Singer/songwriter Marcus Goldhaber returns to the stage alongside The Jon Davis Trio, featuring: Jon Davis (piano), Martin Wind (bass), and Marcello Pellitteri (drums). These back-to-back performances at the coveted Metropolitan Room will take place on Wednesday, September 24th, and Thursday, September 25th, 2008 (at 9:30PM each night), offering a taste of the exciting and more-established new look and feel Marcus has cultivated for his new album, Take Me Anywhere.
As a pre-release event, 50 copies of the newly arrived album will be made available exclusively to concert-goers, before the album is officially released in stores and online in November, 2008.
As an added bonus this Fall, Marcus will be launching his new website , and introducing his new YouTube Channel which will feature streaming video clips from various live performances as well as up-close and personal interviews with the artist himself.
Take Me Anywhere is the 2nd album to be released on Marcus' own label, Fallen Apple Records, and will serve as a great successor to his wildly popular debut CD, The Moment After. Here, Marcus will be introduced as a songwriter with 7 original songs to accompany 10 exciting and fresh arrangements of tasty standards such as No Moon At All," I Fall In Love Too Easily," A Lovely Way To Spend An Evening," and Look For The Silver Lining."
When asked about his newly discovered talent for original material, Marcus replied, After the first record, people began asking for original material, and though I had many melodies & lyrics in my mind, I lacked the confidence to actually write a song. Then one sleepless night, around 2am, I went over to the piano, placed my fingers on the keys and just started singing along. About an hour later, Take Me" was written."
Stay tuned for soon-to-be-announced details on other upcoming events including in-store CD signings, a concert series in the Boston area, and the Official Album Launch Party in November.
The Metropolitan Room is located at 34 West 22nd Street between 5th & 6th Avenues. For advanced tickets for the show, contact 212.206.0440.
