Bedroom Sanctuary is a moniker of Bo Amir Iqram and it's got really chilled out, happy grooves that I really dig. Genre: happy, psychedelic pop mixed with some great acoustics and happy la-di-da's (if there was ever such a genre).

I would say its a nice blend of feel-good, whee-happy electronica, Jack Johnson and lots of John Mayer. His vocal styles and some of the grooves is quite reminiscent of the Mayer dude. The cool thing is that this guy recorded everything and mixed it himself so it's something quite inspiring. 

You can check out samples from the album here: http://www.soundcloud.com/boamiriqramofficial. 

I picked up the album from one of his gigs--so watch out for Bo Amir Iqram! A really fun entertainer with awesome arrangements and stage vibes.

Deanna performing at an event for Fendi
I always think of Deanna Yusoff as the beautiful, waif-like, svelte Malaysian celebrity who graced the silver screens and magazines (remember her role in Anna and The King?). First as a model and actress, who also crossed over to singing. A couple of years back, I interviewed her when she launched her premium Swiss chocolat brand, "Grandjean Freres". Her horror flick "Cermin" had also just ended its run. It was then that I discovered that this remarkable lady has a deep passion for whatever she was doing, and she rarely falls short of being second tier.

With Michael Veerapan's band at Mezze, Medan Damansara, Deanna very much played the part of jazz songstress in belting out smooth and sultry tunes packaged with great showmanship. Among the songs that I really enjoyed were her renditions of "I've Got a Crush on You", "Je Ne Veux Pas Travailler" and an unbelievably jazzed up version of Justin Timberlake's "Sexy Back". 

Deanna also graciously obliged us for e-mail interview which we are excited to publish here. Thank you Deanna! (For more on Deanna, visit her Facebook page

This elegant, half-Swiss and faerie-like lady looks as though she has been ticking off a checklist of hats to wear. Model, check. Actress, check. Businesswoman, check. Ride the F1 circuit, check. 

So this time, put your hands together for her jazz outing at Mezze this weekend. Be there by 9pm to be assured of seats! Otherwise, make a booking.

I'll be there too, so tell me what you think if you happen to come by.

Najwa pushes the envelope of Malaysian music with Innocent Soul, her long-anticipated album after a string of Facebook playlist demo's, live performances at venues including No Black Tie (available on YouTube) and an appearance at StarHill Gallery's annual timepieces exhibition. This studio version captures much of the glitter and chemistry you will find in her shows, only this time without her band Thing One.

Being a bit of a departure from her contemporaries genre-wise, Najwa finds a niche to fill in what she calls "neo-soul", which is really a mix of blues, jazz, soul and a dash of soft electronica somewhere in between. Which is an amazing mix really.
