ZEE AVI's debut album released a few days ago with a lot of buzz. My latest issue of Elle raved about her voice but not until she showed up on my most reliable music source KCRW did I really take notice. Watch or listen to her live performance and interview on KCRW's Morning Becomes Eclectic here. She will also be performing at the Bonaroo Music and Arts Festival in Manchester, TN on June 13.
The song for today Bitter Heart is from her debut album.

A bonus song for today is Petra Haden's acapella cover of Journey's Don't Stop Believin'. I found this through music curator Chris Douridas who has a great show on KCRW. On his latest show, he described that the new Fox show Glee covers the song with some similarity to Petra Haden's version recorded 2 years ago but found out she was not involved with the show's version.
In a related music topic, KCRW has also introduced the music world to an acapella group called Sonos that cover great indie songs such as Radiohead's Everything in its Right Place and Imogen Heap's Hide and Seek. Watch or listen to their live performance and interview with Chris Douridas here. Worth checking out.

The only connection is that it's worth listening to, which is also the rule I apply to my ear treasures playlist. Chris is also a music consultant to movies and i-tunes and has even taken the time to recommend some great music for a couple of fashion shows I helped coordinate. Chris, if you ever retire, I'll gladly take your job.
