Maria Rylander is Planning a Becca Stevens Tour

Maria is a strong force for the jazz scene in Gothenburg, Sweden. She is the initiator of Gmlstnjazz.com and the coordinator for knutpunkt Nefertiti.

Now Maria is booking a tour with American jazz artist Becca Stevens in Sweden! We took the opportunity to speak to her about her plans.

For someone who has never experienced Becca Stevens live, what can we expect?

The tour is so far quite short with only two gigs. But what venues! Kosters Kyrka (The church on Koster island) in connection with their great closing celebration of their cultural trail that has been going on throughout October.

It is going to be totally magical with Becca Stevens in that environment.

The last gig is at Nefertiti in Gothenburg, the legendary jazz club in the middle of Gothenburg, Sweden.

Becca Stevens is an incredibly charismatic singer whose music borders on jazz, singer songwriter and pop. With collaborations with Snarky Puppy, Taylor Eigsti, Gretchen Parlato among others, she joins the contemporary jazz that is influenced by several popular genres. The music is beautiful, smart and sensitive. And then there’s something about Becca’s voice that strikes a tone in the listener. You can’t defend yourself, it goes straight in. 

You are now using the tool Samspel to plan the tour with Becca Stevens. What do you hope to get out of that?

I hope to extend Becca Stevens’ tour with at least one date to Friday, November 1st. Their gig in Norway was canceled so I am trying to help them fill their gaps. And this is not just for jazz and improvisation organisers – I hope someone joins me to expand the tour. [To do so, go to Samspel and click apply.]

Having a communication tool where one can easily find other organisers and quickly start a dialogue, well for me that is the dream!

As long as everyone is serious about their events and can offer a professional stage, it is great to find new collaboration partners.

What are your plans for Gothenburg in the near future?

I will continue to lead and develop Knutpunkt Nefertiti all the way to the end of the project, spring 2021. Continue reading Maria Rylander is Planning a Becca Stevens Tour

Samspel – ett nytt verktyg för turnéplanering

Turnéverktyget Samspel är ett nytt digitalt verktyg, byggt på eventplattformen Emues. Nu kan du med andra arrangörer runtom i Sverige skapa och bygga upp en turné, enkelt och kostnadsfritt!

Nu kan du smidigt lägga upp dina turnér, eller hänga på befintliga, planera, budgetera, chatta, skapa checklistor, och dela dokument.

Här förenklar du och dina partners all koordinering och kommunikation kring de gemensamma konserterna.

Tillsammans med MAIS (Musikarrangörer i Samverkan) genom initiativet och satsningen Samspel, har vi utvecklat ett nytt verktyg för turnéplanering.

Utvecklingsarbetet bedrivs i mindre etapper och med löpande workshops och input från användare.
