It looks like Son Dam Bi will be hanging out by my house for an extra week, thank you very much. After her well anticipated concert on November 14 with Lee Seung Gi, she’ll be giving you another chance to witness her gorgeous aura the following Saturday. If you’re a devout fan, you’ll be stalking her on both days. More »
Yes, it’s true. I check Priscilla Ahn’s blog once a week and wish she would write more often or make an RSS feed or something. She blogs in spurts then goes offline, and when she left to tour Europe, I thought for sure I’d get to read more stuff from her. (She should be in Amsterdam right about now.)

This article is what led me to discover this new Amerasian (1/2 Korean and 1/2 Caucasian I assume) singer. Born Priscilla Natalie Hartranft, she decided to change her last name to her Korean mother’s native name to reflect her Asian heritage. Born in Georgia and after a stint in Korea, she grew up in Pennsylvania. After high school, she was encouraged to expand her musical skills, so she went to Los Angeles, California.
She independently made an album, Priscilla Ahn, and Blue Note Records discovered her talents and took her in to their company. Her next album, A Good Day was released earlier this year, along with her first single, “Dream”. That song’s received more attention when it was used for season four finale of Grey’s Anatomy.
Amazingly, enough, she will actually be on a tour in Seoul, at Hongik University (Hongdae) on December 4, 2008. I actually took the time to listen to a few of her songs and discovered that I like her style. She’s like Norah Jones on the guitar, but better. I like her voice. It’s really pretty. It’s a darn shame that I can’t go to the performance, though. Something called work is my first priority. More »
