An Evening with Lori Lieberman

November 8, 2014 – 7:30pm

Zankel Hall at Carnegie Hall

Celebrating a career that began in 1970’s Los Angeles with the song, “Killing Me Softly”, singer-songwriter, Lori Lieberman, will be making her debut at Carnegie Hall on Saturday, November 8th at Zankel Hall.   Additional show information can be found here.

“It’s a tremendous honor to play in such a beautiful hall, and such a bucket list event for me,” adds Lori.  “ The culmination of forty at-times-challenging years in a business I’m grateful to have participated in”.

 ‘An Evening with Lori Lieberman’ will be a retrospective of Lori’s music, from her early albums to her soon to be released 15th CD. .. and will include guitarist Jason Orme (Alanis Morissette), Mark Stewart, (Paul Simon’s longtime multi- instrumentalist), New York favorites Aaron Weinstein on Violin and Ashley Bathgate on Cello, and from the Netherlands, Denise Jansen-Brand on piano.

Born in Los Angeles and raised in Switzerland, Lori Lieberman became a fixture in the 70’s Laurel Canyon Troubadour songwriter scene along with Joni Mitchell, Jackson Browne and the Eagles.   After attending University in Boston, Lieberman signed her first record deal with Capitol Records, where she recorded five albums with musicians that included a young Larry Carlton, Tom Scott, Sneaky Pete, and the late pianist Joe Sample. She toured with Randy Newman, Billy Joel, Leonard Cohen, John Sebastian and Rick Nelson, to name a few.

Ms. Lieberman’s defining career/life changing moment came one evening when her good friend, Michele Willens, invited her to a concert at the Troubadour, and the song, “Killing Me Softly,” born out of that experience, became one of the most beloved of our generation.

At the dawn of disco through the 80s, Lori spent time away from the industry expecting never to return. However, she was coaxed back to record in 1994, with her well received CD, “A Thousand Dreams”, and continues to record and play live throughout the US and Europe to a loyal and devoted fan base.
