Talkin' Tea w/Sophie B

Tea Time all the time. Let's Talk About It!

Oh Michael Buble, I love the way you croon me!


Yes I realize that I am late with this album but I tend to stick to artist I know which is usually in the Pop or R&B area. I’ve always been a fan of Buble because of his smooth voice. He’s definitely a crooner reincarnated with his melodic approach to music as old as the 30s. This album in particular covers old classics like “The Best Is Yet To Come” & “It Had Better Be Tonight.” What I’ve come to discover about this 38-year-old Canadian is the older the song, the better he sounds. It’s no wonder this was his big breakout album because its amazing.

Songs like “I’m Your Man” makes you want that fairytale love that you always heard about but never felt exist. The musicianship in these songs are incredible with blaring horns and soft strings and hitting drums. This was when music was real music and put into thought. Back when women were cherished, adored, and romanced. Buble’s vocals are very fitting of these different eras of music and he definitely held his own with vocal trio Boyz II Men on “Comin’ Home Baby.”

If you don’t have this album you should seriously treat yourself to it. Run a hot bubble bath, pour a glass of wine, and allow yourself to drift to a land that Buble wants to take you full of romance, love, sincerity, and affection.

November is a good month for Live Music in the ATL!!!

For those of you who love live music but can’t always afford the big concerts at the bigger venues with the bigger ticket prices, I have a special treat for you. There are several good concerts coming up that won’t break the bank but is guaranteed to make you feel good and shake a tail feather or two with your boo, good friend, or by yourself.


Kicking off the month is the jazz pianist Robert Glasper for his Black Radio 2 album which features several incredible artists such as  COMMON, MARSHA AMBROSIUS, BRANDY, JILL SCOTT, ANTHONY HAMILTON, NORAH JONES, SNOOP DOGG, LUPE FIASCO, EMELI SANDÉ, AND MORE. With features like this you never know who may show up and bless the stage. Catch Robert at Variety Playhouse November 6, 8pm. Tickets start at $30 in adv and $35 at the door day of. I recommend you get yours early.


Mid month is Atlanta’s own Anthony David. Although Anthony was born in Savannah, Atlanta is and has been the place he calls home. I’ve seen Anthony perform numerous times and he never disappoints. With ticket prices at $15 in adv and $20 day of show, how could you miss it. Grab a bite, grab a friend, grab a drink and enjoy the show. Anthony will be at The Loft November 15. Doors open at 9 and starts at 10pm.

PJ Morton

Lastly and rightfully so to end the month on a good note is Mr. PJ Morton aka Live Show Killa and he definitely earned the nickname. PJ is currently the stand-in keyboard pianist for Maroon 5 (one of my favorite groups) and recently wrapped up several tours 2 with the band and one of his home. One may ask when does he take a break?! As a special treat for Atlantans, PJ will be performing 2 nights at the infamous well known Apache Cafe Nov. 29th & 30th priced at $20 per show or $30 for both. The first night is with friends such as Rahbi, Kameron Corvet, Anthony David, Chantae Cann, and Algebra. I’ve had the opportunity to witness each of these people individually and they’re all phenomenal so to have them all in one night will be incredible. Night 2 will be a freestyle reunion so expect incredible instrumentals. Either way you can’t go wrong either night. I hope to see you there!!!

What show will you be attending?!
