Spotlight on Musical Theatre Composition: “Pay 2 Play”

I am proud to announce that I am the composer for a brand new musical, currently in the works, called¬†Pay2Play.¬†It’s a satire of¬†Philadelphia¬†politics. Funnyman Brian Kerrigan is the author of the book/lyrics and he’s also the show’s producer.¬†Writing the music to complement his hysterical, witty, amazing script is¬†entirely too much fun.

We’ll be casting 5 roles for a web-based mini filmed version of the musical [casting early in June, shooting in August]. Please stay tuned for more updates on the project!

  • For more information about auditions and the web-based mini musical, check out our listing on Backstage.com

  • To hear demo piano-vocal recordings of excerpts of songs from the show, check out VoiceMakeDown’s Soundcloud page¬†(the official SoundCloud site for our show’s production company)

PRC @Cedar Street Studios & More piano tracking @Third Story Recording ‚ôę

Monday night, at¬†Cedar Street Studios¬†we hosted the monthly PRC (Philadelphia Recording Community) meeting. We had a great turnout and spread the word about Box of Stars, an organization that spreads mental health awareness (and reduces stigma) through music. PRC is a fantastic way to participate in and network with people/studios operating in the greater Philadelphia area, and it’s a genuinely nice and very interesting group. And Box of Stars is a fantastic organization in which I hope all of my readers opt to play a part.

20130724-200451.jpg

 

This evening, I tracked additional piano for Diandra Gore at Third Story Recording. We recorded parts for an original song. It’s a fun, fast, and funky track.

 

It is such a pleasure and a thrill to be interning at these two fine Philly studios!

 

Stay tuned for more updates on my upcoming EP; bass/guitar/drum tracking are happening next week!
