Zane Carney joins the bill

Zane Carney – guitarist for John Mayer – joins the bill with Rough Church and River’s Edge at UFO April 25


Referred to as "the best guitarist in NY and LA" by U2's Bono, Zane Carney is the lead guitarist of rock quartet Carney - and rhythm guitarist in John Mayer's band. At this year's Bluesfest he debuted his solo material on the MOJO stage at 4pm before taking the stage with John Mayer later that evening. We are very happy to announce that he’s supporting LA’s Rough Church at New Lynn’s UFO on Friday April 25th.

‘Confluence’ is Zane Carney's much-anticipated debut record as a solo artist. An independently released 7 song EP, Confluences showcases Zane's strengths as a lead singer, songwriter and world-class guitarist while providing a fresh and revealing perspective of the young gunslinger behind LA's Rock Quartet CARNEY.

Zane has collaborated with the likes of John Mayer, Justin Timberlake, Bono and Edge and David Foster to name a few. When CARNEY took a pause from touring so Zane could join the original cast of Broadway's Spider-Man Turn Off The Dark, Zane discovered a calling hidden in plain slight; one that would involve his voice.

Zane Carney will be one of the night’s supports for Los Angeles musical lynchpin - and passionate NZ music fan - Greg Franco’s band Rough Church. Greg is marking the 10-year anniversary of his New Zealand collaborations, first sparked by a spell here recording with Robert Scott and David Kilgour of the Clean in Dunedin in 2004.

By the time they arrive, Rough Church will have just released a new album on the Powertool label – capturing the spirit of our busy modern lives, it’s titled ‘46 Missed Calls (Live at KPFK)’, recorded half live at EStudio and the other half recorded during a live broadcast on LA radio station KPFK-FM, on the Mark Torres radio show (http://www.kpfk.org). A number of the new songs feature lyrics penned by New Zealand poet and Greg’s friend David Eggleton.

Rough Church live showcases the considerable talents of Kaitlin Wolfberg on violin and keyboards and Andy Sykora on drums/percussion. Rough Church have also have a local connection – for this tour they will be joined by Wellingtonian Kedron Parker on bass, who has shared countless bills with Franco for many years in L.A. before she moved to Wellington in 2003. Parker is currently known for her public art sound installation Kumutoto Stream which runs in the Woodward Street pedestrian tunnel in the Wellington CBD.

River’s Edge
Chris Baigent
, lead singer and songwriter for River’s Edge, has been writing songs with a distinct New Zealand flavour for the past 10 years - songs influenced by homegrown musicians such as David Kilgour, Chris Knox and The Clean; with other influences including songwriters Neil Young, Paul Kelly and Bob Dylan.
Powertool Records recently released the new River’s Edge album ‘Cambridge Town’, inspired by Chris’ time in London and then Cambridge in 2003/4, where he began writing whilst studying Bob Dylan's entire record collection. The new songs weave together poetry and stories about his surrounding environment, inspired by the old architecture and people of this busy university town. These songs emerge from a fresh-faced “Kiwi” experiencing life abroad for the first time; and Chris says, “I guess you could call this album my ‘thesis on Dylan’”. And, most appropriately, Baigent is now living in New Zealand's own Cambridge.
Here’s the video for ‘Love Speak’ has also just been released: (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7-ucY_pcXRM)

Gordon Campbell: On Chuck Berry (And James Comey, And Bill English)

Back when many people were still treating rock’n’roll as a passing fad – was calypso going to be the new thing? – Chuck Berry knew that it had changed popular music forever. What is even more astonishing is that this 30-ish black r&b musician from a middle class family in St Louis could manage to recreate the world of white teenagers, at a time when the very notion of a “teenager” had just been invented.

Howard Davis Review:
The Baroque Fusion Of L'arpeggiata

Named after a toccata by German composer Girolamo Kapsberger, L'Arpeggiata produces its unmistakable sonority mainly from the resonance of plucked strings, creating a tightly-woven acoustic texture that is both idiosyncratic and immediately identifiable. Director Christina Pluhar engenders this distinctive tonality associated with the ensemble she founded in 2000 by inviting musicians and vocalists from around the world to collaborate on specific projects illuminated by her musicological research.

Scoop Review Of Books: We’re All Lab Rats

A couple of years ago, there were reports that Silicon Valley executives were sending their children to tech-free schools. It was a story that dripped of irony: geeks in the heart of techno-utopia rejecting their ideology when it came to their own kids. But the story didn’t catch on, and an awkward question lingered. Why were the engineers of the future desperate to part their gadgets from their children? More>>
