NEW VIDEO: Ed Sheeran – Eraser (SBTV)

For those that don’t know, I discovered the legend that is Ed Sheeran from SB.TV 7 years ago from their A64 sessions. With the 10 year reunion of their amazing website being today, they bring it back to artists that started it all. We have Ed Sheeran giving us a little F64 of a track from his newest album Divide, “Eraser”.

After the jump, I included the video that started it all for me. I highly recommend you check it out!

JUST LISTEN: MiC LOWRY – Oh Lord (Acoustic)

We first introduced you to MiC LOWRY in our Artist Spotlight series, and with their smash, “Oh Lord” dropping a few months back, they have given us a reason to love them even more.

I was hooked from their many acoustic covers on YouTube, and so this acoustic version of their song “Oh Lord” is absolutely everything. There really isn’t much else to say, but just listen to he vocals do all the work.


NEW MUSIC: Ariana Grande – Be Alright


Ariana first premiered this track on SNL last week, and the internet fell in love. Ariana’s first attempt, “Dangerous Women” was a smash in my books. If you haven’t seen her singing acoustically in a strange bunny mask, I highly suggest you do because it will give you more confidence in her amazing vocal ability.

“Be Alright” is equally as amazing, she took it somewhere else with production. She kept her safe upbeat, radio friendly sound but that production is what takes it to another level. It is almost Jamie XX sounding at points, and definitely giving this radio pop a much needed change up.

I’m impressed with everything Ariana has done this era, and I have to say while I wasn’t a huge fan of her vocals before, she has definitely matured.

Take a listen below!

NEW MUSIC: MNEK – Ready For Your Love (Gorgan City Cover)

I have been a huge fan of MNEK for a while now, and with the release of his new Gorgan City cover, ‘Ready For Your Love’, my fascination grows even more. MNEK sounds excellent and as soulful as ever. He previously featured on the original track, but now takes the reigns and adds a very soulful and sexy twist to the track, which in my brain is better than the original, which is saying quite a bit because the original is a definitely smash. Anyway take a listen, and if this doesn’t sell you on MNEK, I’m not sure what will

ACOUSTIC: Jody Brock – Another Dance

Thanks to the amazing videos from SB.TV, I have found new talent gold also known as Jody Brock. As soon as he sang his first notes, I had to find out everything possible about him. He is pretty fresh on the music scene so he doesn’t have many tracks out yet, just a couple of amazing youtube covers and this video is all I could find for now. I expect that to change in the future for sure, this guy has so much talent, he makes it look so easy.

Everyone should keep an eye out for this guy, I seriously hope his talent crosses over to us the in the states, because I’m already to hear him on the radio.

Long Live Music supports Jody Brock!

NEW VIDEO: Daley covers ‘Climax’

Every time I hear Daley sing, it makes me crave that debut album even more each time. Now he has put his own flavor on one of the best usher songs in the past 5 years, ‘Climax’ for SB.TV. There isn’t much else to do but tell you to watch it, and if you haven’t got his mixtape yet, something is obviously wrong with your ears. download it here!

ACOUSTIC VIDEO: Vince Kidd- The Last Train


I really can’t stress how good this guy is! I recently featured him in one of my Artist Spotlight posts, and he just dropped another acoustic video for a track titled ‘The Last Train’, paying a fitting soulful tribute to the late legend Etta James. I’m not sure where the track is from, I’m guessing from his upcoming album, but either way it doesn’t matter because it’s AMAZING!

If you don’t know him, get yourself educated because he is going far! Watch out for this guy this year!

NEW VIDEO: Emeli Sandé Acoustic

The EXTREMELY talented soul singer from London, Emeli Sandé has done another SBTV A64 mixup of two of her tracks off her much anticipated album which is due out this year. For those that don’t know her, she broke out on the UK music scene with her track ‘Heaven‘, then kept the momentum going with one of my favorite tracks ‘Daddy‘,  and ‘Next To Me‘. There isn’t much left to say about her, just listen and enjoy.
