Dom La Nena - Canção Boba

TheIndies.Com is proud to present more from Dom La Nena
Dom La Nena performs to a packed house in Lisbon Portugal
For the last year or so, the cellist/songwriter/singer and touring artist named Dom La Nena has been no stranger on my trail of posts listed at the end of this entry. It has been lovely to follow her international travels where she has been so well received quite literally everywhere. Just read the piece on her that Jim Fusilli at The Wall St. Journal recently wrote about her in the January 9, 2014 Life & Culture section. (click here to read).

She is well deserving of much more exposure in my opinion because her songs are so very beautiful along with the fact that she has really paid her dues in terms of personally honing her craft and original songwriting. She is a real artist not put together by the Hollywood hype machine. She is super organic, unmanufactured and a true artist. Dom La Nena is breath of fresh air.

The two videos below are different takes of the same song, and original by Dom La Nena titled Canção Boba. The first take was shot in the streets of Fez, Morocco. It was shot by Dom La Nena's videographer (her husband, according to the Wall St. Journal) who gets credit only as Jeremiah with support from Mathieu Mastin and Renaud Duguet. Dom La Nena is one of my favorite emerging organic artists making her way around the international scene. Enjoy! - GC

The Inspired Music of Bernhoft

A few years ago, the only Eskimo I think I know, recording artist/producer Kelly Moneymaker, turned me onto Jerle Bernhoft, a.k.a. Bernhoft. Bernhoft has been emerging for years and fine tuning his own brand of soul music in his native country of Norway.

Bernhoft is seriously inspired in terms of songwriting, his very soulful vocals and in terms of his ability to play guitar, bass & piano and create percussion sounds out of thin air while setting up loops with his feet that forms a serious wall of sound. He is the ultimate one man band. Enjoy! - GC

***In these first three recordings below, these are actual live recording and there are no overdubs. seriously for real!)

Bernhoft and his track entitled Cmon Talk.

Next is Bernhoft and his track titled Choices

Next is Berhoft and his unreleased track entitled Since I was a Little Kid

Next video below is a song where he breaks from his usual pattern of being a one man band running loops, being a beatbox and playing multiple guitars all while singing his ass off. In this live performance video, he simply sits down at the piano and sings.

Bernhoft - Stay With Me

And last but not least is Bernhoft with more of a studio track and a real music video to his song titled So Many Faces.

The badass sounds of Unlocking The Truth

Just below is a 33 minute performance of a tasty young independent group found via a New Year's Day tweet on the Twitter page of Cree Summer who is presently the featured artist on MusicTelevision.Com - The group, which has a sound that the hard rock band LivingColour.Com would be proud of, has apparently been getting a lot of major league attention lately. The group was even featured in a advertising campaign for the clothing company Cole Haan.

The group called the performance below their "Farewell Show" in Time Square New York back in June 23, 2013. More from these guys soon! Enjoy! - GC
