A look at a couple of Blair's bands and artists
Looking for new music? You don't have to look too far: Blair is packed with talented musical artists and bands. Here are a few unique artists who are pretty close to home.
Junior Ian Donaldson is a pianist, guitarist, and singer-songwriter who can regularly be spotted at open mics and other school performance venues. His performance style is melodic and slow, and he can hit and hold tough notes at ease. He cites Elton John and Billy Joel as his influences, and they can be clearly heard in his debut song "Smile", which showcases gentle, calming piano melodies and simple, sweet lyrics. Check it out here.
Junior Mariam Jiffar had made a special resolution for the year of 2014: she promised herself she would record a song or a song cover once a week for the entire year to post on Soundcloud. So far, Jiffar has yet to miss a week, with covers aided by the guitar, vocal filters, and loads of harmonies. She never fails to bring a new, original sound to each song she covers and make them her own. Some of her covers are even sung a capella, using only her voice, and she always makes sure that every note is sung impeccably in tune. Check out her Soundcloud page for all of her covers.
