With the success of his single and video “Rainy Night in Georgia”” from the new album, Lonely Town, Lonely Street, Frank Shiner’s return to The Cutting Room is an event not to be missed.

His last performance here drew a sold-out crowd, resulting in a slew of strong reviews and a guest appearance by Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Gene Cornish of The Rascals who joined Frank and the band on stage for “How Can I Be Sure” and “Good Lovin”. Backed by an all-star band including Guitarist Sherrod Barnes (Whitney Houston, Roberta Flack, Earth, Wind & Fire), Keyboardist Chris Coogan (Bette Midler, Larry Coryell, Ronnie Spector), Bassist David Cutler (Iggy Azalea, SZA), Saxophonist Jay Rodriquez (Michael Kiwanuka, Prince, Patti Labelle), and Drummer Dan Weiner (house drummer for NBC's America's Got Talent, Andrea Bocelli), the October 21st show follows up a number of successful dates including World Cafe Live in Philadelphia, The Ridgefield Playhouse, and the opening of The Chappaqua Performing Arts Center which resulted in a resounding standing ovation by the 400 people in attendance. In reviewing Shiner’s recent performance at World Café Live in Philadelphia, writer Alan Foster of Entertaining-Options.com said “Frank Shiner has a classic voice that blazed with the swoon-worthy soul of a master. Other artists might cover songs written by legends such as Tony Joe White, Van Morrison, Amy Winehouse, Randy Newman, Daryl Hall and John Oates, but when Frank sings them, it sounds like these classic tracks were tailor-made for his golden ember vocals. When he sings, it comes from a place of love.”

The Huffington Post raved, “Shiner’s style encompasses blues, a touch of jazz and healthy dollops of R&B. He takes all three influences, mashes them up in a musical mixing bowl and then frappes it. The man can sing!” Noted Soul music historian and founder of soulmusic.com, David Nathan wrote "Lonely Town Lonely Street is a tour-de-force collection of twelve songs from the songbooks of legendary blue-eyed soul writers."

One of those “Aha” moments came when Tony Joe White endorsed Shiner’s version of the writer’s classic “Rainy Night in Georgia”, now celebrating its 50th Anniversary. The song and video have become the singer’s biggest hit to date. Shiner's first album, The Real Me, was named Best CD By A Male Artist by the LA Music Critic Awards and included two Top 5 AC hits.

The new album, Lonely Town, Lonely Street was recently nominated for three 2017 LA Music Critic Awards including Best Single (Male) for Rainy Night.
