To Feinstein's/
54 Below

“Maté’s songs are a unique and thrilling combination of musical styles. He makes dazzingly audacious choices in his music and lyrics that are always surprising yet feel inevitable.” -William Finn

Canadian-born songwriter Daniel Maté, winner of the Kleban Prize for Lyrics, returns to Feinstein’s/54 Below for the first time since 2013. After seven eventful years away from NYC—marriage, divorce, rebound drama, psychedelic self-help, co-authoring a book, and, most recently, incarceration (and COVID) in a Mexican detention center—Daniel’s back with stories to tell and memories to sort through. With his signature blend of musical versatility, lyrical swordsmanship, off-the-wall humor, psychological insight and emotional complexity, and with the help of some very special guests (TBA), Daniel will reflect on his mishaps and adventures through original theatre songs new and old. The show will include delightfully diverse material from The Longing And The Short Of It (ASCAP Cole Porter Award for Excellence in Music and Lyrics), Middle School Mysteries, Hansel & Gretl & Heidi & Günter, as well as works-in-progress such as Daniel’s adaptation of the Russell Banks novel The Sweet Hereafter and the original “autobiomagical” musical Adam Claims His Baggage. Expect an evening filled with warmth, wit, a little whining, and—fingers crossed—some wisdom.
