Through her stage performances and television appearances, Deborah Voigt is known for the singular power and beauty of her voice. A leading dramatic soprano, she has portrayed some of the iconic heroines in German and Italian opera to great acclaim, including Brünnhilde in Wagner’s Ring Cycle, perhaps the most challenging role in all music. An active recitalist and performer of Broadway standards and popular songs, Voigt has an extensive discography and has given many enthusiastically received master classes. Increasingly active as a host of radio programs, she also appears regularly, as both performer and host, in the Metropolitan Opera’s The Met: Live in HD series, which is transmitted live to movie theaters across the United States and overseas.

Praised by the Associated Press for “a stage presence that radiates an endearing charm,” Voigt has been described by the New York Times as “the only diva who might carry on Beverly Sills’ role as ‘opera cheerleader’ in America.” In her candid and soul-bearing memoir, Call Me Debbie: True Confessions of a Down-to-Earth Diva (Harper; on sale January 27, 2015), Voigt for the first time shares her story—of music and faith, of devastating addictions and recovery, and of the backstage dramas behind the glamorous curtain that is opera.

Jamie Cullum is a charismatic crossover artist has been blurring the boundary between jazz and pop since the beginning of his career. His brother Ben, a major influence on him, introduced Cullum to jazz, a game with no rules which became a way of life. After two self-financed albums, he was spotted and signed by a big label. The Englishman spent his early twenties touring, playing, and recording across the globe, and he has collaborated with such artists as Pharrell Williams and Greg Wells.

Cullum is an insatiable performer, playing jazz standards as well as the latest hits, from Radiohead to Rihanna, from Jimi Hendrix to the White Stripes. His latest release, Interlude, marks a shift to straight-ahead jazz and a return to interpretation from an artist who has made a habit of bending genres, writing original material, and bringing new sounds and new listeners to his music. Working with producer Benedic Lamdin of Nostalgia 77, Cullum has selected a number of jewels from the American songbook—including Interlude's title track, which was penned by Dizzy Gillespie and Frank Paparelliand added a couple of modern surprises.
