Album Notes
"The Boy from New York City" was written and first performed by The Ad Libs in 1964 and also by Darts in 1978 before becoming a hit for the Manhattan Transfer in 1981. This cover has the foot-tapping beat and fun doo-wop sound of the classic versions, in a fresh new arrangement by multi-instrumentalist Andrew Stein that features Grammy-nominated, Juno Award-winning pianist Michael Creber (Michelle’s dad)…and, of course, 12-year-old Michelle herself on lead vocals.

Had never heard this song before, brought a smile to my face when I heard Michelle singing it and with Andrew Steins backing vocals in there too, it just becomes such a great musical piece, very upbeat and great to sing along too also.

One Talented Young Woman
A very talented young artist. The song is great. All her songs are worth a listen and in my opinion are an instant buy. She has a singing voice that you will surely remember and have stuck in your head for days(not a bad thing). Aside from that she plays the voice of THE cutest filly in My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, Applebloom and the singing voice of Sweetie Belle. AND has also stared in several made for tv movies. Thats one fantastical young woman. This is a girl you need to keep your eyes on and stay updated on her career. She is going places.

Jake Schroer

Yes. Just yes.
Don't let your eyes fool you. Michelle is not just another young girl trying to sing. She's a young girl who CAN sing. My word, can she sing. She could sing the phone book and make it sound good. And the best part is, she's still young. That voice is only going to get better as she grows up. Ladies and gentlemen, I think we have a diamond in the rough here.

You'll love this FOREVER!!!
Michelle Creber has an excellent and unique voice. My initial reason for becoming a fan was due to her voice acting of Apple Bloom in My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic but once I heard her other work, I really enjoyed it too -- enough to purchase the song. This is something I rarely do, so I would like to think that says something about the quality of her work. I'm sure I'll always think of her as Apple Bloom but years from now, I think she'll be known by most people for her fantastic music instead.

Toe-Tapping Energetic Cover
Michelle Creber and Andrew Stein do an 80's classic justice here, with surprisingly powerful vocals that build as the song progresses, and an amazingly mixed musical arrangement, with a strong assist from Michael Creber on the piano. Definitely an enjoyable, energetic cover that will get your toes tapping.
