    London-based singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Olivia Chaney's debut album, The Longest River, is due out next week on Nonesuch Records. But you don't need to wait till then to hear it: the album is streaming in full till then at The Bluegrass Situation, and, for folks in Australia, at Rhythms. "She's already garnering mounds of praise," says The Bluegrass Situation. "Riding through The Longest River, listeners will hear why ... From Baroque folk to Norwegian jazz, Chaney's River is both wide and deep." Chaney tours the UK in May and North America in June.

    Singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Olivia Chaney makes her album debut with The Longest River, available April 28 on Nonesuch Records. On the album, Chaney balances her original compositions with a selection of covers she has newly arranged that illustrate the broad sweep of her taste, from jazz to Purcell to folk. "Her voice holds the purity, tension, dignity and sorrow of a heritage full of songs about lost love and cruel fate," says the New York Times. "Ms. Chaney is thoroughly grounded in the past, from medieval music to [Joni] Mitchell. But in her quiet way, she’s radical." The Longest River is available to pre-order with an instant download of the album tracks "Imperfections" and "The King's Horses."

    The Brooklyn Academy of Music's wide-ranging series of concerts and events Nonesuch Records at BAM: Celebrating a Label Without Labels, celebrating the 50th anniversary of Nonesuch Records, kicks off Tuesday night with the first of three consecutive nights of concerts from Philip Glass and Steve Reich plus a separate solo set from Brad Mehldau and continues through September 28.
