Returning to 54 Below after sold-out two concerts in 2022, Collard & Rosenblatt are thrilled to present an album launch concert for their newest album, Collisions. Collisions: A Concept Album allows a deeper look into the fleeting moments of our daily lives, from the stranger on the train to the sizzling sound of sausages to the celestial beings above us. Told through many different voices, Collisions explores the boundaries of near-misses and perfect explosions through a small vocal and musical ensemble. Produced by Jillian Michelle Smith, with music by Elspeth Collard and lyrics by Sam Rosenblatt, this concert gives the audience a sneak peek into the world of Collisions prior to its digital release.

Collisions: The Launch will feature RJ Christian (Macgyver the Musical cast album), Alia Cuadros-Contreras (Like the Wind), Cara Rose DiPietro (TikTok Star), Melaina Furgeson (Collisions original recording artist), Kalonjee Gallimore (A Beautiful Noise), Holly R. Gould (The Ferryman, Suffs), Bryson Olivo (Collisions original recording artist), Jillian Michelle Smith (Broadway Princess Party), and Matthew Harper Stevenson (Like the Wind), with music direction by Rai Arsa Artha. The band will also include Collard herself on percussion, Andrew Shield on guitar, and Tom Brody on bass.

Collisions: The Launch plays 54 Below (254 West 54th Street) on January 3rd at 9:30. There is a $29-$67.50 cover charge and $25 food and beverage minimum. Tickets and information are available at www.54Below.com. Tickets on the day of performance after 4:00 are only available by calling (646) 476-3551.
