Branden & James Music
Branden & James - At the Corner of Symphony and Soul
BRANDEN & JAMES, with special guest Ann Hampton Callaway, return to Santa Fe for an unforgettable evening at The Lensic. Reminiscent of “The Piano Guys meets Josh Groban,” the duo weaves familiar melodies of pop tunes in classical style, with their unique sound. The soulful timbre of James’ “dazzling cello” combined with “Branden’s soaring tenor voice and palpably personalized interpretation of the lyrics” (Robert Windeler, NPR Music), creates a sound that leaves audiences feeling moved and inspired.
Jazz legend singer/songwriter Ann Hampton Callaway, a mistress of the American Songbook, will join them for the evening. The Tony-nominated actress brings her vocal warmth, spontaneous wit and passionate delivery of standards, jazz classics and originals. Callaway, who wrote and sang the theme song for “The Nanny,” is a platinum award-winning songwriter, having penned hits for Barbara Streisand and collaborated with Cole Porter and Carole King.
Along with Musical Director Michael Orland (“American Idol”), the show will feature performances of Branden & James from the classical-crossover genre, as well as fan-favorites. They will present several collaborations with Callaway, which audiences will delight in as they meet “At the Corner of Symphony and Soul.”
