The Webby Award winning musical performance show co-hosted by Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Daryl Hall, “Live From Daryl’s House” is returning to the web after a five year hiatus. The new episodes will be seen on a dedicated YouTube channel starting this Wednesday, November 1st with an episode featuring Squeeze singer/songwriter Glenn Tilbrook.
New episodes will then drop weekly, with Atlanta psychedelic jam band Blackberry Smoke singer/guitarist Charlie Starr (Nov. 8); King Crimson guitarist and Daryl Hall solo album producer Robert Fripp (Nov. 15); singer/songwriters Andy Grammer (Nov. 22), Lisa Loeb (Nov. 29) and U.K. synthpop pioneer Howard Jones (Dec. 6).
“Live from Daryl’s House” debuted November 15, 2007, and has a library of 90 extraordinary episodes, including the six listed above.
“It was an idea I had to use the Internet for entertainment, which hadn’t really been done before,” Hall explains of the show – which he launched with his own money – in this season’s premiere installment. “Hard to believe but there wasn’t anything like it. So much has changed since then. I was kind of a pioneer.”
“I’m unbelievably excited about the new season,” he continued. “I love all the guests we’ve booked and I think we’ve gone to places, musically, that we’ve never gone to before.”
After a deal with BMG to co-fund production, “Live from Daryl’s House” shot its final episodes in 2018, with the last two airing in October 2020, featuring Styx‘s Tommy Shaw and Vintage Trouble vocalist Ty Taylor.
It earned a Webby Award in 2010 for Best Variety Show among 10,000 entries, then earned an O Music Award from MTV.
