She was the third journalist to die from injuries sustained in the same explosion, following French reporter Stéphan Villeneuve and their Iraqi Kurdish fixer Bakhtiar Haddad. All three were on assignment in Mosul for the France 2 TV channel’s current affairs programme Envoyé Spécial. Samuel Forey, a French freelance journalist who was with them, was slightly injured by the same explosion. “There are too many headstones in the cemetery of international reporters killed in the field, including Patrick Bourrat in Kuwait, Jean Hélène in Côte d’Ivoire, Lucas Dolega in Tunisia, Gilles Jacquier, Rémi Ochlik and Olivier Voisin in Syria, Ghislaine Dupont and Claude Verlon in Mali, Camille Lepage in Central African Republic and Bakhtiyar Haddad, Stéphan Villeneuve and Véronique Robert in Iraq, to mention only the most recent,” RSF secretary-general Christophe Deloire said. “The community of international reporters hadn’t finished patching its wounds before its blood flowed again. Véronique Robert’s death deepens the sadness of all those who are committed to international reporting and who believe that it is honourable role of journalists to be the witnesses of human tragedies.” RSF shares the grief of Véronique Robert’s family and friends. to go further News Organisation June 3, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

PREMIERE: Rock Out With This Live Version Of “Peculiar” By Harts

first_imgWielding a psychedelic-painted Fender Squier and blessed with a falsetto that could shake Stonehenge, Australian singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer Harts electrifies pop with both musicianship and showmanship. His second full-length album and stateside debut, Smoke Fire Hope Desire, is due out July 21st on Washington Square/Razor & Tie. To celebrate the release, Harts will embark on a series of exclusive dates beginning at Milwaukee’s Summerfest on July 7th. The tour touches down in LA, NYC, Chicago, Washington D.C. and more.About the new album, Harts admits, “It’s a play on that old saying, ‘Where there’s smoke, there’s fire. I added a positive second line, ‘Where’s there’s hope, there’s desire.’ That phrase really sparked the whole context, which means hope and desire are a direct response to smoke and fire. There’s a lot of sadness and trouble in our world, but there’s still a lot of love being born.”The GQ Australia Artist of the Year (2016) relies heavily on his early influences of pop, funk, and good ol’ rock and roll. Even the late, great Prince personally invited Harts to Paisley Park Studios proclaiming, “He reminds me of how I was at that age.”Harts (born Darren Hart) is a one man show with no external producers or other collaborators. The upcoming album’s 14 tracks came to life in his bedroom studio with the virtuoso acting as an architect building, playing and recording every single note. The lead single, “Peculiar” flaunts a hummable guitar solo between orchestral horns, slinky bass and an urgent and chantable refrain. Live For Live Music is excited to share the live version of “Peculiar” below, live from Brisbane.Listen to the studio version below:Harts Summer Tour Dates:July 7th – Milwaukee, WI @ Milwaukee SummerfestJuly 17th – Los Angeles, CA @ Bardot HollywoodJuly 18th – Anaheim, CA @ The Parish at House of Blues AnaheimJuly 21st – Centre Hall, PA @ Karoondinha Music & Arts FestivalJuly 29th – Chicago, IL @ Wicker Park FestAugust 2nd – Washington D.C. @ DC9August 4th – Philadelphia, PA @ Kung Fu NecktieAugust 5th – Brooklyn, NY @ Knitting Factorylast_img read more
