MUSIC I LOVE: Eva Celia – Reason


I have always been a fan of Eva Celia, the beautiful and super talented daughter of Indra Lesmana and Sophia Latjuba. I think years and years ago I used to visit her blog (which she wrote in English – I hope it was her real blog though. I got the address from Raditya Dika’s) and her writings were REALLY GOOD. Like, how come a teenager can write like that? Too bad she deleted it (or maybe hid it or made a new blog I was not aware of). So at least at one point I know she’s a really good writer. But as some people are really gifted, years after, around 2011, I found her Youtube video covering a song from Sam Sparro – Black and Gold and I really loved it, it’s way better than the original version methinks, and I mean, my God, WHAT A VOICE. Such a lucky girl. 

She was in the US back then but made some visits to Indonesia in which she used to do a show along with her father in RW Lounge, Kemang (not sure if the cafe is still there). And once I watched her Christmas Jazz show in December 2011, and again, loved it. Instantly a fan. And I could see that she is so nice in person. *ikrib bener lo, Tep* But you know you can read people’s body language, right? Like, the way they carry themselves? I got a good vibe.

So as a fan, I was really happy that she makes a career here with some movies and a few singles (Adriana soundtracks and some duets with her dad), and on the last 27th of April 2015 she finally released a single she composed herself from her upcoming album. YAY! The song is called “Reason” and I love both her lyrics and melody! Can’t wait for the next ones. Go buy it on iTunes, darlings!
