Catself by Aki Roukala 2

If you visited the old blog you will be familiar with the beautiful Catself, and if you were not then the links are at the bottom of this post.

So I figured it was time for a catch up with old friends.

I found out yesterday that the wonderful Catself has just recorded (and released) a terrific new song.
You just need one listen to understand why I am such a fan of Catself.


Music and lyrics by Catself. Recorded live by Catself at the studio of TalentCast Radio in Groningen, The Netherlands.


So I searched around to see what else this young lady has been up to.
And I found this a very evocative piece, you can almost feel yourself hitch hiking in Spain, or California, or even Albania albeit with Charlie Chaplin in tandem.
A wonderful performance with Catself at the Oord Festival 2016, Emmeloord in the Netherlands last month.

Catself featured in November 2011, October 2015 and November 2015. Nice to have got a summer edition this time.

Meet Nuuxs a young lady with a very powerful voice, plus some really hot songwriting skills.
Nuuxs is a French born singer songwriter who grew up in Hackney. Her music style is influenced by Tarantino soundtracks and Lo-Fi beats which are demonstrated in her debut single ‘Holy Man’ released earlier this year. The track, which has received over 66,000 streams on Spotify, was produced and co-written by Jake Gosling (Ed Sheeran, Shawn Mendes, The Libertines, James Bay, Paloma Faith).

June 2016 saw Nuuxs and Jake Gosling collaborating again on ‘The Cry EP’. The title track was released as a single, again attracting a huge response via Spotify

Check out the aforementioned track “Cry”, her latest single, this song will give you pause for thought. The video is very evocative. Just what went on there?

So this is her debut single, I am impressed.
Wow! What a great song, beautifully produced and beautifully sung. What a voice, combine Adele, Duffy, Amy, Lily and Joss and then you are getting close. And this video, very very good. We even get the walking dead in it.

Now it has always been my creed that you can’t believe how great a singer is until you have seen then perform a great song live. So we put it to the test. Nuuxs nails it 500%. This is an awesome version of “Holy Man” performed live.
There is no listing of players or where it was done, just dated January this year. But great backing and great singing.


We’ll finish up with another great track from the EP. Just audio this time but a really sublime piece of pop. This young lady just cannot help becoming a huge star. It’s only a matter of time.
But if there is any justice it will be soon.

Ohh! wait, wait. Stop the presses. Nuuxs has released a new single. And I’m in love all over again. A beautiful, beautiful track.
Beautiful sentiment too. Closing my eyes now.
Love me slower
