A golden voice

Some people just got it – the capacity to sing as though every song was about them. Or you. It´s funny how a voice can touch you across oceans, borders and experience, but it really can.

I love a lot of music, a lot of singers, a lot of voices, but here are a few favorites – none of them are loud at all, but quite humble and let their voice speak for itself. Some of them are loud. They´re all fantastic.

Adele. Young woman, old soul?

Listen to: Someone like you.

Ella Fitzgerald.

The grand dame who has followed me since I was 14 and learnt of heartbreak from her. She can be giddy, she can be mellow.

Listen to: I can´t give you anything but love.

Sade.

You say 80´s, I say love.

Listen to: The Sweetest Gift

Florence Welch (Florence + the Machine).

Best happy music, best angry music, best get-up-and-get-out music.

Listen to: You´ve got the love.

Joni Mitchell.

Sometimes such a broken voice, which makes it so frekkin´good.

Listen to: Both sides now.

Nina Simone.

The hard voice of the 50´s. Took a tough turn for female voices, made it hers.

Listen to: Feeling good.

The feeling you get when something touches you genuinely. A movie, a picture, a place or a song. I will sort through the dayly buzz and try to find the glimpses of gold that lights a spark in me. All the fantastic things that you sometimes take for granted. Take a look around and lit the spark.
