I'm probably on my way to KL Live right at the moment this entry was published. I'm going to watch Kokokaina a.k.a Zee Avi live in KL. I'm a fan of hers since YouTube and I love her Morrissey's cover, First of the Gang so so much.
Lil' bit of Zee Avi's bio. She was born in Miri, Sarawak. Zee Avi’s real name is Izyan Alirahman, also carrying a nick name of Kokokaina. She moved to Kuala Lumpur when she was 12, studied fashion design at American InterContinental University in London. Her talents was discovered on YouTube by Patrick Keeler of The Raconteurs, who passed the link to Ian Montone, the manager of The White Stripes, The Shins, The Raconteurs, and others. Montone passed her music on to Emmett Malloy, who signed her to Brushfire Records, a record company which is partly owned by Jack Johnson.
She's so lucky and so damn talented. Hello, lucky alone doesn't get you anywhere okay. If you have talent, the lucky part is just a bonus. And she really had hit a jackpot.
Tomorrow night is gonna be a good night as well. Tomorrow, indie folk pop duo, Kings of Convenience will take the stage at Wisma Bentley. Auwh, isn't this the most amazing week ever? Woot!
Mrs Cold, acting so tough. Didn't know you had it in you so be hurt at all...
