Music icon Rita Coolidge has won two Grammy® Awards. Her song-styling crosses three genres, rock, pop and jazz, over more than a dozen albums, including 1978’s multiplatinum Anytime… Anywhere. An influential force amid the iconic music that built the pop/rock universe, several of her singles have become classics: We’re All Alone, Higher And Higher and The Way You Do The Things You Do as well as hit collaborations with Kris Kristofferson.
2016 is a year of new projects and milestones as Rita releases her memoir in April and a new album in the summer.
‘Smokey voice and soulful…’ (Jim Fusilli, Wall Street Journal)
‘To me Rita Coolidge is a sound, that marvellous, kind of smoky, husky but pure sound and yes she has the hits…’ (David Finkle, Village Voice)
Support comes from the soulful, husky voice of Jon Allen and his roots, blues and folk music. He has played several support gigs for Damien Rice, KT Tunstall and Jose Gonzalez among others.
