Jay Brannan Announces 27-Date U.S. Tour; New Album 'Rob Me Blind' Out Now

With his sophomore album Rob Me Blind out this week, NYC-based singer/songwriter Jay Brannan has announced a U.S. summer tour in support of the release. The 27-date trek starts in Boston at the Brighton Music Hall on July 18th and wraps in his home city of New York at the Highline Ballroom on August 25th.

Listen to Jay's cover of Nicki Minaj's "Super Bass" live from Eddie's Attic:

Jay’s rabid online following combined with his penchant for connecting with live audiences has allowed him to tour the world multiple times in the past few years, often playing to sold-out rooms across the globe. Usually performing alone with guitar, each show is peppered with a healthy amount of commentary, often expounding on the observations, adventures, and frustrations of his daily life. Jay has also been know to throw in a few covers of his favorite songs, ranging from Joni Mitchell and Bob Dylan to Adele and (as linked to above) Nicki Minaj.

For the follow-up to his 2008 critically acclaimed debut album goddamned, Jay teamed up with his dream producer, David Kahne (Regina Spektor, Paul McCartney, The Bangles, Lana Del Rey). Rob Me Blind maintains the signature qualities of a Jay Brannan album--brutal honesty, sharp wit and sparkling melodies--while showcasing Kahne's thoughtful production abilities.

Chinese-Born, Vancouver-Based Artist Wanting To Release Debut Album April 24, 2012


Chinese-born, Vancouver-based singer/songwriter Wanting has joined Nettwerk’s label, management and publishing rosters, and will release her debut full-length studio album Everything In The World on April 24, 2012. Whether penned in her native tongue of Chinese or English (which she only learned to speak at age 16), Wanting’s piano-swept music has already won a following because her compositions—pop musings that plumb emotion—resonate universally.

Angus Stone - Bird On The Buffalo (Radio Edit) by nettwerk music group

Available today, Angus Stone – of critically acclaimed sibling duo, Angus & Julia Stone - shares lead single, “Bird On The Buffalo,” from his forthcoming summer solo release titled Broken Brights.

While on the road in Europe, Stone sat in a hotel room, musing on the symbiotic relationships between the bird and the buffalo, the co-operative behavior between two very different species, working together for mutual survival.

This is Stone. In order to challenge himself as both a musician and performer, Stone draws upon a variety of unexpected sources – instrumentation, vocal stylings, genres – to create his song, “to let the conversation of the energy unfold into a creation,” says Stone.
