StreetcredMusic. The Coming Of A Star. Maggie Rose

 The coming of a star. Maggie Rose

       Her latest album, "Have A Seat"

For Rose, the charmed experience of recording in Muscle Shoals has catalyzed the start of a thrilling new era in her musical evolution. “Working with musicians of that caliber and knowing they were giving my music so much attention definitely made me thrive,” she says. “I felt so safe going deep into the emotional places within the songs, and I think you can feel that love and camaraderie when you listen to the record.” At the same time, Have a Seat is undeniably the sound of an artist fully coming into her own, without concession or compromise. “I’ve worked in this industry for over a decade, and I feel like I’ve finally carved out a lane that’s genre-bending and all my own,” she says. “I had to really fight to find that space for myself, and this record is my way of staking my claim.”

StreetcredMusic: Songs Of Summer. Madeleine Peyroux and Janis Joplin

 Songs for Summer

 Madeleine Peyroux 

    Young Madeleine moved to Paris with her mother in 1987 following her parents divorce. “To soothe me during the upheaval”, she recalls, “I was given a guitar and took to playing in the streets almost immediately.”

 VIDEO: Madeleine Peyroux "Summer Wind"



 The curious teenager started skipping school to frequent the city’s Latin Quarter where street musicians dwelled, keen to learn about their music and way of life. At 16, the fearless teen joined the Lost Wandering Blues and Jazz Band with whom she toured the streets of Europe, discovering Bessie Smith and Billie Holiday while “voraciously picking up all the songs and all the guitar playing” she could.

   

 

 

 Madeleine’s thirst for creative exploration is unfading and her willingness to face creative challenges remains as solid now as it was three decades ago.

 Joplin died of an accidental heroin overdose in 1970 aged 27, after releasing three albums (two with Big Brother, and one solo album). A second solo album, Pearl, was released in January 1971, just over three months after her death. It reached number one on the Billboard charts. She was posthumously inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1995. Rolling Stone ranked Joplin number 46 on its 2004 list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time[11] and number 28 on its 2008 list of 100 Greatest Singers of All Time. She remains one of the top-selling musicians in the United States, with Recording Industry Association of America certifications of 18.5 million albums sold.

Michelle Mangione  

About Michelle...😍

With her band, cajon (box drum), drums and acoustic guitar, songwriter Michelle Mangione challenges the world of live music to rise to a very intimate and honest level.

To date, she has released 4 Independent CDs and numerous independent videos.

She is frequently seen playing guitar and "feet drums" at the same time, a skill she learned out of necessity. "I couldn't afford to pay a drummer, and needed the percussive edge in our acoustic shows, so I devised a pedal driven drum set that I could play with my feet", says Michelle.

StreetcredMusic: Lots Of Women Play Piano, Part 2 Carly Simon and Licia Missori

 StreetcredMusic: "Lots Of Women Play Piano" Part 2.

  Color is the keyboard, the eyes are the harmonies, the soul is the piano with many strings. 

The artist is the hand that plays, touching one key or another, to cause vibrations in the soul.

 The one and only: Carly Simon

 

                                ************************************************

 Pianos, unlike people, sing when you give them your every growl. 

They know how to dive into the pit of your stomach and harmonize with your roars when you’ve split yourself open.

And when they see you, guts shining, brain pulsing, heart right there exposed in a rhythm that beats need need, need need, need need, pianos do not run... And so she plays.

StreetcredMusic: Lots of Women Play Piano, Pt 1. Kayce Laine and Carole King

 The piano is an acoustic, stringed musical instrument invented in Italy by Bartolomeo Cristofori around the year 1700 (the exact year is uncertain), in which the strings are struck by wooden hammers that are coated with a softer material (modern hammers are covered with dense wool felt; some early pianos used leather). It is played using a keyboard, which is a row of keys (small levers) that the performer presses down or strikes with the fingers and thumbs of both hands to cause the hammers to strike the strings.

The word piano is a shortened form of pianoforte
