As tonight is one of my favourite award ceremonies of the year; the Brit Awards, I thought I would round up my favourite artists and bands at the moment. I have grown to love music over the past few years, as it can instantly lift my mood or help me relax. My music taste has become quite diverse; varying between relaxing guitarists like James, to heavier rock bands. I hope you enjoy these artist recommendations and the Brits tonight if you are watching!
After hearing ‘Hold Back The River’ on XFM, I was desperate to listen to James’ other songs, as I just loved everything about the track! After searching him on Spotify, I was surprised to learn that James has not yet released an album, but I absolutely love his EP. After listening to him for a few weeks, I recommended him to a friend and then discovered another friend loved him too, which made me very happy!
I really hope James releases an album soon and I am so pleased that he won the Critic’s Choice Award at the Brits!

Nothing But Thieves
Nothing But Thieves are a fairly new rock band from Southend, England who are due to release their first album this year. I was lucky enough to see this band live (see pictures underneath videos) and I must say they are amazing!
All of their songs are great, but my personal favourite is ‘Lover, Please Stay’ which never fails to give me goose bumps with Conor’s stunning vocals. Also, their newest single, ‘Ban All The Music’ always has me singing at the top of my lungs.
I hope that Nothing But Thieves continue to grow and that I get to see them live again soon!

Nothing But Thieves on Friday 20th February 2015:
Royal Blood are a rock duo from Brighton, England. I only heard this band a few months ago, (again on XFM) and to be honest, I was quite frustrated that I hadn’t heard them before as they are just genius! They have definitely helped me to discover my love for rock music, and my favourites on their album have to be ‘Figure It Out’ and ‘Come on Over’. I really hope that Royal Blood win an award tonight, they truly deserve it!
Since becoming a firm fan of this band, I am desperate to see them live, please bring out some more dates Royal Blood!
