«Songs for Singing 2»
(feat. Passenger String Quartet & Billy Brush)
Matty Gervais opens
BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND! We planned to do this show only once, but it turned out to be such a delight (for both the musicians and apparently the audience!) that there have been many requests for a reprise, so WE'RE DOING IT AGAIN! This show sold out well in advance last time, so grab your tix early!
«Songs for Singing 2» will feature Shelby Earl performing a selection of original songs in a classic, «American Songbook» style, accompanied only by solo piano and string quartet. Featured instrumentalists Billy Brush (piano) and The Passenger String Quartet will again help Earl reimagine arrangements of songs off her latest studio album (The Man Who Made Himself a Name), as well as selected songs from her previous two releases (Swift Arrows & Burn the Boats) + brand new, never-before-heard tunes!
The wildly talented Matty Gervais (of Mikey and Matty
and The Head and The Heart
) will open solo.
BACK STORY: My friend & producer, Damien Jurado, said to me some time ago, «You know what I want? I want to hear your songs totally stripped down, performed with just your voice and a piano. Can you please play a show like that?» To which I answered «of COURSE!» But I couldn't help myself and thought «but we've got to also add STRINGS!» Thankfully, the amazingly talented Billy Brush
& Andrew D.B. Joslyn
both immediately caught the vision and helped to create a stunning new set of music.
We can't wait to do it again in 2019 with a few new tunes in the mix, and we hope to see you all there!
