Country Music Tour

 Sarah Darling Tour
in March 2019 

Following the release of her new single ‘Call Me’, country singer-songwriter Sarah Darling announces a string of tour dates taking place in March 2019. In support of her upcoming 5th studio album ‘Wonderland’ (released March 1st 2019) Sarah will play concerts in Glasgow, London, Norwich, Manchester, Liverpool, Bristol, Brighton and Leeds. Tickets available now via Sarah’s official website: www.sarahdarling.com.

Speaking about performing in her home-away-from-home, Sarah said, “I’m so excited to be returning to the UK to share my new music. Doubly excited since many of the tracks on ‘Wonderland’ are “made in the UK” with UK co-writers and producers! Britain has a special place in my heart, and the audiences have always been so warm and welcoming.”

‘Call Me’, released earlier this week, signposts the latest stop on a journey that Sarah has been undertaking towards the most promising and anticipated album of her career. Sarah describes ‘Wonderland’ as a transformative time in her life, one that has allowed her to experiment in new sonic territories.

“The whole concept of my ‘Wonderland’ album was to explore a brand new world artistically,” explains Sarah. “Because of my connection to the U.K., I thought ‘what better place to bring my Nashville roots to be creative’. I think it’s good as an artist to stretch the boundaries, because you are always growing and that’s how you find new magic and move forward to wonderful, new places.”

A host of exceptional artists came on board to collaborate with Sarah on ‘Wonderland’, including writers from both the US and UK.  Working with these songwriters has been a dream for Sarah, who took the challenge of writing with guests in her stride.

“I’ve been in England for most of the year co-writing and working with producers. On this project, it’s really about new friends and new ideas. I literally would walk into a co-writing session, and had never met the person before. It’s so incredibly exciting to be finishing up the album, and to say I’ve recorded this in a different country.

“It’s a true reflection of me, and the current ride I’m on. Not to mention, I have new friends and memories for life. Music is about the connection. I’m so proud to share this trans-Atlantic collaboration. It’s the greatest adventure of my life to date!”

Sarah will be performing songs from ‘Wonderland’ for UK fans at the following locations on her 8-date tour.

Great New Album

Jeff Goldblum & The Mildred Snitzer Orchestra Album

Look out for a fabulous new album by Jeff Goldblum and his long-time band The Mildred Snitzer Orchestra, entitled ‘The Capitol Studios Sessions’ from Decca. The debut album from jazz pianist, Jeff Goldblum features guest vocals from Imelda May, Haley Reinhart and Sarah Silverman.

Goldblum has been playing the piano since he was a child, and has performed with his jazz band at venues in Los Angeles and New York City over the past few decades. When he’s not filming, the actor hosts a weekly jazz variety show at LA’s Rockwell Table and Stage. Frequented by locals and A-listers alike, the show intersperses Goldblum’s love of jazz with his passion and skills at improvised comedy.

The atmosphere and energy of these shows is captured perfectly on this album, which Jeff credits to producer Larry Klein (Joni Mitchell, Herbie Hancock, Madeleine Peyroux). For the recording, Larry recreated the buzz of The Rockwell at the legendary Capitol Studios. The studio was transformed into a jazz club – food and drink was served to an invited live studio audience of Rockwell regulars, friends and family.

This album lives in that magical area where artists and audiences meet. There is a joyful sense of anything-can-happen and a spirit of creative generosity – in how Jeff speaks to his fans, how he accompanies guest singers and soloists, and especially in how Jeff comperes.  

To Jeff, his role within the context of a jazz band is a seamless connection with his acting. He says, “I love improvising and that feeling of communication and interplay. It’s one of the cornerstones of my acting technique. I see my music in the same way.”

‘The Capitol Studios Sessions’ is the realisation of this idea: jazz and standards presented in a manner that dares to be high-spirited and to make you feel good.

The repertoire includes favourite ‘60s jazz numbers ‘Cantaloupe Island’ and ’I Wish I Knew (How It Would Feel To Be Free)’, the 1940s classic ‘Straighten Up & Fly Right’ with guest vocals from Irish superstar singer and songwriter Imelda May, ‘My Baby Just Cares For Me’ from 1930, featuring American songstress Haley Reinhart and the 1920s song ’Me And My Shadow’ sung by US comedian and actress, Sarah Silverman. The band are joined by the extraordinary Grammy-nominated trumpeter Till Brönner.

Jeff Goldblum and The Mildred Snitzer Orchestra deliver the feel and the swing, and they make it fun, funny, and familiar. Those are words not often associated with jazz, though they still can be, and with this album we are reminded of that.

Farewell London Tour

Farewell London Tour for José Carreras

Giles Cooper Entertainment has announced that Kenwood House, overlooking Hampstead Heath in North London, will host a stellar line-up of live music concerts in summer 2019 within the splendour of its breath-taking gardens.

The Heritage Live Concert Series will take place across the weekend of the 14th – 16th June bringing the best in live music to the beautiful outdoor settings at one of the capital’s most significant historic properties. The first concert announced at Kenwood House is a London exclusive – legendary tenor José Carreras. The show will be extra special as José Carreras says goodbye to London as part of his farewell tour.

An iconic figure, José Carreras has sung over 60 roles from operas by Verdi and Puccini and created memorable productions including the famed Franco Zeffirelli production of La Bohèmeat the Metropolitan Opera.

Alongside a discography that includes over 160 recordings that range across classical and popular music, earning him several Gold and Platinum discs with over 80 million records sold in total, Carreras is one of the most accomplished tenors in history.

Starting his career in 1970 in the Gran Teatre del Liceu in his native Barcelona with Nabucco and Lucrezia Borgia, his meteoric musical career resulted in early debuts at the world’s most prestigious opera stages – The Metropolitan Opera in New York, the Royal Opera House in London and the Vienna State Opera.

Carreras has also performed in several operatic movies and has won awards including Grammys, BRITs, and Olivier Awards.  For millions, he is also revered for his role as one of the legendary Three Tenors, alongside Plácido Domingo and Luciano Pavarotti. The Three Tenors’ concerts created an immense impact on the world of Opera and wider popular culture, as the trio performed to over 2 billion people worldwide.

José Carreras will perform at Kenwood House with the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra, who will be conducted by David Giménez, who has been Maestro Carreras conductor for 25 years.

Since making his debut with the Hannover NDR Orchestra in 1994, he has appeared worldwide, leading the most prominent orchestras and soloists in venues like the Royal Albert Hall, Berlin Philharmonie, Salle Pleyel, Vienna Konzerthaus, Tokyo’s Suntory Hall, and at New York’s Carnegie Hall and Avery Fisher Hall.

During his career, David Giménez has conducted orchestras such as the Vienna Philharmonic, the London Symphony, the Philharmonia, Münchner Philharmoniker, Orchestre de Paris and Filarmonica della Scala. He has also appeared with soloists such as Yoyo Ma and Antonio Meneses.

Carreras will also be joined by rising star Christina Johnston. A prodigious talent, coloratura soprano Christina Johnston has been performing worldwide since she made her operatic debut in 2012 as Die Königin der Nacht Die Zauberflöte with the Prague State Opera and, soon afterwards as Adele Die Fledermaus at the same theatre.

Christina has sung as Olympia in Les Contes d’Hoffmann at the opera house in Kazan, Russia, and as Zerlina in Don Giovanni at the Estates Theatre in Prague.

Sixtyplusurfers Interview

Jay Osmond

By Jenny Itzcovitz

I was a big fan of The Osmonds in the 1970’s with a jumbo sized poster on my wall and all their albums in vinyl, so I was delighted to speak to Jay, pictured on the left with his brother Merrill. We talked about how they got started in their singing career, their friendship with Elvis Presley and Michael Jackson. He also told me about a fabulous concert coming up at The Union Chapel in London on 21st February 2019.

Jay is warm and friendly and I begin by asking him how old he was when he first started singing and performing with the Osmonds.

“I was 2½ years old when I first started singing with the Osmonds,” he reveals. “I was kind of a novelty act. My brothers were a trio and they sang really well together, and I was singing and making people laugh. But I was actually singing and performing on stage at just 3 years old. And I’ve been doing this for six decades now. That’s crazy isn’t it?” he muses.

“Walt Disney discovered us in Disneyland and he was our original mentor. He took the Osmond brothers and he trained us, and he taught us a song called ‘I want a girl’. We wore fake moustaches, and he had us go round Disneyland singing to all the people in the park. And he loved it so much that he put us on three television shows called ‘Disneyland After Dark’.

“Then Andy Williams’ father saw us on those television shows and said, “Oh Andy, you’ve got to see these boys.” So that’s when Andy Williams saw us, and he invited us onto his show. 

“When we were on the Andy Williams show they had us do something different every week. One week we were playing saxophones, the next week we were playing piano, another week we were dancing, then we were playing different musical instruments. We would be doing different things every week, so we learned a lot of stuff over the years. We were with Andy for 9 years.”

The Osmonds went on to work with Jerry Lewis for two years, then came to England to make their own shows.

“We came over to England and made a week long series of television shows for Shepherds Bush and the BBC,” explains Jay. “We put the whole show together and it was quite an ordeal. We took all the stuff that we had learned over the years and put it in these shows. We’ve done quite a lot of different things over the years. It’s crazy.”

I explain to Jay, that I was a big fan of the Osmonds as a teenager, with posters of the band on my wall and all their albums. I ask him what it was it like to be part of the first boy band and have such a big following of fans from all over the world?

“Did you really?” he laughs, sounding surprised that I was such a big fan. “It was really a compliment to be considered the first boy band. We were with The Jackson Five at one time and Michael said to us, “Okay, you guys win!” And we said, “What do you mean, we win?”

And he says, “You guys were the first boy band because we were watching you guys on The Andy Williams Show when you were just kids, and we were just kids too. And we were laughing and teasing each other about who was the first boy band, and it was such a fun time. But it was an honour to be called the first boy band.

“We also recorded our own instruments on our records. I played the drums, Merrill played the bass, Wayne played the guitar, and Donny was on the keyboard. So we played on most of our records. And people were trying to pigeonhole us saying, “Are you guys rock? Are you jazz? Are you disco? Are you gospel? Are you pop?”

“We’d say, we’re all of those things. We love all types of music. And so we played all different kinds of things, and we loved to write our own music. People over the years have tried to categorise us, but I don’t think you can.”

The Osmonds have released some fabulous songs as part of their long and varied career, and I ask Jay if he has any particular favourites that he likes to sing?

“My favourite is Crazy Horses because I sing it and wrote it,” he tells me. “But my real favourite is Let Me In from The Plan album. I like it because it has a double meaning, and we sing this in our Christmas show. It’s about love for each other, forgiving each other, and about the love that Jesus has for us. So it has a double meaning, and it’s such a big expression of love. It’s a wonderful song. So I think that’s my all time favourite song The Osmond brothers have ever sung.”

I ask him to tell me more about the song, Crazy Horses, which I always felt was quite a change of mood The Osmonds.

“Well for the brothers it wasn’t that big of a difference because we were really pretty heavy rockers, and Donny went off and did a bit more of the younger kind of pop songs. But the brothers were more rock and roll – that was what we were all about. And the song, we wrote it back in the early ‘70s, was about car pollution at the time.

“It was a protest song against pollution, and we felt that it was timely, because back in the early ‘70s there was a big problem with pollution before all the emissions stopped. So it was like Crazy Horses – the power of the horse power engines. That was what it was really about.”

We move on to talk about what The Osmonds are doing at the moment, and discuss Jay and Merrill’s London Concert in February at the Union Chapel in London.

“We love that venue,” says Jay. “We played there last year and it was such a beautiful venue. And I thought, man, we want to come back here and do another show. It was really cool. So we said sure, let’s go back and do that.

“There are so many beautiful venues in England and all over the UK, and this is  definitely one of them.”

I ask him what is so special about it?

“The aesthetics,” he explains. “We shot a little bit of a movie there and the lighting of it all. It’s a chapel and the sound was really good. And we thought the acoustics were really cool. So that was one of the reasons we chose that place.”

I ask him about touring and what he enjoys most about it.

“We’re always on the road. Well not always,” he jokes. “We do go home at times! But we travel a lot. I just know that it’s fun to perform with my brother, Merrill. And when we perform together, we’re really enjoying this time of our lives where we can just get on stage and sing.

“We call ourselves ‘The Original Osmonds’, and Merrill is the lead singer. He and I have been through so many things together, so we’re just going to be performing together. We’ll probably perform the rest of our lives because we’ve been doing it all our lives.”

I ask him about Jimmy and Donny, and where they fit in.

“Jimmy’s doing his own thing right now,” he explains. “We’re all very supportive of each other. We support Donny and Marie, we support Jimmy, and they support us.

“I think Jimmy is doing a couple of pantos, and he’s doing great. I think there’s a part of him that wishes we were all back together again. I think some of us kind of feel that, but we’re all doing our own thing and you’ve got to keep evolving. You’ve got to keep reinventing yourself.”

This tour will be just Merrill and Jay, and we talk about the songs they’ll be singing.

“We’ll be singing songs from our Vintage album that Merrill and I recorded, with all of our hits, and some of the songs from our other albums. We re-recorded them in a rock and roll way and called it the Vintage album. We’ll be doing a lot of these songs, sharing memories, showing videos and getting involved with the audience. It’s just a big celebration of fun,” he laughs. “And we’re looking forward to it.”

We talk about how he prepares for a tour and looks after his voice.

“You have to stay in shape,” he stresses. “But sometimes you can’t always keep your voice in good shape. You try your best, but there are times when you have to be careful and we have to protect it like a muscle. On the road you can really catch things, so you have to be careful when you are touring.”

I ask him what he enjoys most about performing live to an audience.

“The people make it so much fun for us and that’s what keeps us going – to see their response. Someone told me the other night, “Your songs are really our songs.” And I said, “Wow, that really means a lot to me.”

“Because these are our memories”, she said. “Your songs are our memories!” and I go, “Wow, I’m going to remember that.”

“It’s really something to see the audiences out there singing along with our songs too, because the audiences didn’t sing along so much back then with us in the ‘70s. So it’s really a lot of  fun.”

I wonder if he tends to keep things serious with Merrill while they are on the tour, or whether they have a good laugh.

“Oh, we have a great time,” he enthuses. “Merrill and I have been ‘on the road together buddies’ forever, and you have to make the road fun. You have to make it really fun. There’s pranks and you have to laugh when things go wrong. You just laugh. And there’s some hard things that go wrong, believe me, the road is not easy.

“Travel is the hardest part of what we do. Travel and the technical things are very tough stuff. The easy part is performing. It’s all the rest of the stuff that’s hard. So when we get up on stage and sing, and if everything is done and taken care of technically, we just love it,”

Away from the stage when he is not performing, Jay has found a practical hobby around the home.

“When I’m not performing, I love being a handy man,” he reveals. “I’ve never done that in my life before and it’s kind of fun. I’m learning how to fix things and break things, and then fix them back again! Then break them again. It’s crazy.”

I ask him if he’s collected any special musical souvenirs or mementos over the years that he’s been touring.

“Chuck Norris gave me something really cool to remember him by and Elvis Presley gave us a couple of things that were just wonderful. Different artists that have been touring with us too. Andy Williams wrote me a note. Bob Hope wrote something to the family. It’s the little things that I cherish.”

I try not to sound too awestruck when he mentions Elvis, and ask if he can tell me more about their relationship.

“Elvis was responsible for us changing the jumpsuits that we performed in, back in the ‘70s. He told us to change them and he got a clothes designer for us and everything. He said, “Guys you’ve got to change, this is the way you should look!” And so we changed them because of Elvis,” he laughs.

Elvis was like a brother to us. We performed at the same town of Vegas with him for years. We’d go to his show and he’d go to ours. He’d sit in the light booth to watch us and we’d go back stage and play pinball. This was the early ‘70s and I was about 17 years old.”

I suggest this must have been a great experience for him.

“Oh yes, he was like a brother. I didn’t look at him like ‘Elvis’. He was just Elvis – he was like a brother. It was interesting how you see things differently at the time. But after his show, he just hung out with us a little bit here and there and we became good friends. A lot of people did that back in Vegas. They got to know each other. That’s how we got to know so many people – working in Vegas and Los Angeles also. You become friends with each other.”

I say that it must have been a very special time for him.

“Very much so,” he stresses. “It’s an honour to know these wonderful people in your life, and see how they they’ve had an impact on your life. To be among good people with wonderful souls, just wonderful people.”

We move on and I ask him what he thinks of the current music scene.

“I just love all kinds of music,” he enthuses. “I love everything. I really do.”

Finally I ask if he has a special message for readers of Sixtyplusurfers.

“Just that we love the fans that have been with us forever and we thank them for their support and love. They’ve been up and down with us, and then up again with us, and we just love them all, and we feel like they’re family, we really do.”

The Osmonds will be performing at Union Chapel, Islington, London on 21st February 2019.

Sixtyplusurfers Competition

 Win a littleBits Electronic Music Inventor Kit

Sixtyplusurfers has teamed up with littleBits, the creators of the electronic building block, to giveaway an amazing Music Inventor Kit worth £100.

Creative kids can build and customise a rockin’ synth guitar using the littleBits electronic building blocks and then transform it into new electronic instruments of their own!

There are over 12 activities in the free Inventor App which will guide kids through building musical inventions, like an electric keytar or air drums. Not just fun, kids will also learn STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Mathematics) skills, whilst drawing inspiration from real-world musical inventors.

Invention inspiration

The first guitar! In ninth century Baghdad, the Banū Mūsā brothers invented the first programmable instrument. To play it, a musician pushes wooden pegs into a large cylinder. Each peg represents a note in a song. Then, the instrument plays each note based on the position of each peg. The first computers were programmed in the same way!

Electronic musician, Imogen Heap, felt stuck performing behind her computer, so she decided to create her own instrument! Imogen worked with a team of engineers to invent a set of gloves that allow her to create music with hand gestures and movement! Performing with the gloves makes it easier for Imogen to express herself, improvise, and connect with her audience!

Through hands-on play, kids gain lifelong skills to become changemakers through invention. Product features include in-app instructions for 12 musical activities, tech sensors, paper templates, mounting boards, keyboard Bit, speaker Bit, stickers, free Inventor App, and battery.

One lucky winner will become a musical maestro in the making receiving a littleBits Electronic Music Inventor Kit. The kits are available for £99.99 from Amazon Harrods, Argos and the Disney Store.

Alfie Boe Tour and Album

Alfie Boe Announces UK Tour to Celebrate Classic New Album

One of the world’s greatest classical singers Alfie Boe brings it back to the UK with his 2019 tour in what is becoming another landmark year for the much loved tenor. Alfie has also revealed his return to the solo spotlight with the release of his vibrant and instantly classic album As Time Goes By.

The record celebrates the golden era of music from the 30s and 40s, a time that is often overlooked – sandwiched as it is between the roaring twenties and rock ‘n’ roll.

Alfie is one of the best-loved vocalists of his generation and a hugely successful, multi-platinum selling artist. He has triumphed on theatre stages and in concert halls around the world and has two recent UK Number 1 albums under his belt for albums ‘Together’ and ‘Together Again’, made with his great friend Michael Ball. The duo also won two Classic BRIT Awards earlier this year for ‘Best Album’ and ‘Group of the Year’.

“I’m excited to get back on the road, especially with a new record that I’m so proud of. These songs are at their best when performed live!” says Alfie

He adds, “We’ll be enjoying some of great songs from my previous records, but I more than anything want to bring back to life an era when British audiences discovered a brand new kind of American music, full of energy, optimism and romance. I’d like to transport people to a time in their lives, a moment or even a style. I hope you all enjoy being transported there as much as I do!”

The tour will take place March and April next year, kicking off in Cardiff on 18th March, followed by a series of shows in some of the UK’s most stunning venues including the Liverpool Philharmonic, Brighton Dome and closing at London’s Royal Albert Hall on 17th April.

Tickets are on sale now and can be accessed by ordering Alfie’s new album ‘As Time Goes By’ from www.HMV.com

Katie Melua Releases Ultimate Collection

15 years since the release of Katie Melua’s debut album, the chart topping ‘Call Off The Search’, BMG are releasing ‘Ultimate Collection’. Compiled by Katie, ‘Ultimate Collection’ features 30 songs from her 7 studio albums as well as her cover of ‘Fields Of Gold’ (the Children In Need 2017 single) and 2 brand new recordings: ‘Bridge Over Troubled Water’ and ‘Diamonds Are Forever’.   

‘Bridge Over Troubled Water’, available as an ‘instant grat’ when ordering the album, was recorded earlier this year with The Gori Women’s Choir and the Georgian Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Nikoloz Rachveli, and was produced by Katie and Adam ‘Cecil’ Bartlett. 

‘Diamonds Are Forever’, which Katie first performed live at the Don Black Songbook concert at London’s The Royal Festival Hall, is produced by legendary American record producer and musician, T Bone Burnett. Katie is the sole performer on the track – on vocals and acoustic guitar – which was recorded at T Bone’s home studio in Los Angeles, on vintage gear and to tape.

It is Katie’s extraordinary voice, and the ability to truly inhabit a song, that has been the constant since the young 19 year-old first appeared in 2003 with her debut single ‘The Closest Thing To Crazy’. One of the UK’s highest-selling female recording artists of all time, Katie has released 7 top-10 studio albums: ‘Call Off The Search’, ‘Piece By Piece’, ‘Pictures’, ‘The House’, ‘Secret Symphony’, ‘Ketevan’ and, most recently, 2016’s self-produced and hugely acclaimed ‘In Winter’.  

‘Ultimate Collection’ celebrates the singer, the songwriter, the musician and the collaborator while paying tribute to the musicians, arrangers, producers and songwriters with whom Katie has worked. The songs are musical landmarks – in both Katie’s life and those of her fans; classic songs that stand the test of time, chosen for this collection for their musicianship, the quality of the writing and the pure emotions they elicit.

“I’d like to say a big thank you to all of those that I’ve had the great pleasure of working with, even the ones I don’t see very often. You have coloured and filled these recordings with brilliance. May our work together last for many years in the hearts of anyone needing to hear a classic song.”

Katie is currently on an extensive European tour in the Winter, with 13 UK dates, and joined by a cast of stellar musicians, as well as members of The Gori Women’s Choir. The show openswith a set from up-and-coming Irish-Jordanian artist Keeva.
