Patti Smith in Seoul
Hailed as both the ‘Female Legend of Rock’ and ‘Goddess of Punk’, the hugely talented Patti Smith will perform on Saturday, February 2nd at Seoul’s Uniqlo AX (formerly known as AX-Korea).
Born in Chicago in 1946, Smith began gaining attention in the 1970’s with her poetic, rock-infused compositions. She formed a band in 1975 with whom she had performed with in numerous clubs in New York. She soon signed with Arista Records and had her debut album, ‘Horses’, was soon listed as one of the ‘World’s 100 Albums’.
Her string of live performances left a unique footprint in the music world and inspired hundreds of other artists. TIME magazine listed her as one of the ‘World’s 100 Most Influential People’ in 2011.
In June of 2012, she announced the release of her 11th album, ‘Banga’, a reflection of her still remaining unique style sung in a storytelling manner. This album features Amy Winehouse in a classical ballad song, “This Is The Girl”, a Irish rock song, “Nine”, given to Patti as a birthday present from a close friend Johnny Depp, and twelve other songs that reflects Patti’s creativity in music.
