Award-winning jazz/pop singer-songwriter Avi Wisnia returns to New York City for a full-band concert in celebration of his new album Catching Leaves!
Thursday Dec 1 at Rockwood Music Hall, Stage 3.
Philadelphia songwriter Avi Wisnia finds inspiration in 1950’s west-coast jazz, acoustic American folk, Brazilian bossa nova, and contemporary piano pop. After the release of his debut studio album, Something New, he performed around the country in prestigious venues alongside renowned artists like The Roots, Ani DiFranco, Arturo Sandoval and Maroon 5, also performing concert tours in Japan, Poland, and Brazil. In addition to being a performing songwriter, Avi Wisnia has given a TED Talk and performed with The Moth storytellers and runs the Philly Songwriters Circle collective. Now, a decade after the release of his debut album, Wisnia is coming back to New York with his band to celebrate the new album, Catching Leaves. The ensemble includes musicians featured on the recording: Chuck Staab on drums, Erik Sayles on guitar and Matt Keppler on bass. The evening will also feature special guests.
Doors at 6:00pm, Music at 7:00pm.
This is a 21+ event.
Tickets are $18 Advance / $20 Door.
Produced by acclaimed bassist/conductor Ken Pendergast, the collection is a tender and intimate ode to living in the moment, to surrendering to forces beyond our control and finding peace in growth, change, and acceptance. Wisnia writes with a gentle touch, reflecting on love and loss with a soulful maturity, mixing hints of jazz, roots, and the Great American Songbook together into an organic swirl that’s at once beautiful and bittersweet. The result is “a riveting collection” (Vents Magazine) that “reminds us to live in the moment. Effortlessly cinematic and well-rounded, allowing us to explore Wisnia’s vast creative abilities.” (Buzz Music). Catching Leaves is a moving, intimate album shaped by the power of human connection and community, a poignant collection that calls to mind everyone from Rufus Wainwright and Teddy Thompson to Melody Gardot and Norah Jones as it navigates darkness and doubt, faith and family, pain and resilience.
