Songwriters in the Round With Natalia Zukerman, AG (Adrianne Gonzalez), Richard Julian, Annie Keating

Natalia Zukerman

With diverse influences that include Folk, Jazz, Blues, Rock, Bluegrass, Country and even Classical, Natalia Zukerman has been described by public radio as “an example of the finest Americana.” She combines her unique slide guitar playing style with seductive vocals, a painter’s observing eye, unapologetic writing, and sharp wit. Zukerman’s music is as riddled with urban restlessness as it is grounded in rootsy warmth – a welcome contradiction.

“Natalia’s voice could send an orchid into bloom while her guitar playing can open a beer bottle with its teeth.” –New Yorker

AG (Adrianne Gonzalez)

Richard Julian

Annie Keating

New-York based singer/songwriter Annie Keating's fifth album, "For Keeps" is a keeper. Beautifully crafted songs combined with musical hooks and punches knock the listener right in the chest, making this album stand out as an instant classic. With refreshing honesty, grit and timelessness, Keating and her band of musical magic makers achieve a sound that is both complex and simple, new and vintage ... the first song gets it's hooks in you and after 12 tracks you just want MORE.

Lucky for New Yorkers, Keating and her band will launch this new album with an extended live CD release party at Littlefield in Brooklyn on Thursday, 2/7 at 8pm. This proves to be an incredible night of music, with other amazing female talents on the bill, including Trina Hamlin, Natalia Zuckerman and Liah Alonso (from Left on Red) and her band.
This brooklyn-based songwriter knows how to write and deliver beautiful songs with a magical earthly rich voice and arrangement that transfixes ... She has picked up a great (and well served) reputation over the course of her 4 previous albums, but here on 'For Keeps' it all comes into focus. No frills or posturing -- her sultry voice cuts straight to the heart. On her 5th album release, "For Keeps" Keating is at her best. She has arrived as an international songwriting tour de force.

Talent spotted by BBC Radio 2's Bob Harris, Keating appeared live on the Bob Harris show in 2008 and has gone on to perform at leading national and international festivals including Take Root (Netherlands), the Glasgow Americana Festival (Scotland), the NJ Folk Festival, NXNE in Canada, NEMO and MEANY music fests and the Mountain Stage NewSong finals. Keating has performed on the bill with the likes of John Haitt, Dan Bern, Anna Egge, Bon Iver, Hot Club of Cowtown, Anne Heaton, Boris McCutcheon and Shannon McNally.

Having grown up in Boston and taught herself to play guitar at age 12, Keating honed her craft at "The Underground" club in Providence, Rhode Island, while at Brown University. An activist and musician, she moved to New York City in 1992 playing music at night while advocating for civil liberties and social justice issues at various non profit jobs during the day.

As her activist work took over, Keating put music on the back burner, not getting seriously back into it until shortly after her first child was born. At that point, she says, "I wanted to be home and make music again." So she made my first record at 34 years old and 3 more albums after that. She feels like she's just getting started, "I wish I'd had the courage to begin recording and taking music seriously earlier ... I'm making up for lost time."

Keating is a late bloomer, but well worth the wait. She knows how to write and deliver beautifully crafted songs. She has picked up a great (and well deserved) reputation over the course of her 3 previous albums, but here on 'Water Tower View' it all comes into focus on an album that stands out as a superb example of contemporary roots music. No frills or posturing -- her sultry voice cuts straight to the heart. On her 4th album release, "Water Tower View" Keating is at her best. She has arrived as an international songwriting tour de force.

Talent spotted by BBC Radio 2's Bob Harris, Keating appeared live on the Bob Harris show in 2008 and has gone on to perform at leading national and international festivals including Take Root (Netherlands), the Glasgow Americana Festival (Scotland), the NJ Folk Festival, NXNE in Canada, NEMO and MEANY music fests and the Mountain Stage NewSong finals.
