And today's Music Spotlight is on Shawn Harvey and B57 with their song Edge of a Devil.
Kinga Staszalek is a love and relationship coach expert, energy healer, and founder of Lapis Evolution.
Kinga grew up in a very conservative family where most of her life she was told what to do, how to love, how to talk and how to think. After years of living in an ego-driven world and pleasing others, Kinga realised how disconnected she was from her soul and heart’s desires.
A life crisis inspired her to completely change her personal, love and business life. This was a turning point in Kinga’s life. She started to heal the past, stepped into her unique gift and became a free, strong woman, leading by her own example.
Kinga helps women to step into their inner power, connect with the heart and never hold back their truth. Kinga’s clients get amazing results. They not only become unapologetically themselves but also attract deep authentic connections, ideal life partners and create the life of their dreams, free from society, cultural or family expectations.
Sydney based executive coach and global talent development leader Samridhi Purohit is a fan of transformation. Her 14 years of experience as a learning strategist, award-winning facilitator and internationally certified coach shines through in her work of bringing out the kinder, happier and more productive versions in people and teams from Fortune 500 companies across the USA, Australia, China, India, New Zealand and Singapore. She enjoys using theatre, games and art for bringing out deep self-reflection and empowerment for her clients. Her life’s mission is to help people connect with their inner calling and bring out their personal magic.
Born and raised in India, Samridhi loves all things culture and tradition while also challenging the status quo and seeking her own personal stories through her solo travels. If left unsupervised, you’d most likely find her crooning along with a street artist or laughing uncontrollably at a 4-year-old’s joke!
It is difficult to describe who Triin Uustalu is. She has worked as a professional programmer but has also dedicated her life to learning to know the real world, human soul and little things in life. Her inner child has been her life-long companion, urging her to explore new and exciting themes. Inspired by it, she has learned glass cutting, growing watermelons, smelting and forging iron smelting, weaving on the loom, the dialect of doves, woodworking, ice-skating (something she disliked as a child), horseback riding, silversmithing, welding and more. She also built a small treehouse (her children applauded to that), a brick stove, made furniture, many lamps, and other wonderous things. She discovered that there is much more to all of these adventures than just technical aspects, so she has written several manuscripts about them.
Triin lives with her children in a small village in Estonia, works as a robotics teacher, is the creator behind Magpie Mill Jewelry and writes about discovering the world.

"For those who have never heard of Shawn, he is an already well established British singer, songwriter, guitarist, multi-instrumentalist and producer, who has a large international fan base and is equally a well-respected musician amongst other musicians throughout the world. For over a decade he has written and recorded Pop, Rock and Blues, like very few do, and to top it off, he has worked with a great number of influential names, such Albert Lee, Boz Boorer and Linda Gail Lewis.
Born in Plymouth, England, Shawn grew up in a small tin-mining town in rural Cornwall surrounded by the sounds of the Seventies, a love for music that shines through in his own music to this day. He started playing guitar and writing songs at the age of 13, and since then, has developed his own distinctive style, taking his inspiration from his own early musical influences and adding a large dose of himself to each of his songs and recordings. The result, I am sure you will agree, is a fresh and exciting new sound in recreating 1950s Rock'n'Roll in the 2000s. His live performances have been described as electrifying, and are, say many, still the best way to witness his true musical talent as a singer and guitarist. From years spent on the road, and gigging the length and width of the UK and Europe ever since he was aged 14, has turned him into one of the most exciting performers around today. Catch him performing live and you will catch him in his element."

Shawn is always working on new musical ideas. His current projects are Pretty Pictures, a raw and unplugged acoustic album, and the Best of Shawn Harvey album.
