Few popular artists inject as distinct a mix of unabashed honesty and creative boldness into their music as Erykah Badu and St. Vincent, so the mere fact that these two are doing a show together already had music fans excited. Add in the fact that it’s at The Hollywood Bowl, one of LA’s most iconic venues, and we’re downright salivating.

He promotes a mood of love and universal acceptance at all of his shows, and he’s even combined music and yoga for an extra-sensational good vibe experience.

Kasey Chambers

Kasey Chambers started her career deep in the country world, and this influence has crossed over with her into the pop realm, infusing her work with an almost folksy, down-home rustic charm. The Australian singer-songwriter is back with a new solo release — her first in four years — but this time around she is changing her approach just a little bit.

Vintage Trouble

Nearly two years after being introduced to Vintage Trouble via a late-night TV appearance, the group’s Late Show performance still blows me away. I get dizzy watching frontman Ty Taylor spin across the stage and that falsetto of his at 2:30… The group has been described as “James Brown singing for Led Zeppelin,” and that description pretty much nails it.

Grace Potter

Grace Potter is often compared to soulful rock powerhouse Janis Joplin for good reason — she packs strength and conviction into every note she sings on every song recorded both solo and with her band The Nocturnals. Five records deep, the anticipation for Potter’s sixth album (and second one solo) is palpable. Her newest single, “Empty Heart,” off that forthcoming album, Midnight (out August 14th), combines upbeat notes with the downbeat lyrics. This dichotomy is part of what’s made Grace Potter’s music so timeless.

Blur

In my mind’s eye, the kings of Britpop will always be Blur. Oh sure, “Wonderwall” may be the anthem ’90s kids demand to sing in the midst of a soju-fueled karaoke bender, but if you’re looking for a band whose catalog has actually aged well because they actually wrote legitimately great lyrics and music, it’s team Blur all the way.
