SANTA MONICA, Calif., Jan. 18, 2011 -- 429 Records is set to release a spectacular live concert by celebrated songstress Joan Armatrading.  JOAN ARMATRADING LIVE AT ROYAL ALBERT HALL was filmed and recorded live during the artist's triumphant appearance at the UK's most prestigious venue last spring.  The incredible evening was a highlight of Armatrading's world tour promoting the release of her new album "THIS CHARMING LIFE."  Described by the Boston Phoenix as "possibly her most electric album in her nearly 40-year career…Armatrading at her most enthusiastic and self-assured"—the new recording is the follow up to her much lauded foray into blues rock traditions, the Grammy-nominated 2007 "Into The Blues."  "Joan Armatrading Live at Royal Albert Hall" will be available on both on a 10-track CD and a deluxe CD/DVD combo package on 429 Records February 22nd.  

Long recognized as a pioneering force with a career spanning three decades, the Saint Kitts born Joan Armatrading has maintained an acclaimed and storied career.  The three times Grammy nominated British artist has garnered countless accolades which include Top 10 albums and singles ("Love and Affection," "Willow," "Drop The Pilot," are but a few), not to mention a #1 debut atop the Billboard Blues chart in 2007 (a first for a female artist from the UK).  She has made VH1's list of the 100 Most Influential Women in Rock, has been nominated for a Brit Award, gave a command performance for Nelson Mandela on his 70th birthday at Wembley Stadium, received an Honorary Degree from Birmingham University and the list goes on—truly a charmed life and career!
