Divus Julius presents: Stormzy

In only a few years, the Londoner Michael Omari has built a career marked by a number of historic milestones: The first Grime LP to debut at number one on the UK Charts, the first ‘freestyle to do the same’ (the inescapable anthem ‘Shut Up’), and especially the first solo black British artist to headline Glastonbury Festival. If he was already a wildly popular artist before the show, the performance has cemented his place as an international star of the highest calibre.

His well known fans and supporters range from Adele and Elton John, who have voiced their support since the beginning, all the way to JayZ. The ambitious 26-year-old M.C. has a new album, “Heavy Is the Head,” and is ready to spread his gospel.

Music by Bergman: The Lemon Twigs

Over the last couple years, The Lemon Twigs have appeared poised for an ascension. The project of young Long Island brothers Michael and Brian D’Addario, The Lemon Twigs’ idiosyncratic mixture of garage, psych-rock, and theatrical orchestral-pop leanings quickly garnered the duo plenty of accolades, including from older artists like Todd Rundgren and Elton John. The D’Addarios never seemed to want to rest on that initial success, but instead sought to capitalize on their momentum to get as much music out there as possible, as quickly as possible. Along with the announcement of a new album, the Lemon Twigs have shared a lead single in the form of Go To School’s closer “If You Give Enough.”

Favourite Gig: Elton John

Sir Elton John, one of the most acclaimed artists in the history of pop, is back in Barcelona with his band three years after his last visit to the city, as part of his ‘Wonderful Crazy Night’ tour, where he immortalizes his biggest hits o the last five decades as well as presenting the album that gives its title to the tour, which was released in 2016. Since his debut in 1969, John has sold millions of records. With hits like ‘Rocket Man’, ‘Tiny Dancer’, ‘Your Song’ and ‘Don’t Go Breaking My Heart’, he also holds the record for the second-best-selling single of all time with ‘Candle in the Wind’ (behind Bing Crosby’s ‘White Christmas’), and has put on more than 4,000 concerts in over 80 countries around the world.

The muses of La Musa: Lucy Rose

Lucy Rose, former backing vocalist with the UK band Bombay Bicycle Club, started out recording her solo material at home. The music videos she then posted on YouTube were an immediate success, introducing the world to a fine voice and lyrics full of sincere emotion. Rose’s debut album, ‘Like I Used To’, made her more widely known as one of the leading artists on the British indie folk scene. She is now busy touring her latest LP, ‘Work It Out’ (2015), which has garnered even more fame for this young artist. Her influences include such singer-songwriters as Neil Young and Joni Mitchell, she opened for Elton John in 2013, and now she can fill venues all over Europe on her own merits. Opening the show is another young singer-songwriter,

Lucía Scansetti. The artist from Madrid presents her own new album, ‘Dimensions of Dialogue’. Today at sala Barts.

Arenal Sound: Tom Odell

Se llama Tom Odell. Sólo tiene 24 años. Ya ha ganado un ‘Grammy’ inglés, un Brit en el 2013. Sólo ha grabado un álbum, maravilloso, con canciones impresionantes como “Another Love”, ‘Sense’ y ‘Till I Lost’. Elton John se impresionó de como compone y no es para menos. Tiene una mirada profunda, responde con inteligencia y con una madurez inhabitual a esa edad. La fusión de folk británico vintage, guitarras acústicas y los ritmos pop rock setenteros marcan el estilo musical deTom Odell. No te puedes perder uno de los conciertos más especiales que tendrán lugar en la playa de Burriana. Hoy a las 22.15h en el Desperados Stage.
