Known for his time as lead vocalist and guitarist with avant-garde rock group The Talking Heads, David Byrne has since pursued a solo career. This year, the Scottish-American is embarking on a tour to support his brand new March disc "American Utopia."
He'll play at the North Charleston Performing Arts Center on September 23, and it's your "Once in a Lifetime" chance to see him live. Eclectic ensemble Tune-Yards will be opening.
As part of the new album, Byrne released a video where his song "Everybody's Coming to My House" was performed by Detroit School of Arts Vocal Jazz Ensemble students. It changed his perspective on the track and serves as a reminder that music is interpretive and adaptable.
Byrne said, “When I saw what the DSA students did with my song, it completely changed the way I thought of it. In fact, it changed the meaning of the song—I realized it was about inclusion, welcoming, and not being alone. It’s a more generous interpretation of the song than what I do with my voice. We ARE all in the same house—if we want to be. Just goes to show how a song can change (radically!) depending on who is singing it.”
