Former Canadian Tenor, Joey Niceforo, brings new music from Abbey Road Studios home to Sudbury
December 7, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
On Thursday, December 7, 2017, Joey Niceforo will perform in his hometown of Sudbury, ON. Niceforo will be performing in concert a selection of his favourite pieces, some holiday songs, as well as officially premiering songs from his upcoming album ‘Priceless’; recorded with a full orchestra at Abbey Road Studios in London, England.
With a more than respectable singing career under his belt, the former Canadian Tenor and Sudbury native Niceforo spent the better part of 2015 and 2016 working towards the release of his first full-length solo album – Priceless. The album, which he recorded at Abbey Road Studios in London, England, includes backup with a full orchestra, and a renowned production team, including Juno winner Sam Reid (Glass Tiger), Grammy winners Steve Sidwell (Beautiful: The Carole King Musical), John Jones (Celine Dion), and the late Steve Price (Adele and Sam Smith). This privately funded endeavour was remarkable for Niceforo, and at times an overwhelming experience.
“The first time I walked in and heard the orchestra play, I had tears in my eyes,” Niceforo said when reflecting on his introduction to the legendary studio, and the full orchestra that would be backing him up.
After a lengthy creative process, Niceforo genuinely feels the album is a piece of his heart and soul, ready to be shared. Before the broader, international release of this immense production, Niceforo insists on an intimate sneak peek of Priceless, to be performed in his hometown. The city of Sudbury has provided Niceforo with immeasurable support from the beginning, and here he is proud to host the first concert that will feature songs from Priceless.
Priceless features song selections chosen by Niceforo for their powerful lyrics and beautiful sentiments. The album includes tracks by artists such as Abba, Tom Waits and Sir Elton John, to name a few, with each song deconstructed then arranged into beautiful and complex orchestrations. The reimagined songs were produced and recorded with a full orchestra, bringing to life an accessible, yet well-composed style of music Niceforo has coined ‘New Classic’.
Joey Niceforo made his professional debut in 2005 when he joined the original Canadian Tenors. Niceforo then went on to tour internationally, including performances at the Beijing and Vancouver Olympics, and Carnegie Hall in New York City. He has also been featured performing on national television broadcasts for NBC, ABC and the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC). Niceforo is currently readying for the long-anticipated release of his full-length studio album Priceless, and the debut of a style of music he’s coined ‘New Classic’.!
Don’t miss Joey Niceforo debuting songs from his highly anticipated album Priceless, live on Thursday, December 7, 2017, in Sudbury, ON at the All Nations Church, starting at 7:30 pm. Tickets are $40 and are available online at tickets.sudburyteatre.on.ca.
