Florence and the Machine – did that really just happen?!

13 Oct

I mean really, was I really this fortunate??  Well if it wasn’t my lucky day, I don’t know what is.  I have posted about Florence a few times (here and here) where I shared who two new released single off of the new album, Ceremonials.  The rest was a mystery to me until this past Monday morning when Florence decided to perform some of her new unreleased album for a small group of people which I just so happened to be in thankfully because of my job.  The set up was a harp, an acoustic guitar and her.  That’s it.  It was one of the most beautiful arrangements I’ve ever heard.  The set also now has me jone-sing for the full album.  I believe it’s going to blow the last album so far out of the water no one will even remember “Dog Days.”   Here’s a few photos from the session.

It was a very dark set but her voice gave me goose bumps the entire time.  Her voice is flawless.

The album is being released on October 31st in the UK.  I’ll be anxiously waiting 🙂

Interesting visitors in the building

21 Sep

This has been quite the week of famous musicians and actors/actresses visiting my work building which always makes the day much more exciting.  One that I was surprised with was Jay Sean.  I wasn’t sure what to really expect but was pleasantly surprised with his visit.  He allowed our station to invite a bunch of his biggest fans and he serenaded them!  Just like this:

He really had a huge following and he sang to each and every one of his adoring fans looking them all in the eye and acknowledging them.  I’ve seen quite a few performances now from different artists and they all don’t have the confidence to command the stage like he did.  He also had a terrific voice!  After he sang three of his biggest songs, he took pictures with everyone and then had to move on out for JoJo to come in for her performance.  Yeah.. remember her?!?!  Pretty great.

Jay Sean, me and Chelsea

We also had the Footloose stars here this morning, Julianne Hough (also from Dancing with the Stars) and Kenny Wormald talking with our morning show – Fernando and Greg.

They were perfectly groomed and manicured for being so early this morning.  After they interviewed with Fernando and Greg, they are headed off on a world-wind of a press extravaganza at all the other media outlets in SF.

Other celebs in the building this week included: Seth Rogan and Jonah Hill.  It’s been a busy week here around work, you just never know who will be stopping in…
