From Frou Frou to 2009. What a great career. I remember sitting in my manager's office at Fedex back in 2002 when I first heard of Frou Frou. I was instantly intrigued. This woman's voice and sound was so different. It almost reminded me of Annie Lenox but with a millennium twist. After a run as Frou Frou, Imogen Heap came out as a solo act and just killed it. The electronic genre of iTunes was ruled by this woman for weeks. Imogen Heap is pure talent and an artist to be dealt with. So far with the tracks that I have heard, I highly recommend
" Canvas" - Great lyrics and beats; something worth listening to while drawing or being creative. Very inspiring.
"Aha!" - Great beats; reminds me of an opera
"2-1" - Classic Imogen; if you loved any of her previous works, this one takes you back. It is almost like a sequel/or a missed hidden track they added to this album from the last album. Great song.
"Earth" - Great intro and smooth lyrics. Yet again, classic Imogen.
Again, a great artist. If you love great music, you have to have this.

Today I want to pay homage to a wonderful photographer I found on www.modelmayhem.com. I really like his style and the level of creativity he brings to the camera. I'm putting this posting up because this is direction I want to take my work in. These pieces are so timeless!!! This could have been shot tens years ago and the observer would never had known it. This is top notch hardback book material.
I just love the lighting, poses, makeup and hair in all of these pieces. This is what the craft is all about. Even the simple graphic layouts are genius. Less is for sure more in this case. The model's poses speak elegance and class. The clothing execute thought, style and high fashion at its best. I have become a great fan of his work and look forward to taking my work to that next level.

The wait is finally over!!!! This guys have an amazing unique sound. I remember the first time a co-worker of mine introduced me to their music, I was instantly hooked. Ever sense, whatever new piece of music they released, I had to have. From the 2007 Transformers movie theme to the Twilight soundtrack, it just made me that much more ready for the new album.
While they were on tour last year they came to Memphis, TN but I missed them because I couldn't go to the show because I had just found about it that morning. So I know I missed a great performance. Anyway, its round two and I'm ready for the glorious unspoken sound that is Mute Math. LET'S GO!!!!
