Turin Brakes

Turin Brakes

Turin Brakes is a modern duo from London consisting of Olly Knights and Gale Paridjanian. They had a UK top 5 hit with their song 'Painkiller (Summer Rain)' and are joined on stage by Rob Allum and Eddy Meyer, their live band. Since starting out in 1999, the band has sold around 1 million records internationally. They are currently signed to Cooking Vinyl.

Turin Brakes have often been compared to many of the new acoustic movements bands spawned in the late 1990's such as Elbow, Starsailor and the Norwegian band Kings of Convenience. On each record the Turin Brakes try to change their sound. While the first album features a lot of acoustic guitar, the second album featured more electric guitar and was in total a lot darker. Their third album, 'Jackinabox', can be seen as more of a combination been the first two. Their latest album was released on September 30th 2013.

Robin McKelle

Robin McKelle

Robin McKelle is a vocalist who has straddled the line between classic rhythm & blues and traditional pop music, but her love of swing and big-band jazz has been even more pronounced. She was discovered in France through two swing jazz albums recorded with a big band: Introducing Robin McKelle (2006) and Modern Antique (2008). Both these albums happened almost by accident, but one thing lead to another and McKelle started touring all around the world with great success. The list of artists she has worked with since includes George Duke, Herbie Hancock, BeBe Winans, David Bowie, Carly Simon, Michael McDonald and Gregory Porter among others.

For her new album, 'Heart of Memphis', two years after her latest album Soul Flower, she immersed herself in the spirit of this magical city. With her deep voice and her earthy, frank, direct and gut-wrenching singing, McKelle embraces the legacy of those great artist from a city well-known for its tendency towards raw expression. Regarding her explosive live performances, Robin McKelle is influenced as much by the great male soul singers as by the divas of the 60's.

Otis Taylor

Otis Taylor

Otis Taylor is an American blues musician. He's a multi-instrumentalist whose talents include the guitar, banjo, mandolin, harmonica and vocals.  With him, it's best to expect the unexpected.  While his music, an amalgamation of roots styles in their rawest form, discusses heavyweight issues like murder, homelessness, tyranny, and injustice, his personal style is lighthearted. Part of Taylor's appeal is his contrasting character traits. But it is precisely this element of surprise that makes him one of the most compelling artists to emerge in recent years. Guitar Player magazine writes, 'Otis Taylor is arguably the most relevant blues artist of our time.'  Taylor has released over 10 albums,was awarded a fellowship to the Sundance Film Composers Labaratory in 2001 and was nominated for two Handys  'Best Acoustic Artist' and 'Contemporary Blues Album' in 2003. This tour is for his latest album 'My World Is Gone'.

The John Adams Institute presents Gary Shteyngart

Gary Shteyngart's parents were disappointed in their baby, who was sickly and asthmatic. His dad called him 'Snotty', his mom 'Failurchka' - hence the title of his new book, 'Little Failure'. He's back to talk about this, his first foray into non-fiction in the form of a memoir. He left Leningrad with his parents for the US at the age of seven. Only then did he started to learn English - and now teaches writing at Columbia University. The immigrant experience, both his parents' and his own, is a never-ending source for his satirical humor.

Gary Shteyngart is the author of the novels Super Sad True Love Story, Absurdistan, which was chosen as one of the ten best books of the year by the New York Times Book Review and Time magazine. His work has been translated into twenty-six languages and The New York Times regards him as 'one if his generation's most original and exhilirating writers'.

Julian Velard

Julian Velard's engaging style of theatrical, piano-based pop has been colored richly by several stints in London, where he recorded his first two full-length albums, The Planeteer (2009) and Mr. Saturday Night (2011). On his upcoming release, 'If You Don't Like It, You Can Leave', he's bringing it all back to New York City, his birthplace and lifelong home. With a style The Sunday Times calls 'catchy but complicated; a surprisingly rare combination,' Velard turns the piano-pop tunesmith stereotype on its ear with a most refreshing twist: a biting 21st century wit in a stylish package - think Harry Connick, Jr.  with the panache of a Brooklyn hipster - recalling Stephen Sondheim or Randy Newman at the peak of their talents. Julian's versatility has also earned him regular appearances on NPR.

'If You Don't Like It, You Can Leave' finds Julian at his most inventive and deeply personal, with nine engaging originals about happiness and heartbreak across the five boroughs. Velard becomes the most captivating keymaster to the greatest city in the world. This album debuted on the Dutch Album Charts at #73 and he's also one of 3fm's favorite artists of this time.
