Maurice Tani

After a solid life as a working pro in large, touring dance bands, preceded by a long stint in the indie rock world with Flamin’ Groovies front man Roy Loney, Maurice Tani wanted to play his own music.  As a composer who liked songs with linear stories, plot lines, and character development, he landed on country music with a twist, what one writer called “Hillbilly Noir’: he put on a cowboy hat and began to write and play, as one headline put it, “Americana without limits.”

Maurice Tani marks the release of his seventh album, “The White Water”, a collection of six new originals and four reimagined selections from other writers as diverse as Robert Hunter & Jerry Garcia and Burt Bachrach & Hal David. Maurice’s May 13th performance at Freight & Salvage will be primarily acoustic, featuring material from his previous six albums and debuting new material from this latest release.

Freight & Salvage presents veteran singer-songwriter Maurice Tani on Saturday, May 30th at 8 pm at the Freight & Salvage Coffee House in Berkeley. Tani is known for his wry-to-romantic songwriting, agile guitar style and expressive singing.
