Meklit and Quinn
Hadero's last solo KHUM set generated a mountain of listener feedback, and she sold out the Arcata Playhouse last time she was in town.
They perform at the AP again 9/20/12.
Inspired by Sam Cooke and Neil Young, their new album covers Arcade Fire, MGMT, and Talking Heads.
Soul is in the eye of the beholder. That, in any case, is the truth behind Ethiopian-American songstress Meklit Hadero’s new partnering, which finds her teaming with another Bay Area favorite, Oakland soul sensation Quinn Deveaux.
With Hadero’s distinctive, jazzy phrasing joined to the honeyed sound of a singer steeped in gospel & early rock-n-roll, this magnetic duo are on tour in support of their new CD which is released Sept. 18.
