    Sys Bjerre er tilbage – med alle sine veninder!

    Sys Bjerre har netop haft debut på førstesinglen til sit kommende album, ”Alle Mine Veninder”, i Allstars på TV2.

    Nummeret er blevet sendt til radio i mandags og i næste uge er videoen klar.

    ”Alle Mine Veninder” er blevet til i Svendborg, hvor Sys og kæresten Phillip Halloun sidste år tog til for at slappe af et par måneder. Her fik de skrevet og produceret numrene til den kommende plade, der får release i d. 27. september.

    ”Vi elsker begge to Indien og er meget fascinerede af deres musik, så på demoen gav vi den bare fuld gas med tablas, tambura og sitar. Det var vildt sjovt, men i studiet med Frederik Thaae blev inder-viben skruet lidt ned til fordel for mere decideret weirdness og hårdhed. Han er fantastisk og hans hjerne er ligeså krøllet som min, så sammen er vi et totalt vinderteam, synes jeg. Nu glæder jeg mig bare til sol, sommer og til at lave pladen færdig. Det blir det vildeste jeg nogensinde har lavet”, fortæller Sys om arbejdet med pladen

    Singleforløberen til albummet er det energiske festnummer, ”Alle Mine Veninder”, som nok skal få sat fut i dansegulvene landet over i løbet af sommeren.

    ”Med Alle Mine Veninder ville jeg skrive den slags sang, jeg selv har lyst til at høre når jeg skal drikker champagne og danser med pigerne, og det lykkedes faktisk.
    Jeg blir selv helt glad af at høre den, og mit håb er at den kan sætte lidt gang i festen og at andre også kan komme lidt i 'nu holder vi om hinanden og danser synkron dans stemning, siger Sys, der ikke er alene om at være stor fan af ”Alle Mine Veninder”. Også producer Frederik Thaae, (A Kid Here After, Black City, MicroPop, Peter Sommer, Murder mm.), er vild med nummeret:

    'Alle Mine Veninder er det bedste, sjoveste og mest fuldendte track jeg har produceret. Processen har være legende og Sys har hele vejen igennem motiveret mig til at gå planken ud. Det er en sand fornøjelse at arbejde med en artist, som ikke ligger under for forventningspres oven på en monstersucces, men tværtimod er helt fokuseret på at vise nye veje og udfordre sig selv. Hvis alle popstjerner gjorde som Sys Bjerre ville der ikke være noget der hed indie.'

  • Little Red Suitcase høster i disse dage store roser i USA og Canada

    Little Red Suitcase er i disse dage på en mindre tour i USA og Canada, inden de afslutter på årets Copenhagen Jazz Festival.

    Det er første gang at Elena Setien og Johanna Borchert, tilsammen duoen Little Red Suitcase, er i USA for at præsentere deres musik som Little Red Suitcase.

    Og selvom touren først afslutter d. 24 juni i Canada med optræden på Ottawa Jazz Festival, så er der allerede gået hipster snak i den på den anden side af Atlanten.


    New York jubler over Little Red Suitcase live:
    I hvertfald er All About Jazz i New York helt overvældet over bandets optræden på både Rochester Jazz Festival d. 18 samt deres optræden i New York på Cornelia Street Cafe d. 19 juni.

    Så de gode live anmeldelser er ved at blive skrevet.

    New Yorker jazzbloggen ”JazzWrap” er også begejstret for Little Red Suitcase, der allerede inden duoens optræden gav dem følgende ord med på vejen
    ” Little Red Suitcase may not be for everyone but they deliver something that at least more lyrically and vocally eclectic than most of what's out now for music fans ”

    ”Hippest of the Hip”
    Allerede inden Ottawa Jazz Festival er gået i gang, er Little Red Suitcase ”Critic's Pick” og ”Hippest of the Hip” på Ottawa Jazz Festival. Således lister Ottawa Citizen Little Red Suitcase side om side med hovednavne som Thomasz Stanko Quintet, Bill Frisell, Herbie Hancock m.fl. som jazznavne, der bør opleves på festivalen.

    Så der er al mulig grund til at fange bandet på Copenhagen Jazz Festival 06 juli i Østre Anlæg samt 09 juli på Borups Højskole.

  • Danity Kane WikiPedia Bio

    In 2004, producer Sean "Diddy" Combs returned with Making the Band 3, this time searching for the next female super group.[4] With the help of choreographer Laurie Ann Gibson, vocal trainer Doc Holiday and talent manager Johnny Wright, he set out on a multi-city search and chose twenty young singers out of almost 10,000 young women.[4][5] While seven women remained, Combs became discontent with the level of talent remaining in the competition, and eventually decided not to form a band.[4] He did, however, give a reprieve to three contestants he felt deserved another chance, including then-best friends Aubrey O'Day and Aundrea Fimbres, whose close bond originally formed early in the season.[4] The three contestants became the first to appear in Season 2 of the show.[4]

    Afterwards, Combs once again pressed his team to audition new young women for the group.[4] Finally, twenty young women were chosen and moved into a loft in New York City.[4] Viewers had become invested in O'Day and Fimbres's friendship, naming them "the AUs" and "Aubrea" (portmanteux of their first names put together), as they watched the two compete all over again for positions in the group.[4][6] As the competition's challenges increased, their friendship seemed to become the foundation upon which the group was being built.[4] In addition, O'Day emerged as the show's breakout star.[4][5]


    After weeks of dance and singing lessons, promotional appearances, and a performance in front of 10,000 at a Backstreet Boys concert at Nissan Pavilion in Bristow, VA, eleven contestants remained, including O'Day and Fimbres.[4] The finalists were sent home for three months, told to polish up, and return for the final stretch in November 2005.[4]

    On the second season's finale, on Monday, November 15, 2005, the show's ratings broke MTV records as millions of viewers watched to see the group officially formed.[4] Five of the eleven remaining contestants were chosen: O'Day first, Wanita "D. Woods" Woodgette second, Shannon Bex third, Dawn Angeliqué Richard fourth, and Fimbres last.[4] The final five members of the group in place, the third season of Making the Band 3 tracked the development and struggles of the new band — from then on known as "Danity Kane" (a name taken from a female anime superhero created and drawn by Richard).[7] The group would later be featured on the second and third seasons of Making the Band 4 with new male R&B group Day26, as well as new solo artist Donnie Klang.

  • Pussycat Dolls Biography

    Bios
    Founded by choreographer Robin Antin in 1995, the Pussycat Dolls began as a burlesque dance revue based in Los Angeles, spawned a second revue in Las Vegas, grew into an A-list phenomena with a revolving cast of guest celebrities, and eventually became a recording act with a number one dance hit. It wasn't long after launching its revue that the troupe began attracting actresses and models who wanted to become a Pussycat Doll for a night. Christina Aguilera, Pamela Anderson, Kelly Osbourne, Pink, Britney Spears, Carmen Electra, and Gwen Stefani are just some of the names who donned lingerie and pinup costumes and joined the Dolls for their flirtatious shows. An appearance in the 2003 film Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle was followed by numerous television appearances, most with Carmen Electra.


    Capitalizing on the nationwide attention and the addition of former Eden's Crush member Nicole Scherzinger as lead singer, the single "Don't Cha" with special guest Busta Rhymes appeared at the beginning of 2005 and climbed to number two on the pop chart, number one on the dance chart. With help from the Black Eyed Peas' will.i.am and producer Timbaland, the Pussycat Dolls recorded their full-length debut. The A&M label released PCD, a Top Ten hit, in the summer of 2005. In 2008 member Carmit Bachar left to pursue a solo career while the Interscope label announced that a solo album from Scherzinger was being put on hold after four teaser singles failed to climb the charts. Continuing on as a five-piece, the Dolls released both the single "When I Grow Up" and the album Doll Domination that same year. "When I Grow Up" reached the Top Ten in 16 countries.
