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!

More from Shauna Brittenham

MusicLoad presents Shauna Brittenham

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!

Steely Dan - Songs from Countdown to Ecstasy

MusicLoad presents Steely Dan and songs from Countdown to Ecstasy
Steely Dan album cover for Countdown to Ecstasy
In 1973 when the songs below came out and I was a 10 years old, I asked for this record for a birthday or Christmas. My great grandmother, who we actually called Granny, went to the store to buy it and changed her mind. She told my mother that the album cover contained pornography. When I heard that I wasn't getting that record and nobody would tell me what pornography was, I really wanted to have that record even more. I collected enough pop bottles to trade in to buy that record, and became addicted to this obscure form of pornography known as Steely Dan. These songs are are just two of my favorites from the record. In fact I love them all and as a kid I could scat every riff of every song, and still can. The entire record went a long way toward shaping my love for music.

Steely Dan - Bodhisattva

Steely Dan - Your Gold Teeth

SHEL - Stained (Music Video)

MusicLoad.Com presents SHEL and their band Stained

Four fabulously talented sisters named Sarah (violin), Hannah (keyboards and squeezebox), Eva (Mandolin) and Liza (Drums) make up the group known as SHEL. They all write, arrange sing and play with exceptional skill with amazing vocal harmonies that are very real without special effects or auto tuning. Their studio recordings sound much like their un-lipsynced live performances, because these girls are not manufactured or polished by producers. In my opinion, the producers the band has worked with have done little more than press the record button, which is all the band needs. They are organic, pure and real.

The girls grew up in a music family. Their father towed them along to his own gigs when they were all young. They grew up listening to a very diverse selection of music. They have so many influences including rock bands such as Jethro Tull and in this song in particular, there is a little Led Zeppelin influence. Stained reminds me of Led Zep's song titled The Battle of Evermore, which SHEL separately did a nice cover of as well. Enjoy!

SHEL wrote this about their self produced/directed video: "On what felt like the coldest day of winter, we shot this video along the Harpeth River in Franklin, TN. We've been told this trail is part of the original Natchez Trace, which is why the road is worn far below the tree roots. This same area was a camp site during the The Battle of Franklin - the bloodiest battle of Civil War and it's near an ancient Native American village now called "Old Town" that dates back to the year that's some history!"

David Crosby to release "Croz"

MusicLoad.Com presents David Crosby "Croz"

MusicLoad is generally focused on the great unknown artists, bands and songwriters who are way to far under the radar. But every once in a while there is a great established artist or group that I feel compelled to give a plug to. The legendary David Crosby is one such artist who deserves a big round of applause because he is always willing to use his status and power to say something and speak truth to power. He is outspoken politically and is always willing to get up and take what might at first be an unpopular stand. For that reason alone, David Crosby will always be welcome here.

David Crosby will release "Croz," his first solo album of studio material in 20 years, on January 28. Pre-Order your Copy Today.

Below is a full song featuring Mark Knopfler titled What's Broken from Croz
