Rufus Wainwright

Rufus Wainwright

Rufus Wainwright, one of the great male vocalists, composers, and songwriters of his generation, has released eight studio albums, three DVDs, and three live albums. He has collaborated with artists ranging from Elton John, David Byrne, RobbieWilliams Mark Ronson, Joni Mitchell to Burt Bacharach. His album DzRufus Does Judydz recorded at Carnegie Hall in 2006 was nominated for a Grammy. His acclaimed first opera, Prima Donna, premiered at the Manchester International Festival in July 2009 and has since been presented in London, Toronto and BAM in New York. This summer it will be performed at the Armel Opera Festival in Hungary and Augsburg Theatre in Germany. In 2015, Deutsche Grammaphon released a studio recording of the opera recorded with the BBC Symphony Orchestra. Rufus celebrated the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death with the release of his latest album Take All My Loves: 9 Shakespeare Sonnets on Deutsche Grammophon worldwide in Spring 2016. The Canadian Opera Company commissioned Wainwright’s second opera, about Roman Emperor Hadrian, to premiere in Toronto in the fall of 2018

Amy Stroup

Amy Stroup’s Helen Of Memphis pushes her songwriting into bold sonic territory, incorporating electronic pop elements into groove- and beat-driven tunes bubbling over with feminine empowerment and confidence – a concept inspired by her late grandmother’s love of fashion.

Recorded in LA and in her adopted Nashville hometown, Stroup’s third solo album and first since 2015’s Tunnel finds her stepping beyond her comfort zone. In LA, Stroup teamed with two-thirds of the SUPERCOOKIES production team, a far cry from the Nashville scene she’d grown accustomed to. Other collaborators in the project include creative partner Mary Hooper, One Republic’s Tim Meyers, Ruslan Odnoralav (Mat Kearney and Timbaland), Tofer Brown, Rob Kleiner (Sia), Andrew Simple, and long-time producer friend Thomas Doeve.

For a decade, Stroup has crafted songs with rich, emotional honesty and vivid storytelling. Her music has been featured in dozens of television shows, including This Is Us, Grey’s Anatomy, Parenthood, and The Walking Dead, as well national ad campaigns for brands like Calvin Klein and Lexus. Stroup also is a prolific collaborator, teaming with Andrew Simple to record as Danger Twins (you’ve likely heard their songs in spots for Google, Universal Studios, and New Balance) and partnering with Trent Dabbs for Sugar & The Hi-Lows, a playfully retro duo Rolling Stone said “built a bridge between the rootsy stomp of early Sun Records tunes and the harmonized swoon of old Brill Building pop songs.”
