All the way from Iceland, indie rock band Kaleo comes to New York City to perform songs from their debut album A/B.Highlights include a performance of "Vor ي Vaglaskَgi," a traditional Icelandic Love song sung in the band's native language, as well as their top 10 singles "All the Pretty Girls" and "Way Down We Go." Formed in 2012, the band music is mostly influenced by folk and blues and prominently features a distinctive resonator sound.
FRONT AND CENTER showcases a strong mix of performers that will satisfy the traditional music fan while building interest from the younger music audience stations want to cultivate. From 'super groups' featuring Stephen Stills and Joe Bonamassa to British newcomer Jake Bugg; from Southern Soul and Heavy Metal to New Orleans Jazz and Chicago blues; there's something for just about everyone in the lineup of nine concerts recorded live, "front and center," at some of New York City's greatest intimate venues. Many of the artists are touring this fall, giving broadcasts airing in September and October a little extra buzz in those markets.
