Thank you Yahoo! Live for sponsoring this post on the new live streaming concert series!
A night with Lily Allen.
I’m a sucker for female artists. After working professionally as a musician for the past seven years, I truly admire all the strong women who have made a mark in the industry. I’ve come across some struggles with being a female instrumentalist in an industry dominated by males so I’m naturally drawn to powerful females that embrace everything about being a woman and our natural drive to succeed. Lily Allen is not only an awesome female style icon but an artist who promotes hard-working and successful women. She puts it best…”Forget your balls and grow a pair of tits.” Being on tour myself for part of the year it’s always hard for me to catch shows of my favorite artists that I want to see. Just recently Yahoo! partnered with Live Nation to live stream a concert for free every day of the year! Incredible. I can be in my hotel room on tour and watch a live streamed show for up to 24 hours after the event. Being able to have a 3 am viewing party of my favorite artists after an evening of performing and decompressing at the hotel bar…honesty I don’t know why someone didn’t think of this sooner!
I love the bubbly pop sounds that Lily Allen is known for creating. Her lyrics in this album are so raw and filled with loaded phrases made into catchy hooks. “I won’t be bragging ’bout my cars or talking ’bout my chains, Don’t need to shake my ass for you ’cause I’ve got a brain.”
Mark your calendar for your favorite artists on Yahoo! Live streams! Literally the world’s largest live concert series. A few more favorites to look out for this month: Coheed and Cambria and The Airborne Toxic Event. Happy streaming!
