Hello & Welcome!

Friends,

As I mentioned the last time I edited this page, I was going to be recording the first half of my new album, My Own Particular Life, at the end of April. I cancelled the session because of the LA lockdown, but the album is progressing. The composers are my co-producer Eddie Arkin, and my other treasured co-writers Russell Ferrante, Shelly Berg, and Dave Grusin. I have all the lyrics written, have done some vocal pre-recording here in Rochester—including background harmonies and talking—and hope to assemble the much-missed musicians in LA for a remote session in early 2021. Our drummer, Mike Shapiro, now lives in Manila and is recording from there.

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 have begun 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!

I hope you are well and safe, and doing what keeps you sane in this weird time. 

All the best,
