Katy Perry: A Rebranded Success....

I kissed a girl, and I liked it. Well, heck, "who wouldn't" I thought,  when I heard this song sometime back in 2008. But what threw me was the voice. Is this the voice of some new boy band that's being pushed down the airplay throat of the syndicated pop stations? It certainly sounds like a girl though. Then again, most of that boy band stuff did anyways. But a girl singing this on mainstream radio?......

Well, by now you have to know that it wasn't a boy band after all, and that it was a vivacious, curvaceous, flirty, and bodacious former Gospel music singer on her way to pop stardom. Yes, Katy Perry was, indeed, on her way. "I Kissed A Girl" propelled her to  the top of the Billboard 100, but it was the similarly scandalous "Ur So Gay", before 'Girl" that made some people take notice. And with reason. If you listen to her early stuff carefully, (Lyrically, I mean), you'll see that there's nothing taboo and often she speaks of such. Lesbian trysts,  rough Las Vegas mornings, 'under the table' shenanigans, bragging she 'aint cheap,  and just about anything else one would do to gain attention as a wanna be artist.
     Perry's second album, "Teenage Dreams" spurned five consecutive number one singles, but the vulgar themes persisted and most still seemed just as trashy as her first record, but boy, did she make it sound like fun. That was her hook: Make all her hooks fun while  raising a few eyebrows along the way. And oh yeah, let's shows lots of cleavage!
    As Perry's career progressed, it has appeared that the sophomoric bawdiness has waned a bit , as evidenced by the tones of her "Prism" album, electing to perhaps prove she can be a serious artist after all. If that's what she's really after. I'm not yet convinced that she can sustain such status, but after hearing and watching the "Chained To The Rhythm" song and video, (A track from her soon to be released album, 'Witness') it solidifies what I'm thinking; Katy's planning for longevity in the business.
  From Christian gospel singer, to eyebrow raising, campy, hook oriented pop-princess, to perhaps a more demure, mature  Katy Perry, (we have yet to see), I'm thinking she can kiss anybody she wants to, anytime she wants to. And like it....

Ed Sheeran Is The Real Deal....

   
   Alright, full disclosure here. The more I listen to this guy, the more I like him. When touring with Taylor Swift during her massive 2013 tour in the States, I personally thought this backup. or warmup act if you will, wouldn't flourish beyond that tour without the help of the headlining megastar pulling for him. I just didn't know his story.  Obviously the tour helped bring him some prominence in the mainstream, but know this; He was destined anyways. Gaining attention for his You Tube works, he self released three EPs . His fan base grew, and soon caught the attention of notables as The Independent newspaper, Jamie Fox, and Elton John.
            After signing with Asylum Records, his debut album,   +   (read as "plus"), was released on 9 September 2011 and contained the song "The A Team". Sheeran was on his way. His second album, X (read as multiply) and his recently released third album (Divide), are big chart toppers .
I started to go back into his earlier works, read up on his story,  and I admit, I was pleasantly surprised. His style is a blended sort of acoustic pop, beatbox,  hip hop, folk and some mishmash of romantic ballads. Some of the stuff that I've never been keen on, but I do enjoy watching his live videos and listen to his voice intonations. I think he's a confident, charismatic and generally grateful bloke who loves what he does. And that's enough for me to see him live. You might want to as well.

"Well, we were just another band out of Boston,
On the road to try to make ends meet.
Playin' all the bars, sleepin' in our cars
And we practiced right on out in the street........." Yeah, you know it. Who doesn't? I guarantee that in another half hour or so, you'll still be humming it in your head.
 One of the most popular and best selling bands from the Boston area,( imagine that), Boston released their self titled debut album 40 years ago, and whether you're a 70 year old who grew up on AM radio, or just a teenager who only listens to one of the dozens of subscription music services, you'll recognize the multiple lead and blended harmonies emanating from Tom Sholz' guitar from that epic album. This album still gets considerable air time, 25 million album sales later. Boston has released six studio albums and has had various lineup changes through the years. Lead singer Brad Delp had taken his own life in 2007 and was instrumental in helping create Boston's signature sound. But make no mistake. Tom Scholz' innovative guitar work and studio mastery is what made really makes Boston stand out.
       Boston late last year announced a tour for 2017 and just recently announced it has added 21 more dates to it's 2017 Hyper Space Tour. Also announced, Joan Jett and The Blackhearts will be joining the band on selected dates. Main Entrance Tickets now has Boston tickets in stock for all of Boston's shows for this tour. Please see link for dates and venues....
