Life With Livvi Franc
Singer/songwriter Livvi Franc is that chick. She has jet setted to the UK and been a top shot in LA - but strip her of the spotlight and you’ll see a Bajan fuh real. Here the Queen’s College alum shares the story behind 'What Now', insights into the best parts of being a Bajan, her favourite Bajanism and the real way to tell which corncurls are the cheesiest.
Sweet & Smooth Honey Jazz
Barbadian lovers of jazz were treated to the smooth, bluesy performances of Honey Jam alums at the Honey Jazz... Ladies Sing the Blues event last Sunday in the Frank Collymore Hall. Kellie Cadogan was the featured artiste and show-stopper of the night, blending subtle Caribbean influences with her original music that was peppered with scat. My personal favourite from Cadogan was a kaiso-jazz song, written by Roger Gittens.
Adaeze: The DaeDreamer
Adaeze has an energizing sound that is all the way hype and all the way reflective. She’s an intellect who attended Harrison College, a United World College in Norway and The University of Florida.
Fresh off of an impressive performance at Honey Jazz, her acoustic jam on BalconyTV for the song 'Daedream' put her at one of the highest watched videos in the Barbados series. She is the new generation of musicians whose words are weapons and whose songs will make you stand up and take note.
BalconyTV: Music With A View
BalconyTV Barbados is on a high. The local franchise for a global web series that focuses the spotlight on indie artists, BalconyTV has also specially featured major names like Foxes, Mumford and Sons and Ed Sheeran. The Barbados channel was started in October, with demo videos shot in early October 2013 and submitted to the global brand for approval.
BalconyTV Barbados was welcomed to the international family with the debut episode released on October 24th, and the rest is history.
