For singer-songwriter Se√°n Barna, Macri Park is more than those simple descriptors. His second album and Kill Rock Stars debut, An Evening at Macri Park, is his tribute to it's community, his scene, and a time in his life when it was the center of his world. A self-described "semi-professional" musician since he was 14, Barna played drums for Deaf West Theatre's Los Angeles production of Spring Awakening and on the national Broadway tour for The Producers, but it took a trip to Berlin's Club Legarr√©, and it's English-speaking open mic, to find his own voice as a songwriter and performer. His new album is a collection of stories, vulnerable and openhearted, of his New York. In his words, "It's a character study of the bar itself. It's a safe space, but there's alcohol, drugs, sadness, and your own demons." Recorded in Rochester, Se√°n wrote late into the night as producer [producer!] and his kids slept. Moving fast, Macri Park became the center of a song cycle documenting giddiness, grief, history, and everything in-between. He enlisted friends, including Counting Crows' Adam Duritz and David Immergl√ľck, harpist and songwriter Mikaela Davis, Danielle Ponder, and Maria Taylor, to bring his world to life.
