LAURA ZUCKER “SAY YES” CD RELEASE PARTY–SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 16, 2017
Claudia Russell and Bruce Kaplan open
This will be a show in the old CD release tradition: Laura will play the songs from Say Yes from start to finish, as they appear on the CD. SAY YES, Laura Zucker’s fifth release, is a collection of songs exploring ways that we can find the positive in a world of negative, examining difficult feelings and turning challenge into redemption. She’ll be joined by a band full of special guests including Bill Wentz, Bill Younger, Cynthia Davis, Chuck Rosene, Claudia Russell and Bruce Kaplan.
Singer-songwriter Laura Zucker wins audiences over with a hard-won perspective and a positive spin. The powerful imagery of her songs and stories ring so true you might think she’s read your diary – and you’ll find yourself humming her infectious melodies for days to come. Laura’s incisive yet sensitive lyrics are matched by her evocative melodies and arrangements that cut straight to the heart.
