Tuesday Tune: “Cruel To Be Kind” by Nick Lowe

July 17, 2012

Today’s Tuesday Tune is “Cruel To Be Kind” by Nick Lowe, an artist we just announced will be performing in Charlotte on Tuesday, Oct. 9, in McGlohon Theater at Spirit SquareTickets go on sale to the public Friday, July 27, at 10 AM.

Nick Lowe has made his mark as a producer (Elvis Costello-Graham Parker-Pretenders-The Damned), songwriter of at least three songs you know by heart, short-lived career as a pop star, and a lengthy term as a musicians’ musician. But in his current ‘second act’ as a silver-haired, tender-hearted but sharp-tongued singer-songwriter, he has no equal. Starting with 1995’s The Impossible Bird through to 2011’s The Old Magic, Nick has turned out a fantastic string of albums, each one devised in his West London home, and recorded with a core of musicians who possess the same veteran savvy.

Lowe brings wit and understated excellence to every performance, leading Ben Ratliff of the New York Times to describe his live show as “elegant and nearly devastating.”
