Brandi Carlile Owns Her Moment During Emotional Madison Square Garden Gig

Brandi Carlile Owns Her Moment During Emotional Madison Square Garden Gig
“It is impossible for me to describe what this feels like right now,” Brandi Carlile said, addressing the crowd for the first time, three songs into her sold-out show at Madison Square Garden on Saturday night. Then the singer, performing what might have been the largest, or at least the most high-profile, headlining set of her 20-some-odd-year career, broke down in tears before dedicating her next song — “The Story” — to the crowd. “There is not a nerdy little outcast with a guitar in the world that doesn’t dream of

Meryl Streep, Joaquin Phoenix, Roger Deakins Honored at Toronto Film Festival’s First Tribute Gala
The Toronto Film Festival rolled out the red carpet Monday night for its inaugural Tiff Tribute Gala, a fundraiser and awards-season launcher that feted a select group of cinema changemakers and included both inspiring and surprising moments.

Held at the historic Fairmont Royal York Hotel, the packed event was hosted by Toronto thesps Sarah Gadon (“American Woman”) and Stephan James (“If Beale Street Could Talk”), both alumni of Tiff Rising Stars, one of many career-boosting programs the not-for-profit Tiff puts on year round.

Following a greeting from Tiff co-heads Cameron Bailey and Joanna Vicente — who together decided to consolidate previous tribute/fundraiser events into a single high-profile festival centerpiece for maximum impact — “The Goldfinch” director John Crowley presented the Variety Artisan Award to Roger Deakins.

“I am honored to make a great artist greatly uncomfortable,” Crowley joked, referring to the legendary cinematographer’s dislike of the spotlight.

Songs of Joni Mitchell: Notable Country Covers by Dolly Parton, Wynonna
Painter, poet and musician Joni Mitchell turns 75 years old today. Her artistry has encompassed pop, rock, folk and jazz, earning varying degrees of praise and criticism, especially for her more experimental, jazz-centric works, but she remains, unquestionably, one of the most influential songwriters of the past 50 years.

Born Roberta Joan Anderson in Fort MacLeod, Alberta, Canada, and raised in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, she began performing in public, accompanying herself on ukulele, in 1963. In August of that year, she appeared on Ckbi-tv in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan, as a one-time replacement for a

Review: Prince’s ‘Piano & A Microphone 1983’ is a Revealing Snapshot of the Pop Genius in His Prime

Review: Prince’s ‘Piano & A Microphone 1983’ is a Revealing Snapshot of the Pop Genius in His Prime
In 1983, Prince was a budding genius on a historic run that would eventually redefine pop. A year earlier he’d exploded into the Top 10 with his synth-funk double-lp opus, 1999, and he was already hard at work on Purple Rain, the album/film project that would render a version of his life story in Beatles-size proportions.

One day, in the midst of all this, he sat down in his Chanhassen, Minnesota, home studio and knocked out a demo, just him at the piano. Most of what he recorded were works-in-progress,

Inside Prince’s Brilliant ‘Piano & a Microphone 1983’ Album

“I was always hoping that these recordings were still around because of the feeling that’s in them,” Don Batts, Prince’s personal recording engineer in the early Eighties, tells Rolling Stone. He’s reflecting on a demo cassette he made with the artist released Friday as Piano & a Microphone 1983, 34 minutes of Prince sketching out song ideas by himself. “It’s just him pounding this idea out so he could come back later and fill in the blanks. These were his little grooves.”

Beginning with an airy recital of the “When Doves Cry” B side,

Prince’s ‘Mary Don’t You Weep’ Video Tackles Gun Violence

A new video for Prince‘s passionate cover of the spiritual “Mary Don’t You Weep” focuses on the impact of gun violence on American youth, augmented by the artist’s own words. After showing gun injury and fatality statistics among children, the video displays a quote from the Purple One taken from another video he’d made for his song “Baltimore,” written in the wake of the 2015 death of Freddie Gray: “The system is broken. It’s going to take the young people to fix it this time. We need new ideas,

Hear Prince’s Piano Demo of Previously Unheard Song ‘Why the Butterflies’
Prince croons, squeals and shrieks on the meditative “Why the Butterflies,” a previously unheard demo featured on the singer’s upcoming posthumous release, Piano and a Microphone 1983. The alluring sketch, which premiered at Noisey, is one of three songs on the nine-track set – along with “Wednesday” and “Cold Coffee & Cocaine” – that have never been issued in any form.

“Why the Butterflies,” like the entire album, is a 1983 cassette recording tracked in 1983 at Prince’s Kiowa Trail home studio in Chanhassen, Minnesota and recently unearthed from his Paisley Park vault. The

Hear Prince’s Sparse ’17 Days’ From ‘Piano and a Microphone’ LP
Prince eases into a funky piano groove, asks for the lights to be turned down, lets loose a James Brown–styled “Good Gawd,” beat-boxes a little and then delivers a passionate rendition of “17 Days,” the B-side to “When Doves Cry,” on the latest recording to emerge from his upcoming Piano & a Microphone 1983 archival release. It’s a naturally sparser arrangement than the one he recorded with the Revolution — he sings the synthesizer part in falsetto — as the musician yowls lyrics about a breakup between jazzy piano fills.

Concert Review: Brandi Carlile Covers Aretha, Channels Elton in Moving Greek Show
Brandi Carlile is well used to both covering and being covered. Last year, she was the recipient of a tribute album that had Adele, Dolly Parton and Pearl Jam, among others, doing her songs. She can give as well as she gets, and on her current tour, she’s dropped in everything from “Madman Across the Water” to “Stand By Your Man.”

Friday night at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles, she did bravura vocal turns on two of the songs that have turned into tour staples for her in recent weeks, Joni Mitchell’s “A Case of You” and Led Zeppelin’s “Babe, I’m Gonna Leave You.” But, given the week’s sad news events, she was saving the most literally respectful for last.

For the encore, Carlile invited My Morning Jacket main man Jim James up to duet on two Aretha Franklin standards, “Do Right Woman, Do Right Man” followed by “Respect.
