SHELLEY SEGAL ANNOUNCES SHOWS WITH
AMERICAN JAZZ GUITARIST/VOCALIST, ADAM LEVY
Melbourne singer, songwriter and international touring artist, Shelley Segal has announced she’ll be bringing notable American jazz guitarist and volcalist Adam Levy out to Australia to tour their new collaborative album, 'Little March' which was released in Australia in March, and the US last month.
Performing at some of the country's best-known jazz clubs, the duo will be hitting up Bennetts Lane (Melbourne) with full backing band for two shows on July 26 & August 6 and Blue Beat (Sydney) for a show on August 1.
A highly sought after jazz guitarist, Levy has played with some of the genre's best including Norah Jones (with whom he played and toured for more than six years), Ani Difranco, TRacy Chapman, Roseanne Cash, Lisa Loeb and more. With several of his own albums under his belt, Levy is also an educator and regular writer for Player magazine and Acoutic Guitar magazine and is the author of Jazz Guitar Sight Reading (book) and Play the Right Stuff (book and DVD).
And then there's Segal who has just returned home from an extensive three month US tour. She's been performing across the Australian and international scene for the las decase and has released two albums to date with a third due out in early 2014. Segal also recently wrote and recorded a track, Chemistry, for DJ Carl Cox, which spent two weeks at #1 on the dance charts last year.
Segal and Levy's collaboration, Litlle March
is an album brimming with soulful, expressive intelligent songs that
navigate thtough jazz, folk and blues with tender affection and great
artistry. The album was written in New York where Levy was living at the
time, recorded in Los Angeles and produced by the Grammy-winning S.
Husky Hoskulds (Fiona Apple, Tom Waits, Sheryl Crow, Norah Jones). Lead
single Stuck In The Memory
highlights Segal's impressive writing and vocal ability as she
stylishly slinks through this jazz number that will have you singing
along after just one listen. The albums's opening duet track, Glad
You Asked "Is a sweet folky song about the difference we can make
through kindness to others - 'To remind me that the winter never
lasts'," explains Shelley through quoting the song's lyrics. "It's
an honour to play with Adam. As well as being so incredibly talented,
he is the loveliest guy in the world. It is going to be a really special
tour. Hopefully we'll get to write some new songs on the road as well."
Tickets to the shows are on sale now and the album Little March is out now through True Music
