After keeping a running list of songs he loves to sing and songs he has wanted to record for years, Brian finally decided to go into the recording studio about one year ago. As he consulted his list and began collecting the sheet music, he came across even more songs he wanted to record. He’s glad he did, because some of those last-minute choices ended up on the recording.

In addition to songs from the new CD, you’ll hear songs from his first CD, Found Treasures, as well as other songs he thinks you really ought to hear. Selections may include songs by Marvin Hamlisch, Diane Warren, Johnny Mercer, Rodgers & Hammerstein, Pasek & Paul, Shaiman & Wittman, William Finn, Frank Loesser, and David Friedman.

“In his aptly titled ‘I Know More Now,’ Brian De Lorenzo shows that he does, indeed know more about beautiful singing, more about matters of the heart, and more about life, and we are the lucky recipients of this knowledge channeled through his artistry. In this collection of cabaret and theater standards, some lesser-known gems, some comedy songs, and (my favorite part) three of my songs, elegantly accompanied by Doug Hammer, Brian consistently offers beautiful, simple readings that allow the songs to shine through. – Composer, Songwriter, & Author David Friedman

“Although the title of Brian De Lorenzo’s ‘Found Treasures’ refers to the songs it contains, the cabaret singer is one himself. Possessing a clear tenor which he uses with earnest emotional intensity, De Lorenzo sings with complete commitment.” – Max O. Preeo, Show Music

“Although I saw a few good tributes to Sinatra this year, nobody brought such fizzy joy to the centennial occasion as De Lorenzo. A consummate musician who makes you feel he’s having the time of his life every moment he’s on stage, which only adds to your enjoyment.” – Kevin Scott Hall, EDGE Media Network

“There are good shows and there are great shows, but once in a blue moon you’re at a cabaret and you know something extraordinary is going on.” – Beverly Creasey, Cabaret Scenes
