“A 21st century version of the one man band, hes a bizarre amalgamation of Bobby McFerrin, Rahzel, Matthew Herbert and Prince with the unhinged, wild-eyed manner of say, Iggy Pop or Darby Crash” XLR8R
“Listen to Multiply once and youll be struck by how reverent it is; listen to it three times and youll start to notice the microscopic digital artifacts and subtle tweaks that give it personality and pop. PITCHFORK MEDIA
A boundary-breaking, British soul vocalist beyond your wildest expectations, Jamie Lidell has been shocking audiences for the past three years with his extraordinary live shows; which careen from glitzy Funkadelic extravaganza to hard electronic avant-garde showpieces. Reviewers have likened him to “a 21st century reincarnation of Little Richard” with “a soul voice fried in honey like Sly Stone or Prince, and a beatboxing talent to make Muhammad Ali quake in his Everlast”, delivering time and again “a thrilling, visceral performance”, “pure, visceral power: a scintillating display of demented musical and physical energy”, both “exhilarating” and “astounding”. Jamie Lidell is British music’s best kept secret, about to be unleashed.
All proceeds from this extravaganza will benefit the OPEN SPACE ALLIANCE, which is a nonprofit organization whose purpose is to promote public awareness and conservation of Open Space lands, and to educate the public about the natural, historic, cultural, educational, and recreational aspects of Open Space areas, including McCarren Park Pool. http://www.openspacealliance.org/
