So it’s been a couple of weeks since my last entry. As you know I finished the draft I wrote and passed that on to a writer who has been siting with it and reading it over. We had a meeting last night and he shared many of his notes with me- and there were many! I will say I agreed with just about everything he had to say which is good that we are on the same page. (Ha- get it, same page!). But the truth is I know now that the show is just beginning to be created. The original idea I had will still be there but songs will leave, new songs will be created, characters will be developed. It’s all part of the process, I know. We will just have to wait….and see.
On a fun note, I am still recording demos so keep checking the music page. This Wednesday, Kimberly Suskind is coming to record several songs including SOAR which is one of my favorites. I can’t wait to hear how it sounds with her wonderful voice. Kim is presently starring in John and Jen at the Eagle Theatre in Hammonton, NJ. I went to go see her perform last week and she was amazing. The Eagle theatre is South Jersey’s only Equity theatre. It is an amazing little theatre and I highly recommend a visit there if you want a fun night out.
And this past weekend I recorded two adorable and talented young boys, Max Ringold and Lyam David – Kilker. You can hear them on “Just Wanna Be” and “I Believe You.”
Oh – and I just re read my post from two weeks ago. In it I said that all the songs were finished being written. Ha! That’s so funny, and so naive of me to say! I actually just wrote another one a few days ago and am now guessing I’ll be writing at least ten more in the next few months. I can only imagine how many songs will have been written for this show when it’s all said and done. Anyone want to go for an over/under? My guess is 32.
