No themes, no gimmicks. Just great songs, sung well. Wendy Lane Bailey and arranger/composer Michele Brourman have combined their musical sensibilities in a program of the best in lyric-driven contemporary song with a strong feminine point of view. Joining them as special guest will be singer Laurel Massé, founding member of Grammy award-winning vocal group The Manhattan Transfer.
The Metropolitan Room dates are a continuation of a partnership that began in the spring of 2009. Brourman, who is best known as the composer of songs like “My Favorite Year” and for her work with Amanda McBroom, and Bailey had been talking about working together for several years. “When we finally got together, we had about ninety songs to look at, and we had a wonderful time narrowing the list down to the ones we eventually put in the set. It’s wonderful working with someone who has flawless musical taste, even better when they write great songs too!” says Bailey. In addition to songs by Brourman and McBroom, songs by Joni Mitchell, June Carter Cash, Gretchen Peters, Cole Porter and Marshall Barer are part of the set. Familiar tunes are given new settings, and obscure tunes feel like old friends.

From the Metropolitan Room, Bailey heads down to Washington, DC for an appearance at Blues Alley. Next, she and Brourman will head into the recording studio to lay down tracks for a CD scheduled for release later this summer. Her website is .
