In January 2018, Josh Call told me that people who get organ transplants sometimes start to like the same foods as the people whose organs they get. Fast forward a year and a half, and we have WILDHEART, an action adventure musical about a twelve year old heart transplant recipient whose heart’s former owner tells her she has superpowers. It’s a story about growing up, disability, facing uncertainty, and learning how to need people.
Back in Fall 2017, Pace University did a production of Lysistrata, and I wrote the music and lyrics for it. It was a very bizarre futuristic adaptation (it took place in the year 2069), and we put it up at 3LD. I was also in it and music directed it and kept writing songs pretty much up until tech. I didn’t sleep for months. Here’s the songs!
I also do work as an arranger/orchestrator/copyist. I did a really fun swing arrangement for Jay Armstrong Johnson’sI PUT A SPELL ON YOU: The Return of the Sanderson Sisters, check it out.
I am of course, more than happy to talk details and logistics about arranging work. Drop me a line 🙂
