A gifted songwriter whose lyrics paint sometimes witty, often poignant portraits of characters unaware of how their lives have gone wrong, Freedy Johnston seemingly appeared out of nowhere in the early '90s and quickly established himself as one of the most acclaimed new singer/songwriters of the day.
"Midwestern and spectacularly unflashy, apparently born with a receding hairline, the Kansas-born, Hoboken-launched singer-songwriter won critics' hearts and some fame in the early 1990s with intensely crafted songs about adulthood's curveballs: rebound romances, gambling losses, the drudgery of doing time for crimes of the heart." (Los Angeles Times) With his latest release, Rain on the City, "Johnston once again proves himself a master of subtle songcraft" and "an observant and tuneful chronicler of odd characters (one must presume including himself), small lives and lost souls with big feelings, struggling to get by in flyover country and cities alike." (Pitchfork) Don't miss him for this intimate performance on 92YTribeca's Mainstage.
Pop songbird Shira, a rising star in her native Israel and the daughter of beloved Israeli songwriter Miki Garvrielov, plays a special opening set.
