WESTHAMPTON BEACH PERFORMING ARTS CENTER PRESENTS
Broadway star and soulful jazz musician, Morgan James, debuts at Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center on Sunday, June 16th at 8pm. Tickets $35 & $45.
Throughout her spectacular career, singer, songwriter, and Broadway actress Morgan James has taken on beloved roles and songs to give them her unique perspective and make them her own. She rocked the stage as Christ herself in an all-female version of Jesus Christ Superstar, took on a full-album acoustic cover of D’Angelo’s Black Messiah, and brought the critics to their feet with her cover of Joni Mitchell’s classic Blue album.
James has also recorded and toured with Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox, a musical collective that covers modern songs with a vintage twist – turning today’s pop hits into swing and jazz classics. Most recently, she released a video in which she put her signature spin on the Nirvana grunge rock classic Lithium.
Now James has set her sights on one of the world’s most iconic records: the Beatles’ White Album. While each song is performed in its original key, James provides a soulful vibe and feminine flair to songs originally penned and recorded by four lads from Liverpool.
Critics have raved about James’ musical abilities and knack for performing, with the New York Times dubbing her “A phenomenal talent whose feel for classic soul music is bone deep.”
Whether she’s writing and exploring new material or experimenting and putting her own spin on time-honored classics, Morgan James is guaranteed to delight both her fans and fans of the original material alike. Don’t miss this opportunity to experience a soul-stirring vocalist!
