MUSIC

December 2017, Story Tavern, Burbank, CA

I am a trained singer, proficient in Broadway, Jazz, Irish, Rock, and other styles, as well as a composer, orchestrator, and arranger. My original music reveals my background in the classical music of ballet, piano, and opera along with Broadway and movie musicals, along with world music styles such as Irish music, Middle Eastern and North African dance, plus my interests in the mantras and rhythms of India.

ORIGINAL MUSIC

I have composed works for the stage, stand-alone songs, and songs for other, non-musical works, such as a novel and a screenplay.

My music composition style is rooted in Broadway, with operatic leanings and hints of jazz, Irish, Middle Eastern, and other cultural flavors. I call my musical compositional style, “Global, Deep-fried Broadpera”, and I write stand-alone songs in styles ranging from voice/piano or small combo to full-throttle, multi-layered symphonic rock.

Various social awareness issues and activism usually find their way into my original music and writings.
