Grammy president Neil Portnow:

“What if we're all watching the Grammys a few years from now and there’s no Best New Artist award because there aren’t enough talented artists and songwriters who are actually able to make a living from their craft?”

BLAKE MORGAN

Our guest this week on Art of the Song is singer/songwriter/music producer/label owner Blake Morgan. Born and raised in New York City, Blake began playing the piano and going to music school at age five, with the aim of becoming a professional pianist. At age six his interest began to switch from classical composers such as Mozart and Bartók to The Beatles, after his mother introduced him to Meet The Beatles. Blake's first gig was at CBGB's in New York, when older students from his school recruited him to play in their band. Since he was legally too young for the venue, they smuggled him inside the club in a bass drum case. As the show began, Morgan came out of the case to jump on stage and play the keyboards.

DAVID BROZA

Our guest this week on Art of the Song is Israeli Singer/Songwriter, David Broza.  His charismatic and energetic performances have brought to worldwide audiences a fusion of the three different countries in which he was raised:  Israel, Spain and England.  When we sat down with David he was just finishing up his peace project, East Jerusalem/West Jerusalem, in which he, with producer Steve Earl, brought together Israeli and Palestinian artists, musicians, film crews and chefs in an epic 8 day convergence of artistic expression and peace, focused on breaking down the cultural walls that separate us.  We talked with David about the CD, the two documentaries, and social programs that all spurred from his project.

PINE HILL PROJECT

Lucy Kaplansky and Richard Shindell have been singing together for 25 years. And they’ve talked about making a record together for just as long. In summer 2014 an extraordinarily successful Kickstarter campaign raised the initial goal of $40,000 in 24 hours, going on to ultimately reach over $85,000, to bring that desire to fruition under the band name “The Pine Hill Project.”
