top 10 Songs to Hear Now,’ defining their music as “cinematic folk-rock for open highways, widescreen skies and the limitless reach of the American Heartland.” Blood harmonies and sibling rivalry are evident in their songwriting with lyrics pulling from the trials of everyday life and the questions we all face. “Everyone has ghosts, whether they talk about them or not. We wanted to take off the mask and be honest with this record, hoping that what we needed to say is what people needed to hear.”

At its core, the album is transformative in nature, prompting the listener to question motives, face realities, and go to war with their own ghosts. Spiritual apprehension and seeking answers are common themes. “Shadowboxing” is a hard look in the mirror, realizing that what you have been fighting all along is your own fear. “It takes one good fight to turn things around.”

Lead single, “Run No More” forces a look at the past while offering a soul shaking guitar solo that feels like a rally cry. “We tried running for a long time but it doesn’t do a heart any good. Sometimes in a wake-up call you realize what’s most important to you. "Run No More" is about when your legs give out and you gotta turn around and fight.”

The Talbott Brothers have performed at 30A Fest, SXSW, The Rock Boat and clubs and theaters across the US and Canada; sharing the stage with ZZ Ward, Johnnyswim and AJR."

This song speaks to my heart, the love in my life, journey difficulties, and finally how truly blessed I am today to be alive writing this post. I highly recommend the album titled "Gray" which was released in 2017.

"We Got Love"
Packed our bags and we headed west
Thought that it might be the best thing for us
But I was thinking about me
All the things that we’d leave behind
Family and a peace of mind
But I got you

I am gonna love you til the stars go out
A shelter up above you til they all fall down
We ain't got a lot but we got love
We ain't got a lot but we got love

 Floating like feathers in heavy like rain
The two of us together can weather any change
That comes our way               
Nothing here really feels like home
Home is who you’re with when you don’t feel alone anymore

I am gonna love you til the stars go out
A shelter up above you til they all fall down
We ain't got a lot but we got love
We ain't got a lot but we got love

Circle Game by #P!nk #MusicVideo #DianaMarySharpton #Blessed #Life #NeedToWorkItOut

Introduction:

“If you're going to try, go all the way. Otherwise, don't even start. This could mean losing girlfriends, wives, relatives and maybe even your mind. It could mean not eating for three or four days. It could mean freezing on a park bench. It could mean jail. It could mean derision. It could mean mockery--isolation. Isolation is the gift. All the others are a test of your endurance, of how much you really want to do it. And, you'll do it, despite rejection and the worst odds. And it will be better than anything else you can imagine. If you're going to try, go all the way. There is no other feeling like that. You will be alone with the gods, and the nights will flame with fire. You will ride life straight to perfect laughter. It's the only good fight there is.”
― Charles Bukowski,

My featured artist this evening is the multi-talented and brilliant Alecia Beth Moore (stage name) ~ P!nk from the great state of Georgia, USA. She is fresh, sensual and a true artist. Her music is typically considered a Pop, rock, R&B and/or folk genre. The song is titled “Circle Game”. It was uploaded on YouTube by P!nk and published on Apr 25, 2019. 

This song speaks to my heart, journey difficulties, and finally how truly blessed I am today to be alive writing this post. I highly recommend the album titled "Hurts 2B Human" which was released on April 26, 2019.

"Circle Game"
P!nk
For all my hard talk, I'm still just a daddy's girl
In this hard shell, there's tiny cracks from a big world
And there's still monsters in my closet and they want to come and play
There's still sounds in the dark, I wish they'd go away
I know, I know, I know, I know, I'm a big girl now
I know, I know, I know, I know, I better work it out
I've got a little girl of my own and she looks at me
Like I'm a badass and you know that I wanna be
And now there's monsters in her closet and they wanna come and play
And I start looking for my dad to come and make 'em go away
I know, I know, I know, I know that it's my job now
I know, I know, I know, I know, I better work it out
In the circle game, no one ever stopped to say
"Soon it's gonna change, it all just goes away
Count your lucky stars that you had a chance to play"
In the circle game, no one ever stops to say
"Soon it's gonna change, it all just goes away
Count your lucky stars that you had a chance to play"
In the circle game
I had a hard day, and I need to find a hiding place
Can you give me just a second to make it through these growing pains?
And I know that it's just life and I must go through things alone
But I'm feeling kinda small, I want his hand to hold
I know, I know, I know, I know, I'm a big girl now
Yeah, I know, I know, I know, I know we all just work it out
In the circle game, no one ever stopped to say
"Soon it's gonna change, it all just goes away
Count your lucky stars that you had a chance to play"
In the circle game, no one ever stopped to say
"Soon it's gonna change, it all just goes away
Count your lucky stars that you had a chance to play"
In the circle game
What is old, can it be new again?
And what goes out, does it come back in?
If we have to say goodbye, can we say hello again?
Oh, where's the book that shows you how to be a big girl now?
Can I fall apart one more time before I work it out?
In the circle game, no one ever stopped to say
"Soon it's gonna change, it all just goes away
Count your lucky stars that you got a chance to play"
In the circle game, no one ever stopped to say
"Soon it's gonna change, it all just goes away
Count your lucky stars that you got a chance to play"
In the circle game
In the circle game
In the circle game
In the circle game
In the circle game
