British vocalist Rumer (1979, real name: Sarah Joyce) was supposed to perform at the festival last year, accompanied by the Metropole Orkest. Due to throat problems, she had to cancel at the last minute. She made her break-through in 2010 with her debut album Seasons Of My Soul which earned her wide acclaim and she impressed the world with a sound that reminded many of times past. In the eighteen months since the release of her debut album, which sold over a million copies, Rumer has also made its successor: Boys Don't Cry. This latest album contains a collection of lesser-known songs from the '70s, although the original versions were sung by male vocalists. "The songs don't always sound like the original; they're emotional impressions of them", explains the singer. And they sound wonderful, we might add. It's for good reason Rumer has already found admirers among legends like Burt Bacharach, Elton John and Richard Carpenter.
