Capathia Jenkins, who received rave reviews for her show-stopping performance in the 2006 Broadway hit "Martin Short: Fame Becomes Me," and award-winning composer/performer Louis Rosen are delighted to announce the launch of their debut CD, CAPATHIA JENKINS AND LOUIS ROSEN: SOUTH SIDE STORIES. Inspired by Rosen’s experiences growing up on the south side of Chicago, SOUTH SIDE STORIES is a moving collection of songs about youth, coming-of-age, and experience.

CAPATHIA JENKINS AND LOUIS ROSEN: SOUTH SIDE STORIES received critical acclaim during its world premiere at the Steppenwolf Theater in December 2005. Hedy Weiss of The Chicago Sun-Times declared it “magical…(a) nostalgic, romantic, emotionally charged song cycle.” Kerry Reid of the Chicago Tribune called the performance “a fine and sometimes somber portrait of heartbreak and survival, joy and its absence, and love that endures even when the objects of that love are long vanished.”

The release of CAPATHIA JENKINS AND LOUIS ROSEN: SOUTH SIDE STORIES is also being celebrated with a three-show engagement at The Public Theater''s Joe''s Pub, October 29th, November 5th and 12th. Visit https://www.tradebit.com for more information.

The success of their debut led to repeat performances at celebrated venues in New York and throughout the country, including Birdland and the 92nd Street Y in Manhattan, The Old Stone House in Brooklyn, and the legendary Steppenwolf Theater in Chicago.

In June of 2006, Capathia and Louis appeared in concert at the prestigious Great Hall of Cooper Union with special guest vocalist, Alton Fitzgerald White. Together they offered yet another world-premiere, Louis'' fourteen-song DREAM SUITE: SONGS IN JAZZ AND BLUES, on poems by Langston Hughes.
