推荐:大马新晋爵士乐创作歌手 Mia Palencia

早前在“星巴克”买了一张《Crush On You》合辑,偶尔工作至夜晚,就会 playchilled out 一番,只是想不到因而吸引到“把公司当睡房”的“美术总监”——峻弟弟,成了跟我“交换好歌”的知音之一。

他大概也就此认定我是爵士乐的忠实听众吧?事实上,我并不完全是;我只是偏好听来舒服的音乐,就像我听罢 DuffyAmy Winehouse 的优辑后,特别钟爱《Warwick Avenue》及《Love is a Losing Game》般,始终走不出一个既定的“听乐”框格。

马来西亚年仅22岁的新晋爵士乐创作歌手 Mia Palencia ,是他近期的好推荐,可是我 laptopplayer 却开启不到他“丢”给我的播放档;并且不懂干嘛的,总是忙着 Magazine-ingBlogging ,就始终没完成 download iTune的一个simple click

但昨天,不懂哪根筋又移位,竟然在 GardenBorders 书局打烊前,一鼓作气的买了这一张《Finding My Way》专辑。

毕竟才刚开始接触她的音乐,对她的背景还是一知半解,只是觉得她的歌声有像 Adibah Noor ,同属唱得之人,也同是“肉感”中人 @_@|||;并在搜网间得知,哈林《戒不掉》专辑里的《午夜公路》一曲,及吴尊、林依晨主演的《东方茱丽叶》,其原声带中一曲《逆风》的旋律创作,皆出自她手。

这是一张“少数”达上乘水准的“大量”本土D.I.Y专辑之一,以下附试听 widget ,听罢若喜欢,可以到 MPHBorders书局、Victoria唱片行“买正版”,或线上购买




P.S :
我在她的个人专网,看到以下自撰文字,觉得颇有意思,所以转载分享:

“ I was invited to speak to a congregation of young people about the music business in Malaysia. At first I was at a complete lost at what to tell them - "Stay away. Stay far, far away!" "Don't get into the music business unless you want to be poor"

It's not that I hate the music business. It's just HARD. REALLY HARD. So if you don't really and truly love music, the chances of you succeeding are slimmer than the amount of lettuce they put in McDonalds burgers. I just don't want to encourage people to do something they are not prepared to deal with!

In the end, I decided to tell people that the music label is DEAD ... and how to go about sharing your music DIY: starting up a mailing list, copyrighting your music, using Youtube and Facebook to your advantage. I also told them not to attempt it if they didn't think it was their calling ...... ”

当热爱音乐的他们已经转换了一个分享的平台,我们是否也依循正规的给予足够的欣赏诚意?
