RAPHAEL SAADIQ

Sat • Feb 01 • 8:00 PM

Tabernacle presented by Cricket Wireless, Atlanta

$29.50-175.00

 

Raphael Saadiq is a Grammy Award winning musician, songwriter and go-
to collaborator/producer for some of the biggest names in R&B. Solange Knowles, John Legend, Mary J. Blige, D’Angelo, Ne-Yo and Miguel are among the many artists who turn to Saadiq for his deep musicality, contemporary creative vision and encyclopedic knowledge of timeless pop music.
Born in Oakland CA, Raphael grew up singing gospel music in the church and started playing bass guitar at the age of six. On the strength of the musical and stage training he received at Castlemont High School, Saadiq auditioned for Sheila E and landed a spot in her band which supported Prince on his 1986 Parade world tour.
After honing his chops on the road, Saadiq returned to Oakland and formed the group Tony! Toni! Toné! with his brother D’Wayne Wiggins and cousin Timothy Riley. The trio went on to enjoy considerable success on radio and MTV in the late ‘80s and early ‘90s, racking up several hits including “If I Had No Loot,” “Feels Good,” “Anniversary” and the iconic “It Never Rains (In Southern California).”
Following four albums with Tony! Toni! Toné!, Saadiq formed the urban supergroup Lucy Pearl in 1999 along with Ali Shaheed Muhammad from A Tribe Called Quest and Dawn Robinson from En Vogue, yielding Dance Tonight. His solo career kicked off with 2002’sInstant Vintageand 2004’s Ray Ray. Critics began taking special notice with the release of his 2008
homage to Motown and Philly soul,The Way I See It,and it’s follow-up, Stone Rollin’(2011), which landed on many year-end Top Ten best albums lists.
Consequence of Soundspoke for many critics in their review, writing, “Saadiq [is] a true soul master” who “revitalizesthe...genre by taking nearly every step he can to create an almost flawless record.” Saadiq’s on
-stage performances garner equal praise. NPR called his SXSW appearance in support of Stone Rollin’ “a full-blown soul revue....When a guy this cool exerts this much effort, it’s a joy to behold.”
While his solo career thrived, Saadiq honed his craft as a producer, working with a wide range of artists, including Snoop Dogg, Little Dragon, Erykah Badu and Stevie Wonder. He remains a true musician’s musician, with Justin Timberlake, Elton John, Mick Jagger and Lady Gaga among the
many superstars who tapped him to play bass or guitar on high-profile projects, including Gaga’s memorable David Bowie tribute at the 2016 Grammy Awards. He co-wrote career-defining hits for D’Angelo (“Untitled (How Does It Feel)”) and Solange (“Cranes in the Sky”), and his compositions have been covered, sampled or referenced by everyone from Ed Sheeran to Drake.
In 2012, Saadiq was named toTime magazine’s 100 Most Influential People
list and in 2017, he received an Academy Award nomination in the category of Best Original Song for “Mighty River” from the filmMudbound, which he co-wrote with Mary J. Blige. On television, Saadiq is the composer in residence for Isa Rae’s hit HBO showInsecure. His highly anticipated next solo album, Jimmy Lee, is scheduled for release in August 2019.

TOVE LO.jpg
Tove Lo - Sunshine Kitty Tour

 

Wed • Feb 05 • 8:00 PM

Tabernacle presented by Cricket Wireless, Atlanta

$32.00-117.50

 

Tove Lo vividly recalls her first heartbreak. His name was Erik, and he was breathtaking. “I fell in love with him right away,” she says. But as we’ve come to learn from her songs such as “Habits (Stay High),” romance is complicated. Erik liked her friend instead; Tove was gutted. “I cried after that forever,” she says, laughing. Did she mention she was just eight years old?


To this day, the highs and lows of love’s labor’s lost continue to be the Stockholm native’s area of expertise. Her second album, Lady Wood (out October 28 on Island Records), deeply navigates the tributaries of sex and love, while its cheeky title debunks her unofficial moniker as The Saddest Girl in Sweden. “When people meet me, they’re like, ‘Oh, you’re actually happy.’ I’m not going to show up drunk and cry my heart out to you,” she says. Then adds, joking, “Well, not every time.”


It is true, however, that Tove enjoys exploring the darker side of life. Lady Wood’s first single, “Cool Girl,” is inspired by the twisted thriller Gone Girl and contemplates the hollowness and ironies of affecting an easygoing, feminine persona to ensnare a man. “When you create, you try to get out of your safe zone,” says Tove, who writes her own music and lyrics. “It’s okay to be pissed off or depressed. You’ll pick yourself back up. We shouldn’t be so scared of our emotions.”


Tove travels with a small studio set-up—keyboard, mic, laptop—to lay down ideas whenever the mood hits. While on tour with Katy Perry in late 2014, that process was cut short after doctors discovered cysts on her vocal cords. “It was intense, because I had to do voice rehab after surgery. It made me realize, ‘Fuck! This is the one thing that actually keeps me level-headed,’” she says. “I was about to go crazy after two months of not singing. I started writing the second it was okay to sing again.”


Time magazine once marveled at Tove’s “razor-like precision” as a songwriter. In reality, she has been deftly penning tracks for more than a decade. She started at age 11 with a homegrown girl- group (writing their only song, “Crazy”), graduated to the indie-rock band Tremblebee in her teens (“we played all the shittiest bars in Stockholm”), then took on a career-changing role in Max Martin’s songwriting collective Wolf Cousins. “He’s a great mentor,” she says. “Always telling me, ‘Produce more! Keep doing what you’re doing! Don’t let that part go.’”


And there is demand for her supply. “The reaction has been really amazing. I feel the support of a lot of female artists and writers,” she says. “In the beginning, I was like, ‘Ah, no one will notice.’ But now I can tell that I have an impact. My fans feel like they can relate to me. It’s a crazy feeling that you can mean so much to someone you’ve never met. Most of the time, they tell me their breakup stories, and I share another one of mine.”
