    Hailed by Rolling Stone as "one of the year's very best albums," Gabriel Kahane's major label debut, The Ambassador (Sony Music), is a meditation on the underbelly of Los Angeles through the lens of 10 street addresses. This fall, Kahane and his band will appear in the premiere of a staged version of The Ambassador directed by Tony-winner John Tiffany (Once, Black Watch) and designed by Tony-winner Christine Jones (Spring Awakening, American Idiot). Dividing his time between the club and the concert hall, Kahane has been commissioned by, among others, the Brooklyn Academy of Music, Carnegie Hall, the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Kronos Quartet, and Orpheus Chamber Orchestra. Kahane's musical, February House, received world premiere productions at the Long Wharf Theater in New Haven, Connecticut and New York's Public Theater in 2012; an original cast album was released on StorySound Records. 

    Multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter Matt Kampe will be opening the show with music from his debut album, Life's a Silver Screen.

    Listen to Gabriel Kahane's "Bradbury (304 Broadway)" here:
