Following their sensational performance at Shepherd’s Bush Empire earlier this month, Daryl Hall and Rumer team up again on a six-song set which includes Daryl Hall & John Oates hits “Sara Smile” and “I Can’t Go for That (No Can Do),” covers of Gil Scott-Heron and Philly soul legend William DeVaughn“Be Thankful for What You Got.”
Rumer says: “When I met Daryl, I was literally stunned. I never really understood what ‘being in the presence of greatness’ actually meant until I was standing in a room, playing music with Daryl and his amazing band.”
In addition to the six-song set will the Atlantic Records singer/songwriter perform two songs from her acclaimed debut, Seasons of My Soul in “Slow” and “Take Me As I Am.
“His musical presence is so incredible, that l kept thinking, ‘How did I get in here?” Rumer says. “Daryl Hall is a genius, a living legend who continues to write and record amazing music. He told me at dinner that his aim in life was to ‘blow people away.’ Now I know what that feels like.”
Daryl was suitably impressed with the singer/songwriter. “Since having her on the show, I have spent some time with Rumer, and we have quickly become friends. She is an interesting and impressive combination of spirituality and down-to-earth ‘centeredness’
that gives her a unique perspective on what we all do as musicians and communicators. I think her seemingly ‘smooth’ style frames a very passionate view toward life. More power to her.”
