Live music is in the air and on the air. WFUV brought you live music from Bonnaroo this past weekend and we've got more from the Solid Sound Music Festival this Saturday. Celebrate Brooklyn and Central Park Summerstage are underway, and there is just no shortage of live music this summer. It all gets us to wondering, who's better on stage than on record? Who would you rather hear live than from their recordings, and why?
Laura Mvula has already earned accolades in the UK, but her debut album, Sing To The Moon, is just starting to make waves here in the States. Classically-trained and from a musical family (her brother and sister are the other performers in this session), there is a range of influences in Mvula's sound, but that voice is utterly unique.
I've got a little downtime now, so I thought I'd check in and see how you're doing. Are you clean? Sitting in air conditioning? Feeling like you have 100% of your hearing? Recently used a functioning toilet? If you answered yes to any of the above... Oh, how I envy you!
