Our musician friend, Lee.


A part of what we do is to shed the lights on the emerging artists and musicians and promote community collaborations through the things we love... Through our blog we will keep posting some new tunes that inspires us.

Today's post is about our friend, Lee Endres from Birmingham, UK. What we like about Lee's music is how soothing it is, stories that he talks about are not, shall we say "mainstream romantic"! It is that type of music that makes you wander off with your thoughts, and loose your self in the moment. 

Perhaps this feeling we got from his music is the mere result of how he worked on his album, Lee took time off, isolated himself in the Scottish countryside for three months and experienced what he describes as unique time for inspiration and self-reflection. 

Here's a taste of Lee's music:

Smell the Beans Doha!

We had the pleasure of visiting Doha recently and one of - if not the only - specialty coffee shop in the city. 

Flat White was opened not so long ago in The Pearl district in Doha, offering the locals a breath of freshly brewed coffee and an original experience for all coffee lovers.


We had the pleasure of meeting Mariam, the person behind “Flat White” and soon we engaged in an elaborate conversation about coffee culture in the Gulf. Mariam made sure that there is no sugar available in the shop as an approach to raise awareness about quality coffee and breaking the habits of toffee nuts and caramel syrups drinks that are common in the country. 

By using this approach, Mariam explained, people started conversations with her and the staff about coffee and with one person at a time, “Flat White” is contributing to a positive shift in Gulf’s coffee culture. 


So if you are in Doha anytime soon make sure to pass by “Flat White” located in the Leasing Office in The Pearl and have a cup of their signature flat white or black coffee…
