Hope this finds you well and safe!
My new album, My Own Particular Life, will be released on September 24th. The composers are my co-producer Eddie Arkin, and my other treasured co-writers Russell Ferrante, Shelly Berg, and Dave Grusin. On the album’s page you’ll find the lyrics, and notes about the songs and the process of creating this project, largely during the pandemic.
Most of the musicians recorded in LA, but our drummer Michael Shapiro laid his tracks down from his studio in Quezon City, The Philippines; Shelly’s trio recorded in Miami, and Dave Grusin did his piano part in Santa Fe. Full credits are on the page too. I did my lead and background parts here in Rochester, NY.
My last album, Math Camp, is available in full here.
The musical I’ve been working on with composer Nan Schwartz in LA and show creator Kat de Blois, in Paris, is still in progress. Meanwhile, Nan and I are in the midst of doing a project of our own—a musical theatre version of The Grammarians, by Cathleen Schine. The book was chosen as one of 100 notable reads of 2019 by the New York Times. Nan and I are excited to be teaming up with Cathleen on this!
All the best,
