Description For one sure-to-be-legendary night, The Next Wave of Song brings together three of the most acclaimed singer/songwriters in contemporary pop music performing stripped-down, solo sets of their uncompromising work. Wainwright’s tenor vocals and opulent piano melodies are rooted in Tin Pan Alley and Randy Newman, but make for a style uniquely his own. Ndegeocello blurs musical genres with her sophisticated mix of sweet, raucous, and desperately personal rock and funky soul. Orton fuses elements of classic English acoustic folk with trip and hip-hop rhythms in an utterly beguiling and original sound. These are artists who share deep passion and insight about love, faith, loyalty, and self-respect. If Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, Marvin Gaye et al were your musical foundation, here are three 21st-century talents whose music and lyrics will fill your senses with new memories. And if you do know their music, then you already know this is a night not to be missed!
