I have decided to switch from Movie Monday, to Media Monday. After all I want to share my favourite movies, my new favourite TV shows, books I am reading, Magazines (if I find any womens magazines that aren’t “dolly” for women I will let you know) and Music.
Today I am going to start with Music. A few years ago I was the photographer for a big charity event. I loved volunteering to be photog for the nights. I got to meet some amazing people while doing it, it got my name out there and I was helping out a charity. I was just wandering around capturing the atmosphere (and the logos of all the sponsors) when I hear the most amazing voice. She was singing a cover of “Sweet Child of Mine” that made me tear up. I made sure to get the name of the band, and as you do with indie artists (or you did back then), I went to Myspace to check her out. Georgia Fields (and her band the freeways) – a local Melbourne Indie Artist. I wasn’t surprised with a little googling to discover her on the Triple J Unearthed page. I just relate to her songs…you know how sometimes that happens and all of a sudden your an absolute rabbid fan? Well that was me.
At the time she didn’t have an itunes listing but after listening to her songs on Myspace I emailed and purchased her first LP. The cover was a vintage Little Golden book. It was the msot adorable thing ever. Thankfully since then she has released a lot more amazing and beautiful and quirky songs and you can finally buy them on itunes HERE. My favourite song of all though is “Little Vices” … we all have them don’t we?
- Have a listen on her Myspace (and be sure to check out any shows if she is playing)
- Read her BLOG on gratitude and baking
- Buy some of her music (support local artists!) on iTunes
