Bo

Just a quick post today, I’ve been sleeping on the job lately.  But I couldn’t resist this awesome song from a beautiful young lady. Which has “hit” written all over it.

Meet Bo Courvoisier, aka Bo who is a young singer / songwriter who hails from Toronto.

Bo says “When I get sad, I go to the desert to dance and cry a little. It’s very therapeutic.” which may explain part of this beautiful video.
She adds “Like most songs on my upcoming album ‘Wasting the Weekend’, the key ingredients to ‘Baby Come Back’ were vodka, Christmas lights, and heart-shaped sunglasses to cover my tears. The video was shot on location in Las Vegas, Nevada and is an homage to the grit and glory of old Vegas.”

You gotta love a girl in a convertible Mustang with an awesome voice. Bo is the girl in that Mustang.  Great song as well.  Enjoy.

Babe Punch

📸 Jessica-Rose Lena

Meet Babe Punch. An alternative rock band from the Nottingham/Derby area in the UK.
They are still in their late teens so they have plenty of energy to burn off.

With their grunge and punk influences, they have been described as having a “venomous and angry sound” and making “a racket that goes way beyond their years”.
Babe Punch are:
Molly Godber (vocals)
Carys Jones (guitarist)
Miles Cooke (guitarist)
Abbie Roberts (bassist)
Adam Fletcher (drummer)

And they certainly live up to the name, when you first hear their sound you will certainly feel the punch. The Babe Punch that it is.

Time to check out the music, enough of the background.

So here it is. Your new favorite band. Hailing from the Midlands, pop-punksters Babe Punch are about to unleash their debut single ‘Control’ this July 7th – a riotous and confident belter of a song from the teenagers, that has already led them on to stages that include the Y Not and Dot To Dot Festivals.

And you are in luck, I have an advance sneak peak chance for you to listen to it. It’s simply amazing.
