Interpol

Rock, Pop, Alternative, Punk
Interpol. A name generally associated with international espionage, covert operations, and distant ports of call. Yet since Interpol, the band, swept up listeners with their 2002 Matador debut 'Turn On The Bright Lights,' the moniker has gained new associations as well. It still carries global recognition. For some years now, one could hardly open a magazine, turn on a radio or television, or step into a nightclub, without hearing Interpol's dark, gripping songs or seeing their countenances. Despite this high level of media exposure, the quartet never lost the tension and complexity that won them acclaim worldwide.

St. Paul & the Broken Bones

R&B/Soul, Blues
High-voltage soul-based rockers St. Paul & The Broken Bones render a blazing mating of ’60s soul fire with latter-day influences like Sly Stone, David Bowie and Prince. The Alabama-based band’s take-no-prisoners live shows caught the eye of the Rolling Stones, who tapped them as an opening band. “I love the Rolling Stones,” says frontman Paul Janeway, “but my train of thought is, you gotta try and blow ‘em off the stage. And that’s still my goal.” They stir up the crowd with guitars, horns, brass and a James Brown-worthy get-on-up style.

Jesse Cook

World, Latin/Salsa, Jazz
The acclaimed guitarist Jesse Cook has spent a lifetime traveling the globe and absorbing rhythms from the diverse cultures of Africa, Europe and the Americas. His exotic rumba flamenco is a fusion of these musical traditions. After decades of crisscrossing the world in restless pursuit of inspiration, innovation and collaboration, the Paris-born, Toronto-raised Cook changed course for his 2015 album, "One World." Instead of exotic locales, he stayed home in his studio. Instead of a foreign legion of performers, he relied on his own devices. And instead of exploring cul de sacs of music - flamenco, classical, rumba, world beat, pop, blues or jazz - he united them.
