To Laura With Love – Grace Cosgrove Sings Laura Nyro
Award winning singer, Grace Cosgrove, and her amazing seven-piece band will reprise her SOLD OUT Laura Nyro show, “To Laura With Love”
Laura Nyro, the innovative singer-songwriter of the 60’s and 70’s is best known for writing such memorable hits as WEDDING BELL BLUES, ELI’S COMING, AND WHEN I DIE, STONEY END and STONED SOUL PICNIC. And, artists such as The 5th Dimension, Blood, Sweat and Tears and Barbra Streisand had major hits with her songs. She broke all the rules, combining pop, soul, jazz gospel and folk,
From the first time she heard Laura Nyro’s music as a teenager, Grace Cosgrove was enthralled and transported by the spirit, passion and poetic storytelling of Laura’s songwriting art, and has been interpreting her songs throughout her performing career. Never seeking to imitate the Nyro style, Grace has been able to mesmerize audiences with a sensitivity and sincerity all her own – paying tribute, but never seeking to reproduce that unique voice. Instead, she has always sought to give the shifting tempos and poetic lyrics of Laura Nyro her own personal touch.
Grace Cosgrove started singing at a very young age, performing in venues from her native New York City to Los Angeles. With a wealth of experience that took her from backup singer to jingle singer to the unique and gifted solo performer that she is today, she would love to thank the incredible musicians in her band and on her CD for taking this joyful and unforgettable journey with her.
Grace is thrilled to be bringing back this music to Laura’s avid fans, as well as introducing this ground breaking singer/songwriter to a new generation of audiences. By the way, “Do you surrey? Do you picnic?” Come to the Metropolitan Room, party, and find out!
To add to the celebration, Grace’s CD, “To Laura With Love,” will be for sale after the show and 10% of the proceeds from the sale of the cd will go to GILDA’S CLUB NEW YORK CITY an organization that provides support for cancer patients and their families.
