Norah Jones



Norah Jones first emerged on the world stage with the February 2002 release of Come Away With Me, her self-described moody little record that introduced a singular new voice and grew into a global phenomenon, sweeping the 2003 Grammy Awards and signaling a paradigm shift away from the prevailing pop music of the time. Since then, Norah has sold 50 million albums worldwide and become a 9-time GRAMMY-winner. She has released a series of critically acclaimed and commercially successful solo albumsFeels Like Home (2004), Not Too Late (2007), The Fall (2009), Little Broken Hearts (2012), and Day Breaks (2016)as well as albums with her collective bands The Little Willies and Puss N Boots. The 2010 compilation ...Featuring Norah Jones showcased her incredible versatility by collecting her collaborations with artists as diverse as Willie Nelson, Outkast, Herbie Hancock, and Foo Fighters. Little Broken Hearts, produced by Danger Mouse, was a fascinating step in the artistic evolution of one of the music worlds most consistently intriguing singer-songwriters. With Day Breaks, Norah returned to her jazz roots while also proving her to be this eras quintessential American artist, the purveyor of an unmistakably unique sound that weaves together the threads of several bedrock styles of American music: country, folk, rock, soul, jazz. Most recently, Jones has released a series of eclectic singles including collaborations with artists and friends such as Jeff Tweedy and Thomas Bartlett.

Iris Dement


with Pieta Brown
It was by pure chance that Iris DeMent opened the book of Russian poetry sitting on her piano bench to Anna Akhmatova's "Like A White Stone." She'd never heard of the poet before, and didn't even consider herself much of a poetry buff, but a friend had leant her the anthology and it only seemed polite that she skim it enough to have something interesting to say when she returned it. As she read, though, a curious sensation swept over her."I didn't feel like I was alone anymore," remembers DeMent. "I felt as if somebody walked in the room and said to me, 'Set that to music.'"So she did. The melody just poured out of her almost instantly. She turned the page and it happened again, and again after that, and before she even fully understood it, she was already deep into writing what would become 'The Trackless Woods,' an album which sets Akhmatova's poetry to music for the first time ever.'The Trackless Woods,' DeMent's sixth studio album, is unlike anything else in her illustrious career. Beginning with her 1992 debut, 'Infamous Angel,' which was hailed as "an essential album of the 1990's" by Rolling Stone, DeMent released a series of stellar records that established her as "one of the finest singer-songwriters in America" according to The Guardian. The music earned her multiple Grammy nominations, as well as the respect of peers like John Prine, Steve Earle, and Emmylou Harris, who all invited her to collaborate. Merle Haggard dubbed her "the best singer I've ever heard" and asked her to join his touring band, and David Byrne and Natalie Merchant famously covered her "Let The Mystery Be" as a duet on MTV Unplugged. DeMent returned in 2012 with her most recent album, 'Sing The Delta,' which prompted NPR to call her "one of the great voices in contemporary popular music" and The Boston Globe to hail the collection as "a work of rare, unvarnished grace and power."Meanwhile, behind the scenes, DeMent and her husband were raising their adopted Russian daughter in their Iowa City home. When she looked back on her own childhood, though, DeMent sometimes felt like there was some intangible element that hadn't quite clicked yet."Growing up, a lot of what I understood about my parentsand many of the adults in my life that were nurturing meI understood through music," explains DeMent, who was born the youngest of 14 children in Arkansas and raised in southern California. "I remember noticing that people seem to be most their real selves when they were in the music. My dad would cry my mom would wave her arms around when they sang church music. So I figured out at some point that there was a breakdown there with my daughter. She was six when we adopted her, and there was a whole culture that had been translated to her in those critical years that I didnt feel like I could get through to with the tools I had. So always in the back of my mind, I had this sense of wanting to figure out how to link her two worlds, Russian and American."Akhmatova's poetry proved to be that link and more, as it drew DeMent into a remarkable journey through Russian political and artistic history."Her whole adult working life was marked by this constant struggle to do her work in the face of the Bolshevik Revolution, World War I, World War II, and Stalin," DeMent says of Akhmatova. "The estimates are that between 20-80 million people died during those 30 years he was in power. One of her husbands was executed, one died in the gulag, and her son was sent there twice just by virtue of being her son. She often lived in poverty and out of other peoples homes, never owned a place of her own. She wasn't some elevated star figure exempted from suffering, she was right there in it. All of her poetry came out of that."Akhmatova's struggles weren't unique for her time in Russia, but her poetry still managed to find beauty in a world of pain and ugliness, which DeMent believes is what makes her so deeply loved by the Russian people."I think if you listen to her poems, you can hear all that sorrow and that burden in them," says DeMent, "but there's always a lightness, a transcendence somehow, a sense of victory over all that inhumanity that she was living with every day of her life."It's only fitting, then, that the album opens with, "To My Poems," a short, four-line invocation recorded sparsely and simply with just DeMent's voice and piano as she sings: "You led me into the trackless woods, / My falling stars, my dark endeavor. / You were bitterness, lies, a bill of goods. / You werent a consolation--ever."That stark pairing of piano and voice forms the heart and soul of all 18 tracks on the album, which were recorded live in DeMent's living room under the guidance of producer Richard Bennett and with a small backing band that drifts in and out of the arrangements. The music is firmly rooted in the American South, with timeless melodies that could easily be mistaken for long-forgotten hymnal entries or classic country tunes. "From An Airplane" rollicks with a honky-tonk vibe, while "Not With Deserters" is punctuated by a mournful slide guitar and rich harmonies, and "All Is Sold" ebbs and flows over lush pedal steel. That DeMent can make the work of a 20 th century Russian poet sound like Sunday morning on a cotton plantation is a testament to her versatility and depth as an artist."I learned from this project that I dont have just one voice, I have lots of voices, and they're all connected somehow," says DeMent. "Something happened on this record because the music wasnt tied to a place from my past or my family history, but it was linked to my daughter by way of her cultural history. I realized writing these songs that I'm linked in some way to another world, as well, and I can hear it in the music, in the way I sang and the choices I made."DeMent is quick to credit Akhmatova (and the translators whose work formed the album's lyrics, Babette Deutsch and Lyn Coffin) for the album's beauty and magic."All of the poems, particularly Babettes translations, just felt like songs to me from the get go," says DeMent. "The first four or five I did, the melodies came while I was reading them the first time. That still mystifies me. My gut sense is that they were songs, already. I think she wrote them that way, and Babette picked up on that. Theyflowed like that. I dont think there's any getting around that the music was already in the poems."There's no getting around that the music is in DeMent, too. Twenty-three years after her debut, she's creating some of the most poignant music of her career, bridging two seemingly disparate worlds with every note.

Jesse Cook



I want to take people to places they havent been. Jesse Cook, Juno winning master guitarist, known for his intoxicating fusion of world music, has travelled the globe looking for sounds that resonate with him. I like finding common ground for different music traditions, a space where music from around the world can come together. Born in Paris to Canadian parents he started guitar lessons after moving back to Canada. My teacher played flamenco. Then, when Id visit my dad in France, he was living next door to Nicolas Reyes, the singer of the Gipsy Kings. I saw gipsy kids on the corner playing that way too. It was as if the world conspired to get me interested in this style and I was hooked. It was when he heard the Paco de Lucia, Al Di Meola, John McLaughlin album, Friday Night in San Francisco that the die was cast. I was captivated by the sheer virtuosity and freedom, that people could play whatever they wanted, creating in that space between jazz and flamenco

Graham Nash



"This Path Tonight" is the new studio album and collection of 10 original songs from Graham Nash. Produced by Shane Fontayne, this is Nash's first solo record of new music in fourteen years. The album is one of reflection and transition of a singer-songwriter whose career (the Hollies, CSN, CSNY) has spanned more than five decades and counting. Graham Nash is a two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductee and two-time Songwriter Hall of Fame Inductee, Grammy Award winner, a New York Times best-selling author, and Officer of the Order of the British Empire (O.B.E.)Critics are talking about This Path Tonight: "Trace elements of the same passion that drove him through his work with The Hollies and then Crosby, Stills & Nash (and sometimes Young) are clearly audible on This Path Tonight, though the Blackpool-born singer is obviously in a very different place now. This Path Tonight is simply Nash continuing to be as present as possible for everything he experiences and recording the results. It's what he does." NPR"It's a major time of change for Nash . . . Nash's focus is on This Path Tonight, produced by former Lone Justice member and Bruce Springsteen sideman Fontayne, which catches the British vocalist on a creative high, inspired significantly by the new love in his life." - BILLBOARD"A starburst of glorious harmony . . . the thought occurs that This Path Tonight could be Nash's very own Blood On The Tracks . . ." - UNCUT"Longtime Nash listeners will find plenty to satisfy them here" - MOJO"All the elements you'd want are there: acoustic guitars, harmonicas, harmonies . . . and that Mancunian accent" - SHINDIG"The path navigated by the folk-rock veteran still in fine voice is the road to rediscovery . . . With producer Shane Fontayne adding dimension and tension to the music, Nash's first album of originals in 14 years is marked by hope . . ." - BOSTON GLOBE
