The last time I wrote about Cecilia Noël was in 2011. Click here to visit that post and see/hear some excellent handpicked live concert films of Cecilia Noël and The Wild Clams.
Cecilia Noel is looking younger and more vibrant as time has gone on. World travel and dancing with The Wild Clams does wonders! Her band travels and performs far and wide. For quite some time now, Cecilia has made Cuba a regular destination.
Her latest album is appropriately titled HAVANA ROCKS. Havana is where she recorded and filmed the entire project. She gives several pop classics a Cuban funk, jazz, salsa and soul flavor, a la Cecilia. She covers songs by David Bowie, Devo, Men At Work, Thin Lizzy, Van Halen, ACDC and Gary Numan. Below are the videos of Cecilia Noël's renditions to Gary Numan’s “Cars”, ACDC’s “You Shook Me All Night Long" and Devo's song titled "Whip It". Enjoy! GC

MusicLoad first featured the surfer/musician/singer/songwriter Kim Churchill here in October 2012 with his fantastic live take of an original song he wrote titled Tides - (click here to hear/view) -
It's a great pleasure to have been following his travels since that time, as he has worked his way around the globe working non-stop. The cool thing about Churchill is that he knows how to enjoy the perks of world travel, as evidenced on his Facebook page and stream of photos that he shares.
Below is the latest well done live take video installment from Kim that was shot by the the U.K. based Mahogany Session blog. Enjoy! GC

Here is a far out song from a German indie band known as The Guru Guru. The recording was filmed and recorded live with a nice raw garage band edge.

MusicLoad regulars may remember Shauna Brittenham from a few years back. If you've ever had the chance to see in her person, you know how absolutely stunning, kind and understatedly humble she is. She has that intangible elusive "it" quality that you know is special. The fact that she really is special and acts like she is not, shows what great acting potential she has if she ever chose to go down that road.
She just released a video shot live with her band, which is a mashup of two songs: The Black Keys song titled Fever and Sweet Dreams by The Eurythmics. If you get a chance to catch her live, do it! GC

Just below is a tasty full concert film with a great audio recording of Nneka performing at last years Sziget Festival, which since 1993 has been held each August on a island on the Danube in the northern part of Budapest, Hungary.
Nneka is one of the artists out on the international scene who has real deep roots of substance on humanitarian, political and other levels, right on up there with Bob Marley. There is no jive turkeyism in this worthy artist's repertoire. GC
