U.K. soul singer Rumer will be the next Daryl Hall guest on Live From Daryl’s House.
Rumer will perform with Daryl on the 57th show and Daryl is now a big fan. “Since having her on the show, I have spent some time with Rumer, and we have quickly become friends,” he said. “She is an interesting and impressive combination of spirituality and down-to-earth ‘centeredness’ that gives her a unique perspective on what we all do as musicians and communicators. I think her seemingly ‘smooth’ style frames a very passionate view toward life. More power to her.”
One of the songs they will sing together is Gil Scott-Heron’s ‘Be Thankful For What You’ve Got’. Rumer will also sing Hall & Oates ‘I Can’t Go For That (No Can Do)’ with Daryl and ‘Sara Smile’, the Hall & Oates song she covered on her ‘Boys Don’t Cry’ album.
“When I met Daryl, I was literally stunned,” she said. “I never really understood what ‘being in the presence of greatness’ actually meant until I was standing in a room, playing music with Daryl and his amazing band”.
“His musical presence is so incredible, that l kept thinking, ‘How did I get in here?’ Daryl Hall is a genius, a living legend who continues to write and record amazing music. He told me at dinner that his aim in life was to ‘blow people away.’ Now I know what that feels like.”
Live From Daryl’s House, featuring Rumer, will go live on August 15.
