NATIONALLY SYNDICATED, AWARD-WINNING LIVE FROM DARYL’S HOUSE HEADED TO HIGH DEFINITION MUSIC CHANNEL PALLADIA
Webby-award winning Live from Daryl’s House, which began on the Internet after a “light bulb” moment by creator Daryl Hall, and is now available in national syndication, has been added to the line-up of Palladia, Viacom Media Networks’ high-definition music channel. The first installment, featuring singer/songwriter Jason Mraz, will premiere Thursday, Sept. 6 at 11 p.m. ET/PT, directly following another new Palladia acquisition in BBC’s legendary Later with Jools Holland show at 10 p.m.
“Live from Daryl’s House started five years ago on the web and has always remained an internet show at heart,” said Daryl. “With the expansion to television, I feel that a pure music performance channel like Palladia is the perfect place for the LFDH brand.”
Jonathan Wolfson, Co-Executive Producer of Live From Daryl's House and manager of Daryl Hall says: "I've been a big part of this series, since its inception in 2007. And, to see it go from Daryl's initial vision, which continues to be seen on the web, into a weekly series on the Palladia Network, is further validation that we are doing something special."
For the past five years of Live from Daryl’s House, Daryl Hall has treated viewers to a unique, intimate glimpse at the creative process, with an array of different performers joining him for a specially prepared meal and a jam in his living room, built into his house in Millerton, NY. Daryl and his guests perform a set made up of their own hits as well as classics from the Daryl Hall and John Oates and Daryl solo songbooks, talking music, sharing stories and cooking with a special guest chef. Hall created the monthly series, which is available online at www.livefromdarylshouse.com, where it became an Internet sensation and a winner of an MTV O Music Award for “Best Performance Series.”
