If Beyonce can have a surprise record release, so can Miz Mora: Gia Mora Sings Charlie Barnett dropped over the weekend! Stream all 11 tracks for FREE through the Modern Songbook Records website.
“Since we’re an independent label with an independent spirit, we couldn’t think of a better weekend to share this new music with the world,” Modern Songbook said in an email sent to fans on July 3rd.
SEE IT LIVE! Gia and Charlie perform live in Los Angeles on Friday, July 10 at Room 5 at 7 P.M. Every ticket gets a free copy of the album! Room 5 is located at 143 N. La Brea Avenue, just south of Beverly.
Mora welcomes several special guests to the performance including Virginia Williams (Fairly Legal, Criminal Minds), Robi Banerji (engineer for Madonna and the Rolling Stones), and Dino Serra (Johnny Blade’s Doom Crew). More guests will be announced soon.
Broadway World raves about Mora: “Delightful! She more than proved her versatility by comfortably delivering emotionally on-point vocals with technical precision.” “Captivating!” exclaims The District Insider. “Gia sauntered through a cosmic vortex of jazzy tunes and witty lyrics. Powerhouse vocals–impressive!” Cabaret Scenes Magazine calls her “a gifted singer and raconteuse. Her song interpretations are as fascinating and individual as her take on modern life.”
