Lincoln Center Showcase, Joe's Pub Concert Set For This Month, as Isabel Rose Continues to Earn Raves

Critical praise continues to grow for singer Isabel Rose and her “one hell of an impressive debut," 'Swingin' From the Hip.' Tastemaker press outlet Blogcritics recently weighed in, with veteran writer Jack Goodstein noting, “Her voice is clean and crisp, and she revels in the kind of originality of phrasing that has marked the classic jazz vocalists from Ella and Frank to Tony Bennett and Sarah Vaughn." Listen to samples of the jazz/pop/swing/Cabaret hybrid, here: http://isabelrose.com/listen.html

Rose has confirmed two New York appearances to celebrate the release of the album (which was available digitally on September 14th and via Brick-and-Mortar on October 19th): On October 9th, she will perform a Lincoln Center showcase at The 21st Annual New York Cabaret Convention, and on October 21st, she will present a CD release party/concert at Joe's Pub.

Isabel Rose has moxie—the kind that made multi-hyphenates such as Ann-Margret, Peggy Lee and Bette Midler so appealing in years past. Rose's never-say-never attitude has carried her through many an odd challenge over the course of her fascinating career. Whether writing and starring in a major motion picture released by Samuel Goldwyn, getting a mega-deal from Doubleday for her debut novel, or composing and starring in an Off-Broadway musical adaptation of that novel, she's always found a way to make big things happen. Already praised by critics as a writer and actress, she achieves the hat trick with Swingin' from the Hip, her debut CD.

A natural performer, Rose has been praised as “vibrant" by Time Out New York and “Impressive" by The New York Times. A recent show at Joe's Pub (5/10) sold out three weeks in advance.

Produced by Julian Fleisher, himself a popular figure in the New York nightclub scene, with arrangements by Jeff Klitz, Swingin' from the Hip is a cohesive and kicky collection that will take you by surprise and keep you smiling.

Track listing: Aquarius; Lovely Day; I Enjoy Being A Girl; Temptation; Hit Me With Your Best Shot; Haven't We Met; Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me; I Only Wanna Be With You; Boy Wanted; On The Street Where You Live; Thirteen Men; Ac-cent-tchu- ate the Positive; The Best Is Yet To Come.

A U.S. tour will be announced soon.
