The All I Wanna Do singer looked radiant on the red carpet in nature-inspired flowing printed on-shoulder gown.Her new beau, who is a guitarist and vocalist in the band Smokestack made his first public appearance opting for an all-black outfit.
In 2007 she adopted her first son Wyatt and in June 2010 Levi James joined their family.
The Grammy Award winning singer has recently appeared as a mentor on American Idol.
Last time out with the old-world, mandolin extravaganza to deliver a (largely) instrumental set of guitar-based tunes to evoke a smarmy, 60s lounge-vibe with Duane Eddy accompaniment.
Blasting out the set in ten days, Breit called upon friends to provide select overdubs, but what we have here is essentially Breit concocting his own experiments in vintage sounds much like Neil Young once did (in a different vein) with the Shocking Pinks. While one digs (and really, no other word is as appropriate) what Breit has done with this recording, after four or five songs it tends to blend into one extended jam of righteous coolness.
She has also garnered several nominations at the Blues Music Awards from The Blues Foundation. Joining Breit on this all-instrumental album are Vincent Henry (Amy Winehouse, Tom Waits), Michael Ward Bergeman (Yo Yo Ma), Davide Di Renzo (Cassandra Wilson) and Gary Diggins (R Murray Schaffer).
Without doubt, Kevin Breit is one of Canadas most intriguing musicians.
You better believe Earl and the Broadcasters are digging deep on this recording. Written by Nashville's Pat Mc Laughlin and featuring veteran session-man Charlie Mc Coy, the song yodels, slides and two-steps through the country music foothills, peaking with the raw emotions of a lifestyle that's increasingly rare. In my opinion Gordon channels the spirit and Chi-town style of early J. (Big Boy) Brown's guttural bleats and squawks that put a big smile on your face.
Produced by Swedish blues guitar player Staffan Astner, Afternoon in Paris promises the right mix of groovy blues and soulful jazz (with a touch of Swedish folk melody) and shows Yana Bibbs musical range, influence and depth. Whilst wrote Blues fans would be wise not to overlook. On my first listen (and my opinion has never changed on repeated listens), this is the Duke Robillard I experienced in 1984 in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, at B. The recording techniques draw from old-school, sparse mike placement and modern recording equipment that will give you an idea how the masters might sound today. Take that and how damn much younger Duke sounds vocally.
Always a sucker for a bit of Yakety Sax (or yakety axe), I Got Em Too is a favoured romp.
However, other pieces appear little more than excuse for playful song titles as evidenced by Cozy With Rosy and Zing Zong Song, which initially borrows from theme, before sliding into Los Straitjackets territory. None of which diminishes the obvious skill and artistry Breit possesses, nor the encompassing appeal of this recording. Earl has worked with his band The Broadcasters for almost 30 years. This album is dedicated to the memory of long-time Broadcaster bass player Jim Mouradian.
