Today’s the big day; are you ready?
My twelfth album is being released today. It’s called Matt Savage: Piano Voyages and it’s solo piano. And I’m about to follow it up with my longest tour ever, on both coasts. Everything is so exciting…
Piano Voyages is my most introspective and personal album, with eight new original compositions balanced with tributes to Herbie Hancock, Wes Montgomery and the Beatles. There are many tunes about both Boston and New York, plus some electric keyboard interludes (including a “virtual blues”). Saxophonist Erena Terakubo is a special guest on one song.
My official CD Release Concert is at the Regattabar in Cambridge, MA this Wednesday (October 19th). In anticipation, I’ve been appearing on radio stations in the area, including WUNR Radio International (Boston) and WICN (Worcester).
After that, I have a short break before I head on tour from November 3rd through 13th – which will be almost nonstop – as well as the 25th. I’ll be on both coasts and I’m looking forward to visiting Seattle (WA), Lynchburg (VA) and Old Lyme (CT) for the first time.
There will also be two big “return to NYC” performances: one solo concert at the spacious and beautiful Stephen Wise Free Synagogue, and one performance at Midtown’s historic Town Hall theater (where I will open for Steve Earle, Graham Nash and Shawn Colvin). It’s truly an honor to be in the company of such pop music legends.
After this fall, both the weather and the tour schedule might cool down a little…
It’s so much fun to be back on the road again – as Willie Nelson would say.
