New Orleans Singer-Songwriter Dr. John Signs with Sam Feldman and Michael Gorfaine
Six-time Grammy Award-winner and legendary New Orleans singer-songwriter, Dr. John, has recently signed with Sam Feldman and Michael Gorfaine for exclusive management representation.
Sam Feldman is a partner in Macklam Feldman Management, a division of A&F Music Ltd. that represents artists such as Diana Krall, Elvis Costello, Bette Midler, The Chieftains and James Taylor*, among others.
Michael Gorfaine is a partner in The Gorfaine/Schwartz Agency and represents world-renowned composers, including John Williams, James Newton Howard and Randy Newman. *Feldman and Gorfaine also provide exclusive management representation for James Taylor.
Sam Feldman says, "Working with the iconic Mac Rebennack is an honor. It was true justice to watch him win a Grammy for Best Blues Album."
Michael Gorfaine adds, "Mac is truly one of the all-time great influences on music, as witnessed by his on-stage collaboration with The Black Keys and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band. It's a thrill and an honor to be part of his career."
Dr. John was recently awarded the Best Blues Grammy for his 2012 album Locked Down, produced by The Black Keys' Dan Auerbach. He also joined the Black Keys and The Preservation Hall Jazz Band onstage at the Grammys' 55th annual telecast. Dr. John's Nonesuch debut pays tribute to his past - particularly to seminal albums Gris-Gris and Babylon - while maintaining a solidly contemporary feel. Several of his many career highlights include 1971's masterful album The Sun, Moon and Herbs (which included cameos from Eric Clapton and Mick Jagger) and 1973's In The Right Place, comprising chart hits "Right Place Wrong Time" and "Such A Night." Dr. John's sixth and latest Grammy win augments his awards garnered in 1989, 1992, 1996, 2000, and 2008, while his musical love letter to the city of New Orleans, "N'awlinz Dis Dat or D'udda," was awarded the prestigious Académie Charles Cros 57ème Palmarès award in France in 2004 - an accolade not bestowed upon a North American Artist since the 1970s.
