Anoop Desai in Atlanta for BMI showcase concert

Anoop Desai1

We got a call from a publicist yesterday telling us Anoop Desai was in Atlanta for a BMI showcase concert tonight at a W Hotel. This isn’t a public concert but in effect an audition for label people.

I spoke with him just to catch up since he released his EP this past spring.

I asked if he considered this the biggest performance since he was on “Idol.” “I don’t know,” he said. “As far as a gig, maybe. I’m trying honestly not to think about it. Every time I do a gig, I try to make fans. This event is about fans but also about something else. There is an added aspect of it.”

He said he’s still learning to be a stage performer. He now has a seven-person band but will do an acoustic set tonight with two guitarists. He will also have to sit on a stool, he said, because he recently sprained his ankle from a basketball game. “It’s really annoying especially with a show on the horizon. I love to work out and everything.”

Anoop said he moved to Los Angeles last year in October. “I didn’t really fit in there,” he said. “Maybe I thought I was something I wasn’t. I had this idea in my mind what I should be doing when I really hadn’t put the work in yet.”

So he moved back to Chapel Hill, N.C. seven months later. He said he’s been far more productive since being back home. He’s assembled his manager, radio and publicity team. He put out his indie E.P.

But without label support, he knows how hard it is to get radio airplay. He has a single out “All is Fair,” which is being played on a single station in Savannah.

Anoop is flying out to Los Angeles tomorrow morning to shoot a video for the song and record more tunes.

I asked him what his brand is: “It’s smart. It’s intelligent. I’m a gentleman. My music is real. It talks about life and situations I can relate to. You’re never going to hear me singing a song like Kesha or Adam [Lambert.] That’s not my lane. My lane is smart and hip. It’s hooky, it’ s catchy. I want to appeal to simple universal characteristics we all want, which is love.”

UPDATE @ 7:21 AM Friday: Apparently, some Adam Lambert fans had gotten a hold of this and thought Anoop was implying that Adam’s music is not smart or hip or hooky or catchy. That was not what he meant at all. He called me this morning to make that clear. I knew he was simply saying that his style is different from Adam’s, that’s all. Nothing more than that.

He said he is single though he doesn’t preclude dating. He has had pain and breakups and such in the past. “That really is the main vein running through ‘All is Fair.’ Me writing about people without calling them out.”

- Elton John says “X Factor” is brain-crippling, boring TV.

- My daily “Mama’s Song” update: Carrie Underwood’s song was spun 4,773 times the past seven days (Oct. 14-20), up 405 spins week over week. She remains at No. 15, 480 spins behind the No. 14 song.

Anoop: “That’s not my lane. My lane is smart and hip. It’s hooky, it’ s catchy.”

Oh Great! I hope Randy Jackson doesn’t read this blog… or these will be the new, meaningless cliche’ terms he throws into his critiques.

“Dawg. I liked that song. It was hooky, and catchy. It was smart and hip. That song was really in your lane.”

Can we erase Anoop from the list of names followed by the blog? He’s just not in my lane. Every interview I’ve read with him he comes across as snotty. I don’t need to read about a pompous struggling artist. Good questions Rodney, but the guy needs a reality check, oh wait he got one and still doesn’t get it.

Remember when Elton John was making hits? The current generation doesn’t.

Not interested in Anoop and never was. To me he seems like a smart azz. Just my opinion.

Whatever happen to “Freedom of Speech?” Can one not voice their opinion in public? Fear of losing your job is a major drawback in employees not standing up to what they believe in and voicing their opinions. As a retired HR manager, I have seen this many times and the employee would come to me instead of their manager.

Hey, everyone. Some of you already know that our blog buddy, KPH was excited that he was going to be a grandfather. The baby has come about 11 weeks early and is struggling. I have been in email contact with him, and he has given me permission to post this message from him on our blog. He has asked for our prayers. Here it is:

Harriett he has a grade 3 brain hemmorhage. They will do another brain sonogram friday to check it. They said it was ok to wait that long before the next test because the hemmorhage is a very slow proggession weather it is getting worse or better. If they determine that he will need a shunt implanted they will transfere him to Childrens Hospital Atlanta. The only other thing besides the sonogram they can do is measure his head and it has not changed so that is good news. They had to put him on a vetalator for his breathing but other than that and the brain bleed all vitals and bodily functions are normal at this point. Keep up the prayers folks. I just know God will heal our little Porter. Oh and yes post it to the blog. Every prayer will help. Thanks Harriett.

Everyone is entitled to their opinion and everyone has probably been guilty of prejudging someone. It’s amazing that people who feel they are good judges of someone’s talent haven’t even given the person a chance. Before you judge Anoop or other artists, you might want to take a few minutes and listen to what they offer. The music Anoop has done since Idol is very different and much better than what we saw on tv. You may or may not like it but at least you could offer an honest opinion.

Kate

October 21st, 2010

When one thinks of smart, hip and intelligent one automatically thinks of Anoop? Not international platinum and gold selling artists like Adam and Kesha. WTF is this guy smoking?No problem with having confidence in yourself but I would think twice about the put-down of artists that you have no chance of matching. It makes you look not so smart, intelligent or hip.

Anoop has a pleasant voice – have downloaded something, but forget what. Sounds like when he arrived in LA he knew he was WAY out of his depth and so retreated back to what he knew. Don’t think he has much of a chance – not particularly good looking nor charming – no real charisma that I can fathom. Had to laugh at what his “lane” was – how’s that different from other “hooky, catchy” songs. And what does being a “gentleman” mean? Think he’s in the wrong biz. As far as Lambert’s “lane,” Anoop couldn’t sing those songs if he tried like forever. lol Hope he didn’t mean it as snotty as it came across in print. Yeah – maybe Bollywood.

Anoop..REALLY?? You Downgrade Adam Lambert?? WOW! So Your “LANE” is “Smart and Hip” unlike Adams which would be Ignorant and Uncool??? You really are a silly man and not a friend of Adams.
Adam’s Talent is beyond Phenomenal and Extraordinary, it is Otherworldly…Every time I see Adam in concert I am blown away more each time. His voice needs NO autotune, back up help, just him and a mic…I am still stunned by Adams Voice..it saturates every fiber of my being…Adam will be Iconic…and he is so humble and sweet..and teaching the world NOT TO JUDGE EACH OTHER, LOVE ONE ANOTHER, ALWAYS COMMPLIMENT, AND IF YOU CAN’T SAY SOMETHING NICE…SAY NOTHING…ADAM TEACHES BY EXAMPLE..YOU COULD LEARN SO MUCH FROM ADAM!

If you have to use others as a pedestal, you run the risk of your pedestal taking a walk, especially when you diss them. Better to grow in stature on your own, without artificial boosters, Anoop. Do you think Adam would have said what came out of your mouth in promoting your music? Not a chance. He’s too smart, hip, and intelligent. Hope for your sake you take some pointers from Adam on how to be a real gentleman.

I just got a call from Anoop this morning. He apparently is getting flak for the quote referencing Adam Lambert. He was not meaning to disparage Kesha or Adam at all. He wanted me to clarify. He was simply saying his music is different from theirs. He’s not saying their music isn’t hip or smart or catchy or hooky. His sound is more R&B pop. That’s all.

When Anoop’s cd came out Adam Lambert tweeted his fans to listen and support Anoop. He does have some good songs on there,but the remark about Kesha and Adam was just to get publicity and is really uncalled for. Sorry Anoop-stepping on others won’t get you to the top.

Not wanting to throw a monkey wrench into the fire here but since when did it start that stepping on others does not get someone to the top? A guarantee it may not be but it has certainly been a tradition honored by time that has helped many men and even women too achieve their dreams at the expense of others.

Before I leave, do want to recommend both “Conviction” and “Hereafter”. “Conviction” stands for the false imprisonment of real-life Kenny Waters, who spent 18 years of a life sentence for a mruder he didn’t commit, and also his sister Betty Anne’s determination to free him because she “knows” he’s innocent. Hilary Swank, always good at playing scrappy women who overcome terrible odds, is the star, but the actor you will remember here is Sam Rockwell as Kenny. And Juliette Lewis has returned from who knows where, for two darn good scenes.

Anoop obviously you are not very smart attacking Adam Lambert as supportive he is to all his Idol alumni. You are right, you can never sing like Adam Lambert. You will not have one quarter of Kasha’s success. Dream on Anoop.

If indeed Anoop did not mean his remarks in a disparaging way then I think all the “hate on Anoop ” will go away soon. Got to . respect Anoop for coming out loud and strong and not letting people STEP ON HIM. AND MO, if stepping on people is HOW you get to the TOP (wherever the top may be????) it may not feel that special once you get there .Try talent, integrity,creativity,intelligence-that COULD work too.

“Hereafter” was directed by Clint Eastwood who starts his movie with some of the most intense special effects I’ve ever seen – a tsunami, as experienced by people watching a mammoth wave approaching, from the safety of their upper hotel floor, and the people on ground level who cannot escape the violent waters.

A French woman comes back “from the dead” and can’t let go of her experience. While she looks into the “hereafter”, Eastwood introduces two oher characters, a psychic, who tries to escape his ability to contact the dead, and a young boy who has lost his twin in an accident, and want’s to hear from him again.

We know these three people will meet, and the driector takes his time getting there, but I didn’t mind..

Mo, they could have delivered the sod at 10pm and gotten the same results. Waking me up at 1am did NOT make me happy!

I think the Anoop crowd will be easy to ignore. Poor Anoop…he tries to sound strong and ready for anything and he makes the mistake of bringing Adam into it.

Good Morning Everyone! (esp. Rickster who doesnt fail to include me in his greetings :-D )

Adam’s fans are screaming that Anoop is a nobody… So why the hell are they so affected by a nobody’s statement? just wondering…

The other typhoon had just exited our country but another one is already approaching.. oh brother..

TGIF,

Nana, loved the update on the blog twins. Yay for grandkids.

Mercedes, enjoy your time away. Not sure if I’ve said it before, but I look forward to your movie reviews. Thanks for sharing.

Sam-A, well, of course. I will be at Gwinnett Arena on Wednesday night. Quite possibly with bells on. ;) Everything I’ve heard is that Carrie’s show is pretty amazing these days.

We shall see how much she’s improved from the last time I saw her. When she opened for Keith Urban on April 24, 2008. Yes, I recall the date… :D

D, sod…reminds me of the scene with Fun with Dick and Jane.

Sakura, stay safe! Have a great day/night. And if I haven’t said it before thanks for joining us.

LOL! “Quite possibly with bells on” says kelly&carriefan. Just make sure that bells are not the ONLY things you have on!!! Security might frown upon that, my friend. :-)

Welcome also to sakura. Should have jumped on the “welcome sakura” train sooner but knew I was already behind JTesla and the aforementioned Rickster!

LOL! wreckedpizza, I don’t see what the problem with that would be…I mean, as long as the bells are strategically placed? ;)

Sam, thanks. I pretty much know I will.

Okay, I am with you kelly&carriefan. But, if that is to be your attire, we need pics!!! Lots of pics, alright? Maybe even one or two of Carrie while you are at it…

While (kinda) on the subject of concerts, any word on when Kelly C. may return to ATL or nearby?

Regarding Anoop’s words… looks to me like Anoop stepped in some poop.

K&Cfan: I’m with wreckedpizza… pics or it didn’t happen ;)

Sakura: Another Typhoon! DANG.
