Liam Forde, the New York-based singer and songwriter, will celebrate his debut album “Great to Be Here” with a special concert at Rockwood Music Hall. Forde’s cosmopolitan chamber pop blends a vintage vibe with contemporary influences like Jon Batiste, Lake Street Dive, and Ben Folds. Forde’s authentic points of view create something fresh while drawing from a decidedly 1960s soundscape that by turns encompasses the dry wit of Noël Coward, the infectious rhythms of Stevie Wonder, and the dramatic sweep of Michel Legrand. “Great to Be Here” is engineered by Grammy Award-nominee Geoff Countryman (Patti LaBelle, Wu-Tang Clan, Dr. Luke). In the Wall Street Journal, Will Friedwald raved “the boy wonder never fails to find precisely the right note.” Peter Marks in The Washington Post praised Liam’s “breakout performance.” Forde’s honors include the Bistro Award for “Performer on the Rise” and the Nightlife Award for “Outstanding Male Vocalist.”
