Features highlights culled from hours of live recordings from the fall 2011 tour of the West Coast. The duo brings listeners an intimate collection of songs, duets, covers and spoken word pieces that span their respective careers.
The Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter, actor, and author burst onto the music scene with her 2002 smash hit debut album, the self-titled Ashanti. The first single off her latest release is The Woman You Love featuring Busta Rhymes.
Debut album which features songs steeped in history and sung in a close harmony that could only be achieved from sharing a lifetime of sisterly togetherness and a near psychic vocal interplay. An album expanding on an American musical tradition. It is not pastiche or a tribute, but rather a direct antecedent and extension of the original folk legacy that is being exhibited within these songs.
Award-winning duo Alasdair Fraser and Natalie Haas once again unleash their dazzling teamwork. Listeners will hear the driving dancing rhythms, and the shared passion for taking the infectious melodies and grooves of Scottish/Celtic music on an exciting new journey.
Anders Osborne creates his most compelling collection of soul-scorching music. Infectious roots pop gives way to blistering rockers, with still room for a hushed confessional and a playful reggae flavored workout.
Secret Agent 23 Skidoo delivers another slice of funk-fried hip-hop for the whole family. Positive and kid-friendly rap combines with off-kilter funk, buckets of flavor, traditional beats, empowering messages, and a dizzying range of musical styles.
Recess Monkey's tenth album sees the band pretending to be stranded on a remote island. With stripped-down, acoustic instrumentation plus lush orchestrations, they capture the excitement of being young.
