Olivia Chaney kicks off a three-week North American tour featuring music from her debut album, The Longest River, at Roulette in Brooklyn on Wednesday, culminating in a return to NYC for a show at Joe's Pub on June 25. "With an earthiness to her expressive soprano, Chaney is bringing the grand tradition of British folk music into the 21st century," says the New Yorker. "Baez, Collins, Mitchell, Marling," exclaims PopMatters; "the debut folk album by Olivia Chaney shows that she belongs in this company. It's pretty much perfect."Read morehttp://www.nonesuch.com/journal/watch-rhiannon-giddens-performs-la-vie-en-rose-2015-06-02Tuesday, June 2, 2015

Devendra Banhart and his band toured South America in 2014 with music from his Nonesuch Records debut album, Mala. Artist and filmmaker Adam Tullie was there to capture the trip and has created a short film, set to a selection of Banhart's home demos and one of his poems. "The overall landscape is beyond beautiful, strewn with lush color and tropical flora," says Tullie, with whom Banhart is releasing an art book. "The people reflect this; lively, bright, and full of love." Watch it here.Read morehttp://www.nonesuch.com/journal/sam-amidon-npr-mountain-stage-debut-2015-06-02Tuesday, June 2, 2015
Sam Amidon made his Mountain Stage debut on NPR last week, now available online at npr.org. Amidon performed two songs from his latest album, Lily-O—"Walkin' Boss" and "Blue Mountains"—and two from his 2013 Nonesuch debut album, Bright Sunny South—"Short Life" and "As I Roved Out." "A gifted multi-instrumentalist, Amidon made a name for himself in his teens as a fiddler," says NPR. "In the years since then, he has stretched comfortably from old-time music into styles ranging from free jazz to alt-folk." Amidon resumes his North American tour in Boston on June 14.Read morehttp://www.nonesuch.com/journal/conor-oberst-us-spring-tour-2015-06-01Monday, June 1, 2015

The Bad Plus Joshua Redman, the debut album from the eponymous quartet, is out now in North America (June 8 for the rest of the world). "The album is a knockout," exclaims the New York Times. "It is impressive how much vital presence [Redman] brings to the Bad Plus without altering the band’s dynamic." It's "a roaring and beautiful summit meeting," says NPR. "The ideas are impressive by themselves, but become more powerful as Redman and the rhythm section go about developing them ... [T]he real triumph of The Bad Plus Joshua Redman: It exhibits genuinely fresh thinking." The Bad Plus Joshua Redman begins a world tour in NYC June 10.
