Springsteen on Broadway is the recent album of music and stories by Bruce Springsteen of Local 47 (Los Angeles, CA) and Local 399 (Asbury Park, NJ), and the soundtrack of the Netflix film of the same name. The album is the complete live performance of the show.

Based on his worldwide best-selling autobiography Born to Run, Springsteen on Broadway is a unique evening with Bruce, his guitar, a piano, and his very personal stories. On the soundtrack album, each of these stories appears as its own track, labeled as an “introduction” to the song it precedes. In addition, the show features a special appearance by Patti Scialfa of Local 802 (New York City), a member of the E Street Band and Springsteen’s wife.

Bruce Springsteen’s sold-out series of performances of his one-man show opened October 12, 2017. The show was extended three times after its initial eight-week run, and ran on Broadway at The Walter Kerr Theatre through December 15, 2018.

Bruce Springsteen: Western Stars

Bruce Springsteen’s first studio album in five years takes his music to a new place, drawing inspiration in part from the Southern California pop records of the late ’60s and early ’70s. The 13 tracks encompass a range of American themes, of highways and desert spaces, of isolation and community, and the permanence of home and hope.

A member of Locals 47 (Los Angeles, CA) and 399 (Asbury Park, NJ), Springsteen says, “This record is a return to my solo recordings, featuring character-driven songs and sweeping, cinematic orchestral arrangements.” Ron Aniello of Local 47 is co-producer with Springsteen and plays bass and keyboard.

The album includes more than 20 musicians, including original E Street Band keyboard player David Sancious of Local 399, organist Charlie Giordano of Local 802 (New York City), and multi-instrumentalist Jon Brion of Local 47. Springsteen’s wife and E Street bandmate Patti Scialfa of Local 802 provides vocals.

Berklee to Restore Power Station Recording Studio

Berklee College of Music has announced it will take over Avatar Studios in Manhattan and rename it Power Station at BerkleeNYC, in a nod to the venue’s previous name and history as a former power plant. The school plans to update the 33,000-square-foot space to the tune of $20 million. Power Station will continue to operate to be a commercial recording studio, plus Berklee will add rehearsal space, practice rooms, and classrooms. Berklee students will be able to do internships and get training at the studio. Everyone from David Bowie to Bon Jovi of Local 204-373 (New Brunswick, NJ) to Bruce Springsteen of Locals 399 (Asbury Park, NJ) and 47 (Los Angeles, CA) have recorded at Power Station studios.
