Goodbye Girl Friday Says Hello To Philly

July 14, 2006 (PRLEAP.COM) Entertainment News
Goodbye Girl Friday will play World Café Live in Philadelphia on Friday, August 4 at 7:00PM, playing songs from their latest release Silver or Gold and debuting tunes from their upcoming CD.

Goodbye Girl Friday is David Sherman, keyboardist, lead vocalist, and songwriter. For the show at World Café’ Live, he will be joined by Dan Grennes on bass, Glenn Robertson on drums, and Chris Tarrow on pedal steel. Currently, Goodbye Girl Friday is finishing up a new CD co-produced by Sherman and Tarrow, engineered by Matt Shane (Rosanne Cash, Shawn Colvin) and mastered by Fred Kevorkian (Ryan Adams, The White Stripes, Dave Matthews Band).

The performance at World Café Live will be a homecoming of sorts for Sherman, whose father was a late night jazz DJ on WHAT in the late 50’s and early 60’s. Influenced by Philly stars Todd Rundgren and Daryl Hall, among others, Sherman’s songwriting has won praise from many critics, including All Music Guide’s Alex Henderson, who calls Silver or Gold “…a solid effort that shows a strong sense of pop/rock craftsmanship.” Performing Songwriter magazine included Goodbye Girl Friday on their Editors Choice Compilation #12, noting that Sherman’s “memorable melodies” were one of his biggest strengths.
