Renowned pianist and Harvard graduate Thomas Lauderdale formed Pink Martini in 1994 to play political events he organized in the Portland, Oregon area. Lauderdale enlisted the help of vocalist, musician and fellow Harvard graduate China Forbes to form the core of the group, which has expanded from four to 12 members since 1994, including singer Storm Large.
Since 1994, Pink Martini has gone on to perform all over world, playing music that Lauderdale has described as “a romantic Hollywood musical of the 1940s or 50s, but with a global perspective which is modern,” adding, "We bring melodies and rhythms from different parts of the world together to create something which is new and beautiful." In 2018, Pink Martini released Non Ouais! The French Music of Pink Martini as well as the 20th-anniversary reissue of their landmark 1997 album Sympathique.
Americana singer-songwriter Mary Chapin Carpenter began her career playing in the clubs of Washington D.C. before signing with Columbia Records in the late 1980s. Carpenter’s 1992 album, Come On Come On, went quadruple platinum and put up seven singles on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart. Carpenter’s latest studio album, Sometimes Just the Sky, arrived in 2018. Check out Carpenter performing three tracks from the new album in the video below.
