FUV Live

LP - Live Concert - 2012

You've probably heard this big-voiced, ukulele-wielding singer-songwriter, even if you haven't heard of her. Well, we'd like to change that. LP has written songs for Rihanna and Christina Aguilera, but it's her own super-powerful performances that are really earning attention. One show was this recent FUV Live set at Rockwood Music Hall, which featured songs from her EP, 'Into The Wild,' talk of LP's upcoming album, and a Roy Orbison cover.

World Party - Live Concert - 2012

World Party has created some of the most melodic and meaningful songs since their start in 1986, and in this FUV Live broadcast from City Winery many of their best ones come to life. Karl Wallinger, backed by a duo of violin and guitar, was in great voice and chipper spirits. Joking with the crowd between songs and treating us to a set list of classics including "Put the Message in the Box," "Ship of Fools," "Is It Like Today" and my fave, "Sweet Soul Dream."

Iris DeMent - Live Concert - 2012

Iris DeMent is set to release her first album in 16 years, called Sing The Delta, on October 2nd, but she treated us to a live preview of a few of the new songs in an FUV Live show at The Living Room. She also spoke with me about the wait between albums, where the Delta factors into the sound and spirit of her songs, and why she and husband, Greg Brown, keep their songwriting separate.
