The long-awaited follow-up to Chagall's popular and critically acclaimed 2004 indie release 'Soundlight,' the 10 track 'Invitation' set breaks free from the iTunes-inspired, singles oriented world, evolving as a fully realized 'love play' inspired by a wonderful romantic renaissance in Chagall's own life.
Even before its official release, 'Invitation'-whose richly textured songs blend a modern day Antonio Carlos Jobim sensibility with accessible 'McCartneyesque' melodies-was featured in the Robb Report's 21st Annual Best of the Best issue 2009. Many of the tracks on the album lend themselves brilliantly for licensing to TV, film and commercial opportunities.
Co-produced by Mikal Blue, who produced Colbie Caillat's Double Platinum Debut Album 'CoCo' and has also helmed projects for Five For Fighting, Augustana and OneRepublic, 'Invitation' spotlights a unique songwriting collaboration between Keith Chagall and Oscar and Tony Award winning composer Al Kasha and features dynamic performances by a wide range of top session and touring musicians:
bassist Abe Laboriel (Michael Jackson, George Benson, Miles Davis), drummer Abe Laboriel, Jr. (Paul McCartney), trumpeter Lee Thornburg (Tower of Power, Rob Thomas) and percussionist Rafael Padilla (Enrique Iglesias, Celine Dion). The collection was engineered by Grammy Award Winner Chris Brooke and features arrangements by Andrew Williams (nephew of Andy Williams), who also plays slide guitar on the Beach Boys-flavored 'Summer of My Life.'
In addition to nationwide airplay, Chagall's heartfelt songs, versatile musicianship and onstage charisma have earned vast critical acclaim, national and international television appearances and a growing live audience.
In addition to playing the lucrative corporate circuit, mixing originals and familiar pop songs for events put on by The Beverly Hills Hotel, The Four Seasons and Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, the singer has performed everywhere from South Beach, FL and San Francisco's Museum of Modern Art to L.A. hotspots like the House of Blues, Cafe' Del Rey, Santa Monica College and The Viper Room.
