    Bryan Ferry
    Bryan Ferry
    Bryan Ferry, CBE (born 26 September 1945, Washington, County Durham, England) is an English singer and songwriter.

    Ferry came to prominence as the lead vocalist and principal songwriter with the glam art rock band Roxy Music, achieving three number one albums and ten singles which reached the top ten in the UK between 1972 and 1982. Ferry began his solo career in 1973. In 1982, he disbanded Roxy Music to concentrate on his solo career. Roxy Music reunited for a concert tour in 2001, and toured together intermittently between that time and their break-up in 2011.

    "My next record was conceived from two years of writing. In that time I was writing my way through a breakup, and as I felt myself recovering from it, the work took on a different tone. I met Grammy winning producer, Tore Johansson, through an introduction by friend and fellow songwriter, Nicole Atkins, and we began working together on distance. Tore is based in Sweden and I am based in New York. I began by sending him rough demos and he would come back to me with arrangements, tempo changes, and sometimes wildly different interpretations of my original work. It was exciting to begin this process with someone who thought outside the box, but who also listened to me when I felt he had stretched the song too far. Over the passed year, alongside tore's musical parter, Martin Gjerstad, we delved through about 100 songs whittling down the list to 12. The album is called "Next Time" and it feels like the culmination of the other records I've done thus far. Thematically I deal with similar stories about love and loss but I feel more emboldened now. I don't think I would have been able to make this album if I hadn't learned and gotten to know myself on the others. Thats why the title feels so fitting to me." Sophie Auster

    Sophie Auster is an award winning singer and songwriter, born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. She has toured all over the world and has been featured in Vogue, Elle, Les InRocks, Spin, Glamour, Paris Match, Rolling Stone, Velvet, Paper, Nylon, Porter, and was spotlighted as one of W Magazine's rising young stars. Auster's last album has been praised by The New York Times for its "sultry, folksy vocals" and W Magazine calls it "soaring." John Osburn of the acclaimed music blog, Obsburt raves: "Each song was a realization, and a high point. Her voice is relentlessly surprising, shimmering with folk, blues, concert rock, and cabaret." Auster has made two LP's, her self titled debut released under Naive records, Dogs and Men, and one EP, Red Weather. Her forthcoming album, Next Time, is out now.
