One eskimO : {a Music Review}

It's my pleasure to introduce to you One eskimO, lead singer-songwriter Kristian Leontiou with band mates Pete Rinaldi {guitar}, Jamie Sefton {bass, horns} and Adam Falkner {drums}.

Currently, 'Kandi' is the #1 adult alternative, most played song on adult radio.  Take a minute (actually four) to check out the video here or their live performance on Ellen to see what the talk is all about.

Fans of Massive Attack, Snow Patrol, Gomez or Damien Rice will find it hard not to tune into to sounds of One eskimO and hang out and chill.

"...catchy, ambient pop." is what Billboard Magazine calls the sound of One eskimO's self-titled debut album and the LA Times magazine hails the song 'Kandi' "a beautiful, aspirational track."

The album is available in stores now or you can check out the deluxe version available on iTunes right here!  This features a bonus track and pair the album with The Adventures of One eskimO, an animated story set to the music of the entire album.  How cool is that?

Here's the track listing and an opportunity to get a free download of "Astronauts" via Twitter.

Track List

Hometime
Astronauts
Kandi
Slip
Simple Day
Givin Up
Chocolate
All Balloons
Chosen One
UFO
Amazing

I love the overall low key and chill out sounds of this band.  My favorite song, while not necessarily the acclaimed hit 'Kandi', of all the songs, I'm totally loving 'Chosen One'.  The whole album is pretty mellow and has a pretty good chill out factor.

Now, you may have caught One eskimO opening for Tori Amos last year and will be opening for Michael Franti & Spearhead through their May and June tour.  (All shows except Mountain Jam & Mile High Festival)

Nourish Your Inner Goddess with Yoplait Greek {Giveaway}

~~ Congratulations Terry! ~~
You are going to love this Greek Goddess prize pack.  Please get back to my email with your addy, so I can get this sent out to you!

Thank you to everyone for participating and spreading the word about this yummy high protein snack.  Have a great day!  I look forward to chatting with you again soon.  ;)  ~Shanna

Ensuring that we give our bodies all the essential nutrients it needs to function properly is not always an easy task.  Too often we are managing so many things for others and easily forget about ourselves.
With 12 grams of protein - twice that found in leading yogurts - new Yoplait Greek nourishes from the inside out.  Available in four delicious flavors, Strawberry, Blueberry, Honey Vanilla and Plan, the brand's newest offering is a unique thick and creamy texture with the unmatched taste expected of Yoplait.
 
So why is protein so important to your inner goddess?  It may or may not be easy to understand the importance of protein, but hopefully this will help.

Protein is an important component of every cell in the body. Hair and nails are mostly made of protein. Your body uses protein to build and repair tissues. You also use protein to make enzymes, hormones, and other body chemicals. Protein is an important building block of bones, muscles, cartilage, skin, and blood.

You can click here to download a coupon* and save $0.30 on one cup of Yoplait Greek today.  Hurry while supplies last.

*A note from the sponsor..  This coupon offer for a free cup of Yoplait Greek yogurt is not valid in some states, including California, Idaho, Louisiana, Minnesota, Nevada, New Jersey, North Dakota and Tennessee.
