NEW CD FROM MARCIA RAE – “ONE DAY AT A TIME”
Marcia Rae would have to be one of the hardest working Melbourne performers going around. With a gig schedule far busier than a lot of our well known established artists, Marcia is the consummate professional that knows what her audiences want to hear.
All the same, Marcia has finally released her latest CD “One Day At A Time”. What a trip down memory lane it is too with the music being a tribute to Patsy Cline and other legends . This is the material that Marcia performs faultlessly and what keeps her in work with up to 5 shows every week.
Marcia has been a big part of the Melbourne music scene for decades singing and entertaining loyal audiences who still crave that music from a bygone era. Her tributes to Patsy, Connie Francis and those Rock n Roll legends from yesteryear are always sold out shows for her wherever she performs.
“One Day At A Time” track list contains true evergreen numbers that will always stand the test of time. From the title track to South Of The Border, Harper Valley PTA, Walkin’ After Midnight amongst others, Marcia has very respectfully interpreted these gems in her own popular style.
Recording and audio production was by another well known “Melbournian” & Rock n Roll identity – Stan Azzopardi at his home studios. A studio that seems to be producing a lot of work these days.
“One Day At A Time” is dedicated to Marcia’s long time partner Norman James who passed away earlier in 2013 and was an integral part of her life and career. Norman himself was a regular performer at Marcia’s gigs who would warm up the crowds then play a role in her show.
The CD is my featured release in this weeks Melbourne Observer newspaper - Country Crossroads column 13 Nov.
