Boz Scaggs with Catherine Russell
Fans who have followed BOZ SCAGGS’ remarkable career will recall the ‘60s when he performed with the Steve Miller Band, his solo triumphs with such classic albums as Silk Degrees (1976) and Middle Man (1980) and the splendid assurance of late-period high points like Some Change (1994) and Dig (2001). Scaggs has a deft touch as a singer. His soul is effortless and deeply felt, never making a show of itself, but unmistakably evident in every lyric he delivers. His latest album is A Fool to Care. “I’m at a point where I’m having a lot of fun with music, more than ever,” he said. “It’s like I’m just going wherever I want to go with it.”
CATHERINE RUSSELL is a one-of-akind musician and vocalist. Her voice is full blown femininity incarnate — a dusky, stalwart and soulful instrument that radiates power yet remains touchingly vulnerable. She has toured the world, performing and recording with David Bowie, Steely Dan, Cyndi Lauper, Jackson Browne, Michael Feinstein, Levon Helm, Paul Simon, Rosanne Cash, Carrie Smith and many others. Since the 2006 release of her debut album, Cat, five acclaimed and charttopping albums have followed. In 2012, Russell won a Grammy for her appearance as a featured artist on the soundtrack album for the HBO TV series Boardwalk Empire.
