Late Night Piano Bar
After touring for two years in support of his pop rock debut, 'Pocket Change', Nathan Temby is back with a little project called 'late night piano bar'. "The story behind this CD is that I really wanted to put out a cabaret-style work between 'Pocket Change' and the next all original CD. I have been doing a lot of piano-bar type shows lately, though not Broadway. I decided that what I really wanted was to release something purely acoustic that reflected the style of a piano bar. The songs I chose are songs I've loved from musicals and songs I've performed over the years. I also wanted to release two songs from the musical I am working on so that people could get a feel for it. "'December' was a song I recorded a demo of six years ago which was sold as part of a holiday sampler that is now no longer available. I have re-recorded it since I think it fits the cabaret style, not to mention that the CD is coming out during the holidays. ''I Will Still Be Here' is a song I wrote seven or eight years ago when I first moved to San Francisco. It wasn't a b-side for 'Pocket Change', as it was never recorded during that process, but I did have a demo I recorded when I first wrote it. It seemed to really work in the context of this CD, so I recorded it added it to the mix. "I also knew that sometime this fall I would be playing on board a cruise ship as part of the piano bar, so it all just seemed like the right thing to do. This CD is a very personal little project that I hope you all will love!"
