Alexis P. Suter
Artist

Friday, September 20th | The Linda

When the great Bluesman B.B. King first heard Alexis P Suter sing, he was visibly impressed and said so after her opening set for him at BB Kings in NYC. Shaking his head in wonder, in his characteristic way, he remarked, “…It’s a rare thing to share the stage with great talent like that young lady.” Alexis has earned similar honors from other well-known musicians and performers including Dan Aykroyd and Levon Helm of The Band.

The Gibson Brothers at WEXT
WEXT

When is a bluegrass band not a bluegrass band? Well, sometimes when The Gibson Brothers play as the "Mockingbird" band, they are playing their brand of country rock, complete with electric guitars and drums. We had the chance to hang with Leigh and Eric with a few bandmates who then proceeded to play songs from their new album as an electrified country rock band, but in an acoustic setting.

In fact, Eric let on that this session has the first and only time (so far) that they have played "Lay Your Body Down" as an acoustic set up.  Let's rock Gibson Brother-style.

When you're lucky enough to work at a place where you talk to musicians, you get excited. It's easy to have a good experience talking with the people whose music you enjoy. It's even easier to tell random people how much you enjoyed the company of those musicians and the music they made. The problem, of course, is that it's easy to get hyperbolic and lost in the message.

When Leonard Cohen died in November 2016, the enigmatic icon left behind a catalog of dark, thoughtful treasures — 14 studio albums' worth of bleakly soulful, eminently quotable poetry. With help from an assortment of past collaborators, including his singer-songwriter son Adam, Cohen is set to return with a new collection of missives from beyond the grave. Titled Thanks for the Dance, it's due out Nov. 22, with a teaser dropping today in the form of a short piece called "The Goal."

In this special dispatch from Paris, Keren Ann shows us around the artistic neighborhood Montmartre, which has inspired a lot of her writing and is the place she calls home, even though she's lived in many different places. (She was born in Israel, grew up for a bit in the Netherlands and lived in New York City.)
