Live ORIGINAL music is alive in Second life daily!

This is my favorite aspect of Second life, going to hear live music in a virtual world.

Such a great way to hear so many talented people. Musicians often have studios in their homes and will stream their practice sessions or shows into Sl.

What a wonderful way to get your original music globally played.

People from all over the globe log into Second life to catch shows all day long.

I really enjoy unwinding after work with a live performance escaping into the creativity of many musicians.

Winston Ackland isn’t new to the music scene playing for over 20 years.

His musical career bridged Sl and Rl when his cover of  “Lithium” was used in The 20th century Fox film “Marley and Me” and again when Winston’s cover of “Psycho Killer” was used in Oliver Stone’s “Savages”

Winston’s Newest project is a collaboration between friends called Wonderland Diner.

Suzen Juel Resistance in SL

@ White Chapel Londen LEA

Singer, Songwriter, Musician, Artist

Totally wild Suzen Juel!

 Suzen grew up with a family of French Musicians Artists and Writers, no wonder she was playing guitar by 13 and expanding. Suzen’s first CD came out in 1989. She began performing in Second Life in 2005 with her 6 string guitar. Being one of the first Indie artists to perform in second life she has seen the music scene grow

While expressing her artistic side and emotions through her music, words and art it emerges as a tapestry of color and sound.

Suzen’s musical style is powerful, bold, sensual, earthy and wild!

Suzen Juel aka Juel Resistance also shares her Art in second life.

She did a LEA build in 2016 I got the chance to ask her a few questions in this blog post.

  • “Suzen you are obviously passionate about your music and Art.
  • What would you say is your main motivator to create?

“My main motivator to create is a push of thought that is so powerful it can’t be ignored. The logical reason however is…(like Dylan once said, I don’t like the songs I hear so I wrote my own)….I don’t like a lot of things I see around me….blank walls, silent rooms, no color….So I wanted to create things that make my eyes happy, songs that make someone…somewhere…feel what I’m feeling. We all express what is inside of us in different ways. Some people are vocally expressive, others express through fixing things, or creating lavish meals, or simply cleaning a space around them…..it all has a purpose. I become overwhelmed with an emotion of sorts and it comes out through color or sound.”

POL ARIDA

Critically acclaimed RL songwriter.

He is mad, bad, thumping, screaming & without a doubt one of the most original & talented artists playing second life.

From Scotland, this highly original musician has a stage presence to widen the eyes…and that’s not even his excellent songs, which have words to make you think & cry.

Pol is a songwriting genius his music touches deep making you think and feel!

YES Live Blindboy Gumbo

http://www.leegibsonmusic.org

YES!

Blindboy Gumbo is back!

Wednesday March 15th live @ Commune Utopia 11am

Your ride to the show click here.

Northern Englishman Blindboy Gumbo is a songwriter who blends an urban mix of slide guitar and Rock, with a hint of Alternative Country into an exciting spicy gumbo within an acoustic setting that is both familiar and inviting.

This Geordie knows how to use classic inspirations, to fuel a new generation of tunes to leave you with eargasms.

I Find Blindboy Gumbo to be a totally impressive musician.

Blindboy is an original songwriter, who is very creative and quite a talented and skilled slide guitarist.

He has a huge sense of humor, quite a sexy accent and a incredibly swank fashion style.

These things all combine to make him and his show memorable in every way!

Once you hear and experience Blindboy you will be hooked he shares a glimpse of his soul at every show and it is wild, moody, beautiful and rough! (in my opinion)

This Video Project Scifi is done by Fushia Nightfire

Featuring Blindboy Gumbo’s Everyday Life.

“Any performer capable of bringing soulful melody to a song about an adult toy is one worth listening to, and Blindboy Gumbo’s cheeky sense of humor defines his on-stage presence – along with his gruff and graveled voice and the kick of his slide guitar. All just part of his irresistible Northern UK charm” Willow Caldera

 

Check Blindboy out online or in Second life
