Spencer Bates - Goodnight Rosebud Review
This Washington D.C. based singer/songwriter can be seen on a regular basis performing at Mr. Smith's in Georgetown and Howl at the Moon in Baltimore. This modern day piano man puts on a show using only his voice and piano. On his album "Goodnight Rosebud" Spencer Bates uses other instruments and background vocals; but they in no way overshadow or take away from Spencer's talents as a singer or piano player.
"Goodnight Rosebud" contains 11 songs with catchy tunes, sometimes quarky lyrics, and beautiful piano solos. Spencer's Sir Elton like voice lended itself well to high school theatre; which led to film study in college. But Spencer soon discovered other talents and spent every available minute at a piano. This self-taught musician was an excellent student and the music on "Goodnight Rosebud" is proof The film world's loss is music's gain.
Fans of Billy Joel and Sir Elton John; as well as, fans of the piano will enjoy "Goodnight Rosebud" by Spencer Bates.
