This is a rare, not-to-be-missed pairing of two of Nippertown’s most talented, yet most elusive musical artists.
On Saturday evening, super singer-songwriters Rosanne Raneri and Bryan Thomas – both veteran musicians with award-winning recordings to their credit – will step into the spotlight at the intimate Steamer No. 10 Theatre in Albany.
With such stunning albums as 2000’s “Parhelion” and 2004’s “Shift,” Raneri ascended to the top of the Nippertown singer-songwriter heap, but she’s been missing in action on the local live music scene for some time, as she concentrated on theater. Fortunately for all of us, she’s been making a return to music as of late, and the Steamer No. 10 is the perfect place to catch her power and passion.
Thomas’s 21st century recorded output includes 2002’s “Ones and Zeros,” 2004’s “Babylon” and 2008’s brilliant “One Three Six Nine Lights,” all infused with bold splashes of rock, funk, pop and hip-hop. Like Raneri, he is well-respected by his peers, loved by his fans and all too infrequently seen on stage.
Word is that the two singers might also join forces for few selections, as well, making for a truly historic evening on Saturday.
Rosanne Raneri and Bryan Thomas will serve up a delicious and rare double bill at 8pm on Saturday at the Steamer No. 10 Theatre in Albany. Tickets are on sale now, priced at $13 in advance; $15 at the door. Call 518.438.5503 to purchase tix.
