Marcus Goldhaber - A concert to #BridgeTheGap between civilians & veterans
196 Allen St.
New York, NY, 10002
Doors 6:30 PM / Show 7:00 PM
This event is 21 and over
Noted recording artist MARCUS GOLDHABER aims to fortify the civilian-veteran relationship and broaden the national conversation about veterans with CARRY YOU ON (KMG/UNIVERSAL), a uniquely compelling collection of story-based songs created to open new windows into the everyday lives of veterans and their families, and #BridgeTheGap between civilians and military veterans through the power of music.
Known for his vivid songwriting and intimate approach to the American Songbook, Goldhaber charges beyond stars-and-stripes patriotism to achieve a greater conversation of nuance and individuality. With music as his vehicle to drive the conversation, Goldhaber blends a variety of styles and special narratives that summon the timeless sensibilities of classic singer-songwriters, from James Taylor to Marc Cohn to the Lumineers. All original lyrics were inspired by conversations Goldhaber has had with civilians, active-duty service members, veterans and their families during his journey.
A portion of ticket sales along with half of the proceeds from physical sales of CARRY YOU ON directly support Iraq Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA.org), a non-partisan, non-profit which similarly seeks to connect, unite and empower post-9/11 veterans, while strengthening the civilian-veteran bond. The album was entirely funded through a Kickstarter campaign that the marquee crowdfunding site declared a “Project We Love,” in raising nearly $70,000. As Joseph Brooks, President & COO of Liberty USO says, “it’s the start of a movement!”
"A big thanks to Marcus Goldhaber for his notable work to help bridge the divide between Service Members, veterans, and families and the broader American public. Marcus' steadfast commitment to this mission is an inspiration. … Keep it going, Marcus!"
―Major Dan McSweeney (US Marine Corps), President of the United War Veterans Council
“This is important. Sharing your story, and having a real storyteller offer it to the rest of the community in a way that maybe you as a soldier, a sailor or a Marine can’t, there’s real power in that. This community needs to know that they’re not living in isolation, and that there’s a broader country that stands behind them. And I think that Marcus’s story is empowering as a vehicle to do that.”
― Ilario Pantano (US Marine Veteran of Desert Storm & Iraq), Author & Senior Dir. of Community Services for The Institute for Veterans and Military Families
