Yesterday I mentioned, once again, a band that I’ve been loving since the first listen: Le Rev. The front woman for this band is also the blogger behind Sass A Frass and the face of the new Quiksilver Women’s line. C.C. Sheffield is my latest girl crush and fashion muse. She’s both carefree and totally put together. I adore her willingness to experiment with her style. Punk, hippy, classic, tomboy; she can pull off any style without even trying. Plus, she’s got love for my boy Rob Dyrdek.
I was initially exposed to Le Rev because one of their songs is featured in the Quik Women’s vibe video. I loved the song Je t’aime immediately and was determined to track down more tunes by this Los Angeles band. C.C. Sheffield can downshift from whisper to scream in a drumbeat, alternately channeling personas as varied as a French chanteuse, larger-than-life diva and little girl lost to belt out emotionally-charged stories. Le Rev is the creation of Sheffield and guitarist Nico Chiotellis, who wrote all the songs together and created an incredible and unique sound.
If you haven’t checked out the blog and sound of this young lady, may I please suggest that you do.
I feel like I’ve been quite the whiny, little Negative Nelly over the last couple of weeks. So today, I’m going to pull a Meg and shout out some love with my very own Friday love list.
Looking on the bright side (it’s been a while, I know…) here’s what I love right now:
Life on the road has been less than fabulous this time around. I’ll be honest…we’ve been punched in the face with a whole lot of bad luck on this trip. The worst of which, found me huddled beside the toilet for most of yesterday. What I thought was a touch of the flu, turned out to be a gut wrenching case of food poisoning. I was literally vomiting between showings. It was awful. To be honest, it was the most horrible that I can ever remember feeling in my entire life. There’s not much worse than being sick like that when you’re away from home, either. I was writhing around on the bed in my hotel room for hours in pain. Not fun. Thankfully, it seems to have passed through my system now. Despite feeling weak and tired, the worst of it seems to be over. Only two more days to go until I get to go home to my own, comfy bed.
