Live From Daryl's House #49-Blind Boys From Alabama

BLIND BOYS OF ALABAMA CELEBRATE THE HOLIDAY SPIRIT ON A SPECIAL 49th EDITION OF LIVE FROM DARYL’S HOUSE




Legendary, Grammy-winning gospel group will join Daryl Hall for a six-song set that includes seasonal classics “Go Tell It On the Mountain,” “Born in Bethlehem”



What better way to celebrate this time of year than a visit from legendary, Grammy-winning gospel group, The Blind Boys of Alabama, who join Daryl Hall for a very special 49th edition of Live From Daryl’s House, premiering Dec. 15 exclusively at www.lfdh.com.





“This was a very special show for me, as I have been a fan of The Blind Boys of Alabama since I was about 14 years old,” enthused Daryl about their appearance. “I used to listen to them and groups like them after church on WDAS radio in Philly.”



Daryl joins the group, whose career spans over 70 years, with no signs of diminishing, for a six-song set of seasonal classics which includes “Born in Bethlehem,” “Can You Give Me a Drink,” “Go Tell It on the Mountain,” “It Came Upon a Midnight Clear,” “Last Month of the Year” and “Take the High Road.”





Since forming at the Alabama Institute for the Negro Blind at Talladega, Alabama, in 1939, The Blind Boys continue to tour nationally and internationally with founding member Jimmy Carter singing lead vocals. The group took home the Grammy Award for Best Traditional Soul Gospel Album four straight years from 2002 to 2005, then were inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame in 2007. In 2009, they were awarded the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award.





The group’s appearance on this month’s installment of the Webby and MTV O Music award-winning Internet series, with Daryl marks a return to Hall’s own foundation in Gospel music.





“They were a big influence on how I approach harmony,” he says. “I can’t believe I got to sing bass with them! They represent my REAL roots!”





The Blind Boys have earned praise for their interpretations of everything from traditional gospel favorites to contemporary spiritual material, and now country, by acclaimed songwriters as varied as Curtis Mayfield, Prince and Tom Waits. They’ve appeared on The Tonight Show, Late Night with David Letterman, the Grammy Awards telecast, 60 Minutes and their own PBS special as well as big-screen appearances in The Fighting Temptations and this year’s HOP. They also have recorded and toured with such diverse acts as Peter Gabriel, Tom Petty, Bonnie Raitt and Lou Reed. They also sport a daily Twitter message #BBwisdom. The group will wrap up an extensive U.S. concert tour, many of them with Nickel Creek’s Sara and Sean Watkins as opening act. Their critically acclaimed May 2011 release, Take the High Road, marked the Blind Boys’ first foray into country gospel, co-produced by Jamey Johnson, featuring guest vocalists Vince Gill, Willie Nelson, Hank Williams, Jr., Lee Ann Womack and the Oak Ridge Boys.





The past five years have marked a steady stream of superlatives and recognition for Live from Daryl’s House, with Hall receiving a Webby Award for Best Variety series from more than 10,000 entries at the 14th annual ceremony two years ago at N.Y.’s Cipriani Wall Street before garnering an O Music Award from MTV earlier this year.





Live from Daryl’s House is syndicated on TV nationally by Good Cop Bad Cop Productions in association with Scott Sternberg Productions and distributor Trifecta Entertainment & Media. Executive producers for the show include Hall and Scott Sternberg along with Daryl Hall manager Jonathan Wolfson.





Live from Daryl’s House is being shown weekly in over 80% of U.S. homes in the nation’s top 200 media markets, as well as all of the top 10, including New York (WPIX), L.A. (KTLA), Chicago (WGN), Dallas (KDAF) and Houston (KIAH). The show has also cleared in such key markets as Philadelphia (CBS-owned KYW), Boston (KBIN) and Atlanta (WATL), as well as a number of NBC, Fox and CBS-owned affiliates across the country. Most stations are airing a full hour with two original shows back to back on Saturday nights. The first week of the show did a .2 in national Nielsens, with the second week increasing 50% and several stations adding airings.





The 48 previous episodes of Live From Daryl’s House have featured a mix of well-known performers like Booker T and the MGs, Rob Thomas, Train, Smokey Robinson, The Doors’ Robby Krieger and Ray Manzarek, Toots Hibbert, Nick Lowe, K.T. Tunstall, Todd Rundgren, Dave Stewart, Goo Goo Dolls’ John Rzeznik and Fall Out Boy’s Patrick Stump along with newcomers such as Nikki Jean, Grace Potter & the Nocturnals, Mayer Hawthorne, Eric Hutchinson, Chromeo, Matt Nathanson, Parachute, Plain White T’s, soul diva Sharon Jones, Diane Birch, L.A. neo-R&B party band Fitz & the Tantrums, hot new alternative band Neon Trees and veteran alternative mainstays Guster.

Daryl Hall goes solo in Live From Daryl's House Oct. 15

Friday, October 14, 2011


Daryl Hall goes solo in Live From Daryl's House Oct. 15

Daryl Hall gets the “last laugh” on a very special edition of Live from Daryl’s House with the first of a two-part series spotlighting songs from his recent Verve Forecast solo album, Laughing Down Crying on the 47th and latest edition of the award-winning web series, premiering Oct. 15 exclusively at www.lfdh.com.





This month’s special installment of the Webby and MTV O Music award-winning Internet series, which made its nationally syndicated TV broadcast debut on most of the country’s top markets last month, finds Hall going it alone on a five-song set that includes the title track, “Talking to Myself,” “Eyes for You” and “Save Me” and “Lifetime of Love.” The episode will also feature March Fry, Daryl’s step-daughter, singing background vocals, which she also did on the album.





"I came up with that title, probably invented it, to describe that emotional turmoil," explains Daryl about Laughing Down Crying, his fifth solo studio album, and first since 1997’s Can’t Stop Dreaming. “It’s about being in both places at once, emotionally wired and depressed, confused and frustrated.”





“Why now?” asks Daryl rhetorically about the almost 14-year wait between solo efforts. “Why not now? At this point, I feel like my present and future, in a creative sense, is me.”





The five-song set includes the title track “Laughing Down Crying,” which Hall calls “my Fender Telecaster sound.” “Talking to Myself” is a nod to Daryl’s motto of “don’t fear the ‘80s,” he laughs. “Anybody can tell it’s me after the first 10 seconds, when my vocals come in.” “Lifetime of Love,” one of his final collaborations with T-Bone Wolk, confronts the “ups and downs in my emotional life,” while “Eyes for You” has “an amazing funk groove” which is unmistakably Daryl-esq. “Save Me” is a secular gospel song about going from “an isolated, solitary person” to being a person who feels the need to get it right, once and for all.”



Allmusic called the album “the work of a master musician doing what he does best—writing and performing beautifully crafted pop songs in terrific form—while proving that not only does he have plenty left to say in the new millennium, but has everything it takes to compete in the marketplace.”





The past four years have marked a steady stream of superlatives and recognition for Live from Daryl’s House, with Hall receiving a Webby Award for Best Variety series from more than 10,000 entries at the 14th annual ceremony two years ago at N.Y.’s Cipriani Wall Street before garnering an O Music Award from MTV earlier this year.





The show is syndicated nationally by Good Cop Bad Cop Productions in association with Scott Sternberg Productions and distributor Trifecta Entertainment & Media. Executive producers for the show include Hall and Scott Sternberg along with Daryl Hall manager Jonathan Wolfson.





“This is a dream come true for me,” said Daryl. “When I first had the idea for this series four years ago, I was hoping to reach a wide audience, and this is just another step in that plan.”

Live from Daryl’s House is being shown weekly in over 80% of U.S. homes in the nation’s top 200 media markets, as well as all of the top 10, including New York (WPIX), L.A. (KTLA), Chicago (WGN), Dallas (KDAF) and Houston (KIAH). The show has also cleared in such key markets as Philadelphia (CBS-owned KYW), Boston (KBIN) and Atlanta (WATL), as well as a number of NBC, Fox and CBS-owned affiliates across the country. Most stations are airing a full hour with two original shows back to back on Saturday nights. The first week of the show did a .2 in national Nielsens, with the second week increasing 50% and several stations adding airings.





The 46 previous episodes of Live From Daryl’s House have featured a mix of well-known performers like Booker T and the MGs, Rob Thomas, Train, Smokey Robinson, The Doors’ Robby Krieger and Ray Manzarek, Toots Hibbert, Nick Lowe, K.T. Tunstall, Todd Rundgren, Dave Stewart, Goo Goo Dolls’ John Rzeznik and Fall Out Boy’s Patrick Stump along with newcomers such as Nikki Jean, Grace Potter & the Nocturnals, Mayer Hawthorne, Eric Hutchinson, Chromeo, Matt Nathanson, Parachute, Plain White T’s, soul diva Sharon Jones, Diane Birch, L.A. neo-R&B party band Fitz & the Tantrums, hot new alternative band Neon Trees and veteran alternative mainstays Guster.





Daryl launched the free monthly web series in Nov., 2007, after having the light-bulb idea of “playing with my friends and putting it up on the Internet,” and the show has since garnered acclaim from Rolling Stone, SPIN, Daily Variety, CNN, BBC, Yahoo! Music and influential blogger Bob Lefsetz, who have cited Live From Daryl’s House as a perfect example of a veteran artist reinventing himself in the digital age by collaborating with both established and newer performers.

DARYL HALL AND GRACE POTTER MAKE BEAUTIFUL MUSIC TOGETHER ON LIVE FROM DARYL’S HOUSE ON EPISODE #45


                                
08.11.2011


OOH LA LA! DARYL HALL AND GRACE POTTER MAKE BEAUTIFUL MUSIC TOGETHER ON LIVE FROM DARYL’S HOUSE ON EPISODE #45 OF AWARD-WINNING

NEW YORK, Aug. 11, 2011— There’s a little bit of Paris and a lot of rock & roll when Hollywood Records recording group Grace Potter & the Nocturnals visit with Daryl Hall for the 45th and latest edition of Live From Daryl’s House, premiering Aug. 15 exclusively at www.lfdh.com. This month’s installment of the Webby and MTV O Music award-winning Internet series, which last year made its national television broadcast debut on WGN America to impressive ratings, will feature Potter, a collision of Tina Turner sass and vintage retro-glam, fronting the soul-infused, classic rock outfit with a decidedly modern bent. Formed at upstate New York’s St. Lawrence University, based in Vermont, Grace Potter & the Nocturnals have received numerous critical accolades, including being named One of the Best Bands of 2010 by Rolling Stone magazine.



The group’s self-titled album, their third major label release, produced by Mark Batson [Dave Matthews Band], featured the hit single “Paris (Ooh La La),” and debuted in the Top 20 on Billboard’s Top 200, reaching #1 on the iTunes Rock Album chart. GPN, known for playing over 200 shows a year, have built a loyal, dedicated fan base across the U.S. from their incendiary live concerts.



Potter recently made a special solo appearance at Los Angeles’s famed Hollywood Bowl, performing with Stevie Wonder, Sharon Jones and Janelle Monáe, among others. This summer, GPN made their debut on Bonnaroo’s main stage as well as at this year’s Lollapolooza festival in Chicago. The band will promote their first-ever Grand Point North Festival in Burlington, VT, on Aug. 13-14, then cap it all with a headlining show in New York’s Central Park Sept. 24.



The N.Y. Post called a recent GPN live show “…a sizzling concert… the performance was a gripping moment in music where a girl and her band (who’ve enjoyed critical and cult admiration) showed they could hold their own with the biggest acts in music.”



"Playing in Daryl Hall's living room is like stepping into a rock and roll time machine,” raved Grace. “And then they feed you, which is awesome. Daryl went above and beyond to make us feel welcome; even satiating my eternal thirst for old guitars and good wine. He's a class act.”



GPN joined Daryl to perform five songs from their self-titled release, including the serrated rock “Paris (Ooh La La),” which they performed recently on VH1’s Divas telecast, along with “Money,” “Goodbye Kiss,” “Low Road” and “Things I Never Needed.”



Hall and the band also collaborated on “Room to Breathe,” a 1976 classic written by Daryl, which appeared on the Bigger Than the Both of Us album, as well as a soaring cover of Jimmy Cliff’s reggae classic, “Many Rivers to Cross.”



Says Daryl: “Grace and the Nocturnals have the kind of classic-rock influences--including The Band, Little Feat, JJ Cale, Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, Van Morrison and Bob Dylan—that are very familiar to me, having experienced that era. We had a great time playing together.”



The past four years have marked a steady stream of superlatives and recognition for Live from Daryl’s House, with Hall receiving a Webby Award for Best Variety series from more than 10,000 entries before garnering an O Music Award from MTV earlier this year.



The 44 previous episodes of Live From Daryl’s House have featured a mix of well-known performers Booker T Jones, Rob Thomas, Train, Smokey Robinson, The Doors’ Robby Krieger and Ray Manzarek, Toots Hibbert, Nick Lowe, K.T. Tunstall, Todd Rundgren, Travie McCoy, Dave Stewart, Goo Goo Dolls’ John Rzeznik and Fall Out Boy’s Patrick Stump along with newcomers such as Mayer Hawthorne, Eric Hutchinson, Chromeo, Cash Money rocker Kevin Rudolf, Matt Nathanson, Parachute, Plain White T’s, Eli “Paperboy” Reed, soul diva Sharon Jones, Diane Birch, L.A. neo-R&B party band Fitz & the Tantrums, hot new alternative band Neon Trees and veteran alternative mainstays Guster.



Daryl launched the free monthly web series in November, 2007, after having the light-bulb idea of “playing with my friends and putting it up on the Internet,” and the show has since garnered acclaim from Rolling Stone, SPIN, Daily Variety, CNN, BBC, Yahoo! Music and influential blogger Bob Lefsetz, who have cited Live From Daryl’s House as a perfect example of a veteran artist reinventing himself in the digital age by collaborating with both established and newer performers. The show marked its broadcast debut New Year’s Eve on Superstation WGN America, where it improved ratings for the time period by almost 75%.



Daryl also recently performed a live version of the show with friend and former LFDH guest, Todd Rundgren, to a sold out venue in Atlantic City.

Live from Daryl’s House features Booker T. Jones 7/15

Press Release -

Stax Hall of Famer Booker T. of the MGs fame joins Daryl Hall for the second part of their classic soul jam, premiering July 15

NEW YORK, July 12, 2011—Philadelphia soul meets the Memphis blues again when legendary Hammond B-3 keyboardist Booker T. Jones jams with Daryl Hall on the second half of a very special Live From Daryl’s House, premiering July 15 exclusively at http://www.lfdh.com/. In June, Daryl and Booker T. were joined by R&B breakthrough artist Mayer Hawthorne, while this month’s 44th installment of the Webby and MTV O Music award-winning Internet series, which last year made its broadcast debut on WGN America to impressive ratings, will feature Hall and Jones performing some of their most memorable songs.

The Memphis-born Booker T. Jones was honored with induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and a Grammy lifetime achievement award for his genre-defining Hammond B-3 organ work with the renowned Stax Records group Booker T and the MGs alongside guitarist Steve Cropper, bassist Donald “Duck” Dun and Al Jackson Jr. His new solo album, The Road from Memphis, which was released in May on Anti- Records, features cameos by Lou Reed, My Morning Jacket’s Jim James and Sharon Jones. The L.A. Times said, “Jones makes a quietly convincing case that when it comes to soul music, all roads do seem to lead to Memphis.” Booker T., who has collaborated with a who’s-who of popular music greats, including Ray Charles, Otis Redding, Bill Withers, Rufus Thomas, Carla Thomas, Neil Young, Stephen Stills and Willie Nelson, among many others, had a blast playing with Daryl on the show.

“One of the nicest things about performing on Live from Daryl's House is that Daryl has surrounded himself with musicians who can 'hear,’” enthused Booker T. “That is, each one has talent to the extent of being capable of performing as a soloist on his own, not needing to be told the proper notes to sing or play.”

Daryl and his guest performed a six-song set which included the Booker T. and the MGs classic “Green Onions” and “Down In Memphis,” from his new album, as well as such Stax hits as “Born Under a Bad Sign,” recorded by Albert King and co-written by Booker T. and William Bell; Eddie Floyd’s “I’ve Never Found a Girl (To Love Me Like You Do)” and William Bell’s “Everyday Will Be Like a Holiday.” The set concludes with a rousing version of Daryl Hall and John Oates classic, “I Can’t Go for That (No Can Do.).”

Says Daryl: “I grew up listening to Booker T. and the MGs. It’s an absolute privilege to have him on the show and be able to play alongside him. It doesn't get more soulful than that.”

“I love the 'at home' atmosphere of performing on the show,” added Booker T. “Daryl's immediate and extended family stay near and furnish his guests with food, warmth and an audience.”

Live from Daryl's House features Mayer Hawthorne and Booker T. Jones

NEW YORK, June 13, 2011—New school meets old school when rising soul sensation Mayer Hawthorne and legendary Memphis organ player Booker T. Jones join Daryl Hall on a special two-part episode which premieres with the 43rd edition of Live From Daryl’s House. The newest installment of the Webby and MTV O Music award-winning Internet series, which last year made its broadcast debut on WGN America to impressive ratings, will debut at www.lfdh.com on June 15, followed by an episode featuring Daryl and Booker T. with Hawthorne as the guest artist on July 15.

Mayer Hawthorne was born in Ann Arbor, MI, listening on the car radio to the rich soul music coming out of the Motor City. He counts Isaac Hayes, Leroy Hutson, Mike Terry and Barry White among his influences, but draws the most inspiration from Smokey Robinson, Curtis Mayfield and the legendary Motown songwriting team of Holland-Dozier-Holland, which he shares with Daryl. After several critically acclaimed releases for the independent Stones Throw label, Hawthorne signed with Universal Republic for his upcoming new album, How Do You Do, and is currently on tour with Bruno Mars and Janelle Monáe.

"I'm all about fun, and Live from Daryl’s House was one of the most fun things I've ever done,” enthused Hawthorne. “I want to be there every month."

Accompanied by the great keyboardist Booker T. Jones, a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member from his work with the renowned Stax Records group Booker T and the MGs, which also included guitarist Steve Cropper, bassist Donald “Duck” Dunn and drummer Al Jackson Jr. (“Green Onions”), Hawthorne and Daryl performed a six-song set for the first installment of the two-part series.

“I love the 'at home' atmosphere of performing 'at Daryl's House’,” marveled Jones. “Daryl's immediate and extended family stay near and furnish his guests with food, warmth and an audience.”

Hawthorne sings four of his own originals, including “A Strange Arrangement,” the title track from his 2009 debut album; “Just Ain’t Gonna Work Out,” his first single; “No Strings,” released in April as a 10” single, and “Your Easy Lovin’ Ain’t Pleasin’ Nothin’,” a song featured on an episode in the fourth season of TV’s Ugly Betty. In addition, Mayer and Daryl perform a pair of Daryl Hall & John Oates classics, “You Make My Dreams Come True” and “Private Eyes.”

Says Daryl: “This kid is the real deal. He and I share musical tastes, and it’s so great seeing a young artist like Mayer embrace classic soul and R&B. He’s part of a new wave that I call ‘NU-Soul.’”

The past two years have marked a steady stream of superlatives and recognition for Live from Daryl’s House, with Hall receiving a Webby Award for Best Variety series from more than 10,000 entries at the 14th annual ceremony last year at N.Y.’s Cipriani Wall Street, then recently garnering an O Music Award from MTV.

The 42 previous episodes of Live From Daryl’s House have featured a mix of well-known performers Rob Thomas, Train, Smokey Robinson, The Doors’ Robby Krieger and Ray Manzarek, Toots Hibbert, Nick Lowe, K.T. Tunstall, Todd Rundgren, Travie McCoy, Dave Stewart, Goo Goo Dolls’ John Rzeznik and Fall Out Boy’s Patrick Stump along with newcomers such as Eric Hutchinson, Chromeo, Cash Money rocker Kevin Rudolf, Matt Nathanson, Parachute, Plain White T’s, Eli “Paperboy” Reed, soul diva Sharon Jones, Diane Birch, L.A. neo-R&B party band Fitz & the Tantrums, hot new alternative band Neon Trees and veteran alternative mainstays Guster.

Daryl launched the free monthly webcast in November, 2007, after having the light-bulb idea of “playing with my friends and putting it up on the Internet,” and the show has since garnered acclaim from Rolling Stone, SPIN, Daily Variety, CNN, BBC, Yahoo! Music and influential blogger Bob Lefsetz, who have cited Live From Daryl’s House as a perfect example of a veteran artist reinventing himself in the digital age by collaborating with both established and newer performers.

LIVE FROM DARYL’S HOUSE: JOHN RZEZNIK FROM THE GOO GOO DOLLS JOINS DARYL HALL FOR 42ND EDITION OF AWARD-WINNING WEB SERIES

Rzeznik and Hall collaborate on Goo Goo Dolls, rare Daryl Hall and John Oates songs for May 15 premiere



NEW YORK, May 12, 2011—Daryl Hall and the Goo Goo Doll’s John Rzeznik know a little something about what it takes to be a lead singer in a rock band, and they put that experience to good use on a selection from the catalog of both groups on the 42nd edition of Live From Daryl’s House. The newest installment of the Webby and MTV O Music award-winning Internet series, which last year made its broadcast debut on WGN America to impressive ratings, will debut at www.lfdh.com on May 15.



The show brought together Hall and Rzeznik for a day-long session that included a stellar seven song set. The two collaborated on the Goo Goo’s hits, “Iris” and “Slide,” both from 1998’s triple-platinum Dizzy Up the Girl, with the former also appearing on the City of Angels soundtrack album, where it spent a record-breaking 18 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 Airplay charts and was nominated for three Grammys. Daryl and Johnny also perform a pair of songs from the Goo Goo Dolls’ 2010 album, Something for the Rest of Us, including “Home” and “Still Your Song.” The three Daryl Hall penned numbers featured are “Did It in a Minute,” a Top 10 hit from 1981’s Private Eyes, “Some Things Are Better Left Unsaid,” on 1984’s Big Bam Boom and the rare “Want To,” originally included on 1997’s Marigold Sky, a co-write with the late T-Bone Wolk.



“It was an amazing day of playing music with a legend and then sitting down for dinner afterward,” marveled Rzeznik about his appearance. “Definitely a day I will always remember.”



Says Daryl: “I love John! He’s a great singer with a quick sense of humor and to my surprise, a really professional cook. He can come over anytime and rattle those pots and pans.”

Goo Goo Dolls have remained one of the most acclaimed songwriting forces in rock music for over two decades. The Grammy-nominated, multi-format chart toppers have enjoyed a string of hits that have earned the band the all-time airplay record for “The Most Top 10 Hit Singles in History,” according to Billboard’s Nielsen BDS-based Adult Top 40 chart. Singer/songwriter John Rzeznik has been the recipient of the Songwriters Hall of Fame Hal David Starlight Award, and has penned a series of hits beginning in 1995 with the #1 “Name,” “Iris” and “Slide,” followed by “Black Balloon,” “Broadway,” “Here is Gone,” “Big Machine,” “Sympathy,” “Better Days,” “Stay With You” and “Let Love In.” Goo Goo Dolls’ newest album, Something for the Rest of Us, debuted at # 7 on the Billboard Top 200 chart, earning raves from such media outlets as Billboard and USA Today.



The past 18 months have marked a steady stream of superlatives and recognition for Live from Daryl’s House, with Hall receiving a Webby Award for Best Variety series from more than 10,000 entries at the 14th annual ceremony last summer at N.Y.’s Cipriani Wall Street.



The 41 previous episodes of Live From Daryl’s House have featured a mix of well-known performers Rob Thomas, Train, Smokey Robinson, The Doors’ Robby Krieger and Ray Manzarek, Toots Hibbert, Nick Lowe, K.T. Tunstall, Todd Rundgren, Travie McCoy, Dave Stewart and Fall Out Boy’s Patrick Stump along with newcomers such as Eric Hutchinson, Chromeo, Cash Money rocker Kevin Rudolf, Matt Nathanson, Parachute, Plain White T’s, Eli “Paperboy” Reed, soul diva Sharon Jones, Diane Birch, L.A. neo-R&B party band Fitz & the Tantrums, hot new alternative band Neon Trees and veteran alternative mainstays Guster.

SWEET WEBSHOWS ARE MADE OF THIS: DARYL HALL AND DAVE STEWART JOIN FORCES ON THE 41ST EDITION OF LIVE FROM DARYL’S HOUSE

Tuesday, April 12, 2011
Renowned producer and former Eurythmics member teams with Daryl for a set that spotlights their solo outputs on latest edition of the hit webseries on April 15

NEW YORK, April 12, 2011—Daryl Hall and Dave Stewart know a little something about being part of platinum-plus duos, and they take that experience both with—and without—their famous partners to explore some gems in the 41st and latest webisode of Live From Daryl’s House. The newest installment of the Webby award-winning Internet series, which recently made its broadcast debut on WGN America to impressive ratings, will debut at www.lfdh.com on April 15.

The show reunited the two veteran musicians, who worked together when Stewart co-produced Daryl’s 1986 solo album, Three Hearts in the Happy Ending Machine. A member of the Eurythmics with Annie Lenox and an award-winning producer, Stewart joined Daryl at his home for a set that featured the Top 40 single from that album in “Dreamtime,” along with two classic Eurythmics hits, “Missionary Man” and “Here Comes the Rain Again,” the latter featuring Daryl on piano and Dave on acoustic guitar. The pair also perform “The Gypsy Girl and Me,” an autobiographical song from Stewart’s upcoming album, The Blackbird Diaries, which he recorded at the famed Nashville studio and comes out June 28 on Weapons of Mass Entertainment/Surfdog Records through Razor & Tie Music.





Stewart’s career spans more than 30 years and more than 100 million album sales, plus a Lifetime Achievement Award with Lenox. One of the most sought-after writers and music producers, Dave has crafted songs for and collaborated with the likes of Mick Jagger, Bono, Tom Petty, and Gwen Stefani, among many others, and has shared the stage with everybody from BB King, U2, Eric Clapton, Bruce Springsteen and Bob Dylan. His new album, The Blackbird Diaries, features a co-write with Bob Dylan and another with Stevie Nicks as well as duets with Nicks, Martina McBride, Colbie Caillat and a cameo by The Secret Sisters.





Dave called his appearance on Live from Daryl’s House “better than being a guest on any other music show on the planet….Daryl Hall has created a flawless TV show that organically combines great songwriting and performance, capturing on film the excitement and camaraderie that exists amongst artists who love music as opposed to the ever present shallow and competitive world of crass talent shows.”





Dave adds: “When you watch ‘Live From Daryl's House,’ you feel as if you are there having fun with them. Fortunately, I was there and it's just as much fun as you think it is, plus I got to eat and drink there afterwards and get carried out by Daryl Himself!”





Says Daryl: "Playing and hanging out with Dave was just as creative and fun as it always is every time we get together. He's my buddy and he's the best!"





The past 18 months have marked a steady stream of superlatives and recognition for Live from Daryl’s House, with Hall receiving a Webby Award for Best Variety series from more than 10,000 entries at the 14th annual ceremony last summer at N.Y.’s Cipriani Wall Street.





The 40 previous episodes of Live From Daryl’s House have featured a mix of well-known performers Rob Thomas, Train, Smokey Robinson, The Doors’ Robby Krieger and Ray Manzarek, Toots Hibbert, Nick Lowe, K.T. Tunstall, Todd Rundgren, Travie McCoy and Fall Out Boy’s Patrick Stump along with newcomers such as Eric Hutchinson, Chromeo, Cash Money rocker Kevin Rudolf, Matt Nathanson, Parachute, Plain White T’s, Eli “Paperboy” Reed, soul diva Sharon Jones, Diane Birch, L.A. neo-R&B party band Fitz & the Tantrums, hot new alternative band Neon Trees and veteran alternative mainstays Guster.

Daryl launched the free monthly webcast in November, 2007, after having the light-bulb idea of “playing with my friends and putting it up on the Internet,” and the show has since garnered acclaim from Rolling Stone, SPIN, Daily Variety, CNN, BBC, Yahoo! Music and influential blogger Bob Lefsetz, who have cited Live From Daryl’s House as a perfect example of a veteran artist reinventing himself in the digital age by collaborating with both established and newer performers. The show marked its broadcast debut New Year’s Eve on superstation WGN American in Chicago, where its improved ratings for the time period almost 75%.

Todd Rundgren Daryl's Guest On The Next Live From Daryl's House

DARYL HALL & TODD RUNDGREN REUNITE FOR THE 40th EDITION OF LIVE FROM DARYL’S HOUSE, THIS TIME LIVE FROM TODD’S HOUSE IN HAWAII
Monday, March 14, 2011
Original Philly soul fans tackle each other’s hits for a very special “Luau Show” episode of the hit web series

NEW YORK, March. 14, 2011—Daryl Hall takes the 40th and latest webisode of Live From Daryl’s House to Kauai, Hawaii, where he and old Philly pal Todd Rundgren join together live from Todd’s house for a rousing seven-song set that includes Daryl Hall and John Oates’ “Beanie G and the Rose Tattoo” and a cover of the Delfonics’ 1970 hit, “Didn’t I Blow Your Mind This Time.” The newest installment of the Webby award-winning Internet series, which recently made its broadcast debut on WGN in Chicago to impressive ratings, will debut at www.lfdh.com on March 15.

Hall and Rundgren have known each other since the ‘60s, when they were both fledgling musicians in Philadelphia, with a love of R&B, soul and doo-wop groups, reflected in their earliest music. The two previously paired up in a previous Live from Daryl’s House and now Todd returns the favor, with some down-home hospitality that includes an old-fashioned Luau Show, burying a pig in the dirt, serving up some amazing poi, with fire, hula dancers and a special performance with local musicians of “Bang on the Drum.”

“It’s always great when friends come all the way out here to visit,” laughed Todd. “It’s even better when they come to play. Thanks, Daryl!”

“What a blast to get together with Todd on his own turf,” added Daryl. “Whether we’re in Philadelphia, New York or Hawaii, the camaraderie and food are always good, and the music even better.”

Daryl and Todd collaborated on a seven-song set that included “Beanie G and the Rose Tattoo,” from the War Babies album, along with Hall’s “Everytime You Go Away,” originally on Voices. There are also performances of Rundgren’s “Last Ride,” “I Saw the Light” and “Wouldn’t Have Made Any Difference.” The set climaxes with a raucous “Bang on the Drum” that includes a troupe of Kauai percussionists who do just that.

The past 18 months have marked a steady stream of superlatives and recognition for Live from Daryl’s House, with Hall receiving a Webby Award for Best Variety series from more than 10,000 entries at the 14th annual ceremony last summer at N.Y.’s Cipriani Wall Street.

The 39 previous episodes of Live From Daryl’s House have featured a mix of well-known performers like Rob Thomas, Train’s Pat Monahan, Jose Feliciano, Smokey Robinson, The Doors’ Robby Krieger and Ray Manzarek, Toots Hibbert, Nick Lowe, K.T. Tunstall, Todd Rundgren, Travie McCoy and Patrick Stump along with newcomers such Eric Hutchinson, Cash Money rocker Kevin Rudolf, Matt Nathanson, Parachute, Plain White T’s, Eli “Paperboy” Reed, soul diva Sharon Jones, Diane Birch, Fitz & the Tantrums, hot new alternative band Neon Trees and veteran alternative mainstays Guster.

Daryl launched the free monthly webcast in November 2007 after having the light-bulb idea of “playing with my friends and putting it up on the Internet,” and the show has since garnered acclaim from Rolling Stone, SPIN, Daily Variety, CNN, BBC, Yahoo! Music and influential blogger Bob Lefsetz, who have cited Live From Daryl’s House as a perfect example of a veteran artist reinventing himself in the digital age by collaborating with both established and newer performers.

That’s the date of the online premiere for the two-hour Live from Daryl’s House, A New Year’s Eve Special, which garnered record ratings for WGN America in Chicago, where it first aired last Dec. 31. The show features highlights of the previous three years of LFDH, as Daryl Hall collaborates with Rob Thomas, Neon Trees, Train, Smokey Robinson, John Oates, Todd Rundgren, Sharon Jones, Eli Reed, Patrick Stump, Toots, Fitz and the Tantrums and Jose Feliciano, typifying the show’s eclectic mix of veteran performers and the next generation of musical superstars.

“From the reactions we’ve received since the show started almost three years ago, I knew we had something unique,” said Daryl. “And the broadcast TV ratings simply bear that out. It’s very gratifying and a tribute to the many talented artists who’ve appeared on the show. If you build it, they will come.”

Tribune President of Programming Sean Compton told an audience at the recent NATPE programming convention that he was delighted with the results, pointing to Live from Daryl’s House as a prime example of what it takes for a web series to succeed on traditional TV. “It’s an Internet show we slapped on and reached 78 million homes without much promotion,” he said. “That it did so well is a testament to the organically grown program itself. Daryl’s show makes television cool. There is a certain vibe to it that television could use more of.”

The past two years have marked a steady stream of superlatives and recognition for Live from Daryl’s House, with Hall receiving a Webby Award for Best Variety series from more than 10,000 entries at the 14th annual ceremony last summer at N.Y.’s Cipriani Wall Street.

DARYL HALL AND ALTERNATIVE ROCKERS GUSTER RING IN A NEW YEAR WITH THE 38th AND LATEST EDITION OF LIVE FROM DARYL’S HOUSE



01.12.2011
NEW YORK, Jan. 12, 2011—Daryl Hall revisits his 1980, Robert Fripp-produced solo debut, Sacred Songs, for a rare performance of “Babs and Babs,” with Guster’s Ryan Miller, Luke Reynolds and Brian Rosenworcel, for the first new Live from Daryl’s House web show of the year. The 38th and newest installment of the Webby award-winning Internet series, which recently made its broadcast debut with a 2 hour New Years Eve Special on WGN America to impressive ratings, will debut at www.lfdh.com on Jan. 15.

Guster was formed by Ryan Miller, Brian Rosenworcel and Adam Gardner in 1991 while attending Tufts University in Medford, Massachusetts. They’ve gone on to record six studio albums, their latest, Easy Wonderful, came out last year on Aware/Universal Republic and garnered the group some of its best reviews to date. The Wall Street Journal’s John Jurgensen praised the album's "jangly, ebullient rock with lots of bright open spaces [but] in the midst of all that sunny pop, there are shadows lurking." Magnet magazine called the release “the best thing the band’s ever done… We can’ t tell you how much we love the new Guster album.” A renowned touring attraction, Guster performs more than 250 shows a year with the likes of John Mayer, Ben Folds, Nickel Creek, Pete Yorn and Rufus Wainwright. The Oakland Press raved that the group’s local concert “left the crowd screaming for more,” while the Philadelphia Weekly was equally enthused: “Entertaining and humorous… What’s not to love?”

“It's an awesome concept for a show,” said Brian Rosenworcel about his experience on Live from Daryl’s House. “Artists who mutually respect each other learn to play each other's music and expose it to their fans, followed by a gourmet meal.”

“This was, for sure, one of the Top Seven Things I Have Done With My Band,” added Ryan Miller. “Just don’t ask me about the other six.”

Daryl and Guster joined on a six-song set that included “Do You Love Me” and “Bad Bad World,” a pair of tracks from the band’s latest album,Easy Wonderful, as well as “Satellite and “Hang On” from their previous release, ‘06’s Ganging up on the Sun, on Reprise Records. The set was topped off with versions of Daryl Hall and John Oates’ “Rich Girl” and a rare version of “Babs and Babs” from Daryl’s Sacred Songs.

“The guys have a great sense of humor” said Daryl. “I didn’t even mind that they practically cleaned out my wine cellar.”

The past 18 months have marked a steady stream of superlatives and recognition for Live from Daryl’s House, with Hall receiving a Webby Award for Best Variety series from more than 10,000 entries at the 14th annual ceremony last summer at N.Y.’s Cipriani Wall Street.

Tunstall, Todd Rundgren, Gym Class Heroes’ Travis McCoy and Fall Out Boy’s Patrick Stump along with newcomers such as Eric Hutchinson, Kevin Rudolf, Matt Nathanson, Chromeo, Parachute, Chicago rock band Plain White T’s, Boston bluesman Eli “Paperboy” Reed, soul diva Sharon Jones, Diane Birch, Fitz & the Tantrums and Neon Trees.
