Charley says ARTIST! Richy Brown

September 12, 2010

Dutch singer and tv personality Gordon, who was part of the 2009 Dutch Eurovision entry De Toppers, premiered his new project on this week’s Holland’s Got Talent finale.

The group Los Angeles: The Voices is supposed to be a Dutch Il Divo with some Marco Borsato elements thrown in for good measure.

Those of you who watched the live performance of their debut single ‘Blijf Veilig Bij Mij‘ may have noticed a familiar face.

We first met Richy Brown during Dutch X Factor 2007, where Sharon Kips beat him in the finale to be the show’s very first winner.

Each finalist had their own song to release if they won. Sharon’s epic (that “That’s the beauty of GOOODBYYYYEEEEE” line!) ballad ‘Heartbreak Away‘ took the gold, but I’ll always have a soft spot for Richy’s ‘The Way‘. Claymates will remember the song as being previously released by American Idol 2 runner-up Clay Aiken.

After X Factor Richy took a shot at a music career, but hadn’t been heard from since his single ‘Ga Je Mee‘ failed to make an impact on the charts.

Until now that is! Hopefully his spot in Los Angeles: The Voices means we’ll get some more Richy in the future!

Charley says LIST! Now That’s What I Call 2009!

February 22, 2010

A couple of months ago I compiled my very first end of year list ever. What I did was take my 50 most played songs that were released in 2009, pick out my favourites and rearrange them for the perfect flow. I tried to not go for the usual suspects, so that I’d end up with a list that’s very… me.

You may have seen this list before, but I thought it would make for a perfect first post that indicates what you can expect here in the future.

Enjoy!
