Sheeran and the Beatles? Ed Sheeran is Starring in Danny Boyle’s New Film

by

What if you were the only person who remembered the Beatles? Well, that’s the premise behind Danny Boyle’s upcoming film. The title of the film has yet to be released, but we do know that Ed Sheeran plays himself in the film. This is Sheeran’s largest acting role yet. Previously, he made cameo appearances in Game of Thrones and Bastard Executioner, but never before has Sheeran been needed on set for more than a day. According to Associated Press, Sheeran stated that he “got to actually kind of learn how to act. … With the Game of Thrones thing, that was literally me popping in for a day and making a cameo. Or Bastard Executioner was me popping in for a day. But this was like full days on set, like full 12-hour days.” Although Sheeran hasn’t had much experience behind the camera, he would like to continue to do music-based performances. “I want to make something like [‘Once’]. Something like that where songs dictate the film in a way.”

Ed Sheeran is Starring in Danny Boyle’s New Film Along with Himesh Patel

Richard Curtis’ script follows Himesh Patel, who plays a singer-songwriter discovered by Ed Sheeran. Patel’s character is the only person in the world to remember the famed music of the Beatles. As you can imagine, this inevitably gives him a leg-up in the music world. You may remember Patel from the BBC show EastEnders. But unlike Patel, Sheeran isn’t a seasoned actor. Sheeran admits that making this film was, for him, a “very intense two months.” The pop star explains that the filming took place around his music gigs, so he didn’t have downtime. “I would have four days of gigging and then three days of shooting a film.” If you’re wanting to catch this Beatles-inspired film, keep your eyes out in 2019. Sheeran is currently touring for his 2017 album Divide.

8 Killer Summer Concerts To Get Pumped For

by

Less than two weeks for the start of summer. Yes! Wow, this year is flying by so fast. Some may look at summer as the time to sit back on a reclining beach chair, with a cold one in your hand, feeling the nice breeze. But we’re more concerned with summer as the time to get out and see as many of the best artists around in concert as we can. Here are the 8 concerts that you should be counting down to.

 

Beyoncé and Jay-Z

One of the hottest couples and reigning duo will be performing their Bonnie and Clyde act to 18 shows across America. So get pumped for the “On the Run II” tour, which kicks off on June 25, and runs till Aug. 6. You don’t want to miss the mind-blowing showmanship.

 

Paramore

At one point, this band was thought to be dead. But now they’re making headlines all over the country. This will be the fifth leg of the band’s successful “After Laughter” tour and I am sure it will be a beauty to watch. The band hits the road beginning on June 12 in Saint Augustine, Florida. Buy your tickets now, as tickets will sell out fast.

 

Luke Bryan

Oh my god, get ready, for all the young ladies out there. One of the most handsome men is slated to bring his tour to the states. As he continues his red-hot tour, “What Makes You Country,” at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey on Saturday, June 2. Hooray! Joining Bryan on stage will be some of country’s popular stars like Sam Hunt, Jon Pardi, and Morgan Wallen.

 

Taylor Swift

Alright, as much as I’m feeling the “adrenaline rush,” folks out there should be as well. She’s back! The queen of all music genres and snakes! So guys, are you ecstatic for the “Reputation” stadium tour? The tour is currently underway in the US, but Taylor will also add some international flair to the proceedings with stops in England, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, and Japan.

 

Kesha and Macklemore

Let the adventures and fun begin. The cutest pair are co-headlining “The Adventures of Kesha and Macklemore” tour to support their albums, Rainbow and Gemini. My guess is that this tour will be epic to watch live. The tour kicks off on June 6 in Phoenix and ends on August 5 in Tampa.

 

Bruno Mars

If you’ve been to a wedding in the last few years, you’re probably very acquainted with the music of Bruno Mars. Lucky for you, his “24K Magic World Tour” is coming back to the US after stops in Asia and Europe. He’ll make his return July 25 in Las Vegas and will have dates across the country, ending October 27 in LA. To make things even better, he’ll be accompanied at almost all of the shows by Cardi B!

 

Ed Sheeran

Ahhh…the British singer-songwriter is coming! Back that is, after a long European leg of his “÷ Tour.” This time, things are going to be even bigger, as Sheeran will be performing at large stadiums on this leg versus the smaller arenas he played on the last American leg of the tour. Things kick off on August 18 in Pasadena and run through November 10 in Atlanta.

 

Britney Spears

It might surprise some to see Britney on my list, but how could anyone doubt that she’s going to put on a great show. And who knows what might happen during any of them? Last year, a man rushed on stage at one of her shows and was quickly tackled by security. Let’s hope the excitement this time comes from the show itself. The American leg of her “Piece of Me Tour” starts July 12 in Oxon Hill, Maryland.

Trending Music Mashups of the Year

by

Music Mashups: a form of song that takes two or more relatively known songs, blending them without imperfections. This type of performance is great for easy listening but is also a platform for unheard sounds and newer artists. The most famous of my generation would be “Numb/Encore” with Linkin Park and Jay Z, so famous that for some, you can’t go without hearing the original works and the other song in between. Now that 2017 is coming to a close, here are some of the best trending music mashups of the year.

5 YouTube Covers We Are Loving

by

It takes a person with an ear and a will, showcasing their love for an original song, and putting their spin on it for individuality and sharing. Since the dawn of YouTube, plenty of artists and musicians have gained a new audience; music crawlers. A personal reference for someone who searches the internet for a new spin on their favorite track, be it drums, piano or guitar…or pretty much anything you can think of! In the beginning of 2017, there were appreciations of old and new favorites, and a chance highlighting versions that improved or cleverly reworked the original. Here are a list of YouTube Covers we are loving.

Dana Williams’ cover of “Never Ending,” by Rihanna

ANTI is probably one of the best albums to come out of 2016. Rihanna’s 8th album, saw her delving into new genres and mastering a plethora of sounds, showcasing her improved vocals and continued self-reflection. As the 10th track on ANTI, I was quite surprised to hear what sounds like an old late ‘90s or 2000s folk or indie (see Dido or The Cranberries) and Rihanna’s beautiful voice yearning resolution after a love’s end — there’s a guitar, a few taps and Rihanna’s voice. Nothing else. How does one try to spin this?

Singer Dana Williams went for a more laden strumming, and almost Norah Jones in vocals as she paces the track down to emote a bit more sadness and hesitation in the cover. Anyone can definitely relax (or tear up) alone to this version while a soft rain or snow falls outside.

Amanda Law’s cover of “Use Me,” by Miguel

Kaleidoscope Dream was a great personal introduction to Miguel’s artistry, but for some reason this track got lost over the years — in my ears. After hearing it once again and the wave of dynamic sounds hitting immediately as Miguel gives permission for someone to dominate him in any way they can think of (while the song itself seemingly does the same …).

There aren’t many covers for this track, but my accepted version is by Amanda Law. She definitely captured the soul of the vocals and kept her guitar playing to change the melody to that of an excited and hopeful version from the lustful and yearning it was in the original. If you’re thinking of that special someone, this version is perfect for feeling hopeful; there’d be no chance of rejection!

Hudson Caceres’ cover of “Bambi,” by Jidenna

Jidenna’s The Chief takes a musical journey from an artist exploring his Nigerian roots and creating an identity. A path from life lessons and experiences in growing up and growing musically. There aren’t many covers for this song. The original being a modern take on highlife and modern hip-hop elements, but I came across a very interesting cover.

Hudson Caceres’ version is a very Southern rock vibe — simple, twanging, and thumping. The contrast of this very American sound versus the original’s Western/Native elements was quite enjoyable to listen. The melancholia of the lyrics is hidden away with Caceres’ pacing (especially his lyric blunder toward the middle! Classic YouTube) but the honesty still remains through the emoting in his voice and guitar.

Walk off the Earth‘s cover “Shape of You,” by Ed Sheeran

This song is everywhere — even I couldn’t stop humming the chorus. Of course for a song so popular, the amount of covers to enjoy are plenty (even Rick Astley stepped up). However, only a few stuck out after playing just once. Remember that an instrument can be made by pretty much anything? Walk off the Earth does exactly that with their cover.

Besides the boom walkers, not only did the band make instruments of bowled dried macaroni, those stretchy pull tubes, a Jack in the Box, necklace of forks and shells, and a split kick to two hanging cymbals, they interpolated TLC’s “No Scrubs” and Blackstreet’s “No Diggity.” It’s no surprise their version is easily one of the most viral thus far for Sheeran’s latest hit.

Ericka Guitron‘s cover “That’s What I Like,” by Bruno Mars

A promise to share his absolute best, Bruno Mars’ brassy hit has gotten everyone dancing and feeling themselves. But how do you take something as amazing as the original and make it unique?

For any cover, make sure your voice does the same! With Guitron’s version, she takes a simple approach; dynamic piano chords (matching the original, but sultry slower pace for the chorus), and a voice that you really can’t ignore.
With endless material to cover, and many ways to do it, artists can not only show off their skills, but connect with other fans in their shared appreciation for that special song. Music is meant to be shared and heard, and with the internet, just about anything and anyone, can make its way to our favorite things we love.

‘Divide’ Shows A New Side Of Ed Sheeran

by

The much-anticipated album, Divide by Ed Sheeran, was finally released on March 3, 2017. Divide broke a Spotify record with a crazy number of streams within the first 24 hours. With 12 creatively different songs, Sheeran came back strong with this album. The singer-songwriter just recently announced his north American tour with this album that will start out in Kansas City on June 29, 2017.

The album begins with “Eraser,” a song with a folk feel to it along with a pop undertone. “Eraser” has a bit of an edge to it, making it a mysterious, yet intriguing start to the album.
Then, it  goes into “Castle on the Hill” which was released as a single prior to the album debut and immediately became popular. Reminding us of childhood and easier times. “Castle on the Hill” is an upbeat song that everyone can relate to while singing along.
Sheeran tries a couple of new things throughout this album. “Dive” has a bluesy feel to it, while songs like “Galway Girl” and “Eraser” have a folk vibe with the fiddles strung throughout.
The ballads of this album are where Sheeran shines. “Happier” tells the tale of the girl who moves on and the boy who is lovesick. The lyrics are incredibly passionate and really show where Sheeran excels as a songwriter. Another song, “Perfect” has a fairytale feel to it. The orchestra adds to the magical ambiance to the song.
Toward the end of the album, Sheeran really digs in deep with “Supermarket Flowers,” a ballad saying goodbye to his beloved grandmother — Let’s just say it’s hard not to shed some tears.
Divide isn’t all sadness and heartbreak, there are some fun, upbeat songs like “New Man” and “Shape of You,” even though according to an interview with Glamour Magazine, “Shape of You” almost didn’t make it into the album. Sheeran didn’t feel like the song was his style and it was almost kept off.
In addition to the 12 original songs, there are four bonus tracks on the deluxe version of the album that can be found on Apple Music or Spotify. We can definitely see a new perspective to Ed Sheeran through Divide and its huge success.

Grammys 2016: Highlights and Winners

by

This is the Grammy’s!
There was every reason for Twitter to be on fire last night, as its feed blew up with favorite looks from the red carpet, performances of the night, and the anticipation and excitement for Lady Gaga’s tribute for the late David Bowie at the 58th Grammy Awards in the Staples Center. If you didn’t watch the Grammy’s last night, you seriously missed out. The night did not disappoint by any means as it was filled with hair-rising performances with top artists like Taylor Swift, The Weeknd, and Carrie Underwood and Sam Hunt. Grammy’s Host LL Cool J couldn’t have said it better: “This is the Grammy’s. This is where the people sing for real.” And for real, it was quite the show, but for those of you who missed out, Cliché’s sharing some of our favorite moments, and naturally, the awards of the night with you.

The next round of performances included a mix of Carrie Underwood’s “Heart Beat” and Sam Hunt’s “Take Your Time” which was mighty fine, and we’re not just talking about the two’s singing. Following behind them was The Weeknd whose show was a heart-melting collaboration of “Can’t Feel My Face” and “In The Night,” and then, Andra Day and Ellie Goulding presented a duet with “Rise Up” and “Love Me Like You Do” that was one of the many #micdrop’s of the night.

The third set comprised of John Legend, Demi Lovato, Luke Bryan, Meghan Trainor, and Tyrese Gibson who did a fun and heartfelt tribute dedicated to Lionel Richie, who later joined the artists on stage to sing “All Night Long,” which comprised of songs like “Easy,” “Hello,” “Penny Lover,” “You Are,” and “Brick House.” Little Big Town took the stage afterward with their song “Girl Crush,” which was nominated for “Song of the Year.” Then the talented Pentatonix and Stevie Wonder sang an a capella version of “That’s The Way Of The World” in honor of Maurice White. Might we just add their harmonious tunes were raw, beautiful and just plain perfect – as expected.

Song of the Year: “Thinking Out Loud” Ed Sheeran (As excited as we were for Ed, we can’t help but feel that Taylor was a little more excited – just a little more.)

Midway through the show, The Eagles played “Take It Easy” in honor and farewell to their founder and lead guitarist Glenn Frey; meanwhile, Tori Kelly and James Bay followed after with a mashup of “Hollow” and “Let It Go” that gave us goosebumps on the arms and chills up our spines! Not to mention, they’d make quite the couple, don’t you think? Then Hamilton, a hip-hop Broadway play, made its way to the stage with a dynamite act, and Kendrick Lamar finished with a firing rap and performance – we mean that literally and metaphorically – of “The Blacker the Berry” and “Alright.”

Best Rock Performance: “Don’t Wanna Fight” Alabama Shakes
Adele - Robert Gauthier, Los Angeles Times

One of the few artists that sounds as beautiful live as she does in her records (regardless of some early on technical difficulties), the lovely Adele sang an emotional “All I Ask,” a single from her new album 25. The following act featured Justin Bieber with Skrillex and Diplo of Jack U and left us feeling a little uncomfortable as we watched an awkward acoustic version of “Love Yourself,” and then a futuristic mix of “Where Are U Now” with some dance moves that were interesting, to say the least. (Sorry, Biebs!)

Nearing the end of the night, the long-awaited tribute of the night was well-worth it as Lady Gaga’s collaboration with Intel wowed the audience and viewers at home with its entertaining and well-thought out arrangement of songs like “Changes,” “Rebel Rebel,” “Fashion,” and “Let’s Dance” to name a few. The late David Bowie would have been honored and proud of no questions asked.

Afterwards, Bonnie Raitt and Gary Clark Jr. nailed their performance in honor of B.B. King, and Alabama Shakes’ “Don’t Wanna Fight” created a fierce presence on stage, and we’re not just talking about Brittany Howard’s lips or her awesome white cape. Later, The Hollywood Vampires featuring Alice Cooper, Joe Perry, and Johnny Depp, which we’re curious: were we the only ones that didn’t know about Johnny Depp being in a band?! Last but not least, the youngest nominee, 12-years-old to be exact, Joey Alexander took the stage with an astounding piano performance that made us sit back and contemplate where we might have gone wrong with our lives.

by

At the 2014 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, artists Taylor Swift, Hozier, Ed Sheeran, and Ariana Grande performed. The latter of whom had Sheeran cracking up.
According to E! Online, the “A Team” singer revealed, in an interview with Z100’s Elvis Duran, that pint-sized Grande told him a dirty joke in between their performances at the London fashion show.
Ariana Grande’s Dirty Joke
“Can I tell you why I was laughing?” Sheeran related, “Basically, there were all these big inflatable bouncy black balls that are bouncing around in the crowd on the finale bit. Ariana Grande comes and stands up next to me and just looks at me and goes, ‘I love big black balls.'”
What’s more? Sheeran loves her because of it.
Sheeran added, “In my head I was like, ‘If she knows what that means, then I love her, and if she doesn’t know what that means, it’s even better!”
Who knew that Grande had a raunchy sense of humor? Hilarious!

Ed Sheeran Serenades Teenage Fan Battling Cystic Fibrosis

by

Singer Ed Sheeran serenades teenage fan battling cystic fibrosis. Triona Priestly had been battling cystic fibrosis since childhood and her final wish was to be serenaded by her favorite singer Ed Sheeran. When Triona’s health took a dramatic turn early last week, her family and friends logged on to Twitter and posted tweets directed at Sheeran with the hashtag #SongForTri. By Sunday night the hashtag was trending on Twitter, with thousands of users trying to contact the singer. The Twitter campaign #SongForTri became so popular that Sheeran’s management contacted Priestley’s friend Lucy Hanlon to arrange a call between the girl and her idol.
According to Daily Mail“Ed rang Triona and personally sang “Little Bird” to her as she took her last breaths,” Hanlon wrote on Facebook, “Triona left us listening to her idol surrounded by all the people who loved her. People’s respect is incredible. We would like to thank everyone.” After a long hard fight with her illness, the 15 year old Dublin teen passed away on Sunday in the company of the people who loved her most following the serenade. Shortly after Sheeran heard the news of Triona’s passing, he tweeted: “Rest in peace Triona, so heartbreaking x”.
This story truly touched my heart, and it showed me how amazingly powerful social networking really is. It is good to know that media icons such as Ed Sheeran really care about their fans. R.I.P. Triona Priestley.
