Gary Jules

World Cafe Live

3025 Walnut Street Philadelphia PA 19104
  • Sunday June 10th 2012

After years struggling in the nascent Los Angeles underground singer-songwriter scene of the mid 90s, Gary Jules’ first record Greetings from the Side was recorded for A&M Records and released in August 1998. Weeks later A&M’s parent label Polygram was bought by MCA/Universal. Jules and Greetings were lost in the proverbial shuffle, but not before both received considerable critical acclaim. Zeke Piestrup of VH-1 called Jules “The best American singer-songwriter to emerge out of the late ’90s — and the only one worthy of being mentioned in the same sentence with Paul Simon, James Taylor, Cat Stevens and Nick Drake.”

In 2001 Jules’ original independent release of Trading Snakeoil for Wolftickets, which included a cover of Tears For Fears’ “Mad World” that Jules recorded with friend and producer Michael Andrews for the film Donnie Darko, arrived to even more critical acclaim. He will have a new release in 2012.
