Tituss Burgess - the rising R&B vocalist and songwriter who has starred on television in the Emmy Award winning NBC comedy "30 Rock" and on Broadway in Jersey Boys and The Little Mermaid - has announced the release of his exciting and personal debut album Comfortable. He will perform a special CD release concert at New World Stages (340 West 50th Street) with a 10-piece band tonight, October 14 at 11:00 PM.
Tickets - which are available at www.BrownPaperTickets.com - are $15 in
advance and $18 at the door. The album will be available at iTunes and CDBaby.com.
Comfortable is a unique and intensely-personal collection of Burgess's original R&B songs that frankly and emotionally explore issues of life and love. In a project that's been in development for two years, he sings boldly and openly about feeling safe in his own skin. "All I Need" is melodic and reflective request for a new love.
Displaying his incredible vocal range, "I'll Be Alright" is a nakedly emotional reaction to a troubled relationship, further heightened by a stirring string arrangement. "Stop Calling Me," riding a groove influenced by Steve Wonder's hits of the 1970s, takes an honest look at the financial realities of being a performer in New York. Both this track and "It's Over" hold up expertly with the best of adult contemporary radio. The driving "Glass Ceiling" reflects the inspiration of 1980s performers like Phil Collins. The album's bonus track is a soaring rendition of the popular standard, "For All We Know," recorded live at B.B. King's.
