Mom, New Song & Millions of Dollars

Yesterday I had a chat with my “publisher” (my contact) at BMG. They as of this day administer my Marsa Music catalog. We spoke about the CBS Sunday Morning News piece a few weeks ago about Primary Wave the trends in music publishing and she gave me some insider insight about the president of thatContinue reading “Mom, New Song & Millions of Dollars”

If Gentleman Jack Could Sing

Cheers to all women who follow the beat of their own drum. Especially when it was not so easy. Like back in 1832. Now 190 years later, we celebrate 2022 March Women’s History Month and salute the women who moved mountains. For themselves and for all women. I recently watched Gentleman Jack on HBOMax andContinue reading “If Gentleman Jack Could Sing”

Musicians Make Great Leaders

Let me quantify this title above. Musicians have empathy and compassion. They feel, they put mind, body, hands, skills to task, and more often than not, they learn to play music composed by others, so they carry out an intention. Perhaps from another time.

Sidney Poitier Passing

There have been so many deaths recently in Hollywood, this one makes me very sad. I remember him as a young girl having such an elegant presence. He was on screen with Rod Steiger in the film In the Heat of the Night. We were living in Tucson and in our last home before movingContinue reading “Sidney Poitier Passing”

Celeste Martin: Holiday Generosity at its Best

In The Pass Musical, I speak about my guardian angel, Celeste Martin. She owned the carriage house building in the West Village from 1810 that I live in. She passed on December 13, 2018. I have a vignette in my show, about the apartment, aptly titled # 5 My West Village Apartment, and the firstContinue reading “Celeste Martin: Holiday Generosity at its Best”

My Time Spent is My Life Spent

Had a music/song rehearsal with Tracy Stark yesterday. 2.5 hours of singing, finding tempos, trying new things, adding her voice to a few spots, and it was so good to dive back in. I love singing. Though I have had highs & lows in my career, as many artists do, working on The Pass MusicalContinue reading “My Time Spent is My Life Spent”
