Grammy winner and two-time Country Music Association award winning singer Raul Malo performs two shows in St. Louis on Friday, September 22, 2006, and Saturday, September 23, 2006, at 8:00 pm, at the acoustically perfect Sheldon Concert Hall. All tickets are $25 for each show. All seating is reserved.

Malo is the big-voiced former frontman for the '90s country band The Mavericks whose multicultural and multiple-genre treatment of songs is the future of American music. He's a tenor with a wide-ranging voice that is steeped in the country music tradition of his old band, but who also sings in fluent and fiery Spanish. Raul Malo can sing country, Latin, blues, jazz, pop, salsa, gospel--just about any way you want, and with aplomb. He is a master showman, at total ease before a crowd.

Raul Malo's new CD, "You're Only Lonely," on Sanctuary Records, was released on Tuesday, July 25. Besides one original, the upbeat Latin-tinged Jose Feliciano-reminiscent "For You", the other tunes are covers of some of Malo's favorite songs. Included are the 1970s title tune by Eagles collaborator J.D. Souther; two versions of Randy Newman's "Feels Like Home" (a solo version of this pop hit, and a duet with country diva Martina McBride); a show tune, Eddie Fisher's "Games That Lovers Play"; a slightly lighter version of Etta James' bottom-of-the-bucket blues grinder, "At Last"; Willie Nelson's country classic "Angel Flying Too Close to the Ground"; and Harry Nilsson's sweetly haunting hit "Remember." This combination of songs requires considerable versatility in vocal range and style, but Malo has that special voice to pull it off effortlessly.

"You're Only Lonely" has won early critical acclaim, including "People" magazine's four-star Critic's Choice rating. The Los Angeles Times said it was an album "dedicated to resurrecting the kind of romantic pop music that Frank Sinatra long personified. This is all about setting the mood for candlelight, champagne and a cozy evening with the one you loveľor wish to."
