Justin Vernon werk saam om 'n kitaar van Bushmills Irish Whiskey -vate te vervaardig.

"The 1608", een van die vier kitare wat deur Justin I Vernon van Bon Iver en die instrumentmaker Gordy Bischoff uit whisky -vate gemaak is.

Justin Vernon van Bon Iver weet hoe om sake met plesier te meng. Die frontman van die gewilde indie -folkgroep het onlangs saam met sy vriend en bekende instrumentmaker Gordy Bischoff 'n pasgemaakte kitaar gemaak - van wat anders? - Bushmills Ierse Whiskey -vate.

Die kitaar, met liefde "The 1608" genoem na die jaar wat Bushmills in die whiskybedryf begin het, is feitlik geheel en al gemaak van oorspronklike wit eikehout wat uit die whiskyvate van die onderneming geneem is. Die kitaar beskik oor volume- en bedieningsknoppies gemaak van die whisky -botteldoppies; Bischoff het ook 'n skeut van die whisky self by die kitaarhumidor gevoeg om die kitaar 'n outentieke geur te gee.

Die 1608, een van die vier kitare wat deur die vennootskap vervaardig is, word aanlyn opgeveil en alle opbrengste gaan na die Confluence Community Arts Center in die tuisstad Eau Claire, Wisconsin. "Die doel is om kuns weer in Eau Claire op die kaart te plaas," het Vernon gesê. 'Te veel kunstenaars uit hierdie omgewing moes weggaan, want dit wat ons met ons lewens wil doen, is eenvoudig nie hier moontlik nie. Dit is wat die Confluence Project is: om 'n sentrum te bou wat 'n kern vir kuns kan wees hier in Eau Claire. "

Die veiling sluit op 1 November, met 'n bod van $ 8,100. Miskien moet ons eerder besluit om Bushmills -whisky te koop.

[10] Die liedjie het einde 1982 na die nommer 1 in die Verenigde Koninkryk gegaan en 'n internasionale treffer geword, wat boaan die ranglys in drie-en-twintig lande (nr. 2 in die VSA) was en die top tien in nog verskeie lande.

Die band se debuut in 1982 op Bo -op die poppe opskrifte van poniekoerante geskep, wat fokus op George se androgene kleredrag en seksuele dubbelsinnigheid. Tydskrifte het George prominent op hul voorblaaie verskyn. Pete Burns, hoofsanger van die nuwe golfgroep Dead or Alive, sou later beweer dat hy die eerste was wat vlegsels, groot hoede en kleurvolle kostuums gedra het, maar George sny terug met 'n skerp opmerking: "Dit is nie wie dit gedoen het nie Eerstens is dit wie dit beter gedoen het. ”

Die band se debuutalbum, Soen om slim te wees (UK No. 5, US No. 14) is in Oktober 1982 vrygestel, en die opvolgsingel, "Time (Clock of the Heart)", word nog 'n Top 10-treffer in die VSA (nommer 2) en die Verenigde Koninkryk (nommer 3). "I'll Tumble 4 Ya" het ook 'n toptien -treffer geword in die VSA (nommer 9) en in Kanada. Dit het aan Culture Club die onderskeid gegee dat dit die eerste groep sedert The Beatles was wat drie top tien treffers in Amerika gehad het vanaf 'n debuutalbum. [11] Soen om slim te wees het meer as 1,5 miljoen eksemplare in die VSA verkoop, platinum gesertifiseer, en ten tyde van die vrystelling daarvan nog 3 miljoen wêreldwyd verkoop. [ aanhaling nodig ]

Kleur volgens getalle: 1983–1984 Wysig

Die band se tweede album, Kleur volgens getalle (UK No. 1, US No. 2), is vrygestel in 1983. Die eerste enkelsnit, "Church of the Poison Mind", met die agtergrondsanger Helen Terry, bereik die Britse en Amerikaanse Top 10. Die tweede enkelsnit, "Karma Chameleon ", het die groep hul grootste treffer behaal, met 'n hoogtepunt op nommer 1 in die Verenigde Koninkryk (die band se tweede hitlijst daar), waar dit die topverkoper-enkelsnit van 1983 geword het en tot dusver 1,5 miljoen eksemplare daar verkoop het. [12] Dit bereik ook drie opeenvolgende weke 'n hoogtepunt in die VSA en bereik uiteindelik nommer 1 in 30 lande, en word sodoende een van die twintig topverkopers van die 1980's wat sewe miljoen eksemplare wêreldwyd verkoop het, met een van die mees ikoniese beelde van Boy George op die voorblad wat deur fotograaf David Levine geskiet is.

Die album Kleur volgens getalle sou meer treffers oplewer, waaronder 'Miss Me Blind' (#5 VS), 'It's a Miracle' (#4 UK, No. 13 US) en 'Victims' (#3 UK), en vier miljoen eksemplare in die VSA verkoop en nog vyf miljoen wêreldwyd tydens die vrystelling daarvan. Die album het aan Culture Club die onderskeid gemaak dat dit die eerste groep in die musiekgeskiedenis was wat 'n diamant in Kanada met 'n album gesertifiseer het (vir die verkoop van 'n miljoen eksemplare in daardie land). Die orkes het ook die Brit -toekenning van 1984 vir die beste groep en die Grammy -toekenning vir die beste nuwe kunstenaar gewen, waar George 'n toespraak gehou het via satelliet: 'Dankie Amerika, jy het styl, jy het smaak en jy weet 'n goeie sleep koningin as jy een sien. "

Die back-up sanger van die groep, Helen Terry, het begin werk aan haar solo-album, waarvoor George en Hay die liedjie "Love Lies Lost" geskryf het. Die paartjie het ook 'Passing Friend' vir die Beach Boys -album geskryf. Culture Club het twee liedjies vir die klankbaan van die fliek geskryf Elektriese drome. George en Hay het 'The Dream' en 'Love Is Love' geskryf, terwyl laasgenoemde as enkelsnit in Kanada en Japan vrygestel is, het die EP 'Love is Love' 'n groot treffer in Japan geword. George werk ook saam aan die liedjie "Electric Dreams", gesing deur P. P. Arnold. Die liedjie is saam met Phil Pickett (voormalige lid van die 1970s-band Sailor) geskryf, wat ook 'Karma Chameleon' geskryf het en gereeld klawers vir die groep gespeel het.

Ondanks die kommersiële sukses van Culture Club, was daar aansienlike druk in die groep. George het dwelms gebruik met geld uit sy nuutgevonde roem. George en Moss was ook romanties betrokke by mekaar, wat toe nie bekend was vir die publiek en die media nie. Hulle verhouding het meer as vier jaar geduur en was dikwels onstuimig, met beweerde fisiese en verbale mishandeling van beide kante. Hulle voortdurende argumente en die druk om die verhouding vir die publiek te verberg, het die tol geëis.

Word wakker met die huis aan die brand, Van luukse tot hartseer en agteruitgang: 1984–1986 Wysig

In 1984 het die groep hul derde album vrygestel Word wakker met die huis aan die brand (UK No. 2, US No. 26) wat 2,8 miljoen eksemplare wêreldwyd verkoop het. Alhoewel dit platinum in beide die Verenigde Koninkryk en die VSA gesertifiseer was, was dit 'n kommersiële en kritieke teleurstelling in vergelyking met hul eerste twee albums. Die album bevat die treffer -enkelsnit "The War Song", wat nommer 2 in die Verenigde Koninkryk bereik het en Top 20 in die VSA. Ander enkelsnitte soos "Mistake No. 3" (US No. 33) en "The Medal Song" (UK No. 32) sou beskeie treffers word. George het later gesê dat hy voel dat die album 'n louwarm ontvangs beleef as gevolg van halfhartige materiaal wat hy voel dat hulle vrygestel word weens druk van Virgin en Epic om vinnig op te volg Kleur volgens getalle. [ aanhaling nodig ] Volgens hom het die groep pas in 1984 van 'n uitmergelende wêreldtoer af gekom, en gevolglik het die moegheid op die album afgekom. [ aanhaling nodig ]

Aan die einde van 1984 is Boy George gewerf deur Bob Geldof om deel te neem aan die Band Aid -opname, bestaande uit meestal internasionaal bekende Britse en Ierse opname -sterre. George was in New York vir 'n verskyning op Laataand met David Letterman toe Geldof hom bel, maar dit reggekry het om die finale Concorde van die dag na Londen te haal en die laaste sanger was wat 'n hoofstem vir die liedjie "Do They Know It's Christmas?" opgeneem het. Die lied sou die grootste enkelsnit van alle tye in die Verenigde Koninkryk word en 'n groot internasionale treffer wees, wat miljoene inbring vir hongersnoodslagoffers in verskeie Afrika-lande, veral Ethiopië.

Weens al die hartseer van die verbrokkeling van sy verhouding met Moss en die gevolglike spanning met die res van die orkes, het George tot verligting van dwelms oorgegaan. Gevolglik het hy spoedig 'n selfvernietigende dwelmverslawing ontwikkel, wat binne slegs vier maande van dagga tot heroïen toegeneem het. Teen 1986 het George ernstig verslaaf geraak sonder Moss aan sy sy; sy lus vir die orkes is aansienlik verminder. [ aanhaling nodig ] Die opname van hul vierde studio -album, 1986's Van luukse tot hartseer (UK No. 10, US No. 32) het so lank voortgegaan dat produsent Arif Mardin die sessies moes laat vaar weens vorige verbintenisse en dit aan die ingenieur Lew Hahn moes oorlaat om die sessies te voltooi. Liedjies op die album soos "Gusto Blusto" en "Reasons" het dae geneem voordat die verslaafde sanger klaar was. [ aanhaling nodig ] Nietemin het die eerste enkelsnit "Move Away" 'n treffer geword, met 'n hoogtepunt op die Britse nommer 7 en die Amerikaanse nommer 12 en dit blyk dat die album die groep na sy vorige sukses sou terugbring. Maar teen die vrystelling van die tweede enkelsnit "God Thank You Woman", het die nuus oor George se dwelmverslawing in Britse en Amerikaanse blad verskyn, en die tweede enkelsnit het op pad na die kaarte gestaan, sonder om 'n groot impak te maak. .

George en Moss wou ook nie meer om mekaar wees nie weens die voortdurende verhoudingsgevegte, en tesame met George se verslawing moes 'n komende Amerikaanse toer gekanselleer word. [ aanhaling nodig ] Van luukse tot hartseer het ook van die kaarte begin verdwyn, en die album het ten tyde van die vrystelling uiteindelik minder as 'n miljoen eksemplare wêreldwyd verkoop. Teen die somer van 1986 het George uiteindelik erken dat hy inderdaad verslaaf was aan dwelms. [13] In Julie daardie jaar is hy deur die Britse polisie gearresteer weens die besit van heroïen. Die groep het uitmekaar gegaan en George het 'n sololoopbaan gevolg, met verskeie Europese treffers en 'n paar Amerikaanse Top 40 -treffers, alhoewel George nog 'n paar jaar sou sukkel met sy dwelmverslawing.

Reünies Redigeer

1989 Wysig

The band first tried to reunite in 1989, after many requests from Tony Gordon, the group's former manager and George's manager at that time. George agreed to try some songs with the band again, resulting in recording sessions and producing more than a dozen songs that remain unreleased. George, however, was more excited about his future projects like his record label, More Protein, and his new acid house project Jesus Loves You. The proposed reunion ended up being cancelled.

1998–2000, 2002 Edit

In 1998, George and Moss put their differences aside and the band reunited to do a reunion tour, kicking off with a performance on VH1 Storytellers. [14] George said about the reunion, "Culture Club's reunion couldn't have come at a better time for rock", adding that, "It's a nostalgia trip, there's no way of avoiding that." [14] The tour was a major success. Greatest Moments, a compilation album based around the Storytellers performance, was released, and went platinum in UK. It included new songs such as "I Just Wanna Be Loved", which hit UK No. 4. [15] [16] However, their new-found success was short-lived and their fifth studio album, Don't Mind If I Do, released in 1999, peaked at No. 64 in the UK. [17] It included minor UK hits in "Your Kisses Are Charity" (UK No. 25) and "Cold Shoulder" (UK No. 43). [17]

The band went on to tour, then reunited again for a 20th anniversary concert in 2002 at the Royal Albert Hall in London. [18] This performance was released on DVD the following year. [18] Culture Club then became inactive again, largely due to George's successful DJ career.

2006 Edit

In 2006, original members Craig and Moss tried to launch a new tour with another lead singer, as George and Hay had declined to tour. Early that year, the band's record company placed an ad for a lead singer to ". take part in a 2007 World Tour and TV Series." The new singer, Sam Butcher was selected because of his own personality, "not a Boy George lookalike." After watching a video on MySpace, George described the singer who replaced him as "terrible" and "dreadful". George said: "I wanted to like it but I couldn't. They're my songs, they're my heart, they're my life." [19] A proposed tour for December 2006 in the UK did not take place. In 2007, Moss stated that the project was shelved. [ citation needed ]

2011 Edit

In late 2011, George was part of a three-man Culture Club band that performed two live concerts, in Dubai and Sydney, the latter being a New Year's Eve concert, although Moss did not appear due to a back injury. [20]

2014–present Edit

In 2014, the band reformed and announced a tour and a new album. A new picture of the four members was also posted on the band's official website, along with the list of the 11 UK concert dates. Alison Moyet was to have been a special guest on the tour. [ citation needed ]

The band travelled to Spain for a two-week recording session. 18 new tracks were completed for a new album produced by Youth. The new album, entitled Stamme, was scheduled for release in early 2015 on the band's own label Different Man Music (via Kobalt Label Services). At the end of that year the album had still not materialised.

On 19 July 2014, the band were among the line-up for a two-hour concert in Edinburgh Castle, ahead of the opening ceremony of the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. Hay did not perform with the band because he was in recovery after having knee surgery. The band played two songs, "Do You Really Want To Hurt Me" and "Karma Chameleon". [ citation needed ]

In mid-November 2014, two days before the start of their 21-date US and UK tour, Culture Club announced they had to cancel the tour due to George suffering from a serious throat condition. The cancelled tour would have represented the full original line-up's first tour in 12 years. [21] [22] The North American tour was eventually rescheduled and started on 17 July 2015 in Canada. A television documentary, Boy George and Culture Club: Karma to Calamity, aired on BBC Four on 6 March 2015. The programme documented the band's reunion in 2014 and the making of their new album in Spain, up to the announcement to cancel the tour. [23] Based on the popularity of 2015's mini-tour, Culture Club began a 40-city summer tour in 2016, including dates in Australia, Japan, and the US. [ citation needed ]

In August 2016, the band announced that the album Stamme was permanently shelved, and offered refunds to all those who had pre-ordered the album online.

A reworked album called Lewe (credited to George & Culture Club) was finally released on 26 October 2018. [24]

In 2018, Culture Club toured the US and Europe from June to December. Dubbed The Life Tour, the band toured in support of their namesake album, along with supporting acts The B-52s, Tom Bailey (formerly of The Thompson Twins) and Belinda Carlisle (Europe dates only). Jon Moss was originally part of the line-up, but did not participate in the European leg of the tour. A spokeswoman for Boy George confirmed: "Jon's taking a break from Culture Club but the door is open in the future." [25] In December 2019, Moss filed a writ at London's High Court naming the band trio as defendants. Moss' lawyers say he was told to "take a break" by manager Paul Kemsley, demanding nearly £200,000 in missing payments and a share of profits. [26]

Culture Club returned to the SSE Arena in Wembley on 19 December 2020 for a livestream concert, broadcast around the world, in response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Getiteld Rainbow in the Dark, the concert saw the band play their classic hits, new material, including a new ballad version of "Karma Chameleon", featuring Mila, and covers of T. Rex's "Get It On (Bang a Gong)" and George's solo cover of Bread's "Everything I Own".


4 of Our Favorite Musicians’ Favorite Drinks

As a music lover with a background in the drinks industry, I’m often left wondering what my favorite artists sip on. While most fans debate about which B-side the band will play live or what song they’ll cover for an encore, I’m waging a personal debate about what’s in the lead singer’s Solo cup.

With some artists, it’s easier to detect their preferred beverage. I’ve witnessed Brett Dennen enjoying some wine on stage, Band of Horses sipping beers in between songs, and legendary prog-rockers The Mars Volta partaking in some weird, steaming, brightly-colored concoction before and after destroying every guitar and mic stand in sight (no way it was just tea in there). Often times, though, the band keeps the drinking backstage, behind the curtains and way from adoring fans.

What does the performing class enjoy? It’s about as eclectic a favorite drinks list as the music they make. What we like to sip, like the sounds we run through our speakers, is a reflection of who we are and there’s no room for a one-size-fits-all approach.

Some musicians like a drink or two to get the creative juices flowing, whether it be trying to write a song in the wee hours or settling on a chord progression that will get the listener moving. Others pull something out of the cellar to celebrate a successful album or festival appearance. Some don’t even touch the stuff, having had their own battles with alcohol or being of a mind that their best work comes from a completely grounded mental state.

Kenneth Pattengale is one half of the California folk duo Milk Carton Kids. The guitarist and vocalist appreciates a good cocktail after an evening performance. One in particular, devised by Brandon Bramhall of Attaboy, captures his heart. It’s a take on an American classic, not unlike his group’s steeped-in-tradition sound.

Jessica Perez

“If you’re anywhere near Nashville or New York, the Turncoat is my platonic ideal of a Martini,” he says. “The way navy-strength gin blends with fino sherry, and a perfect proportion of sweet and dry vermouths, makes for the perfect accompaniment to a show well-performed.”

John Onstott is a multi-instrumentalist for brooding Oklahoma rockers Other Lives. The band’s sweeping, sometimes haunting tracks can carry you right off your feet. A few years back, the act toured with the esteemed likes of Radiohead and Bon Iver. It’s not entirely surprising that a group responsible for such a nuanced sound also likes a good, detail-driven wine.

“We try not to drink before we perform, but after a performance there’s nothing like a decent bottle of Norello Mascalese,” Onstott says. “The grapes are grown on the volcanic slopes of Mount Etna in Sicily.”

The wines from this part of the world are known for their distinctive qualities, arising at least partially from sharing some topography with a famous volcano. Norello Mascalese is somewhat like Pinot Noir in its complexity and weight, a lighter red with tasting notes so extensive they spill right off the page.

Andy Shauf is a gifted musician from Canada. He’s fronted his own eponymous indie-folk-rock outfit as well as taken part in significant side projects like Foxwarren. The singer-songwriter likes to keep things simple and rooted to his native provincial home when it comes to imbibing.

Andy Shauf Colin Medley

“My go-to drink is a Molson pilsner, the unofficial beer of Saskatchewan” Shauf says. “They carry it at the Skyline and it’s a nice reminder of home in the big city.” The bar he’s referencing is in Toronto, his current home.

The beer makes a lot of sense in light of Shauf’s often minimalistic, but incredibly refreshing and evocative sound. His album The Party, released in 2016, remains a telling musical tale about one eventful evening, oscillating between quiet and observant and boisterous, backed by complex arrangements. The songs function like short films and dabble in the joys and horrors of drinking, something parties so often bring out. Shauf’s newest record, The Neon Skyline, largely unfolds before a bar backdrop. Impressively, he wrote, arranged, performed, and produced every track on the record. It’s a great unwinder, worthy of a cold one.

On the West Coast, in Portland, Oregon, Jeni Wren Stottrup plays soul and R&B-inspired music. The former Shy Girls member is now in charge of her own burgeoning solo career. On the side, the multi-instrumentalist and vocalist heads a music industry podcast called Gritty Birds.

She prefers a good glass of red wine after a day in the studio. “Usually a Cab blend that isn’t too spicy,” she says. “I work and produce from home, so coming out to my local wine bar keeps me semi-social. Plus it’s a nice warm segue from production life.”

Cliche would tell us that no guitar-wielding troubadour is ever too far from a bottle of Jack Daniels, but the musically inclined have palates that demand differently.


Giant oak headphones created by Bushmills

Bushmills has created the world’s largest set of barrel oak headphones to mark Bushmills Live 2014, which will be headlined by The 1975

Made by two local artists using almost a dozen giant whiskey barrels, the headphones stand at over 10 feet high and will play music from the Diageo-owned brand’s Bushmills Live 2014 music concert.

This creation follows the unveiling of a limited edition line of headphones made from Bushmills whiskey barrels by Hollywood actor-tuned-DJ Elijah Wood and his music partner Zach Cowie.

Taking place on 11-12 June, Bushmills Live 2014 will see 700 fans enjoy an array of whiskey and music at the Old Bushmills Distillery on the north coast of Ireland.

Bushmills Irish whiskey master distiller Colum Egan said: “We’re looking forward to throwing open the doors of the distillery and welcoming friends, old and new, to come and enjoy the handcrafted whiskey and music on offer at Bushmills Live 2014.”

The festival was launched in 2012 to cement the distillery’s association with the music industry, which has since seen other limited edition musical items created from Bushmills barrels.

In October 2012, Bushmills auctioned a guitar made from whiskey barrels, owned by Bon Iver frontman Justin Vernon, for charity.

British band The 1975 have been announced as the festival’s headline act on 12 June.

“We’ve never played a show in a distillery before so it’s a first for us. We’ve gigged all over the place but to play a festival like this, in a setting as unique as this, will be pretty special,” said the band’s lead singer, Matthew Healy.


Inhoud

Jones was born Geethali Norah Jones Shankar on March 30, 1979, in Manhattan, New York, to American concert producer Sue Jones and Indian musician Ravi Shankar. [5] [6]

After her parents separated in 1986, Jones lived with her mother, growing up in Grapevine, Texas. As a child, Jones began singing in church and also took piano and voice lessons. She attended Colleyville Middle School and Grapevine High School before transferring to Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts in Dallas. Her music took its first form early on in the local Methodist Church where she regularly sang solos. While in high school, she sang in the school choir, participated in band, and played the alto saxophone. At the age of 16, with both parents' consent, she officially changed her name to Norah Jones. [5] [15]

Jones always had an affinity for the music of Bill Evans and Billie Holiday, among other "oldies". She once said, "My mom had this eight-album Billie Holiday set I picked out one disc that I liked and played that over and over again." [16]

She attended Interlochen Center for the Arts during the summers. While at high school, she won the Down Beat Student Music Awards for Best Jazz Vocalist (twice, in 1996 and 1997) and Best Original Composition (1996). [17]

Jones attended the University of North Texas (UNT), where she majored in jazz piano and sang with the UNT Jazz Singers. During this time, she had a chance meeting with future collaborator Jesse Harris. She gave a ride to a band playing at the university whose members happened to be friends of Harris. He was on a cross-country road trip with friend and future Little Willies member Richard Julian, and stopped to see the band play. After meeting Jones, Harris started sending her lead sheets of his songs.

In 1999, Jones left Texas for New York City. Less than a year later, she started a band with Harris, and her recordings with them were bestsellers. [18]

Jones was a lounge singer before becoming a recording artist. [19] Before releasing her first album, she performed with Wax Poetic, Peter Malick, and jazz guitarist Charlie Hunter. [20] [21] [22]

2000–2001: New York Stad, First Sessions Redigeer

As Peter Malick states in the liner notes, "I started looking for a singer who might be open to recording [my latest songs] for me. On a Tuesday night, I walked into the Living Room just as the singer announced the last song of the set. The Dinah Washington classic 'Since I Fell for You' filled the room and I was struck breathless. Here, in the tradition of Billie Holiday, was a stunningly beautiful, blues infused voice. This was my first contact with Norah Jones." [23] Malick asked her to participate in sessions at Room 9 from Outer Space in South Boston, Massachusetts, during August and September 2000. They recorded Malick's songs "New York City", "Strange Transmissions", "Deceptively Yours" and "Things You Don't Have to Do" in addition to cover versions of "All Your Love" by Sam Maghett and "Heart of Mine" by Bob Dylan. These songs became the album New York Stad (Koch, 2003) by the Peter Malick Group Featuring Norah Jones. [23]

After moving to New York City, Jones signed to Blue Note, a label owned by EMI Group. The signing came as an indirect result of her performing as lead singer for the JC Hopkins Biggish Band. Shell White, who was the wife of J. C. Hopkins, worked for EMI Publishing and gave Jones's three-track demo to Bruce Lundvall, the label's president, and Brian Bacchus, its artists and repertoire agent (A&R). The demo contained two jazz standards and a song by Jesse Harris. The two executives agreed that Jones had potential. Despite their misgivings about the direction of her music, they signed her to the label. Bacchus told HitQuarters, "We let her find her own direction. We knew that if she could develop her songwriting and we could find great songs, it would work." [24]

2002: Come Away with Me Redigeer

Bacchus thought producer and engineer Jay Newland's experience in jazz, blues, rock, country, and folk music would give a "feeling for her sound." Jones and Newland recorded nine demo tracks. Four appeared on the sampler First Sessions (2001). The rest were set aside for her debut album. [24] Come Away with Me (2002) was praised for its blend of acoustic pop with soul and jazz. [25] Debuting at No. 139, it reached No. 1 on the U.S. Billboard 200. The single "Don't Know Why" hit No. 1 on the Top 40 Adult Recurrents in 2003 and No. 30 in the Billboard Hot 100 Singles Chart. At the 45th Grammy Awards in 2003, Jones was nominated for eight Grammy Awards and won five: Best New Artist, Album of the Year, Best Pop Vocal Album, Record of the Year, and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance for "Don't Know Why". This tied Lauryn Hill and Alicia Keys for most Grammy Awards received by a female artist in one night. Jesse Harris won Song of the Year for "Don't Know Why" while Arif Mardin won Producer of the Year. The album won Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical. [10] Come Away with Me was certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) for having sold one million copies. In February 2005, it was certified diamond for selling ten million copies. [26]

2004: Dit voel soos om tuis te wees Redigeer

Dit voel soos om tuis te wees (2004) debuted at No. 1 in at least 16 countries. [27] At the 47th Grammy Awards in 2005, the album was nominated for three Grammys, winning one, Best Female Pop Vocal Performance for "Sunrise". For "Here We Go Again", a duet with Ray Charles, she won Record of the Year and Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals. [28] Tyd magazine named Jones one of the most influential people of 2004. [29]

2007: Not Too Late Redigeer

Jones released her third album, Not Too Late, on January 30, 2007. The album was the first for which she wrote or co-wrote every song. She has said some of these songs are much darker than those on her previous albums. [30] Not Too Late was mostly recorded at Jones' home studio. It is her first album without producer Arif Mardin, who died in the summer of 2006. Jones described the sessions as "fun, relaxed and easy" and without a deadline Blue Note executives reportedly did not know she was recording an album. The song "My Dear Country" is political commentary she wrote it before the United States Presidential election day in 2004. Not Too Late reached the No. 1 position in twenty countries. Not Too Late had the third-best first week of sales in 2007, behind Avril Lavigne's The Best Damn Thing and Linkin Park's Minutes to Midnight. It reached No. 1 in the U.S., selling 405,000 copies. EMI announced that Not Too Late reached gold, platinum or multi-platinum in 21 countries as of February 2007. [31] The album has sold 4 million copies worldwide. That same year she sang "American Anthem" for the Ken Burns documentary The War. [32] [33]

2009: Die sondeval Redigeer

Jones' fourth studio album, Die sondeval, debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 in November 2009, selling 180,000 copies in its first week. Although it was her first album that did not reach No. 1 in the United States it did receive critical acclaim. [34] As part of the promotional drive for the album, Jones performed on Dans met die sterre, Late Show with David Letterman, Goeie môre Amerika and other television programs. Die sondeval featured a St. Bernard on the cover his name is Ben. [35] The album's lead single, "Chasing Pirates", peaked at No. 13 on Hot Adult Contemporary Tracks and No. 7 on Jazz Songs. Billboard ' s 2000–2009 decade awards ranked Jones as the top jazz recording artist, at No. 60 best Artist. Come Away With Me was elected the No. 4 album and No. 1 jazz album. Jones earned a platinum certification by the RIAA for sales of 1 million copies of Die sondeval. The album sold 1.5 million copies worldwide and was certified gold or platinum in 14 countries as of 2010. "Baby, It's Cold Outside", a duet with Willie Nelson, was nominated in the Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals category. In 2009, Jones performed "Come Away With Me" and "Young Blood" at the end of the Apple Inc.'s It's Only Rock and Roll press conference on September 9 in San Francisco, for the release of iTunes 9 and video camera-equipped iPods, among other items [36] She also made a guest appearance and performed with other artists on the season three finale of the NBC series 30 Rock [37] Jones started her fourth world tour on March 5, 2010.

2012: Little Broken Hearts Redigeer

After working with Danger Mouse and Daniele Luppi on some of the tracks for their album Rome, Jones worked with Danger Mouse again on her fifth studio album, Little Broken Hearts, which was released on May 1, 2012. She played the album in its entirety at SXSW 2012. [38] American Songwriter gebel Little Broken Hearts the "most dramatic and rewarding departure she's made in her career." [39] On May 25, 2012, she began her fifth world tour in Paris, with performances in Europe, North America, Asia, South America, and Australia. She performed in London at the Roundhouse on September 10, 2012, as part of the iTunes Festival which was broadcast on the internet.

Giant oak headphones created by Bushmills

Bushmills has created the world’s largest set of barrel oak headphones to mark Bushmills Live 2014, which will be headlined by The 1975

Made by two local artists using almost a dozen giant whiskey barrels, the headphones stand at over 10 feet high and will play music from the Diageo-owned brand’s Bushmills Live 2014 music concert.

This creation follows the unveiling of a limited edition line of headphones made from Bushmills whiskey barrels by Hollywood actor-tuned-DJ Elijah Wood and his music partner Zach Cowie.

Taking place on 11-12 June, Bushmills Live 2014 will see 700 fans enjoy an array of whiskey and music at the Old Bushmills Distillery on the north coast of Ireland.

Bushmills Irish whiskey master distiller Colum Egan said: “We’re looking forward to throwing open the doors of the distillery and welcoming friends, old and new, to come and enjoy the handcrafted whiskey and music on offer at Bushmills Live 2014.”

The festival was launched in 2012 to cement the distillery’s association with the music industry, which has since seen other limited edition musical items created from Bushmills barrels.

In October 2012, Bushmills auctioned a guitar made from whiskey barrels, owned by Bon Iver frontman Justin Vernon, for charity.

British band The 1975 have been announced as the festival’s headline act on 12 June.

“We’ve never played a show in a distillery before so it’s a first for us. We’ve gigged all over the place but to play a festival like this, in a setting as unique as this, will be pretty special,” said the band’s lead singer, Matthew Healy.


The 1975 (2017)

Strange how a cover version can be one of the most talked-about songs of the entire month — but not too strange, given the parties involved. The 1975’s new release for the War Child charity pulls poptimism’s favorite rock band back into the forefront, filters Matthew Healey’s lead vocal through an Auto-Tuned ether frolic that’s as disorienting and elusive as Sade Adu’s voice is soothingly direct, and acknowledges the original’s prescience while updating it for a listenership interested in finding a commonality with Bon Iver and Chance The Rapper. It is the latest “By Your Side” cover it probably will not be the last.
