NEW AMERICAN TROUBADOURS TRIPLE BILL
Three of America’s finest young musicians, providing an evening of brilliant music, entertaining repartee and all round good vibes.Please note the show will start at 8.15.
ROBBY HECHT (USA)
“Robby’s an intuitively strong and gentle singer and his songs rock you in a cradle... you feel that everything will come round right.” Anais Mitchell
Robby grew up in Knoxville, Tennessee, listening to Paul Simon, Jim Croce, Dan Fogelberg and other classic singer/songwriters. After graduation, he moved to Paris with a friend and busked on the streets to make money.
After returning to the states, Hecht moved to San Francisco where he fronted the folk/swing band All Day Radio and then settled in Nashville to pursue his songwriting career. He toured and wrote relentlessly over the next several years, winning the Great Waters Music Festival Songwriter Competition in 2006, the Kerrville Folk Festival New Folk Competition in 2008 and the Telluride Bluegrass Festival Troubadour Contest in 2010—along the way garnering comparisons to early James Taylor, Paul Simon, and Amos Lee. Like these celebrated artists, Robby Hecht is a unique voice—one that is stirring, instantly recognizable and truly original.
His first album ‘Late Last Night’ became an instant classic and included the memorable ‘Freight Train Lady’. This was followed by ‘Last of the Long Days’ which cemented his reputation as a musician in the major league.
PETER BRADLEY ADAMS
Peter Bradley Adams was formerly one half of the duo, eastmountainsouth, signed by Robbie Robertson (of The Band) to DreamWorks Records in 2002. Their single, “You Dance” was a no1 AAA radio hit (top 5 for 2 months) in 2003 and eastmountainsouth performed on Late Night with Conan O'Brien. Eastmountainsouth performed their last show in September 2004 at the Hollywood Bowl with Shelby Lynne and Lyle Lovett. It was not long after that when Adams decided to venture on his own and become a solo artist. Peter's arrangement and interpretation of Stephen Foster's "Hard Times", the opening track on the eastmountainsouth CD, appeared in Cameron Crowe's film, "Elizabethtown" and also was included on the soundtrack album. Peter's songs and music from eastmountainsouth (as well as solo) has appeared in over 30 films and television shows in the US (including One Tree Hill, Smallville, The Mentalist and Alias). Years later sales of eastmountainsouth’s self-titled and only release rank in the top 20 in Amazon.com sales under the Alternative Folk category.
Peter is now a highly sought after solo artist and has released four solo records as well as an EP with his side project, "Down Like Silver". He currently lives in Brooklyn, NY.
"The best of the young American songwriters, a voice full of feeling and a big, big heart. And the balls to say what he thinks.” Boston Phoenix
David Berkeley is a romantic realist, known for his ability to look at the human condition in all its complexity and give us luminous songs full of sunshine and anguish, melancholy and delight On Some Kind of Cure, his fourth studio album, Berkeley delivers some of his most heartfelt tunes blending folk, rock, and classic pop to create timeless expressions of love and longing. Produced by Will Robertson the album features Peter Bradley Adams on piano, Kevin O’Donnell (Andrew Bird) on drums, Kim Taylor (Over the Rhine) on background vocals, and Lex Price (Mindy Smith) on mandolin and guitars. Berkeley’s philosophic and poetic lyrics have always set him apart from other singers of his generation.
