Hello everyone! I’m so excited to announce “Unfollow The Rules: The Paramour Session”, happening tomorrow
, Saturday June 27th
at 11am PDT/ 2PM EDT / 7PM BST / 8PM CEDT! I will be performing the album in full in a socially-distanced acoustic format from the beautiful ballroom at the Paramour Mansion. I want my fans to have an opportunity to hear the music live when the album comes out. The only way we can do this responsibly during these times is with acoustic instruments, and fewer musicians in a large space, where everyone can be 6 feet or more apart, with a super small crew. Rather than attempting to imitate the sound of the album I think it’s both more responsible and more creatively interesting to try something new. There are no drums, no effects, no bass, no horns, no flutes, no back-up vocals — only strings that are bowed, picked, hammered, or strummed, and my voice. Let’s hope less is more. Of course, it helps that we are filming and live streaming this from the gorgeous ballroom of the Paramour Estate, a 1920s Hollywood silent film star’s mansion!
The livestream will premiere in Germany, France and all territories FOR FREE on ARTE Concert and ARTE Concert’s Facebook and ALL ARTS’ Facebook for the U.S. and all other territories. ARTE’s stream of the concert will be available as VOD for 90 days. The livestream will also be accessible and FREE via my Official Facebook for 24 hours afterwards, just in case you can’t make it at the exact time.
