Lianne La Havas

David Letterman. Conan O'Brien. The Current. That's a killer itinerary of live performances for a single week. Fresh from her Late Show performance last week, English folk and soul singer-songwriter Lianne La Havas performs in The Current studio.

Dan Deacon performs in The Current studios


Dan Deacon

If you've ever seen a live Dan Deacon show, you know just how much creative power he has over his audience. As soon as the first note drops, the floor becomes mayhem, turning into a ritualistic affair. Deacon's music invokes a wide variety of emotions, but first and foremost his music elicits uninhibited joy. His process and love for audience participation translates from stage to record, and even with his recent performance for The Current, it's difficult for your body not to pulse with the rhythm.
