The Composer's Showcase at The gorgeous Smith Center recently invited me to perform at this month's event. I was thrilled to get a chance to play one of my new songs on their incredible piano, in this stunning room. This is "Why Lie".
Thinking about Michael Jackson a lot yesterday as I was laying down new material in the studio. We lost him 5 years ago now, but his greatness lives on in the music. Had a few minutes at the end of my session and tracked my favorite of his early songs. Here's to one of the greatest artists and entertainers that ever was, that ever will be.
It's been a great week for some side projects, I'm thrilled to bring them to you. First off, Bluebirds of Paradise (my Brazilian-pop inspired duo with Ari Hest) had it's first New York City show, and we were so thrilled with the response. With a packed house at the gorgeous Rockwood Music Hall Stage 3, we debuted ten brand new songs. We will be recording in the next few months and can't wait to bring you the first Bluebirds of Paradise EP. You can see the video for our single "Snow" over there to your right!
In other fun news, I took a stab at the big song heard 'round the world, "Let It Go", from Disney's Frozen, as per requested by my sweet little nephews. I had so much fun tracking this song, you can watch the video (also to you right) of the recording session.
Lots of new music coming this year, including some collaborations with producers I've been psyched to work with. Stay tuned! xoChrissi
