Description

Faithful on CD

"Breakfast on the table/shoelace untied/it's better in some other place/at least for tonight," whispers Chris Cubeta toward the end of Faithful, the follow-up to his 2003 debut Sugar Sky. It's a bittersweet reflection that captures both the poignancy and purpose of the singer/songwriter's many-colored vision. In Cubeta's universe, the heroes are the heartbroken vagabonds, the wistful winos and all the other overlooked beauty-seekers of his "crooked candy world." More than anything, Chris Cubeta is an intensely personal writer, whose songs offer listeners an unfiltered peak into his often-messy, always-wild universe. While his lyrics combine nuance-soaked imagery with a brash, incisive point-of-view, Cubeta's sound is equally eclectic, combining the wispy, sensitivity of the singer/songwriter with the unbridled thrill of rock and roll. Faithful is an artistic declaration, full of offbeat characters, ecstatic revelations and unfiltered emotion. It is the kind of record that unabashedly announces the arrival of a new and necessary young artist whose urgent and desperate approach to songwriting is all too rare in contemporary music. Cubeta's live show is bolstered by his high-octane band The Liars Club - Jeff Berner on guitars, Marc Capaldo on drums and John Passineau on bass. Each brings his own flair to a show that is a dynamic blend of passionate, guitar-infused energy and down-home, rootsy melancholy. Cubeta presides over every gig with the subtle and sure hand of a seasoned performer, deftly alternating between wowing the crowd with his guitar and telling the silhouetted stories of the unsung. Cubeta is an accomplished musician, who played nearly every instrument on Sugar Sky, as well as a skilled producer. A longtime resident of upstate New York, he moved to Brooklyn in 2005 and has already secured a number of prime slots at some of the city's most prestigious rooms - The Bitter End, The Pussycat Lounge, Trash and Pianos to name a few.
