@miettehope sharing her take on @beyonce ‘s “Halo” live at @guavarecords • “I like singing this song with the idea that everyone has a halo, they just have to show it.

Today’s release from from Laura Fisher @exactinverse ... in her own words: “@jamesblake is one of my favourite modern artists. I distinctly remember listening to him for the first time shortly after moving to New Orleans four and a half years ago — the band I was in at the time used to play Halo 4 to blow off steam after a long week, and our bassist would always mute the sound to put on some great new music for a soundtrack. One day he put on James Blake and the roof blew off my world. I can still see vague images of the game in my head shifting to his self-titled debut; a whirlwind of seafoam green, purple, many shades of blue, battle, landscape, minimalist sound sculpture and THAT VOICE... power. Longing. Seeing him live a few years later remains one of the best shows I’ve ever seen and ‘The Colour in Anything’ is one of my favourite records of all time. Blake is a brilliant songwriter, an innovative arranger & producer, and a soulful yet harrowing singer. I love that he is a force of electronic production yet equally strong when performing stripped down with just piano and vocals. I’d always wanted to cover a song of his and at the time of doing this live session at @guavarecords, ‘My Willing Heart’ was a favourite. To me it’s a love song of initial connectivity, arcing desire, and obsessive missing.... both traditionally painted and with a tinge of stark modernity as well (“every now and then - you’re still on my screen”). The subject couldn’t be more relevant than it is now during a global pandemic in which everyone and everything is so near yet so far, simultaneously, constantly. Big shout out to @jeremydmarx for helping me to dissect the chord structure and create an incredibly fun/satisfying piano arrangement. And thanks to @darrenhoffman for having me in the old Brooklyn recording space. I’m thrilled to share this cover today! especially while finishing a second solo record largely centered around electronic production. Here’s a taste of stripped down piano and vocals to tide you over until then. Thxx for listening 🔉 hope you enjoy.”

Guava Records was founded on the principle of striving for equity and justice in the music industry. We are fundamentally anti-capitalist, anti-racist and pro-humanist.

Each record we make is created from a place of love. We are humbled to work with incredible artists. Meah Pace @meahpace is one such artist. We are honored to present her rendition of “Ain't Gonna Let Nobody Turn Me 'Round” from one of our earliest sessions in our original studio in Greenpoint Brooklyn, December 2017. Full video link in the bio.

Meah Pace is the renowned singer from dance/punk band "!!!" (Chk Chk Chk) and a featured singer in the Resistance Revival Chorus, a new group spearheaded by the organizers of the Women’s March. She is also a beloved presence on the Brooklyn soul scene through work with Binky Griptite's The Mellomatics, Rev. Vince Anderson's Love Choir and her own band, The MAP Legends.

Well certainly it's been a time. And it's been a minute since we've been releasing music regularly. As we slowly emerge from isolation, here's a song from @_chelseahines (written well before covid) that conveys just a bit about what a being alone feels like. And while we took a little break out of respect for the process that we've all been going through, Guava is getting back on the horse and will be steady rolling out more music soon.
