Peter Cincotti will release 'East of Angel Town', his Warner Bros. Records debut, on October 22nd 2007. 'East of Angel Town' represents the first album of all new material for the 23 year-old native New Yorker following successful album releases for the Concord label.
For 'East of Angel Town', Peter Cincotti collaborated with famed producer and multiple Grammy award winner David Foster (Michael BublÃƒÂ©, Josh Groban) along Foster's regular associates Humberto Gatica and Jochem van der Saag. Cincotti also worked with noted lyricist John Bettis (The Carpenters, Madonna). The result is a startlingly energetic collection of pop, blues, funk and jazz that highlights Cincotti's percussive piano playing and rich vocals.
Topics on the album include the seductive world of Los Angeles ('Angel Town'), a symbolic song of loss ('Goodbye Philadelphia'), and love and loneliness in New York City ('Cinderella Beautiful'). Each song tells a unique character and paints characters that leave one with the feeling of having walked all day on the streets of Manhattan. Sonically, the album encompasses a classic edge in the shape of a live recording infused with elements of contemporary production.
Peter Cincotti first earned widespread acclaim when his debut album topped the Billboard Jazz chart, making him the youngest artist to do so.
