      BHI BHIMAN, Meklit {e_name}amp; Quinn

      Bhi Bhiman is an American original, and yet he seems transported from an era when songs were more important than the pretty faces that delivered them. His rich, bellowing tenor can soothe or explode at a moment's notice. His lived-in, knowing delivery belies his years. His songwriting, too, is quick to captivate. Bhi's mix of humor and deep empathy puts him in the company of distinguished (and much older) lifelong songsmiths like John Prine, Nick Lowe and Randy Newman. And Bhiman's technical, emotive guitar playing rises to the challenge that his striking voice presents. A featured performer at the recent Prince Tribute at Carnegie Hall, (along with Elvis Costello, D'Angelo and others) his performance was lauded by Rolling Stone: -"the best performance of the evening or at least the most memorable was Bhi Bhiman's solo acoustic take on 'When Doves Cry,' his vocals giving off a haunted air that left the crowd speechless." Bhi will celebrate the release of his album, aptly titled Substitute Preacher, at St. Cyprian's Church on May 18th. He will be joined by his band plus many special guests. Ethiopian-American singer-songwriter Meklit Hadero's music and life are inextricably linked to the rich cultural tapestry of her background. A catchy crossroads of Chicago blues and New Orleans soul and gospel, singer/guitarist Quinn DeVeaux has been packing dance floors in the Bay Area and beyond for years. Now, for the first time, these two artists join forces. This magnetic duo lend an all-new gloss to MGMT, Stevie Wonder, Neil Young, Talking Heads, Lou Reed and Arcade Fire. "Meklit {e_description}amp; Quinn" was released by Porto Franco Records, last September, to national critical acclaim.
