I've spent the last two weeks in the UK at a couple of conferences and just never found the time to blog. Never mind, though, as sometimes there's just too much to do and something has to give.
I have another minor musical find for you, though, much as I had back in March. Then, it was a free iTunes song by a UK phenom called Duffy (whose album is now fully released and available on iTunes.)
This time, while driving around the UK for a couple of weeks listening to the radio, a laid-back R&B song, Sweet About Me, by Gabriella Cilmi (pronounced chill-me) really caught my ear. Now, you have to realize that DJs rarely actually tell you what they play, and even if they do they either mumble it or say it so fast you can't actually make out what they said. So even though I knew I loved the song it took several listenings to glean the artist's name.
Turns out Cilmi is a 16 year-old Australian phenom.
So far no free iTunes single, but I wouldn't be surprised if it shows up there soon. In the meantime, check it out on youtube...
