Daniel Isengart is a New York-based cabaret singer raised in Paris and Munich whose career has established him on both sides of the Atlantic. His repertory cuts across more than a hundred years of popular song, encompassing everything from waltzes dating back to the 19th century to re-interpretations of contemporary rock songs. Isengart has cultivated a wide spectrum of fans in New York (as well as in Cologne and Vienna), from gay-oriented clubs in Greenwich Village to such upscale Upper East Side venues as the Cafe Sabarsky at the Neue Galerie on Fifth Avenue. At the 2004 Museum Mile Festival in New York, he delighted an audience of several hundred people, ranging in ages from their teens to their eighties with a program that encompassed renditions of German songs in his own translations, as well as Viennese and Parisian standards. His debut recording is intended for release in 2004. And should anyone ever start to make movies out of Alan Furst's late- '30s to early- '40s European-set spy dramas, Isengart should be first in line for a background role as an entertainer.
