PORTO FRANCO RECORDS ANNOUNCE THE DEBUT ALBUM OF MEKLIT HADERO AND QUINN DEVEAUX

MEKLIT & QUINN IS OUT SEPTEMBER 18, 2012

Singer-songwriter Meklit Hadero, a Senior TED Fellow and deeply involved pioneering force in San Francisco’s artistic scene, is a global tapestry of musical and cultural influences. Her music blends New York jazz and West Coast folk with traditional Ethiopian and much more. “She sings about fragility, hope, and self-empowerment, and exudes all three,” (SF Chronicle), offering her messages in a voice as sensuous and original as it is stunning. Equally at home across genres, Quinn DeVeaux is a commanding frontman who turns out remarkable original work filled with joy, grit and irresistible beats. A catchy crossroads of Chicago blues and New Orleans soul and gospel, he is packing in Bay Area dance floors and beyond.

Now, for the first time, these two artists of universal appeal and unbounded optimism join forces. Their chemistry and piquant blend of influences take the spotlight in this selection of originals and covers of their favorite pop songs. From Arcade Fire and MGMT to Lou Reed and Stevie Wonder, the San Francisco duo’s imagination and passion buoy well-loved songs to new heights. (READ MORE->>)
