Let The Singer Sing!
Randy Singer is no slouch. The guy has played, recorded, and/or toured with the likes of Julio Iglesias, Al Di Meola, Desmond Child, Caetano Veloso, and Stephen Marley to name a few. His virtuosity with the harmonica is world renowned in the recording industry, and he’s done shows around the world. Luckily he calls Miami home. And he’s also the director of music programming at the Van Dyke’s upstairs music lounge, which has one of the most ambitious schedules in the county. Tonight, he exhibits the versatility of his instrument, and his ability as a player, with a performance full of covers, originals, and standards. Expect both Sting and Charlie Parker.

Florida debut of Brazilian singer-songwriter TIÊ live in concert

Singer Tiê (pronounced Chee-ay), a Warner Music Brasil recording artist, is one of the most talked about new Brazilian singers, and is set to perform her Florida debut Upstairs at the Van Dyke on August 23rd. The evening also features Randy Singer’s Airplay, the band led by the renowned harmonica player and music director of the Van Dyke.
At the invitation of the Brazilian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Tiê will perform in the USA in August, with dates in Washington DC (Kennedy Center), New York and Miami Beach.

A São Paulo native, Tiê now 31, had a brief stint as a model for the Ford agency, having worked with director Fernando Meireles in award winning campaigns. She also owned a hip gift shop where she met legendary Brazilian singer Toquinho as well as members of the indie scene of São Paulo, including her producer Plinio Profeta.

After debuting with the minimalist “Sweet Jardim” (2009), one of the most talked about releases that year, Tiê again dove into her songwriting partnerships and developed versions of songs by friends such as Tulipa Ruiz and Thiago Pethit, with more full-bodied arrangements and new elements. She is now promoting her second release, “A Coruja e o Coração”(The Owl and the Heart), produced by Plinio Profeta and released in April by Warner Music Brasil and available in the US on iTunes. The album features hit songs like “Piscar o Olho”, “Você Não Vale Nada” (a surprising cover of a forró hit by Dorgival Dantas, now done flamenco style), and “Perto e Distante” featuring Oscar winner Jorge Drexler from Uruguay.

Tiê is also a confirmed attraction in the massive Rock in Rio festival, held in Rio de Janeiro in September of this year. She will be one of the stars of the Sunset Stage, dedicated to new talents of Brazilian music, and will share the show with Jorge Drexler.
