Helen Jane Long’s U.S. Tour Behind 4th Release “Identity” Helen Jane Long is an award-winning film composer whose musicology brings indie culture to classical and soundtrack music. This one-time Warner Bros. composer left it all behind to create her own record label, publishing company and destiny. Her signature sound is cinematic classical and she’s kicking and dragging it into the future with her stunning fourth release, “Identity”. In 2006, Helen was discovered and signed a contract with Warner Classics who released her first album, Porcelain, the following year. It went on to critical acclaim in England and the U.S. Not one to thrive in a corporate environment, Helen walked away from her contract with Warner in order to pursue her own musical visions and released her second album, Embers, independently on her own BLE Records. The album rapidly climbed the charts to become the most requested album on London’s national Classic FM radio, and in 2011, earned Helen the honor of being the only female composer in the Classic FM Hall of Fame. By the time she released her third album, Intervention, in 2012, Helen had composed music for ten feature and short films, seven commercials, and eleven documentary films including scores for films by iconic American director Louis Schwartzberg and Batkid, a documentary by The Make A Wish Foundation. Her latest album, Identity, marks yet another shift in her composing career as it found its place on the Billboard Chart at #9 on the first week of release. Composed over the course of a year, Identity  marks a move toward a bigger sound as she embraces the full richness of soundtrack composition folded into her uniquely intimate melodies. Helen will be joined by her string section, The London Players, for her U.S. tour dates.

Ludovico Einaudi’s U.S. Tour Behind “Elements” Album   Italian composer/pianist Ludovico Einaudi has evolved into one of the most successful musicians in the world. Upon its debut, his latest album, “Elements” topped classical charts in 42 countries across the globe.  In the United Kingdom it soared into the nation’s mainstream album chart at #12, the first time in over a generation that a classical artist achieved such heights. The Guardian points out that if you haven’t heard his music, “then it’s probably because you don’t know it’s by Ludovico Einaudi”.  His compositions have formed the soundtrack of film and TV productions including The Intouchables and the Black Swan working with a diverse range of directors from acclaimed Canadian Xavier Dolan to Oscar winner Clint Eastwood.  Brands such as NIKE and American Airlines have seamlessly sync’d his works in their advertising campaigns. Einaudi’s unique contemporary musical style, informed by minimalist, ambient, world and rock musics, has defied...
