ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
WHAT THE PRESS HAS TO SAY:

Although the title of Brian De Lorenzo's Found Treasures refers to the songs it contains, the cabaret singer is one himself. Possessing a clear tenor which he uses with earnest emotional intensity, De Lorenzo sings with complete commitment. Some of his selections may not have been "lost" to Show Music readers, but the 19 numbers form an appealing program. And where else would you be likely to hear Angel's "Astoria Gloria" and "How Do You Say Goodbye?," Romance/Romance's "Words He Doesn't Say," and 3 Guys Naked From the Waist Down's "I Don't Believe in Heroes Anymore?" De Lorenzo's sincerity makes familiar songs such as Who Will Buy?" (Oliver!), "Do I Hear a Waltz?" and "Tonight at Eight" (She Loves Me) seem fresh.
-MAX O. PREEO, SHOW MUSIC

When a singer has a voice like Brian De Lorenzo, musicians like to say, "He is a songwriter's best friend." De Lorenzo brings to the stage an instrument that is not only well-trained but strikingly beautiful. He has one of those rare voices that make first-time listeners stop and say, "Who is that?"
-CHET WILLIAMSON, WORCESTER MAGAZINE

Emotional honesty is a cabaret singer's stock in trade, and De Lorenzo has it. He makes every song sound like an account of his own experience and emotions, and he conveys each one with a directness that makes the experience the listener's as well.... De Lorenzo...is a talented music theater artist with an easy-to-listen-to voice, an engaging, emotionally honest style, and an uncanny knack for picking great, little-known songs.... Ask your record store for it, and if they don't have it, tell them they should.
-JON LEHMAN, THE PATRIOT LEDGER

This young man really impressed us when we were called to judge a cabaret contest at Pegasus... When we caught his debut show at Eighty Eight's...our high expectations were rewarded with an evening that was a delight. Singing lesser known Broadway show tunes intertwined with biographical anecdotes, the evening was indeed memorable... Cabaret demands honesty of its performers, and Brian never strayed from this requirement. His vocals place him among the best currently appearing on the New York cabaret scene. And his comic timing was not lost on the enthusiastic audience... Brian's radiant charm won our hearts.
-STU HAMSTRA, CABARET HOTLINE ONLINE

He knows how to get to the heart of a ballad...He builds moments with a sweet earnest quality in both his voice and his demeanor...He's pure cabaret.
-LESLEY ALEXANDER, WVOX/WRTN RADIO

BRIAN De LORENZO is an accomplished actor and cabaret singer who has performed from Alaska to Israel. He has performed his cabaret shows at venues such as Eighty-Eight's, Don't Tell Mama, The Encore and Pegasus in New York; Piaf's in San Francisco; Scullers, Club Café and The Blacksmith House in Boston; and The Crown & Anchor in Provincetown. He has also performed at the prestigious Mabel Mercer Cabaret Conventions at New York's Town Hall Theatre and at Chicago's Park West.

Brian enjoys performing songs that audiences don't get the opportunity to hear very often. More than half of the songs in his cabaret shows "Found Treasures" and "More Found Treasures" are from unsuccessful Broadway shows because even a show that didn't have a long run can have wonderful songs. Of course, Brian sings more familiar songs, from the Great American Songbook, as well.

Brian earned the title "2001 Performer of the Year" by winning first place in the Adult Solo category at Talent America's 27th "Talent of the Year Awards" at the New York Sheraton Hotel and Towers, competing with performers from all over the United States. He also received the Talent America Blair Hammond Award for Best Male Musical Theatre - Adult Vocal. Contestants performed for approximately 45 judges who are professionals in the entertainment industry.

Brian is a founding member of the Boston Association of Cabaret Artists (BACA) and served as the organization's president for four years. He also served as editor of their newsletter, "BACA News" for over four years. Brian used to write the column on Boston-area cabaret news for the international cabaret magazine, "Cabaret Scenes."

One of the best cabaret recordings I have heard.
Beautiful melodies and a beautiful voice join together to make this one of my favorite cds in a long, long while. I will be listening to this one for many years to come.

Ask your record store for it, and if they don't have it, tell them they should.
Brian De Lorenzo is a very-easy-to-listen-to singer, with a wide-ranging tenor voice and a keen interest in tracking down little-known show tunes that are worth notice. The evidence is on his new, self-issued CD “Found Treasures,” and it’s a strong argument for De Lorenzo’s artistry as a solo music theater performer and for the merit of the songs he has found in Broadway’s discard bin.

De Lorenzo’s 16-track, 57-minuted CD is a mixture of obscure songs that deserve a better fate, a few well-chosen pop ballads and anthems, some show tunes that will be familiar to music theater fans, and a few that will be familiar to everyone.

He opens with an entry from the “I’ve heard that before, but where?” category, “Who Will Buy (This Wonderful Morning)?” It’s an upbeat, heart-on-its-sleeve song in the “Everything’s Coming Up Roses” vein – only better because of its continually morphing wordplay and modulating keys. And De Lorenzo delivers it with unabashed enthusiasm and ringing conviction.

The second song is an even deeper case of déjà vu – “I’ve Never Said I Love You” which subtly echoes in its music as well as lyric the better known “I’ve Never Been in Love Before.”

There are a few well-known numbers to be sure. There’s a witty medley of the Richard Rodgers-Stephen Sondheim “Do I Hear a Waltz?” with “Love Makes the World Go Round.” And there’s a welcome restatement of the ardent young man’s anthem “I Can See It” from Tom Jones and Harvey Schmidt’s “The Fantasticks.”
There are also a couple of songs from “Angel,” a 1978 show by Gary Geld and Peter Udell that De Lorenzo says got him hooked on reviving neglected gems in the first place.

And they are gems. “Astoria Gloria has the bright, nonsensical lilt of a true Tin Pan Alley tune, and the ballad “How Do You Say Goodbye?” takes a fresh and emotionally truthful approach to a familiar theme, summed up in its concluding couplet, “Love doesn’t simply die/How do you say goodbye?”

Emotional honesty is a cabaret singer's stock in trade, and De Lorenzo has it. He makes every song sound like an account of his own experience and emotions, and he conveys each one with a directness that makes the experience the listener's as well.

You can hear De Lorenzo for yourself Wednesday night at Scullers (one show only) or by getting the CD. Ask your record store for it, and if they don't have it, tell them they should.
