I’m in the middle of recording my best songs from my participation in the Bushwick Book Club. The Bushwick Book Club is the inspired creation of my friend, Susan Hwang. It’s a rotating collective of songwriters who read the same book every month, write a song about it and then perform these songs monthly at a public show. I’ve participated in BBC pretty frequently for the past year or so.
The songs I’m recording are inspired by such books as The Shining, Julia Child’s The Art of French Cooking, and The Phantom Tollbooth. I’m making this EP at Room 17 with collaborators John Kengla, Rob Heath and producer, Joe Rogers. It sounds really different from my regular music and I’m excited to share it with you eventually….
Also, this month I will briefly come out of retirement as an actress, to appear in my friend Benjamin Cartel’s video for a beautiful song of his.
And my band’s next show is at the Living Room on April 23rd at 9pm. I’d love to see you there.
PS Here’s one more picture from our show at Sundance Film Festival last month.
