Happy Monday all:) I hope you had a fantastic weekend! Today is Monday, so that means music around here:) So I want to jump right in with my Artists spotlight…so check it and my One Voice Feature, where I give a brief recap of the hit shows the Voice and X-Factor;and I give updates on Team Michelle! So let’s get started
Artist Spotlight (Taken from CD Baby.com)
“We always wanted to produce an album with a good balance between rock and pop music, with catchy melodies and cool guitar riffs. During the past few months we wrote 13 new songs, some ballads and many uptempo numbers and we were looking for the perfect sound, of course. ”
What GEE had in mind was the 80s sound combined with some elements of current music.
They translated their idea very well with their new album “Fame”.
“People often ask us why our new album’s name is Fame. Fame is the title of the first song on the CD. The song describes one of the situations we are very often confronted with on our way through the music business.
Many people, exspecially those of big record companies, don’t believe in new, young bands who play rockmusic. You always get a lot of bad critique. But if you really wanna reach the top, never say die.”If you want to help GEE on their musical way, check out their current album Fame.

OUTCOME THIS WEEK FOR TEAM MICHELLE
Emily Earle vs Mackenzie Bourg: Unfortunately my Emily Earle did not fair well due to Cee Lo states that Mackenzie had more versatility. There was not a steal, so I lost Emily, she has a fantastic voice with strong roots in Country, and I hope she continues to go for her dream.
Liz Davis vs Nicole Johnson: The outcome was that my Liz Davis remained on Team Adam! Both performers were awesome, but due to a small technical detail, which if I was to be honest, even though it worked out in my Team member’s favor, I believe it was simply a technicality, used by Adam in order to make this extremely difficult decision. But again, I am not a singer, so possibly this was a bigger deal..the fact Nicole seemed to lose her breath , a little…while singing…which I am sure with coaching she would be able to overcome? But again, I am not a singer, so it’s just an opinion. I do wish the young Nicole well, and hope that she will continue to strive for her dream!
Dez Duron vs Paulina: They sung Just The Way You Are by Bruno Mars. Dez from Team Christina and Michelle:O) came out the victor in this round. It was felt by Christina and a couple of the other judges, that Dez showed consistency in his voice. Paulina has a wonderfully unique voice, and as Christina had stated in one of the practices, that Paulina, would to be mindful to not “overdo” and put too much of her on free style in the song. That the song was set up, that it had parts that would highlight both performers, uniqueness. It was felt that Dez stayed more steady and true to the song.
So there you have it, except for the two losses of Domo(previous week) and Emily Earle(This week) Team Michelle is holding strong!:O)
