Margo Seibert: 77th Street [CD]
77th Street features Margo Seibert’s inspired original songs that incorporate eclectic rock and folk influences, and reimagined theater and pop classics, both delivered with her nuanced vocal performances that have captivated critics and audiences.
“77th Street is an homage to the in-betweens of life,” says Margo. “Employment is fleeting for an artist. We search and wait for the next right fit. It was during one of these periods that I began to pay attention to the melodies and lyrics I had been squirreling away for years. I’m an actress, but I never entertained the idea that I could be a writer. Imposter syndrome loomed large. My friend Michael Croiter urged me to continue creating music. I wrestled to embrace all parts of me — artist, imposter, writer, a singer without formal training, a woman resistant to surrender, a tenacious self-improver, my fierce loyalty to music of the 70s, 80s, and 90s — and invited them out to play. I then took these elements and the location where inspiration hit, my first apartment on East 77th Street, and set out to explore this unappreciated time in our lives between now and the next thing. The times when the stories of our lives are written. This album is collection of songs that express the exhilaration of knowing anything is possible, the frustration of being stuck, the heartache of letting someone go, and all the rest of the beautiful in-betweens.”
