It would be just wrong if I didn’t post about my amazing day with Brad yesterday. Today is technically his birthday, but he has to work tonight . So we celebrated yesterday, which was perfect because it was… ROLLING STONES … Continue reading
It’s no secret, I’m a little obsessed with Beyonce. Girl is awesome. What’s not to be obsessed with? So when “The Great Gatsby” Soundtrack came out this week, I was all over it. I had been listening to everything Interscope … Continue reading
I’ve been doing a lot of journal-time lately, really getting back into my songwriting. And my favorite thing about keeping a journal is looking back at some of the wild things you’ve written before. One sentence that I scribbled over … Continue reading
The end of April is hard for me and so many of the people I love. It’s been seven years tomorrow since I lost one of my best friends. It’s hard to say seven years. How could it possibly be … Continue reading
Yesterday, I needed some mellow music. I came across Lykke Li. Perfect. Then the song “I Know Places” came on. I’ll admit, I was first attracted to it because of its very simple chord progressions. I could definitely play that. … Continue reading
As I read on the SF Girl by Bay blog the other day (do you follow her blog? you should. she is amazing.), it seems that with social media we tend to put out this super shiny and polished version of … Continue reading
Just so you know, I am spending the rest of the day on the couch. And not as a lazy couch potato. No, although my couch is incredibly comfortable and will suck you in until you fall asleep and then … Continue reading
I’ve actually had kind of a real weekend lately, and with Brad in between jobs at the moment, we had a little time to catch up with each other. Except for Thursday night, when I decided to go to my … Continue reading
With a name like Kelly, people are always asking me if I’m Irish. I’m sure I have a little Irish in me, but I can assure you Bylsma is not an Irish name. And my mom’s side is mostly German. … Continue reading
I don’t know if you know this yet, but I am working with my guitar-playing friend, Eric, to put together an acoustic set. This girl needs some singing in her life, and it’s about time I got my act together!
Most of our songs are originals. I love to write and it’s just amazing to hear my lyrics and my melodies become a full song. Eric also writes, so we are combining forces to come up with a set of our music that people will love.
I’ve been posting some snippets over on my soundcloud page if you want to check out what we’re up to. Keep in mind it’s not all finished…
But as our list is evolving, we’re realizing that every good set needs a great cover. There is so much amazing music out there that deserves to be performed over and over again, and people love listening to a song they can sing along to.
So in my search for a cover to sing, I’ve found some really mind-blowing covers on YouTube. And I thought I’d piggy-back on my post from the other day about music to put you in a good mood by showing you this amazing cover I came across today.
Tori Kelly, I didn’t know anything about you until today, but now I want to be friends. Or at least listen to every song you’ve ever done. I didn’t think anyone could do JT but JT.
Turns out Tori Kelly can also do a ridiculous JT.
So we continue on our search, now with “Suit & Tie” thrown in the mix. Do you have any suggestions for covers for me? I’d really appreciate the help:)
