    What Anastacia Taught Me About Control

    What Anastacia Taught Me About Control

    This week I’m looking at an artist who I personally wonder if she’s slightly overlooked when it comes to the great divas. Because in my mind she’s there. At 5ft 2inches tall, Anastacia had a voice which was alarmingly big for her teeny stature. Her story is jam packed with lessons about humanity, femininity and super stardom. From being plagued with physical health challenges, she was extremely resilient and positive. With an incredibly distinctive sound her music definitely defined a period of time in my growing up and is such an inspirational woman. 
    This is a lesson in control by Anastacia.

    Voice Notes, Staying Active, Touring and Rudimental, with MORGAN

    Voice Notes, Staying Active, Touring and Rudimental, with MORGAN

    This week, Lex is boosted by the focus of a star on the rise. Having grown up obsessed with music, when most of her friend’s went to college, Morgan went on tour and began a whole different kind of education. 
    With releases through 2020 showing her breadth as an artist, from the ultra smooth 'Sanctuary', to the announcement single 'My Year' to the huge rudimental track ‘Be The One’, it’s been a really interesting year for her creatively.

    What Destiny's Child Taught Me About Focus

    What Destiny's Child Taught Me About Focus

    This week, I’m doing something a little different, and taking a look at the musical journey of not just one woman, but three. Destiny’s Child were a super group who achieved super success. Three magical talents, which together formed a group of rare longevity and icon stature. Rather than centre on the individuals, in this episode I’ll walk you through their career as a group. The foundation, the dynamics, the failures and the methods which meant those failures weren’t the end point. 
    This is a lesson in focus, by Destiny’s Child

    Musical Lineage, Independence and Jamming with Paul McCartney, with Shingai

    Musical Lineage, Independence and Jamming with Paul McCartney, with Shingai

    This week Lex is joined by Shingai Shoniwa. Shingai rose to prominence as the lead singer and bassist for The Noisettes. After a really incredible journey in that band she is now releasing music as a solo artist under her own label. She is the most magical spirit and an entertainer in every sense of the word. Through this conversation we cover so many of the things which have influenced and shaped her career.
    It's a conversation, both hilarious and insightful.

    What Aretha Franklin Taught Me About Power

    What Aretha Franklin Taught Me About Power

    Later on this year a biographical film is being released starring Jennifer Hudson which will attempt to tell the story of one of the most remarkable artists of all time. Aretha Franklin died in August 2018 having released nearly 40 albums, had multiple number one singles, multiple grammy awards. But more than her musical legacy, Aretha’s voice and songs soundtracked a revolution and became a huge part of the civil rights movement in America. Perhaps this journey and the hope embedded deep in her voice is why she has a tendency to bring Barack Obama to tears in public places. 
    The nuances and complexities of Aretha’s journey are part of what sits behind that incredible voice. She is a soul campaigner who sang from her core and moved communities and particularly black communities and made audiences feel they were experiencing divine magic when they watched her. 
    This is an episode about power as taught by Aretha Franklin
