Charley says SONG! Eva Jacobs – If I Ain’t Got You

April 26, 2012

If you’ve read my post on what is next for the The Voice Van Vlaanderen contestants then you knew Eva Jacobs had something up her sleeve for us!

Eva was one of the early favourites in the competition, but was surprisingly eliminated in the Battle Rounds. With a Wouter Van Belle produced album already recorded, she wasn’t going to let the momentum fade, though. After getting back into the studio to tweak some last bits and pieces she is ready to release her eponymous album on May 18th. I’m assuming Eva’s debut will include some of the tracks she has up on her official website and YouTube channel, as well as her Bent Van Looy penned, pre-The Voice single “Shine“.

To really kickstart this campaign the soulful singer/songwriter has gone back to the moment Belgium first fell in love with her, her impressive rendition of Alicia Keys’ ‘If I Ain’t Got You’. It got all four chairs turning when she auditioned for The Voice and has been a fan favourite since, so she’s recorded a studio version to be released as her brand new single.

“If I Ain’t Got You” by Eva Jacobs is available on Spotify and iTunes from April 27th.

Charley says SONG! Yannick Bovy – She’s Even More Beautiful

August 10, 2011

As in previous years, the instore sound system at my summer job is doing a terrific job. While this year’s theme seems to be Beyoncé singles from the ‘4’ era and the odd Spice Girls ballad, one of my favourite musical moments was the reintroduction of Yannick Bovy.

Some time ago I posted how Yannick, who in 2007 recorded ‘Better World Without You‘ with Milk Inc.’s Regi Penxten, was trying to find the right people to help him become a Belgian Bublé. A year later, he’s finally completed that mission.

The demo he’d been working on with songwriters Michael Garvin and Patrick Hamilton got him signed to Universal. The finished result is ‘She’s Even More Beautiful‘, the gorgeous track that’s been making waves at radio stations and, well, my summer job’s instore playlist.

Unfortunately I can only offer you this live rendition radio station JOEfm put up online. However, considering Yannick’s great vocal performance, it might as well have been the studio version.
