Live at Berklee 4

NEWS: Live, intimate performances from 3 Sudacas, The Berklee Indian Ensemble, Aviations, Simon Moullier Quintet, Apoena and Laney Jones and the Lively Spirits

The New Beatmaker is very proud to present the penultimate in a series of videos capturing live, intimate performances from students and alumni of the world famous Berklee College of Music.


In a Christmas bumper special, we have, from top to bottom: Latin jazz courtesy of 3 Sudacas, with their original composition "Tarde de Abril"; The Berklee Indian Ensemble cover A. R. Rahman's 'Jiya Jale" (Dil Se)' in honour of the living legend visiting Berklee; the supercharged metal of 'Concrete Kitten' by Aviations; the jazz of Simon Moullier Quintet's 'Birth'; folk in the shape of Laney Jones and the Lively Spirits; and last but definitely not least, we have 'Wild Bird' from a band that may just defies classification, so you will have to hear them to believe them, Apoena.

The New Beatmaker would like to wish all the artists below and all involved at Berklee a Merry Christmas / happy Holiday season.   Look for more 'Live at Berklee' in the New Year.

About The New Beatmaker

Hi!  I'm Lee.  Welcome to my blog.  Here we talk music: news, reviews, interviews, tips, tutorials and more.  I'm also working on the upcoming podcast Influenced as a guest, writer and researcher alongside music aficionado Mark Williams and friends.  Watch this space!

Georgel ‘Colibrí’

REVIEW: 'Colibrí' highlights Georgel’s potential as a superstar in the making

It is always an honour and a pleasure to receive new music to check out and review; especially when it's as enjoyable a listening experience as Georgel’s ‘Colibri’.


A slice of swaggering, sensual, big band pop, ‘Colibri’ is a superb offering from the singer songwriter. 
‘Colibrí’ immediately demands listener attention thanks to punchy horn stabs, satisfying drum fills and Georgel’s strong vocals.  Listener attention is maintained throughout due to the athletic and theatrical flair of both vocals and instrumentation. These theatrics never descend into ham or kitsch.

The hook is slinky and sensual, adding an extra layer to an already super-enjoyable cut. The memorable arrangement and vocals, together with professional mixing and mastering mean the song would be as much at home in a big-budget Hollywood musical or Broadway show as it would be on your favourite music streaming service.

Forthcoming 'Influenced' Podcast

NEWS: I'm contributing to a new podcast exploring creative connections between legendary and emerging artists

Good news alert!

I’ve got the great honour and pleasure to be working on a forthcoming music podcast.

The podcast, called ‘Influenced’, will trace the path of new artists back to those which came before and reflect on how previous generations of music influenced those which followed their lead, be it directly or indirectly. 

Playlists on Spotify and Apple Music will take the listener through our musical time travel in a mixtape fashion.

‘Influenced’ is the brainchild of a great friend of mine, Mark Williams. Mark is even more of a music enthusiast than me and his personality, charisma, enthusiasm and love for music is apparent to anyone who knows him, I’m sure.
