Ryan and I have released demos of Cut the Strings and How to Get Somewhere, starring the voice talent of the amazing Rachel Carreras. Check them out:
Ryan and I are writing a brand-new show called BEFORE AND AFTER! We just recorded this demo with Rachel Carreras. She's totally amazing but don't take my word for it. Take a listen!
Joseph Trefler and I recently recorded a demo of a song called "Take Off." It's from our new (still untitled) musical about a young man who makes the bold decision to escape his life by amassing airline frequent-flyer points, getting on an airplane, and never coming down.
The demos features stellar vocals by Sean Doherty, Chris Peters on guitar, and Jay Taylor on Bass. Produced by Jay Taylor and Joseph Trefler.
The wonderful Scott McCreary performed "Afraid" from Gay Card at the CONTEMPORARY WRITERS’ CIRCLE: FIFTH ANNIVERSARY CONCERT. Check out the video!
I'm so stoked to let everyone know that GAY CARD is coming to the North Raleigh Arts and Creative Theatre in June 2019! Ryan and I can't wait to see how they bring it to life!
Ryan and I were honored to be chosen as one of three finalists for The John Wallowitch Award. Here is a bit about the award:
John Wallowitch and Dottie Burman were beloved songwriters in the cabaret community. When Dottie Burman passed away, her estate bequeathed $5,000 dollars to MAC to set up a songwriting competition in her name that would award a cash prize to songwriters/composers over the age of 40 who have not yet received recognition for their writing talents. The MAC Board passed a motion to create a matching award in John Wallowitch’s name to honor songwriters under 40. Songwriters’ submissions are accepted in the fall, and finalists are chosen by a panel of judges. The final decision is made by a celebrity judge from the world of cabaret.
Ryan and I are pleased to announce that a selection of our sheet music is now available at ContemporaryMusicalTheatre.com.

It was a nail biter at Soundbites 4.0, but in the end, Sarah Smithton took home best actress for her role of Jenny in A Most Average Musical. Bob, Talia, and I could not have been prouder!
