The songwriter's songwriter, James Maddock, who has earned the respect of masterful writers such as Bruce Springsteen and Willie Nile, has built his acclaimed legacy on humbly honoring purity of expression. Many albums in his beloved catalog are elegantly spare, conveying his songs and sentiments in the most direct possible way. But for his latest album, The Green, the songs guided him into recording the most eclectic, exhilaratingly soulful, and imaginatively produced album in his career. "This is my best album. It's an upbeat record with really strong songs and a lot of surprises," the British transplant reveals. "It all happened really naturally. I just listened to where the songs where going and allowed myself the time to give each one a proper sonic home." Since 1999, James Maddock's boldly vulnerable songwriting, honeyed rasp, and distinct folk and Americana aesthetic have garnered acclaim from icons, peers, and tastemaking outlets like NPR, American Songwriter, Relix Magazine, and CMT Edge. Relix notes: "James Maddock possesses the kind of lived-in, craggy voice that would sound authoritative if he were singing the sports pages. Fortunately, he doesn't need to do that because his compositional skills are a match for his delivery." His consistency as a recording artist and a captivating live performer have attracted a devoted fanbase engaged and generous enough to fan fund the last two entries in his six-album oeuvre. He's performed with Bruce Springsteen, Willie Nile, Aaron Comess (Spin Doctors) and David Immergluck (Counting Crows), sang on an album with Susan McKeown, and has built a respected international profile through tireless touring from the Northeast US to Europe to Australia. Joy Askew Joy Askew arrived in NYC from the North of England in the early 1980's and made a splash on the music scene playing with many artists including Joe Jackson, Laurie Anderson, Peter Gabriel, Rodney Crowell and New York's own Willie Nile. She also appeared in Laurie Anderson's concert film "Home of The Brave" In the late 90's her first solo album was released and since then she has released 7 more. Askew has opened live for David Byrne and David Bowie among others, played and sung on albums by James Maddock and Sufjan Stevens and more, collaborated with the most famous brass band in England and is now currently working on songs for a new album with a new band. She lives in Brooklyn and SW France. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=359162 City Winery City Winery
