  • Never content to simply repeat history, guitarist Andy Summers has always strived to push the envelope and shatter expectations, breaking sonic ground and exploring interesting styles and tones with each new album. Each new disc he puts out is unique, with several miles away from his years of commercial success with his former band, The Police. And that’s a good thing. His latest release is no exception. Mr. Summers discussed what it’s like to be a one-man band, if he has an aversion to vocals and what the heck the title of his latest CD, “Triboluminescence,” actually means.

  • Multi GRAMMY® Award-winning artist ANDY SUMMERS rose to fame in the late 1970s and early 1980s as the guitarist of the legendary award-winning, multi-million-selling rock band The Police, recognized as the most successful and critically acclaimed group of the era. SUMMERS’ innovative guitar sound was a key element of the band’s popularity, creating a new paradigm for guitarists that has been widely imitated in the decades since. Not one to ever rest on his laurels, SUMMERS launched a prolific solo career that continues to this day, positioning him on the cutting edge of musical innovation – all the while following his passion for music as he keeps diligently busy writing, touring and recording in the studio. As a guitarist, songwriter and composer, his 14th solo album, TRIBOLUMINESCENCE (set for release by Flickering Shadow Productions on March 24, available on all digital platforms in the U.S. and via Amazon and Cargo Records in the U.K.), proves to be his most introspective work to date and is a collection of nine new tracks reflecting the style that Summers has evocatively dubbed “New Exotic.”

  • On November 12, Sting will perform an exclusive concert in Paris for the re-opening of the Bataclan. The artist will be joined by a 3-piece band including Dominic Miller (guitar), Vinnie Colauita (drums) and Rufus Miller (guitar) performing songs from his new album 57th & 9th. Sting says, "In re-opening the Bataclan, we have two important tasks to reconcile. First, to remember and honour those who lost their lives in the attack a year ago, and second to celebrate the life and the music that this historic theatre represents. In doing so we hope to respect the memory as well as the life affirming spirit of those who fell. We shall not forget them." All revenue from the show will be donated to Life For Paris and 13 Novembre: Fraternité Verité.

  • "I LOVE TODAY", is the title of Henry Padovani's new album which was released on September 2. Henry: "About time as well. I agree. But, we had to add 2 more songs to it. I love today, title of the album and Le Temps, both new songs. We recorded those 2 at 811 studios, in Horsham. Analog, of course. Mark St John played drums, and engineered (!!), Dick Taylor played bass, Samuel Brothers electric guitar and I played acoustic and sung. We have 13 tracks, and apart from those 2, we recorded at the Smoke House studios in London." For more information or to buy please visit http://www.henrypadovani.com/

  • It's a perfect Saturday morning, but Sting, unshaven and scruffy, is lying on a couch in a darkened New York studio, taking a nap before starting work for the day. He's still recovering from playing New York's Jones Beach Theater last night, the third date of his co-headlining summer tour with Peter Gabriel. "That was a workout," he says. "I've been up since 5:30. I'm the son of a milkman." Sting is working overtime to finish 57th & 9th (named after the intersection he crosses to get to the studio every day), which has him returning to the guitar-driven rock music he hasn't made in decades. "It's not a lute album," he says with a smile, a reference to 2006's Songs From the Labyrinth. "It's rockier than anything I've done in a while. This record is a sort of omnibus of everything that I do, but the flagship seems to be this energetic thing. I'm very happy to put up the mast and see how it goes."
