Beth Sorrentino will make a solo appearance at two upcoming New York City venues – The Delancey this June 27th and Rockwood Music Hall on June 30th to help celebrate her first release in 18 years. The singer, composer, and pianist will perform songs from Would You Like To Go: A Curt Boettcher Songbook, which hit the streets on June 10th. Favorites from her suddenly, tammy! catalogue will also be making their way into the mix.
About Would You Like To Go: A Curt Boettcher Songbook:
In 2010, Sorrentino discovered the ’60s sunshine pop of the late Curt Boettcher when she first heard the magical 1968 Millennium album Begin. She proposed recording a collection of songs associated with Boettcher, with most written or co-written by him. She enlisted her friend and mentor, producer Sean Slade, who had worked with suddenly, tammy! in the 1990s (Slade’s production credits include Radiohead, Pixies, Hole, Lou Reed, Weezer and others).Sorrentino and Slade crafted an approach that did not attempt to replicate the Boettcher sound, but instead represented a brilliantly idiosyncratic take on the artist’s legacy. The arrangements pay homage to Curt’s genius for vocal harmony, with Sorrentino’s sweet soprano providing all lead and backing voices. Tandyn Almer, who wrote “Along Comes Mary,” called Beth’s version “one of the best I’ve heard. Love her phrasing.” The album showcases Sorrentino’s deft keyboard work on a Mason & Hamlin 1904 upright piano,Mellotron, Wurlitzer piano, Hammond B3, and Fender Rhodes.
