Fresh off her European tour with Postmodern Jukebox, Shoshana Bean is returning home to Los Angeles this weekend with her one-night-only show at The Hotel Café. With an impressive number of Broadway shows under her belt, Shoshana has also released several independent solo albums, including: Superhero, O’ Farrell Street and her semi-acoustic EP, Shadows to Light, which was #1 on the iTunes R&B and Blues chart. I got to talk with the powerhouse vocalist recently about her upcoming show, what she likes to do on her days off and what she considers her career highlight.
Hey Shoshana! You have a performance coming up at the Hotel Cafe in Los Angeles on May 14th. What can audiences expect to see/hear?
A lot of new music! Trying out a few tunes I’ve written in the past few months…I’m also throwing in some old tunes and a few covers as well.
What are some of your favorite songs from your albums and why?
“Blood From a Stone” is one of my favorites because it’s a rare occasion that I wrote the type of song I set out to write, which I feel authentically represents the kind of music I was raised on and inspired by. I also love “This War” as it’s highly personal and again, I’m proud of how it so articulately describes my feelings during a very difficult end to a relationship.
