GREENVILLE--Award winning musicians John Latini and Jamie-Sue Seal will play a concert of roots, blues and folk music at Montage Cafe as part of the Darke County Center for the Arts “Coffee House Series” on April 11, 7 p.m.
The duo presents a lively collection of songs and they fill in the gaps with superb vocals, masterful guitar playing and cabaret flair.
Latini is a solo two-time Detroit Blues Champion and a semi-finalist with Seal in the Windsor Blues Challenge. The Queens, New York native has also won top songwriting awards and nominations in three states. Seal, who is from Michigan, has recorded songs for television and radio advertisements and her songs have placed on regional charts as well as received commercial airplay nationwide.
Latini recently released a new CD called “Lovers, Liars & Losers” on Seal’s Michigan based indie label Smokin’ Sleddog Records that debuted on the Michigan Roots Charts at #6. He will be playing songs from this new album and Seal will be performing vintage cabaret style material from her upcoming CD due out in 2013.
The duo is lauded not only for their musical talent but for their witty interaction with each other and their audiences. One promoter described Latini and Seal’s onstage and offstage chemistry as “a hilarious blend of marital dysfunction and sibling rivalry”. Both have toured as part of “The Un-Valentine’s Show~Songs And Tales Of Unforgiveness, Heartbreak, Dysfunction And Revenge” since it’s inception in 2006.
