Last Minute Monday: Songwriters Showcase
Paul Brill - Composer/Singer-songwriter Paul Brill's latest recording, HARPOONER, along with his original compositions for several award-winning films, TV series and two NPR themes show that youthful adventures as an herbal smokes salesman, street performer, valet, corporate errand boy, and even a marine biology instructor can serve the creative spirit well.
Paul has received 3 EMMY AWARD nominations for his film scores Brill recently collaborated with Rock legends U2 on the HBO film, "Burma Soldier," composing a new string arrangement for an acoustic version of their classic song, "Walk On." He scored the hit documentary, "Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work" (IFC), the recently released "Page One: Inside the New York Times," as well as Christy Turlington Burns' directorial debut, "No Woman, No Cry," on which he collaborated with songwriter Martha Waignwright, and the film adaptation of the best-selling book, "Freakonomics" (Magnolia Pictures).
Karlie Bruce - “Karlie Bruce’s voice is what makes the modest "Paperback Lover" so memorable. It's one of the most alluring instruments you'll hear this or any year.” -88.1 KDHX.
In September 2012, Australian born, Brooklyn-based songwriter Karlie Bruce released her highly anticipated debut LP, "Paperback Lover," alongside long time band-mates, bassist Derek Nievergelt (Robin McKelle), drummer Brian Chase (Yeah Yeah Yeahs), and guitarist and often-collaborator, Chris Parrello (Things I Wonder).
Milton - "He has the pitch and rhythm to carry the day, and his sophisticated lyrics keep listeners coming back for more." -The New York Times
"The one-named folksinger knows what he's doing." -NPR
Matt Ray - Performing songs from his brand new release "Songs For The Anonymous" (Scarlet Shame Records)
Bliss Blood & Al Street - Their songs are erotic, sensual, stripped-down rhapsodies to longing, love, heartbreak, and secret desires, and tap into musical styles from across the sound spectrum, from flamenco to jazz to punk rock to North African music, anchored by Al Street's lyrical, virtuosic guitar, and Bliss Blood's dreamy, cinematic, and deeply amorous lyrics.
Al Street is a master of style and of the guitar itself. He has played at the world's top festivals, and can be heard on the Major Motion Picture "American Gangster" soundtrack, as well as "Three Days of Rain" with Grammy winner Bob Belden. Al Street has traveled to Venezuela, Honduras, Peru and Syria as a U.S. Department of State Jazz Ambassador.
