Giant Step presents - Alice Russell

  • Giant Step presents Alice Russell with special guests Taylor McFerrin (live) and J Boogie (DJ set) at Hiro Ballroom Friday, November 14th, 2008 Giant Step is proud to present the return of British singing sensation Alice Russell. She will be performing at New York's Hiro Ballroom in anticipation of her fourth and latest album Pot of Gold, which will be released on November 24th. This show follows her stunning performance at this venue in June. She is in great demand as a vocalist and has gained an enviable reputation as one of the UK's hottest singers, having recorded with the likes of Massive Attack and The Nextmen, as well as The Roots and The Quantic Soul Orchestra. Alice's lavishly soulful voice is both timeless and up to the minute modern. Her primary influences are golden voices such as Minnie Riperton, Eva Cassidy, Stevie Wonder, Chaka Khan, Aretha Franklin and Jill Scott. Taylor McFerrin is redefining the one-man show. Combining his skills as a producer and performer, Taylor is making music heads around the world take notice as he seamlessly builds songs from scratch with his ambitious solo project. Fender Rhodes, synthesizers, samples, vocals and beatboxing are meshed together in his Brooklyn bedroom studio as Taylor builds from his roots in ‘60s soul to his vision of future hip-hop. San Francisco resident and world-renowned DJ/producer J-Boogie has continued to challenge the boundaries of the music world across genres, styles, languages and borders throughout his 15-year career. $20 Advance Tickets available now at giantstepstore.net For more info: http://www.giantstep.net/events/1012 Hiro Ballroom 371 W 16th St New York, New York Doors: 7 PM Show: 7:30 PM SHARP 21+ with ID
