Beabadoobee might not be a household name yet, but you may have recently heard her voice – albeit a much faster, higher pitched version, in the song “Death Bed (Coffee for Your Head)” by Canadian rapper Powfu. The song currently holds a record of 5 million plays on TikTok and charted in Billboard’s Hot 100 last year, boasting 2.7 billion streams. This success might not come as much of a surprise to some Spotify listeners as “Death Bed” actually features a sample from beabadoobee‘s single “Coffee” – a tune that already reached viral hit status on Spotify a few years back. Beatrice Laus a.k.a. beabadoobee, has been writing and singing her own songs since she was a young teen. The song “Coffee”, written when she […]
Surprise! We’re still alive! I know, I know, it’s been ten years since my last post – it would’ve been lucky eleven, but I just had to push by butt into posting something here. No promises here – I’m not sure when the next post will be, but I figure it will be more frequent nowadays that I’ve given The Indie Music Database a new coat of paint.

So if I were you and aren’t doing anything this Saturday night — I’d head on over to Stanley Park, get a $5 dollar bag of mini donuts, an ice cold lemonade, and bask under the Vancouver sun while I listen to some awesome live music.
At last something new! Well, new-ish. Although the video might be a year old, it’s been more than six months since my last post. I thought I’d throw in something by the Shout Out Louds to hark my return, especially since the first lines in this song rings true to what this blog and I have. Before I wax poetic on how I always come back, let’s take a moment and soak in the wonder of Shout Out Louds — the underwater version. There’s always beauty and grace in underwater shots — just not when you’re trying to sing.
