LORI LIEBERMAN UPCOMING CONCERTS

The Cutting Room NYC

7:00 pm


While I won’t be doing many concerts this year, I have decided to perform at one of my favorite venues in New York, The Cutting Room. I’ll be doing songs from my early albums, as well as from my most recent LP, “Truly”. I truly hope to see you there!

LORI LIEBERMAN OCT 20 at THE CUTTING ROOM

Please join me for my special concert at The Cutting Room NYC on October 20th at 7:00pm.

I love the venue because it’s airy and the sound is superior. Featuring New York- based Matt Baker, Alvester Garnett, Max Light, Kevin Hailey, Susan D. Mandel, Monique Brooks Roberts, and my special guest, the wonderful Mary Fahl who I’ve invited to sing one of her new songs from her most recent recording.

 

I’ll be celebrating the release of my latest album, Truly which is out now on all platforms, and for you audiophiles out there, it has just been released on Dolby Atmos.

 

With all my best wishes,
Lori

Truly, is, in my opinion, Lori Lieberman’s finest album to-date, both musically & sonically, guaranteed to become an audiophile favorite. A potpourri of fresh covers of the American Songbook, sprinkled with new, original compositions, embellished by original arrangements, played by some of the finest musicians, Truly was recorded, mixed and mastered to perfection.”

On a Higher Note

“It’s taken the half-century since her eponymous debut, but Lori Lieberman – who always was a hybrid of singer-songwriter and performer of others’ compositions – has revealed yet another masterful talent, seasoned by the passing of decades. As revealed on Truly, her way with a handful of standards begs for even more. From the opening notes of ‘You Go To My Head’, Lori emerges as an impeccable yet sensitive interpreter of classics from the Great American Songbook and beyond. If you loved the way Carly Simon and Linda Ronstadt looked to the gems of an earlier era, you’re in for a thrill.”

2022

Sometimes an album can take a long time to think about. And sometimes, even longer to record. This album, however, proved me wrong on both counts. Twelve songs in six days!

The two years of Pandemic isolation affected everyone in different ways. For me, I descended into a kind of funk that led to a frustrating rabbit hole of writing songs that even I didn’t want to listen to. As I struggled with subjects that were either too positive, too self-indulgent, or too negative, I began to despair. Until one day while walking my dogs, I thought, “Wait! What about singing- I can still sing, can’t I?”

I thought about the songs that had filled my head with memories while growing up in Switzerland: wedged between my two sisters in the back, our mother in the passenger seat, my father would drive us through the dizzying mountain roads playing Sinatra and Bobby Short on his latest eight-track system. I loved and sang along to I Like the Likes of You, Moonlight in Vermont, You Go to My Head, and so many others. The music provided the perfect backdrop for a childhood marked by my father’s adventurous and joyful spirit. Having lost him three years ago I feel in many ways, he is behind this project, and so I dedicate this to my always colorful and forever, complicated father.

Once I had the idea to do an album of these songs, I ran it by my husband and Executive Producer, Joseph Cali, whose enthusiasm meant so much to me. From there, I reached out to Matt Rollings from Nashville, whose work I had first discovered on some of Mary Chapin Carpenter’s albums as well as his collaborations with Lyle Lovett, Willie Nelson, and Alison Krauss.

Joining Matt and me on this album, and superstars in their own right, were the gifted David Piltch on bass, Lyle Workman on guitar, and Victor Indrizzo on drums. We came together over Joe’s famous pour-over coffee, and in music and friendship, for six days recording live, two songs a day, at Apogee Studios in Santa Monica, CA.

I could never thank Betty Bennett and Bob Clearmountain enough for opening their studio to me.

Notes from the Executive Producer
Live At Apogee Studios

When Lori told me about her idea to record an album of standards with a small Quartet led by Matt Rollings on piano, my first realization was that we couldn’t do this in our normal studio. This had to be performed live. I contacted my good friends- the legendary engineer, Bob Clearmountain and Betty Bennett, who is one of the founders of Apogee Digital, which creates the most wonderful professional audio devices in the world, delivering the ultimate sound and quality. I asked if the space would be available for a 6-day period for a live recording. It was an intense high-pressure schedule, but I told them of our concept and how Apogee Studio, well, had “Magic.” The control room had Bob’s original Neve board, the classic recording console, and had an amazing stock of classic tube and solid- state microphones. And to add to it, Bob said he would like to engineer and mix the project. The first day we arrived I knew this was a pairing of musicians and technicians made in heaven. It was an incredible collaboration right from the start. I am confident you will enjoy every note.

MY YEAR OF MAGICAL THINKING

Two years ago I had a dream to create a genre-bending album that would feature the Matangi Quartet from the Netherlands. I knew that I didn’t want to confine my music to any specific lane, and that I hoped to present this collection in concert, and in beautiful and respected venues. These photos and videos are from my recent tour that included Carnegie Hall, NY, Het Concertgebouw, Amsterdam, and several others throughout the Netherlands. I came home to LA following my tour, with a feeling of fulfillment, and that my dream had been realized.

MEETING ROBERTA FLACK AFTER ALL THESE YEARS

I never really thought this would happen… so many years had passed since Roberta Flack had heard me on an airplane and recorded “Killing Me Softly”, – the song that would forever alter my life… but call it synchronicity or just the passage of time, she asked if we could meet just prior to my Carnegie Hall concert, and it was one of the most meaningful moments for me. She was beautiful beyond words, and it was profound, two women, forever joined together by a song.
