Great Britain: The Sum of Our Parts

With the up coming premiere of THE PASS in London at The Playground Theatre, and work at KMPR, my life is pretty full and time has become a bit precious. However today as I look back at my time in London and all the amazing people I have known and worked with over the yearsContinue reading “Great Britain: The Sum of Our Parts”

THE PASS LONDON 2018

At the end of 2017 I was busy wrapping up a hundred details, tying loose ends as if they were bows on packages, ensuring everything was tidy and pristine. Now 2018 has come and a whole new year lies ahead, a wide-open expanse of time like a prairie covered in snow–it’s beautiful, exciting and scary.Continue reading “THE PASS LONDON 2018”

Racing Through The Snow

Winter is often seen as down-time, a season to lie low and rejuvenate while waiting for warm weather to return. But as the cold comes and the year turns, I am feeling invigorated and living for new challenges. One thing I’m concentrating on is the promotion of my one-woman musical production THE PASS. As 2018Continue reading “Racing Through The Snow”

Pinpointing My Dream

After basking in the afterglow of my first performance of THE PASS, my one woman show including original songs, I now say: What’s Next? A dream is a pure thing, beautiful and nebulous as a cloud, filled with light. But to successfully mount a show a dream is unfortunately not enough. I have a vision;Continue reading “Pinpointing My Dream”

Reigning it in: Staging a Production

As a musical performer I’ve been told I often use sweeping and dramatic gestures and move about a lot on stage. What I’m learning now is that being a singer with a band is a lot different than doing a one-woman show. As I rehearse my show THE PASS it’s been brought to my attentionContinue reading “Reigning it in: Staging a Production”

BE YOURSELF – INDIVIDUALISM IS THE NEW TREND

For several decades now, since the highly individualistic 60’s, people seem to have gravitated more to group dynamics than to self-expression. Until recently that is. With the election of Trump, and with corporate politics being constantly questioned, people are again realizing the value of forming their own opinions, instead of having their ideas dictated toContinue reading “BE YOURSELF – INDIVIDUALISM IS THE NEW TREND”

My Own Barber Pole

As I continue to prepare for my one-woman show, THE PASS, in which I tell stories about my life & career, I have been thinking of my past successes. This has led me to ponder the nature of success in general. Some people experience success as one straight line like a rocket vaulting into theContinue reading “My Own Barber Pole”

Larga Vida el Paso – Meet Marta Sanchez

After months of searching, I am happy to say I have found a great pianist Marta Sanchez to help me launch my show THE PASS. Marta is from Madrid, Spain and is currently living in Brooklyn.  She has an impressive background with degrees in both classical and jazz composition. Marta has toured the US, Europe, SouthContinue reading “Larga Vida el Paso – Meet Marta Sanchez”

Stop Creating Limitations

For whatever reason I’ve had this stigma about raising money online for my projects–like I’ve had some success: publishing deals, hit records. It makes me feel like I’m starting from scratch. Then I look and see all the amazing artists who are doing crowdfunding and I realize I have been limiting myself by judging myself.Continue reading “Stop Creating Limitations”

To Weave a Web of Song

Spiders get a bad rap. Consider their fascinating origin according to Greek mythology: Arachne, a talented but mortal weaver, challenged the goddess Athena to a weaving contest. When Athena, who rules over crafts as well as wisdom, won the content hands-down she decided to punish Arachne by turning her into nature’s first spider. So spidersContinue reading “To Weave a Web of Song”
