LA and San Francisco CD Release Parties SOLD OUT!
DAVID BARON MARKS HOMECOMING SHOW WITH FLORIDA CD RELEASE PARTY
Delray Beach, FL — Singer-songwriter David Baron will extend his nationwide tour to the east coast this February to celebrate the release of his self-titled debut at City Limits, a 600-capacity music venue on the Atlantic strip in Delray Beach.
Baron’s Florida CD Release Party on Saturday Feb. 28 also marks his homecoming show, as the Plantation, Florida native left South Florida to attend Stanford University in 2002.
A passionate singer, gifted pianist and insightful songwriter, Baron will perform his unique brand of piano rock featured on the six original tracks he wrote for his first solo EP David Baron.
“We receive literally hundreds of CDs from emerging artists each week, and it’s rare to find one as developed and impressive as David Baron’s,” said Lee Abrams, Chief Programming Officer of XM Satellite Radio. “David demonstrates a technical excellence balanced with a mature approach to song construction and attitude that are among the key foundations of successful music. We will begin airing him on our Unsigned Channel shortly, and I would be surprised if he remained ‘Unsigned’ for very long.”
En route to his homecoming show in Delray Beach, Baron will play 5 shows at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, UT, including performances on TV and radio, a live artist showcase and a headlining show.
David Baron’s two west coast CD Release Parties sold out legendary venues the Viper Room (Los Angeles) and Cafe du Nord (San Francisco) in Fall 2008.
His LA CD Release Party included a guest appearance by The Bryan Brothers (#1 World-Ranked Men’s Doubles Tennis Team), who sat in with Baron’s 5-piece band to play Elton John’s “Tiny Dancer” with Mike Bryan on drums and brother Bob on organ.
“Mike and I are big fans of David and are lucky to call him our friend,” said Bob. “He is a musical genius and his new album is awesome. We recently played with the Counting Crows in Tampa but being able to play with David in such a historic venue as the Viper Room so close to home was equally incredible.”
Baron first hooked up with the Bryans in September 2008 while performing at their inaugural Bryan Brothers All-Star Tennis Smash charity gala in Thousand Oaks, CA. There, the 24-year-old singer shared the stage with stars Brandi Carlile and Evan and Jaron, and played to an all-star crowd that included Tennis Hall of Famer Andre Agassi and WTA star Maria Sharapova.
Tickets for David Baron’s CD Release Party at City Limits are $10, and are available at the door and online at www.citylimitsdelray.com. Doors open at City Limits (19 NE 3rd Ave) at 8:00 pm for adults 18-and-older.
