Gil Scott-Heron
Gil Scott-Heron will release his first album in 15 years on February 9, titled I'm New Here. As if he never left, Gil continues to throw down the gauntlet; challenging us to get involved, be informed, retain a sense of humor and do the right thing. Throughout his career Gil has presented complex issues in a direct yet poetic manner through music of sincerity and integrity.

Born in Chicago on April 1, 1949, Gil Scott-Heron is one of the most influential and important American singer/songwriters of the late 20th century. In a career spanning five decades he has released over 15 albums and played shows in over 40 countries.

Scott-Heron currently has one confirmed show; April 18 at the Coachella Music and Arts Festival.
