      That Which Ails the Broken Heart – An Anti-Valentine’s Day Cabaret

      Shayfer James is a rock noir singer-songwriter/performer, theater/film composer and multi-instrumentalist. His vibrantly moody and theatrical music is equally at home on a vaudeville stage as it is on playlists that feature Nick Cave, Fiona Apple, Amy Winehouse and Leonard Cohen. Shayfer moves unflinchingly from soulful uptempo rock to serene ballads. Known for his poetic, gothic-tinged lyrics, swaggering grooves, whiskey humor, and captivating, theatrical live performances, Shayfer is a powerhouse showman whether it be on large festival stages or in living room house concerts. Most recently, a musical Shayfer co-wrote with Sleep No More’s Kate Douglas premiered at The Met LiveArts 2019 season. The musical, called The Ninth Hour, is a 75 minute rock-operetta based on the epic poem Beowulf. Shayfer has performed for audiences all over the U.S. and internationally in London, Madrid, Iceland and Hong Kong. His most recent EP Hope and A Hand Grenade is available across all streaming platforms along with his previous two full length albums, two EPS and various singles. Performances by Shayfer at City Winery Philadelphia will be complemented by sideshow, burlesque, and cabaret by Envoute: Magic and Burlesque.
