Premiere: Russ Lorenson Triumphantly Returns With “Raise The Roof,” a Jazz Anthem of Resilience

San Francisco’s beloved crooner, celebrated vocal artist, and lifelong devotee of The Great American Songbook is back! Following a harrowing journey through tonsil cancer that had fans holding their breath, Lorenson is back to grace the stage (or at least your playlists) with his latest single “Raise The Roof.” The song serves as a compelling preview to his upcoming live album, “Standard Time: Live in New York,” set for release this December 1st with a release party in NYC will take place at The Triad Theatre in Manhattan.

Lorenson’s take on Andrew Lippa’s classic composition brings a level of energy that feels like a direct challenge to the gloomy time he spent recovering from cancer and, the album is a big f— you to cancer.

Russ garnered inspiration from the following 2 quotes:

No great art has ever been made without the artist having known danger.

Rainer Maria Rilke

The essence of all beautiful art, all great art, is gratitude.

Friedrich Nietzsche

And he has this to say:  I‘m grateful that I once had the gift of song, and I am nothing if not grateful that I survived cancer.  This album is an expression of my gratitude for both of those things.”

Backed by an all-star lineup of instrumentalists, this track isn’t just a showcase for Lorenson’s vocals. Every bass pluck, guitar riff, and piano run is woven delicately into a rich tapestry of sound that allows the music to breathe, pulsating with a heartbeat of its own.

“Going through this journey, I’ve learned that the real music is in the silent moments, the spaces between notes, where we find strength we never knew we had.” – Russ Lorenson

What makes “Raise The Roof” more than just a banger of a jazz track is its emblematic significance. In the face of a cancer diagnosis that threatened to mute his voice forever, Lorenson uses this song to show that resilience and creativity can overcome even the most daunting of challenges. If music is a snapshot of the human spirit, then consider this Lorenson’s selfie—a moment of triumph captured in live technicolor.
