Theater Of Innocence: Now Showing At A Theater Near You

 

 

"An ambitious mix of rhythms and beats held together with a strong sense of melody, an eclectic mix of genres and influences with strong references to artists like Randy Newman, Peter Gabriel, Thomas Dolby, and Dave Matthews."

Jake Ottman, East Coast Creative Director EMI Music Publishing.

 

"Now Showing At A Theater Near You" contains over 70 minutes of songs about life
in a post 9/11 world, combining the personal voice of singer-songwriter Fred Israel
with a familiar but distinctive sound of a live band.

Theater of Innocence

is the alternative-pop brainchild of Fred Israel, songwriter-producer-vocalist and multi-instrumentalist-composer. EMI refers to the songs on "Now Showing" as a product of "smart and ambitious writing". The arrangements are dressed up in a mix of acoustic and electronic r&b/rock/jazz influenced hooks floating over contemporary urban grooves.
