I am in the office today. It's humming with servers, buzzing with the sound of techs on phones, people talking out in the showroom - nothing at all like when I work from home (when I get squealing girls, blower vacs, angle grinders, dogs barking!). I used to work in the office 5 days a week. It was fine. Now, I only come in on average once a week - and I notice all the noise and humbuzzing. These computers and servers sure make a racket. From my little corner of the open plan office (right next to the server rack), I am just surrounded by modern noise.
I must really be becoming a grumpy old women. Officially I can't use this title for another 18 months when I turn 50, but I am getting into practice early. I am going to be SO good at it when I turn 50. Once upon a time, noise did not worry me at all. Now, I am so sensitive to it, I can hear it everywhere.
I think I might just plug my earphones in and listen to some music to stop all this noise.
Yes, that's better. A nice deep bass, bad ass drum beat, a gravelly voice, a screaming guitar. All that bad noise gone away.
I am listening to a very talented Kiwi singer, who I have been following for a while now. So thrilled to see she is getting the airplay she so deserves. I believe too she has a song on the new James Bond movie, along with another favorite female singer, Adele.
So who is she?
Gin Wigmore (and no I didn't discover her because of the Gin connection)

This video is not one of her big hits but I like it a lot.
And this is another favorite. Killer bass beat.
Hope you get to have a listen - she has an awesome voice, and I just love the mexican guitar and deep bass notes.
