Diana Krall is a jazz musician who achieved crossover success with her sultry, understated vocals and her bop piano playing. Canadian born, Diana Krall is a jazz musician whose breakthrough came in 1996 with the album All for You. She received her first Grammy Award for 1999's When I Look in Your Eyes. In all, Krall has been awarded five Grammys, and has been nominated 13 times.
On The Girl in the Other Room (2004), Krall included some of her own compositions for the first time, as well as songs written or co-written by British singer-songwriter husband Elvis Costello. Krall has toured worldwide, mostly with her quartet -drums, bass, guitar, in addition to her piano. She's performed at Carnegie Hall, and at the White House for President Barack Obama, among various other venues.
“So much of what we do as artists is a combination of personal experience and imagination, and how that all creeps into your work is not so linear,” says Krall about her approach to songwriting.
Guest Artist: The Well Pennies
THE WELL PENNIES are a Folk/Pop duo consisting of husband and wife team Bryan & Sarah Vanderpool. The pair met in Boston while supporting each other’s solo sets at popular venues like Club Passim, Lizard Lounge, and The Middle East. They fell in love, ran away to Los Angeles and released their debut EP that was met with critical acclaim from press like Interview Magazine, Under the Radar, Daily Unsigned, and countless others. Taking influence from THE LUMINEERS, PASSENGER, and SUFJAN STEVENS, the pair combine their signature pop melodies and tight harmonies with beautifully produced lush string arrangements. The band explains, “Our goal is to write songs that inspire something – however simple – to smile, to love, to get out and experience life.”
After a recent transplant from Los Angeles to Des Moines, Iowa, The Well Pennies are currently organizing a tour of concerts with local youth orchestras to promote their latest release, "ENDLINGS”, the long awaited and highly anticipated LP from The Well Pennies that was released on January 27th, 2015. In 1936, a Tasmanian Tiger died in the Hobart Zoo in Tasmania. He was the very last one…an endling. The Well Pennies explore this topic of extinction and how it relates to all aspects of life. "The album is about protecting what’s important,” the band explains. “Not only are the environment and animals endangered in this day and age; hope, human connection and artistry are becoming more of a rarity. And if we don’t value the things that are most important to us, they will become harder and harder to find.”
The Well Pennies also spearheaded “BEATLES REIMAGINED” featuring Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros and 9 other up and coming indie bands. It was met with critical acclaim from Rolling Stone, New York Times, LA Times, Huffington Post and countless others. The Well Pennies version of All My Loving was chosen as the opening track on the album and caught the attention of USA Today, Under the Radar Magazine, and NYLON Magazine praising the track for its uniqueness and creativity.
