I was an early champion of Steve Grand, back when his “All-American Boy” music video caused a sensation — and a lot of confusion as to who he was as an artist — and made him a lightning rod for adulation, criticism and thirst.

It hasn't been a boring six years.

The Library Is Open: Brian Falduto Previews Tracks From Forthcoming Debut Album STAGE TWO Comments (0)
IMG_9607*****_newFalduto is singin' the twos ...
 
Brian Falduto is best known as Billy aka Fancy Pants in the 2003 movie School of Rock. He came out as gay as a senior in college, but may have been the last to know, considering his character was famous for adoring Liza and uttering the words “You're tacky and I hate you,” lines he delivered so credibly he became known as the gay kid from School of Rock.
 
 
Having that mantle placed on you in the fifth grade can be daunting, and it would seem Falduto has dealt with the fallout via therapy, 51Y3Y2xOeQL._SX401_BO1 204 203 200_ and in song — he has spent time working on music since his sole movie appearance, releasing an EP and, soon, his debut album, Stage Two.
 
In a casual teaser of the album Monday night at NYC's the Cutting Room, Falduto sang tracks from the new album, including his current single “Rainy Day.” Warmly received by the crowd, he also touched on his EP, did some covers, had two opening acts and allowed two of his backing singers to perform works (look up Elizabeth Wyld, she was amazing). On the therapy tip, he did two readings from a book he says inspired his album, The Velvet Rage: Overcoming the Pain of Growing Up Gay in a Straight Man's World by Alan Downs, Ph.D.
