Shoshana Bean Will Celebrate Release of SPECTRUM Album at Ace Theater!

On Saturday, February 24, Shoshana Bean will perform her album release show - Spectrum - at Ace Theater Downtown Los Angeles, with special guests Amber Riley and Haley Reinhart. Spectrum, Bean's fourth studio album (currently #1 on the Billboard Jazz Chart), is a fresh new take on the classic tradition of big band with arrangements by Grammy award-nominated arranger Alan Ferber. This concert will feature Bean along with an 18 piece big band performing a carefully-selected collection of standards, classics and modern favorites, while still including a few Bean-penned gems. Bean made her Broadway debut in the original cast of Hairspray before taking over for Idina Menzel as Elphaba in Wicked and has performed all over the world with artists such as Ariana Grande, Brian McKnight, Postmodern Jukebox (PMJ), David Foster and Michael Jackson.

Inspired largely by Frank Sinatra, Aretha Franklin, and Barbra Streisand, Spectrum promises to be Bean's most impressive project to date. Her three solo albums have topped the iTunes R&B and Blues charts in the US and UK: Superhero (2008), O'Farrell Street (2013) and Shadows To Light (2013), which debuted at #10 on Billboard's Blues Albums charts. She has amassed millions of views on YouTube, most recently her cover of Taylor Swift's "I Did Something Bad" garnered a frenzy of media attention, as well as earned high praise from Swift herself.

The concert is produced by the team behind Los Angeles' beloved "For The Record" series as part of new programming titled, "For The Record Presents." These concert presentations will highlight artists who have inspired For The Record's unique brand and have been involved with the show's development over the years. These artists are curated from a vibrant tapestry of independent artists who make up the city of Angels.

Indie Recording Artist Audra Mae will begin the evening by playing an opening set with songs from her newly released album. In addition to recording artist, Mae is a prolific songwriter who has written songs for Avicii, Celine Dion, David Guetta, Susan Boyle, Miranda Lambert, Kelly Clarkson, The Band Perry, Carrie Underwood and Little Big Town.

Doors open at 7pm and the concert begins at 8pm on Saturday, February 24th. The Theatre at Ace Hotel is located at 929 S Broadway.
