The CD is out! It’s amazing how these things happen. I had the big Birdland concert on the 9th. Full day of rehearsal that day then I raced over to Birdland for the sound check, then suddenly it’s 6:45 pm and the photographer has shown up and I’m not even dressed yet. The whole thing was a whirlwind, but I suppose that’s good because it didn’t allow me too much time to get nervous. The concert was amazing, if I do say so myself. If you weren’t there (and many of you were… sold out… thank you!), you can only imagine how great those performers sounded, but thanks to broadwayworld.com you can see some photos of the event here.
If you haven’t had a chance to pick up the album yet, I am happy to announce that it’s now available on iTunes! You can also order it at amazon or psclassics. And order it you should, because Derek Bishop did an amazing job designing that booklet, and there are some fun essays and a cute photo of my daughter. I figure if I sell enough of them to break even, then I’ll release another one. And that’s how this self-promotion thing goes.
So let’s see. Now that I’m blogging, what else can I tell you about? I’m working right now on gathering singers and musicians for my LA Concert on June 2nd at the El Portal Theatre. Watch here and I’ll announce who’s gonna come play with me on stage.
I think that’s enough talking about myself for one blog entry. I want to make sure that this blog is used for other things besides selling my CD and promoting my concerts. Though those things are really important to my career and my ability to get my work out into the world, I also want to be sure to give a little bit of space to talking about other things. So, I’m hoping to close every blog from now on with something that has caught my attention.
There is nothing quite like writers writing about writing, but if you’re a person who enjoys writing and thinking about writing and (like most of us) avoiding actually writing, you’ll find that you look to other writers for insight into how they manage it all. And that’s why this essay by playwright and director Craig Lucas really wowed me. Enjoy.
