Monday night we visited the Empire Hotel Rooftop Lounge to unwind and enjoy the entertaining sounds of the Stephane Wrembel Trio. 

Does that name sound familiar? Well, it should! Stephane Wrembel scored the theme to Woody Allen's 2012 Academy Award winning film "Midnight In Paris" and also composed the soundtrack to Woody Allen's 2008 smash hit "Vicky Cristina Barcelona."

Wrembel is currently based in Brooklyn, but learned his craft among the Gypsies at campsites in the French countryside of Fontainbleau. His melodies paint us a picture so full of emotion that it allows you to escape from reality and imagine. When you close your eyes and listen, you will envision his story so clearly that no song lyrics are necessary, just the voice of his guitar. 

In one song, he gave us an intriguing tune where you could imagine traveling or exploring an unknown place and then in another tune, he quickly took us away and fled us down cobble stone streets where we were introduced to a romantic Spanish inspired theme, perhaps fitting for a love scene? Well… that was the story we got. We dare you to try- download his new record, Origins - close you eyes and see where his melody takes you!

The interesting thing about a Wrembel composition is that it is not for any particular genre. If you love good music, you will love Stephane Wrembel. He is undoubtedly one of the most original guitar voices in contemporary music.

Stephane Wrembel Trio is about to take a brief tour, so if you don't live in New York - we strongly suggest you take advantage and check him out when they visit a city near you! Please visit here to view a full list of upcoming performances.
