1 in 110 people on the planet is a refugee or displaced person. But I know at first-hand that @theirc is there – in 40 countries and 28 cities in the U.S., from Yemen to the U.S. Mexico border, helping refugees and displaced people whose lives have been shattered by conflict. I also know that the IRC never, ever gives up on refugees. That’s why this #GivingTuesday – and every day – I’m proud to support their critical work. Please join me supporting their work. Visit my link in bio to donate – and thank you.
My visit to Amanpour and co. & my plea to everyone to VOTE! Link in bio for the full video.
My blood, your blood and refugee blood are all the same. I'm proud to help raise awareness for Odyssey, @marcquinnart’s new project that that has launched and shows that under the skin we’re all the same -- while supporting @theirc. Visit bloodcube.org for more. #OurBlood
This is one of my favorite shows coming back to NYC. Get your tickets now before it sells out. I’d try describing it but just go go go! Visit link in my bio for info and tickets.
For Diary: April/May 2018, my new release with pianist/producer Thomas Bartlett, we recorded "From the Air," from Laurie Anderson's 1982 debut album, Big Science (which Pitchfork just named one of that decade's best albums!). Director Tom Kalin made a new video for us. You can watch the full video at mandypatinkindiary.com.
The second in my Diary series of releases with pianist/producer Thomas Bartlett, Diary: April/May 2018, is out now on @nonesuchrecords at mandypatinkindiary.com! We recorded two songs I wrote myself, plus songs by Randy Newman, Laurie Anderson, Bob Dylan, Patty Griffin, Harry Nilsson, Tom Waits, Lyle Lovett, Taylor Mac, Keren Ann, and Stephen Sondheim. Hope you enjoy, and thanks for listening!
