Putting together THE PASS has been an eye opening and all encompassing experience for me. There are no short cuts, no splicing of tape with a razor, which is how I learned to edit in the studio before Protools.

There is the experience of creating the piece, pulling it together, after you have written it, with various collaborators, musicians, coaches, directors, producers, lighting designers, stage design, projections, sound design, the theater, the publicist, the journalists, and all… to reach its final destination: THE AUDIENCE. That’s the other side.
My working on THE PASS has been the most intense, & exciting, gut wrenching, out of my comfort zone & scary experience in my professional music career. We open on 9/27 in London at The Playground Theatre. I am going back to where it all started. London. Sharing (truly) my stories along the way. Before and after…I first stepped foot on the land of cars driving on the other side of the street. When I fell in love with England.
There are always other sides, other stories, other ways of being, other songs and other days. These days…are these days and these are no ordinary days for me.
and today I discovered Delia Derbyshire.
See you in London!
