Joshua Davis Releases Two New Songs As A Vinyl Single

first_imgSince being a finalist on The Voice, Michigan singer/songwriter Joshua Davis hadn’t had much time for his own music. While he relished the opportunity for national exposure, Davis is now back at doing what he does best; creating. Davis just recently announced the release of a 7″ single with the new song “Always Going To Be Here,” backed by the B-side “Let Me In.”Davis spoke about the process transitioning from contestant to songwriter, saying, “After The Voice, it was such a joy to record again on my own terms. It was a joyful, fluid, organic process and I hope that comes through on the tracks.” He continued, saying “I wanted to release these songs on vinyl because it’s what we listen to at home… Records force us to be more thoughtful about our music. You can’t just hit shuffle and go on cleaning the house, you’ve got to give it its own space… These are love songs. They’re all heart. I wanted the production to be stripped down and allow that to shine through. I’m honored to be able to play and record with some of best musicians and people in the world. They make it easy.”Check out a promotional video made for the release below:last_img read more

Dems blast Trump for saying he’d take foreign intel on political rivals

first_imgDemocrats have been blasting President Trump following an interview with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos, Wednesday night, where he said he would take foreign intel on political rivals.“I think you might want to listen; there isn’t anything wrong with listening,” Trump said. “If somebody called from a country, Norway, ‘We have information on your opponent,’ oh, I think I’d want to hear it.”EXCLUSIVE: Pres. Trump tells @GStephanopoulos he wouldn’t necessarily alert the FBI if approached by foreign figures with information on his 2020 opponent: “It’s not an interference. They have information. I think I’d take it.” https://t.co/yWRxMOaFqW pic.twitter.com/qwLw53s5yc— ABC News (@ABC) June 12, 2019 Trump also argued that these types of interactions shouldn’t be characterized as “interference.”“It’s not an interference; they have information, I think I’d take it,” he said. “If I thought there was something wrong, I’d go maybe to the FBI, if I thought there was something wrong.”Thursday, less than a day later, the President has drawn severe criticism from about fifteen candidates running for the Democratic nomination.In the wake of the Mueller report on Russian interference in the 2016 election, many Democrats alleged that Trump’s statements to ABC News reaffirmed their beliefs that he is unfit to hold office.Some took it a step further by renewing calls for his impeachment.Democratic Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) and Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), and former Texas congressman Beto O’Rourke were among those arguing that Trump’s words were more reason to begin impeachment proceedings.Former vice president Joe Biden along with many other Democrat officials took to Twitter to condemn President Trump for, as Biden put it, “once again welcoming foreign interference in our elections.”Trump has adamantly denied colluding with Russia in the 2016 presidential election.Trump, however, appeared unfazed by the widespread backlash opting not even to respond.Instead of lashing out on Twitter, on Wednesday night, the President took time to watch Fox News and to correct a typo in a tweet sent from the official account of “Cuomo Prime Time.”Trump is is expected to announce his candidacy in the 2020 presidential race on Tuesday in Orlando, Florida.Related content:Trump: FL 2020 campaign launch is ‘hottest’ ticket of all rallieslast_img read more

Love hero worship and then some

first_imgDear SG,I’ve ruined a lot of school property throughout my adolescence. Rickety, withered desks were mercilessly attacked by rusting nibs of fountain pens even as I lovingly carved your initials onto them. Thus, it seemed only natural for me to address you as SG since right now, as I write this letter, I feel like I’ve gone back to being 14!I remember watching the highlights of your knock of 131 at Lords on our old Onida television set in the living room of our modest house in a leafy neighborhood of sleepy Dehradun. I remember the crackling boundary that pierced through the offside to bring up your half-century. I remember the bouncer from Alan Mullally that came off your left shoulder when everybody went up thinking you’d been caught. I remember you chiding yourself for getting bowled by him. I remember your teammates giving you a standing ovation as you walked back to the pavilion after making history. Never before in all my 10 years had I seen anything as ballsy and majestic. You’d caught my imagination. And, my mother had caught me blowing a kiss at you on the TV screen! So much for catching and getting caught! Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’You know, writing this letter to you isn’t easy. There are too many things I want to tell you. Those were the days of Cola wars and cricket crushes. From Ajay Jadeja to Shahid Afridi, from Nasser Hussain to Rahul Dravid, cricketers were discussed hotly in claustrophobic classrooms filled with chalk-dust and chatty children. While my girlfriends dug up their personal details, scrutinized their hairstyles, analyzed their smiles, and rated their physiques, I sat in one corner poring over issues of Sportstar and Sportsworld, looking for any mention of you. In hindsight, it seems a little creepy, but love can be a little creepy, right? Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixWhen I was a little older I remember slapping a friend who had, in the middle of a discussion about the VB series in 2004, dared to raise a finger at you. I was about 18 then. Had he hit me back I’d have probably required reconstructive surgery but, of course, that occurred to me much, MUCH, later! Drama ensued but, what good is a love story without some drama and violence?SG, I loved you when I was 10. I loved you when I was 18. I love you when I’m almost 28. I’ll love you even at 80. I loved you when you blinked rapidly between shots. I loved you when you would squat awkwardly to adjust your crotch guard. I loved you when you ran sluggishly between wickets. I loved you when the umpteenth short ball hit you in the chest and the whole world sniggered. I loved you when you edged yet another delivery pitched outside the off-stump to the slip. Of course, I loved you when you struck those majestic cover drives. I loved you when you danced down the track and lofted the ball & sent it into the stands. I loved you during your Taunton knock of 183. I loved you when you decimated Pakistan in Toronto in 1997. I loved you when you kicked Greg Chappell’s butt. I loved you when you took your shirt off at Lords. Loving you, though, has not been easy. From fighting with Sachin/Dravid fans to boycotting SRK’s films, it’s been a helluva ride- a ride I wouldn’t trade for anything else! Good, bad, ugly, you’re the only man I’ve loved with all my heart, and will continue to for as long as I live. My life is incomplete without you. You’ve taught me to be aggressive, to stand up for myself, to never give up, to better myself every day, to never lose my smile and the twinkle in my eye. Maharaj, you’ve taught me to be the Maharani that I am! You, sir, are the greatest love of my life! Thank you, for letting me love you. Forever yours, MMalini Banerjee is a snotty single child, mountain junkie, playback singer, Austen addict, hopes to soon finish writing her debut novel, and dreams of singing alongside Buddy Guy.last_img read more
