Pittsburgh’s Heinz Hall to host Bryan Ferry

Pittsburgh's Heinz Hall for the Performing Arts will host English singer-songwriter Bryan Ferry on Saturday, April 1 at 8 p.m. with special guest Judith Owen.

Bryan Ferry, who gained a cult-like following as the frontman for the legendary art-rock group Roxy Music, released his latest solo LP, Avonmore, back in November 2014 through BMG Rights Management. The album, produced by longtime collaborator Rhett Davies, reached No. 19 on the UK Albums Chart and No. 72 on the Billboard 200 here in the states. It features guest appearances from the likes of Johnny Marr, Nile Rodgers, Marcus Miller and more.

Earlier this year, In Your Mind, Ferry’s fourth solo full-length album, celebrated its 40th anniversary. The album, released in February 1977 through E.G. Records, was his first solo release consisting entirely of original material.

2017 is also the 10th anniversary of the singer-songwriter’s twelfth LP, Dylanesque. The album, which consists of covers of Bob Dylan songs, was released in March 2007 via Virgin Records.

Opening for Ferry is Judith Owen, a Welsh singer-songwriter, and pianist who co-founded Twanky Records with her husband, comedic actor and musician Harry Shearer. Owen, who is based in New Orleans, Louisiana, released her latest full-length, Somebody’s Child, in June 2016 via Twanky Records. The follow-up to 2014's critically-acclaimed Ebb & Flow, Somebody’s Child is supported by the tracks "Somebody's Child", "Send Me a Line", "Mystery" and more.    

Owen released her debut album, Emotions on a Postcard, through Dog On The Bed Music in 1996.
