jp - All This Time     World, Jazz, Pop, Funk 10/02/2017
Drummer/percussionist turned singer/eclectic songwriter, jp combines all his worldly influences into a platter of catchy songs that you can dance, sing-a-long, make love and break up to.

It's a poppy song about your everyday modern relationship, but there are some extra paranoia-peppers hiding in-between the lines as we get to witness some classic miscommunication and its fallout.

Anna Salleh - Noites Cariocas     World, Jazz, Acoustic 02/11/2016
From honey-smooth bossa nova and ballads, and irrepressible samba, to playful swing, cool jazz and enchanting choro, singer/guitarist Anna Salleh channels songs of beauty, sorrow, irreverence and joy.
Noites Cariocas (pronounced 'noichez kah-ree-oh-cahs') means 'Rio Nights' and is in the choro style. This form of music from Rio de Janeiro was originally instrumental but this song is set to almost untranslatable Portuguese lyrics that touch on themes of sleepless nights from a vexed relationship. Call it 'Brazilian vocalese'!
