    Timothy Andres Featured in Wall Street Journal Article Examining His Many, Varied Musical Influences
    Michael Wilson

    Timothy Andres—whose debut recording, Shy and Mighty, is due out on Nonesuch May 18—is featured in a Wall Street Journal article titled "Bursting the Classical Bubble."

    In the piece, writer John Jurgensen examines how the 24-year-old composer, raised on the classical canon, was later introduced to a new world of music that included everything from iconic classic rock to contemporary classical icons like Steve Reich and John Adams, and how this confluence of musical styles has influenced his own work. To illustrate the point, the Journal takes a look at the top ten artist/composers on Andres's iTunes playlist, where Radiohead edges out Beethoven for the top spot by a hair.

    To read the article, see the playlist, and hear the Shy and Mighty album track "The night jaunt," visit wsj.com. To pre-order the CD and receive the complete album as high-quality MP3s on release day at no additional cost, visit the Nonesuch Store.

    Timothy Andres will be celebrating the album's release and performing Shy and Mighty at New York's (Le) Poisson Rouge on Monday, May 17. He will be joined on the duo-piano piece by David Kaplan, who also performs on the album. For more information on this and other upcoming performances from Andres, visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.

    Rhiannon Giddens has released "Waterbound," a second track from her upcoming album with Francesco Turrisi, They’re Calling Me Home, out April 9. The song is a traditional fiddle tune first recorded in the 1920s that includes the refrain, "Waterbound, and I can't get home, down to North Carolina," capturing a central theme of the new album: longing for the comfort of home and family in this time of prolonged isolation. The video, which you can watch here, was filmed in Ireland and includes footage from the recording session that took place in a small studio on a working farm outside Dublin. The song and video also feature Congolese guitarist Niwel Tsumbu. Giddens says, “‘Waterbound’ is a song I learned a long time ago and it brings me forcefully home to North Carolina when I sing it, and considering that I am, indeed waterbound, and have been for a long time, it's a rare moment when a folk song represents exactly my situation in time.”

    Joachim Cooder was joined by his father, Ry Cooder, for a performance streamed from the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles on Saturday. They performed songs from Joachim Cooder's Nonesuch Records debut album, Over That Road I'm Bound. "My hope for tonight's performance is: we do something maybe that we've never done before," he says. "I like to let things take their own course and have each show be a little different. So I would like all my things to work and have everybody see something that they haven't seen somewhere else." You can watch the program, which also includes a set from Amythyst Kiah, here.
