The act we’re bringing to the Hard Rock Café this month is Melou, a musical project headed up by singer Annie Goodhild and guitarist Maarten Swaan. The two have performed together since meeting in a tequila bar in Guatemala in 2005; Swaan, who hails from The Netherlands, subsequently moved to Goodhild’s hometown of Boston, Massachusetts to continue their collaboration. As well as their joint venture, Swaan also has a thriving solo career, and the concert will see Melou and Swaan perform from their latest albums, Skylark and Voices, which have been combined into a double disc. Expect their songs to include influences as varied as Janis Joplin, Bob Marley and Radiohead. Read our interview with Maarten Swaan online here.
