Alicia Witt Live from the Red Room
May 2 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm EDT
Tune in to birnCORE on Thursday, May 2 at 8:00 p.m. for a broadcast of the live performance by singer, writer, and actress Alicia Witt from the Red Room at Cafe 939.
Years before kicking off her career as an indie-pop songwriter, 7-year-old Alicia Witt took her first classical piano lesson. She landed her debut movie role that same year, appearing in David Lynch’s science fiction epic Dune. Decades later, Witt has built both passions into a thriving business, balancing an acclaimed string of movie, television, and stage appearances with solo records such as last year’s 15,000 Days.
Her fourth release as an independent songwriter, 15,000 Days is a sweeping, big-hearted record, its songs rooted in modern arrangements and timeless melodies. Witt wrote the material during a busy period that found her starring in the television series Nashville, stealing the spotlight with an appearance on The Walking Dead, and playing shows—including a performance on the Grand Ole Opry—in the wake of her previous album, Revisionary History. She had recorded Revisionary History with producer, songwriter, and fellow piano-pounder Ben Folds, resulting in a collection of vintage-inspired songs that looked to the past for inspiration.
