Unfortunately, for students, exam time is here, and it is time for heads down and bums up. And incredibly, I find that in my procrastination, I suddenly have 100 new compositions I want to write, but I need to keep focussed on the work at hand... So, turning my back to my year 7 teachers who warned me not to study with music on, here's my top 7 albums to pop on while I'm studying.
Alicia Keys has been an all-time favourite artist of mine since I was a young-un, and I’ve loved following her progress alongside my own musical endeavours. Her songs are heartfelt, raw and passionate, with this natural feel drawing both from her craftsmanship as a songwriter and a pianist. Hence, her latest release ‘Blended Family’ brought me great excitement, in anticipation for her new album being released November 4th!
