what the critics are saying

“She sings her heart out - and melts yours!”
–New York Daily News

“In a few short years, this talented and beautiful young woman has effortlessly made the transition to 'Big City Star.'”

“Laura Osnes is a bright new bowl of cherries on the cabaret world's fancy table.”
–Village Voice

“(FAVORITE 2012 MOMENTS) Seeing Laura Osnes really come into her own as a solo concert performer, first in her lighthearted, eclectic evening at the Cafe Carlyle and more recently with her sophisticated powerhouse performance of Maury Yeston's December Songs at 54 Below. The latter had me weeping in public... on a Wednesday.”


Laura Osnes
IF I TELL YOU - Songs of Maury Yeston

Broadway’s newest star, Laura Osnes -- Tony-nominated for her leading role in Bonnie and Clyde and currently starring in the title role of Rodgers & Hammerstein's Cinderella -- takes on the work of one of the Great White Way's most celebrated composer-lyricists. IF I TELL YOU - SONGS OF MAURY YESTON is the first solo album devoted to songs by the Tony-winning composer of Nine: The Musical, Grand Hotel, Titanic and Death Takes a Holiday. Yeston waited nearly thirty years before allowing a solo disc devoted to his work, but he found the perfect interpreter in Osnes, with her crystalline soprano, her delicate yet devastating way with a lyric, and her youthful effervescence and intensity. Drawn from Osnes's sold-out performances at 54 Below in November of 2012, IF I TELL YOU - SONGS OF MAURY YESTON includes a generous selection of Yeston's musical theatre songs (including several handpicked for this album and receiving their first recording here), as well his ravishing December Songs. Following the 54 Below dates, a writer for hailed Osnes's “sophisticated powerhouse performance that had me weeping in public.” Now that memorable performance is lovingly preserved in a new studio recording.
