Happy Saturday! Spring is mere weeks away! The deep freeze that we have been experiencing will soon be a distant memory.
Nature knows no boundaries when it comes to music, so I hope the summer sounds of This is Lounge has taken you on that journey to the sun. The artists have been helping us cope with the cold with with lots of great new music over the last couple of months - Mirage of Deep, Cantoma, Michael e, Peter Pearson, and Diana Krall and Eliane Elias to name but a few. Your support of their music is truly appreciated. It's an honour promoting their sounds on This is Lounge.
Most of those artists remain in the Top Ten, not only through the support of those of us here at the station, but also from your votes at www.thisislounge.com. Bringing the audience a little closer makes the world feel just a little bit smaller.
Mirage of Deep continues to rule the roost at number one with their beautiful Romantic Fields. Pier-O's Love Jazz comes in a number two, and Peter Pearson's Love Me Once Again slides up to the third position.
New music from Thievery Corporation, Diana Krall, and Eliane Elias infiltrate the chart with electronic, jazz, and Latin sounds, creating a diverse collection for your listening pleasure. Eliane's Dance of Time is released March 24, but we have the first teaser track, Copacabana.
Two new artists to the This is Lounge stable, going by the names of Sunnybeatz Production out of Hong Kong, and Sarah McKenzie, from Australia, bring us some new chillout and vocal jazz to the station from the other side of the world, as their sounds are Bubbling Under.
As always, thank you for tuning in! FYI, it seems our biggest audience is in Germany, Canada, the U.S., France, and Italy. Your listenership is truly appreciated.
And now to the chart....
