Do you ever feel nostalgia?
Well, I do. Quite often to be honest. And I like wandering through early days in my mind, remembering little things from my childhood like running in a princess dress thinking I could do everything.
(I still do that.) (Not in a princess dress though.)
And 'Song Of The Day' is exactly about that feeling - feeling nostalgic about your childhood and dealing with growing up.
Martin Luke Brown is the artist behind our song of the day. He started making music at the age of 14 and has been writing and recording ever since. The musician from Leicester, UK could be classified as alternative pop mixed with acoustic and soul elements.

I still remember how early last year the world discovered Tom Odell, a young British lad with a voice that got most of us drooling.
Around the same time this year we all did the same again and discovered George Ezra - another young British lad with another voice we can drool over.
The singer/songwriter from Bristol has been around for a little longer though. BBC Bristol started playing his music back in 2012, in 2013 he played at Glastonbury.
And again it was the dudes from BBC who listed George under 'Sound Of 2014' and apparently they were right, once again.
And now George Ezra is here with his debut album 'Wanted On Voyage'.
Is it worth the hype?
Let's find out!
Hudson Taylor is a duo consisting of the brothers Alfie and Harry from Dublin, Ireland.
Two lads with a lot of passion and even more talent to make music.
They started out busking on the streets of Dublin and continued recording videos on their YouTube channel throughout the years which had over 4.5 million views by now.
Besides cover versions of famous tracks they also perform their originals and have released quite a few tunes.

Great Britain - you land of musical talent...
Has anyone of you noticed that around 70% of all artists/bands blogged are from the UK?
I'm not saying that other artists are not talented, geez, there are so many jewels from all over the world.
But a lot of them are from the British land.
And so is Ed Sheeran.
Who doesn't know the Abbey Road Studios?
Yeah, they're legendary, it's no secret!
And the band you'll be able to get to know today has recorded their EP there.
Bella Loka is a two piece outfit from London, UK consisting of Tea Boothby and David Boothby.
David took time to chat with us about recording in said legendary studios, writing songs at night, the household of a married couple making music together and Doctor Who!
Find out more about the band now and make sure to check out their music below.
It's no secret that I'm a convinced social media user.
Neither is it a secret that I'm a massive music lover.
Being a music blogger I instantly thought about musicians to interview and special topics to talk about.
For me, usually, the first idea I get is the best and the one I stick with.
Actually the interview was just for my studies but it turned out to be so interesting that I just have to share it with you.
The video that's in the spotlight is the music video for 'Say No' by Casino Circus.
Same day, hours later: Still no reply. In the mean time I've wandered through the streets of Berlin, filmed an interview and even changed outfits.
It probably was faith - the second I arrive at Crystal Club a black van rolls up (the black van, guys!) and the guys arrive too.
Release: 25th May 2014

Threre's so much good music on this planet and I fear I won't be able to introduce every talented band but at least I can share some of them with you.
Moonlands for example.
Moonlands are a four piece outfit from Brighton, England consisting of
Lucy Elliot (vocals, guitar)
Joel Frosh (guitar)
Josh Fry (bass, backing vocals)
Joel Brooks (drums)
They play atmospheric pop blended with different elements.
Just last month they released their debut EP 'Paradise Blue' which was recorded at JBJ Recording Studios.
And today I'd like to talk about that.
I flew to Berlin just a few weeks ago to do some work and part of that was an interview with Ben Barritt.
Ben Barritt is a singer/songwriter and guitarist originally from the United Kingdom.
The love for music took him to Berlin where he's been living for quite a while now.
After releasing a four track EP called 'Sundial' in April last year he is now working towards a debut album.
We sat down close to the water and chatted about things you need to take with you on tour, travelling in general, different crowds, influeces and a whole lot more.
