"Daniel Merriweather, A Fine Frenzy, And Lisa Hannigan"
Australian soul singer-songwriter Daniel Merriweather has garnered much acclaim with his debut album, "Love & War," already an enormous hit in the UK, where he was nominated for the 2010 Brit Award for International Breakthrough Act.
A Fine Frenzy’s debut record, "One Cell in the Sea," cracked the Billboard Top 100, earned the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart and garnered recognition as a VH1 “You Oughta Know” artist.
Best known for her multiplatinum collaborations with fellow Irish singer-songwriter Damien Rice, Lisa Hannigan emerged as a performer in her own right with her debut album, "Sea Sew," which Entertainment Weekly dubbed “the perfect album for cozying up by the fire on a winter-chilled Sunday afternoon.”
This compilation episode features three standout emerging artists performing in three remarkable locations: R&B singer-songwriter Daniel Merriweather at the famed art auction house Sotheby’s in New York City, alternative pop songstress A Fine Frenzy at the John Drew Theater at Guild Hall in the Hamptons, and folk singer-songwriter Lisa Hannigan (best known for her work with Damien Rice) at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Montclair, New Jersey.
