But when it came to choosing alocation for Songs From The Road, it had to be New York. The singer and thecity have history. Almost two decades have passed since Dana left her homein rural Florida and beat a path to the Big Apple. Stepping onto the meanstreets of the Lower East Side aged 19, she was an unknown singer with avoice and a dream, ready to slug it out on the city\u2019s bearpit jam-circuit.Since then, New York has been the backdrop to Dana\u2019s meteoric rise.There were the early buzz-sets in the city\u2019s late-night sweatboxes. The off-Broadway musical Love, Janis, which saw the multi-talented performer playthe iconic Janis Joplin. Followed by the endless shows and sessions all acrosstown. No wonder, then, that for Songs From The Road, the Highline Ballroomon West 16th Street was the perfect fit \u2013 and the singer was received like alocal hero.Released in 2014 on Ruf Records, Songs From The Road is the latest inthe German label\u2019s famous series of live albums, with Dana following in thehallowed footsteps of legends including Luther Allison, Jeff Healey and theRoyal Southern Brotherhood. As ever, the Songs From The Road concept isn\u2019tabout overdubs, Auto-Tune or opulent production, but the honest bottling ofthe two-way energy that only occurs when great artists go nose-to-nose withtheir fans. It\u2019s hard to imagine a performer who deserves the treatment morethan Dana: a vocalist who means every note, every night.A live show by the Dana Fuchs Band is an assault on all the senses. Assuch, comprised in Songs From The Road\u2019s two-disc pack, you\u2019ll find an audioCD capturing the soul power of that classic set on March 14th, 2014, plus aDVD, directed by Kevin Mackall. Prowling the stage, pouring her heart intothe microphone and owning every song on the setlist, you won\u2019t question thewisdom of the UK\u2019s Classic Rock Magazine, who famously declared Dana\u2019sonce-in-a-generation voice as \u201cjuke-joint dirty and illicit, evoking Janis Joplin,Mick Jagger and a cigarette butt bobbing in a glass of bourbon\u2026\u201dYou won\u2019t take your eyes\/ears off her, but Songs From The Road is farfrom a one-woman show. At the Highline Ballroom, Dana\u2019s performance wastaken to even greater heights by her stellar cast of players. On guitar andbacking vocals, give a big hand to long-time wingman and co-songwriter, JonDiamond: the former session ace who gave the singer an engine-room shortlyafter her arrival in New York. Matt Beck (guitars), Jack Daley (bass), PeteLevin (keys) and Joe Daley (drums) provide the thrilling musical canvass,while the so-called Screaming Sirens (aka. Elaine Caswell, Nicki Richards andBette Sussman) dovetail with Dana\u2019s lead vocal to create a wall of sound thatrattles your speakers.Yet it\u2019s the songs that are the true stars on the night. By this point, threestudio albums into their writing partnership, Dana and Jon have amassed asolid-gold back catalogue, and Songs From The Road mines some of their verybest nuggets. Long-term fans will be delighted to get reacquainted with TellMe I\u2019m Not Drinking and Sad Salvation: formative songs that date back to theDana Fuchs\u2019 Band\u2019s 2003 debut album, Lonely For A Lifetime. Film nuts whocaught Dana\u2019s feted turn as Sadie in Julie Taymor\u2019s highly acclaimed Beatlesmovie, Across The Universe, will adore the closing cover of Don\u2019t Let Me Down.Those who came onboard with 2011\u2019s Love To Beg, meanwhile, will bethrilled to find cuts from that album including Set It On Fire, Summersong anda cover of Otis Redding\u2019s I\u2019ve Been Loving You Too Long. And of course, theHighline setlist had to have a healthy smattering from 2013\u2019s Bliss Avenue: thecareer-best third album that Dana once noted \u201creally purged my soul in astarker, more naked way, both lyrically and musically\u201d. You won\u2019t disputethat after hearing the band\u2019s powerhouse live readings of those classic songs,which include Livin\u2019 On Sunday, Handful Too Many, So Hard To Move andVagabond Wind.Since the noisy birth of rock \u2018n\u2019 roll, New York has hosted hundreds ofwere-you-there concerts by a roll-call of favourite sons, from The Ramones atCBGBs to The Velvet Underground at The Factory. Now, with Songs From TheRoad, Dana Fuchs has chalked up another entry in the NYC annals and stakedher claim as the city\u2019s most exciting adopted daughter. So start spreading thenews.

His first major credit was the title song for the play Butterflies Are Free; the song was eventually used in the movie version as well.In 1971, he wrote the music and new lyrics for Godspell, for which he won several awards including two Grammys. This was followed by the English texts, in collaboration with Leonard Bernstein, for Bernstein's Mass, which opened the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C.The following year, he wrote the music and lyrics for Pippin and two years later, The Magic Show. Next were the music and lyrics for The Baker's Wife, which closed before reaching Broadway after a disastrous out-of-town tryout tour in 1976. However, the cast album went on to attain cult status, leading to several subsequent productions, including a London revival directed by Trevor Nunn in 1988.Mr. Schwartz's next Broadway project was a musical version of Studs Terkel's Working, which he adapted and directed, winning the Drama Desk Award as best director, and contributed four songs to the score. He also co-directed the television production, which was presented as part of the PBS \"American Playhouse\" series.Next came songs for a one-act musical for children, The Trip, and a children's book, The Perfect Peach. He then wrote music for three of the songs of an Off-Broadway revue, Personals, and lyrics to Charles Strouse's music for Rags.In 1991, Mr. Schwartz wrote the music and lyrics for the popular Children of Eden, book by John Caird. He then began working in film, collaborating with composer Alan Menken on the scores for the Disney animated features Pocahontas, for which he received two Academy Awards, and The Hunchback of Notre Dame. He also provided songs for DreamWorks' first animated feature, The Prince of Egypt, for which he won another Academy Award for the song When You Believe. Mr. Schwartz provided music and lyrics for the original television musical, Geppetto, seen on The Wonderful World of Disney.In 2003, Schwartz returned to Broadway in earnest, as composer and lyricist for Wicked, a musical based on Gregory Maguire's novel Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West, which uses L. Frank Baum's Oz characters as a base for a tale of two witches. Schwartz won a Grammy Award for his work as composer\/lyricist and producer of Wicked's cast recording.Ironically, Schwartz has won every major award in his field (3 Oscars, 4 Grammys, 3 Drama Desk Awards and a self-described \"tiny handful of tennis trophies\") except the Tony Award, which his scores have been nominated for numerous times but have never won.","featuredImage":"http:\/\/assets.allamericanmusic.com\/images\/36543_h_0.jpg","feeRange":"please contact"}

His career began with the unorthodox Songs for a New World, whose original off-Broadway production ran for 28 performances at the WPA Theater in New York City in 1995. The show sits on the boundary between musical and song cycle: it is a series of largely disjoint songs with (unlike a musical) no plot or characters that continue from song to song, but the songs and production themselves are highly theatrical and character-driven. He now has 6 major works under his belt, including Songs for a New World. His sophomore effort was the Tony award winning Parade, a musical about the 1913 murder of Mary Phagan and Leo Frank's subsequent lynching, which ran on Broadway from December 17, 1998 to February 28, 1999. Brown's third work, The Last Five Years, is a powerful two-person song-cycle about a failing relationship, which is unique in that the story is told in two directions at once: Jamie, the husband, tells the story from his perspective chronologically, from the beginning to the end, whereas Cathy, the wife, tells her own perspective, beginning at the end and working her way back. The two characters exist in the same moment only once, at their wedding, which occurs exactly in the middle of the play. He contributed five original songs to the country cover-heavy musical version of Urban Cowboy, which ran on Broadway from March 27, 2003 to May 18, 2003 and was a Tony nominee.In 2005 Brown released a solo album, Wearing Someone Else's Clothes, consisting of previously unreleased tracks, cut songs, unfinished melodies, and other original compositions. The composer plays and sings his own pieces in this release. Also in 2005 came his Chanukah Suite, an 8-minute choral fanfare in three parts, drawing upon the influence of Leonard Bernstein and adding unorthodox elements like rock-and-roll rhythms.Most recently, he has gone back to the stage with 13, a new musical which premiered on Jan. 7, 2007, at the Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles.Brown's music sensibility fuses pop-rock stylings with theatrical lyrics. An accomplished pianist, Brown has often served as music director, conductor, and pianist for his own productions.Brown has many trademarks in his composing style. His piano music is often extremely rhythmically challenging; his sheet music is released in a mostly unmodified format, posing many challenges to anyone who tries to play it. His songs are by no means easy to sing, either, with his choral music including many complex and unconventional harmonies and his songs (for men, in particular) covering a very wide vocal range. Most of his songs are written in AABA' format, the exceptions coming mostly in his show Parade. Perhaps most characteristic are his love duets; all three (I'd Give it All for You from Songs, The Next 10 Minutes from L5Y, and All the Wasted Time from Parade) are written in a very distinct format: male-female-both, compound time with a hemiola in the duet section, and two of the three end with the couple singing the same pitch.","featuredImage":"http:\/\/assets.allamericanmusic.com\/images\/36557_h_0.jpg","feeRange":"please contact"}

{"key":"81197","name":"Alfie Boe","bio":"When Alfie began his studies at the Royal College of Music as an opera singer he was encouraged to explore this beautiful classical folk music. As he immersed himself in the history of these arias he was immediately hooked on the tradition it was steeped in & his love affair had begun! \"When I'm performing these songs it's the music and the words that are telling the story and that's where the passion comes from. I really connect with the people and their love and emotion for their homeland,\" explains Alfie.Alfie's trajectory was set when he left home to join the D'Oyly Carte Touring Opera Company. It was a fine experience but it wasn't enough for the young Boe. He wanted to learn his art thoroughly and left for London enrolling at the Royal College of Music. After graduating he joined the The National Opera Studio and then went on to the Villar Young Artists Programme at The Royal Opera House.It has been well documented that Alfie's first break came when Baz Luhrmann, after spending two years looking for one of the main leads for his controversial production of Puccini's 'La Boheme' approached Alfie for the role. His performance on Broadway led to him winning a Tony Award which sits comfortably next to his John McCormack Young Voice Award and Lyric Tenor of the World Audience Award.There have been many highlights in his career but the last 12 months have been exceptional. Alfie has enjoyed two chart topping classical albums and now finds himself on the eve of releasing his third studio album; he was nominated for a Classical Brit Award for 'Best Album' sharing the category with Sir Paul McCartney and Sting; he's toured the length and breadth of the country; performed at the Royal Albert Hall with Lesley Garratt and Sir Willard White; performed in a sell-out run of the English National Opera's production of Kismet alongside Michael Ball and performed at Clarence House where he graciously accepted the role as Ambassador for HRH's Arts & Kids Foundation.","featuredImage":"http:\/\/assets.allamericanmusic.com\/images\/81197_h_0.jpg","feeRange":"10,000 - 30,000"}
