LOVE…The Concert Starring David Vernon
 
Witness the true and intimate story of a love triangle come full circle as told through the compositions of the world’s most sensitive love songs. Alex Leonard is Music Directing this concert and it will include material from my forthcoming album "LOVE". The LOVE album is a collection of favorite love songs rearranged and given a contemporary and cutting edge vibe. This concert at the Metropolitan Room will include many of these pieces in an acoustic and intimate setting. The album and concert are 2 thirds in the LOVE trilogy project that we're launching this year. The project will culminate to Beloved which is a musical theatre piece. I hope that you'll come along for the ride through our examination and expansion of LOVE.

Remy Block BWW Review:
By Elegantly Examining Sexual Duality, David Vernon's Sensitive LOVE...THE CONCERT 
at the Metropolitan Room Is Singularly Enthralling.  The man possesses style.  Vernon's voice is a disciplined instrument. His intonation and dynamics were impeccable all evening, and his aura saturated each tune, rendering them all uniquely his own.  Not only is Vernon a skilled vocalist, his sound is lovely and emotive.  Vernon carried it off, oozing Nosferatu chic.  The taut, lean yet rich narration was impressive.  It is exciting to be enveloped into a world that feels simultaneously idiosyncratic and completely genuine.  Vernon creates theater bordering on melodrama, yet projects a vulnerability that remains honest and secure.  He is meticulous and then spontaneously, delightfully imperfect. Vernon is his voice--strange, bright and wonderful.
 
Ron Forman Cabaret Scenes Review:
David Vernon is a remarkably unique talent whose stage presence is so riveting, it is virtually impossible to take your eyes off of him.
Combine that intense presence with great acting skill and a poignantly beautiful sound, and you get a very special artist.
 
His autobiographical show at the Metropolitan Room used an extremely relevant song list that brought the audience into the inner workings of David’s soul.  His acting skill made me believe.  I have never heard the “suicide song” “Gloomy Sunday” sung with more emotion and depth of feeling than Vernon brought to it.  What’ll I Do” and “Always,” sung as movingly as I have ever heard them performed.
