Vancouver singer, songwriter, composer and pianist Veda Hille (pronounced Hilly) will be releasing her 13th album entitled This Riot Life, on May 20, 2008 (having just come back from Canada, I noticed that this CD is actually already on the shelves there). This Riot Life is being released in the USA and internationally on Ape House, the label owned by XTC’s Andy Partridge. Veda is about to head out on tour in support of her new record and in that regard, she is making a rare solo appearance in NYC at Joe’s Pub on April 27 before heading off to play a string of shows in Europe (well, Germany mostly). On a side note, on Monday, April 21 Veda played the songs of Neil Young with the CBC Radio Orchestra at the Chan Centre in Vancouver, BC. That show will be broadcast on CBC radio and online in about a month or so. I haven’t actually seen Veda since she opened up for Stephen Fearing at The Vancouver East Cultural Centre many, many years ago, so I’m looking forward to this show.
