Live From New York is Edie Carey, Teddy Goldstein, Anne Heaton, and Andrew Kerr, who all met in New York City in various fashions sometime between 1995-1999. We have been great friends since then, and we love listening to each other's songs and singing and playing on them as well. As we all tour primarily on our own, the few times a year that we get to tour together have created some of our most inspiring and fun moments onstage.
This album was recorded at Club Passim in Cambridge, Massachusetts on December 27th ad 28th of 2002. We hoped to capture the feel of a live show because it includes musical surprises for us as well as the energy and enthusiasm of you, the audience. We hope you will enjoy listening to it as much as we enjoyed making it! -Anne, Teddy, Edie & Andrew
MORE ABOUT "LIVE FROM NEW YORK"...
Breaking attendance records in clubs and coffeehouses in the U.S. since its inception in 1999, "Live from New York" [LFNY] has quickly emerged as the latest musical sensation on the acoustic scene. It combines the talents of 4 unique New York singer-songwriters in an evening of musical collaboration and off-the-cuff humor. As they take turns leading and accompanying each other, the individual performers share their unique styles and diverse personalities on stage. The show features the honeyed voice and incisive lyrics of Edie Carey, the sardonic wit of Teddy Goldstein, the syncopated, catchy melodies of Anne Heaton, and the comic energetic poignancy of Andrew Kerr. The combined musical energy and irreverent and light-hearted wit of these performers makes LFNY feel like hanging out at a party with your 4 closest (and most talented) friends.
"Any of these talented young performers would merit a review of their own, but as a group they're an absolute riot -- and living proof that New York's next full-fledged folk "scene" has arrived for real."
--Tom Neff, Folk Music Listserver & Grassy Hill Concerts
"I'd miss my own wedding to see this show!!"
"It's like going to see N'Sync, only good!"
"I don't think I've ever seen a show generate this much excitement. Look out world...here comes Live From New York!"
-- Matt Smith, manager, Club Passim, Cambridge, MA
"It's like watching an episode of 'Friends' where everyone is Phoebe"
