Dave Nachmanoff in Altadena Jan. 27

 Award-winning singer-songwriter and
guitarist Dave Nachmanoff will perform at The Coffee Gallery Backstage
in Altadena, California on Sunday, January 27, 2013 at 3 PM. Tickets
are $15. He will perform songs from his new critically acclaimed CD
"Step Up", plus fan favorites.

Singer-songwriter Dave Nachmanoff has toured across the United States
and the world for over 15 years, both on his own and as Al Stewart's
("Year of the Cat") opening act, verbal sparring partner and lead
guitarist. In appearances from the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC to
the Royal Albert Hall in London, Dave has shared his songs and
stories. As a side player (guitar, piano, bass, accordion and more)
he’s worked with Stewart on a regular basis as well as many others at
hundreds of venues as far ranging as The Bottom Line, Glastonbury
Festival, and the Edmonton Folk Festival.

A California based performer with nine albums under his belt, Dave
Nachmanoff is known for sophisticated songwriting, clean guitar
playing, rich and textured instrumentation, top-notch singing, and
most importantly, an energetic show. He's been described as having "an
acoustic style that's somewhere between the easygoing charm of Arlo
Guthrie and the raw energy of Bruce Springsteen”. He comes to The
Coffee Gallery Backstage directly from two nights opening for and
performing  with Al Stewart at McCabe's in Santa Monica. Both of the
McCabe's shows are now sold out, so fans in the greater Los Angeles
area have another opportunity to hear Dave at the Coffee Gallery

"Step Up" is Dave's latest release. It was produced by Ronan Chris
Murphy (King Crimson, Steve Morse), and features musicians Bob Malone
(John Fogerty), Ian Sheridan (Jason Mraz) and Victor Bisetti (Los
Lobos), and vocalists Al Stewart, Rosemary Butler (Jackson Browne and
James Taylor), John Wicks of powerpop band The Records, and Liz
Bligan. He’s got nine albums in all, including his first, Candy
Shower, released in 1997.  He's sold over 15,000 recordings, which can
be found at Amazon, iTunes, CDBaby and many other outlets.

Nationwide independent music consortium Just Plain Folks honored Dave
with the 2001 Songwriter of the Year award.  Recently, he has been
recognized in three songwriting contests - the USA Songwriting
Competition, the International Acoustic Music Awards, and the Great
American Song Contest. Sing Out! Magazine has praised his “…
heartfelt, inspired songwriting … with a delivery both biting and
