About the Artist
Brazilian musical artist, Jorge Ben, got his first big shine from the composition of track number 2 “Mas Que Nada” at age 23 (decade of the groovy sixties). At the time of his most influential work, musica popular brasileria was more about challenging Brazil’s political authorities and singing of reform. Jorge Ben, however, didn’t allow the frustration of political supremacy overshadow his musical talent. Using his bossa nova guitar skills, Ben created a style of music that dashed a touch of the African West Coast to a seductive Brazilian groove.

AM TAKES FLIGHT WITH AIR ON NORTH AMERICAN TOUR; WARMS UP IN PARK CITY, UTAH WITH SEVERAL SUNDANCE GIGS
LOS ANGELES— AM has been invited by French electro-pop kings Air to open their first North American tour in three years. Kicking off March 13 in Miami, the jaunt will serve as the perfect launching pad for AM’s new album, Future Sons & Daughters, produced by Charles Newman (The Magnetic Fields) and due for release on February 9 at record stores across the U.S. on Filter U.S. Recordings. The run will end with a concert at the illustrious Walt Disney Concert Hall in L.A. which sold out in the first 30 minutes tickets went on sale.
The imminent new year will start with a few shows at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, where AM will perform at the Sundance ASCAP Music Café, Friday, January 28 and Saturday, January 29. No stranger to the film world, AM’s music, which possesses an undeniable cinematic quality, has been featured in more than 80 movies and television shows, including two films that premiered at Sundance last year, including the biggest acquisition of 2009’s Fest, Ashton Kutcher’s “Spread.” Now, AM has added film scoring to his impressive resume, co-composing his first motion picture, “Man Maid” (Warner Bros.) alongside established composer Tom Hiel (The Practice, Swimming With Sharks).
As a Tulsa-born, New Orleans raised artist with a flare for distilling global musical influences into his own unique and infectious pop confections, AM’s genre-blurring music, while hard to classify, goes down as smooth as a Mai Tai on a tropical island. Or as Creative Loafing succinctly put it, “AM has an uncanny knack for crafting pop songs shaken and stirred with Philly R&B, Motown soul, ’60s rock and folk, and Brazilian rhythms that get in your head and swirl around for a spell.”
Expect to hear AM’s music in the fourth season, second episode of NBC’s hit television show “Friday Night Lights” starting in January 2010.
