What an exciting week it was for Dom La Nena on her first U.S. promotional tour!
First up was LA for Dom’s U.S. live radio debut on KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic with Jason Bentley. Dom stripped her tunes down for an interview and set that included a cover of the National’s “Start a War”. The show is available to listen to over here. While in LA Dom also popped by a music store to pick up a new distortion pedal. Check out this video for a taste of the good vibes that ensued!
Next on the cross-country journey was a quick stop in San Francisco, where Dom was greeted in the Six Degrees office with Tartine pastries before playing a couple of songs for Rhapsody’s South Park Sessions.
A busy couple of days in NYC were next in store. First on the agenda was meeting with Six Degrees publishing partners at Primary Wave Music before shooting a song for Huffington Post’s A-Sides Sessions. And to top off the trip Dom recorded a session with Kurt Andersen for WNYC’s Studio 360.
Dom will be back in the U.S. for a tour in June!
Another video that gets our bones shivering is this one from Jeremiah! Catch Dom La Nena and Piers Faccini deliver a soul-warming rendition of Dessa Vez!
Check out Niyaz’ new song and video from their upcoming SUMUD the acoustic EP (released worldwide 3/19)! Based on a traditional devotional Persian poem, “Naseem” features a duet from Azam Ali and the flute-playing of Habib Meftah Boushehri.
VIBE also debuted Starfire’s brand new Zeppelin remix! Stairway (David Starfire remix) is available for free download by heading over here!
