IN MY CRATEBOX: THE DO



I have recently discovered and fell in love with a band.  They are called 'The Do' and they have managed to seduce my auditory senses beyond comprehension.  Dan Levy, a french composer and producer and Olivia Merilahti, a Finnish/French musician are music magic.  I first stumbled upon a 2010 video of theirs on youtube.  I was hypnotized by the dark and tribal visual along with Merilahti's raw and sultry vocals.




Then I kept digging and found one of their newest songs, 'Miracles' (Back In Time)

The duo blew my socks off and I'm ready for more. Like what you hear? Listen for more 'The Do' HERE.


IT'S OK TO HIT THE PAUSE BUTTON! GRAB A MIMOSA! RELAX PLEASE


So you want to take over the world? You feel invincible, you are ambitious, driven, hungry, a worrier warrior, a dreamer doer , on your best day you'll give Batman or Wonder Woman a run for their money, you are a tenacious creature ready to conquer, but what happens when life kicks your ass and reminds you that you my friend, are also HUMAN!? The correct answer would be, "FIGHT BACK!" But I have come to tell you that fighting back is not always the way! I know that you are a hardcore, mega strong person that refuses to give in, trust me, I am too, however in these past weeks I had a moment of enlightenment and I want to share it with you!

If you keep up with my blog posts or watch my show, "The SamOffThaRecord Experience", than you should know who my pals, "Hero The Band" are.  If you don't, then first of all, shame on you, but no worries catch up with the episodes featuring them HERE  & HERE.

Not only are Hero The Band rockstars, but also curators of Atlanta music events such as Atlanta Rock Of Ages.  These Heroes are also known to kill stages not only at Atlanta concerts but recently in California as well.  It has been quite a privilege to see these guys grow in the manner that they have and it's amazing to be a part of any event that they put together.  It's always an EXPERIENCE!  Yesterday was no exception, Hero The Band struck again!
