Wayne Krantz: On Tour In USA and Asia

Known globally for his uncompromising musical vision, staggering virtuosity and deep reserves of soul, Wayne Krantz is one of very few modern guitarists to venture beyond the instrument's limitations and create an identifiably original style and sound. Good Piranha/Bad Piranha is his full-throttle double-take on four contemporary pop and hip-hop songs, from which he plunders the textural, rhythmic and harmonic intrigue that has come to define each of his unique projects.

Following 2012's critically acclaimed Howie 61—a record packed with cleverly arranged, hard-hitting original songs and a small army of masterful sidemen—Krantz has scaled back the setting and material for his tenth outing as a leader. Good Piranha/Bad Piranha finds his trio in the studio revisiting a selection of cover tunes they performed during legendary recent appearances at the 55 Bar in Greenwich Village.

Presenting two distinct versions each of Pendulum's "Comprachicos," M.C. Hammer's "U Can't Touch This," Ice Cube's "My Skin is My Sin" and Radiohead vocalist Thom Yorke's "Black Swan," Krantz extracts and serves up a surprising range of nuance by switching up musicians and applying his inimitable instrumental inventiveness. Each song's multiple takes allow the group(s) to reimagine the material from unexpected angles, making use of subtle rhythmic and melodic shifts to frame a dazzling display of the guitarist's revered melodic and chordal innovations; he intertwines his stark, elastic tones with the familiar tunes' snaky rhythmic skeletons and insistent basslines to create wholly new works.

Ian Siegal: New Album and UK tour dates announced

Photo Credit: © Marco van Rooijen
Award-winning British songwriter, Ian Siegal, is set to release “One Night In Amsterdam”, his first full-band live album on CD and vinyl on March 9th. Released by Nugene Records, the new album dovetails Siegal’s nationwide March UK tour which kicks off at the Chester Live Rooms on March 17th. Fans can pre-order the limited edition vinyl version of the album here.

While Siegal’s 2014 album Man & Guitar showcased the award-winning British songwriter as a solo acoustic troubadour, One Night In Amsterdam flicks the power switch, marking Siegal’s first live album with a full-throttle electric band. Chalk up another first for the man that Mojo called, “One of the most innovative, gifted and engaging blues performers on the planet today.”

Siegal is able to draw on an astonishing eight-album catalogue that has scored him seven British Blues Awards in five categories (he’s also the only Brit ever to receive two nominations at the U.S. Blues Music Awards). The bar for Siegal’s live albums has been set sky-high by Man & Guitar – recently crowned Blues Album of the Year by Mojo– but from the opening notes of One Night InAmsterdam, it’s clear he’s up for the challenge. The new album includes a free bonus track Hard Pressed – unlocked via a download key available on release day, March 9th.
