Priscilla Ahn was just recently on tour in China (see photo), where apparently she had trouble with her facebook because of the Great Firewall of China.
Anyway, we recently saw Selena Gomez and she loved Anh and covered one of her most well-known song, "Dream".
What's new with Ahn? She is back with a new record called This is Where We Are and it's coming out February 25th on SQE Music. The leading single is called "Diana", which will be unveiled December 10th.
The new album was written during a trip to the desert, in a hotel room outside Palm Springs. This is Where We Are is said to evolve from her singer/songwriter acoustic music that she's known for. Instead, this new guitar-based collection of songs ventures to dreamy electro-pop bliss, etc.
Ahn explains, "For me, this album was about finally finding my voice again as a songwriter and a singer. This Is Where We Are portrays who I am now and another side of myself that I'd never really been able to show in other albums."
A few years ago, we took a road trip to Iowa and I had Elizabeth & The Catapult's album Taller Children in my car. We listened to it on the drive, and we loved it.
Elizabeth & the Catapult, it would seem, is back with a new record called Like it Never Happened, which is coming out Juanuary 21st on Scratchback Records with marketing and distribution provided by Thirty Tigers/RED. You can hear the new single on Soundcloud.
The origin of this album is a result of singer Elizabeth Ziman's creative labors over the past year and a half. After splitting with Verve Records, for their second album The Other Side of Zero, Ziman took to busking in the subways New York to teach herself how to play guitar.
