Songs In The Key Of Soul
SONGS IN THE KEY OF SOUL
This show will be an unforgettable celebration of the music that has shaped the sound of today delivered by two of Australia's most dynamic singers, Dino Jag and Gail Page, and backed by a powerhouse group of stellar musicians.
How do you truly describe Soul Music? It's more than just a sound... It's a feeling that touches your inner flame and sets your spirit free! It's a feeling that emerged from the pits of slavery with Gospel Music and evolved into Soul Music through artists such as Ray Charles, James Brown, Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder, Etta James and so many more. These classic artists will be honored with some of their greatest songs as will be the ones that followed such as Prince, Amy Winehouse and Michael Jackson. But that flame is still burning bright today with many current artists continuing to move and inspire such as Adele and Ed Sheerin, and 'Songs in the Key of Soul' will shine a light on them too.
DINO JAG - International award-winning singer songwriter Dino Jag unleashed his 'Breakthrough' EP to critical acclaim in November 2016. Recorded at the legendary Sunset Sound Studios in Hollywood with Grammy Award Winning Producer Jeff Bova at the helm it featured some of the best in business, Aaron Sterling (Drums - John Mayer), Corey Britz (Bass - Bush), Tim Pierce (Guitar - Bruce Springsteen), Jeff Bova (Keyboards - Michael Jackson), Carroll Hatchet (Backing Vocals - Bette Midler) & Bernard Fowler (Backing Vocals - The Rolling Stones), which has become a major milestone in Dino's career.
"Dino Jag is about to take over your ears." - Paste Magazine
"His voice possesses a special touch, an invisible aura that pulls you into the world created by his lyrics and decorated by the music and his voice. I can only say: watch out world!" - Wolf In A Suit
"Dino Jag has clearly cracked the code for pop songwriting, and he winningly replicates this formula six times over the course of the simply enjoyable Breakthrough EP." - The Big Takeover
GAIL PAGE - Winner of 3 international Chain awards, Gail has one of the most powerful voices you'll ever hear, as became quite evident when she became a national TV success under the wing of Ricky Martin during the 2015 season of Channel 9's The Voice. Be prepared to be moved. Gail doesn't just sing, she tells a story. And the stories are from the heart. They convey the emotions of a life's journey, messages of hope and strength and the uncanny ability to touch something inside every person that hears them. Expect at least a goose bump or two. It isn't just the clarity and power of her voice, nor simply the genuine emotion behind the songs, she's one of a kind, unique, powerful and touching.
"Close your eyes and you'd swear you're in New Orleans listening to one of the greats - Nina Simone, Aretha Franklin- then again, modern comparisons bring Toni Childs to mind - but wait, now she's singing the most beautiful rendition of an Eva Cassidy song. Gail is a musical chameleon unlike any other." - Central Coast Express
There's a definite Nina Simone kind of lilt, though Page's range is broader and her delivery more supple - soft and velvety one minute, dark and powerful when it needs to be and deeply imbued with the wear and tear of having lived: a real woman's voice." - Mark Mitchell, Drum Media
'Songs In The Key Of Soul' promises to be a highly memorable evening as Dino Jag & Gail Page come together for the very first time with a powerhouse band to celebrate the music that has moved and inspired them and so many of the great artists of today.
