It is with great pleasure that we unveil a very special guest for our upcoming show at the Lincoln Center Atrium! On Thursday, November 7th, at 7:30 sharp, yMusic will take the stage to play a set of mostly new pieces. Midway through, we will be joined by a new collaborator, Blake Mills, for a set of his songs. Blake is one of the most unique and talented guitarists alive, and has worked with an enviable group of artists on stage and in the studio, including Fiona Apple, Lucinda Williams, Julian Casablancas and Conor Oberst.
In addition to his collaborative work, Blake is an excellent singer and songwriter, and will be releasing an album in early 2014 on Verve Records. It was in this capacity that he met yMusic’s Rob Moose, who was asked to arrange and record strings for some of the new songs. The experience was so rewarding that they immediately began scheming an opportunity to play the material live, and the Atrium show will be the debut of this collaboration.
