Aussie superstar Taylor Henderson released his new album Burnt Letters last month, it went number one on The Australian Album Aria charts, with his third single Already Gone also doing extremely well. Taylor is currently on his Burnt Letters national tour. I chatted with him about his album, who are some of his music inspirations and the big question how many times did it take him to throw the piece of paper in the bin in his video to Already Gone, you were thinking the same thing right?
Cody Wise, does the name sound familiar? you would of seen him in LMFAO’s video to ‘Party Rock Anthem’ showing off his moves. He has a new song out with Will i am ‘It’s My Birthday’ which is brilliant.
ATTENTION EVERYONE The Ceremonies have released the lyric video to Ballroom Bones and it is just wonderful.
The video has two split screens, the top slide shows footage of the boys rocking out at their live shows as well as artwork, candles and course wine and that is only half of it. The bottom slide is where the lyrics are typed on a typewriter not just any typewriter but a 1942 typewriter which many of us used before computers and laptops..If you don’t know what one is well you will have to watch the video and find out.
Christina Parie does the name sound familiar? and no she didn’t sing ‘Jar of Hearts ‘ that’s American singer Christina Perri.
After her X Factor journey in 2011 and releasing her first single “16 and Unstoppable” Parie is back better than ever with a new project called ‘KYA’ which is her new stage name.
‘What I Live For’ is KYA’s new single and she definitely killed it. The song is eletropop drum and bass and she teamed up with LDN Noise where she wrote the song in England.
The first lyric in the song “Got my sh*t together, now I’m ready set it off” shows a new side of her and how confident she is. When it gets to the chorus it’s very uplifting “Doing what I love, loving what I do anyway” shows how passionate she is about music and the direction she is taking.
With music influences from Charli XCX, Marina and The Diamonds and Lady Gaga, KYA’s fans are definitely in for a treat this year, with a new sound and style.

Australian singer Sia performed on The Ellen Show her new song ‘Chandelier’.
“When she performs, she chooses not to face the camera, but believe me, this is her singing live,” Ellen said, introducing the performance. Even though Sia wasn’t facing the camera it was an incredible performance. It made it very interesting focusing on different aspects of the performance from the dancing, her vocals and the actual meaning of the song.
She recreated the video, with 11 year old Maddie dancing while she was singing along. Her vocals were very powerful and it was definitely an unforgettable performance.
Her new album ’1000 Forms of Fear’ is due to release in the next few months.
