Let's Get Civical!

This month sees the launch of ‘Let’s Get Civical’, a new podcast that introduces you to basic topics of American politics and government, but in a fun, accessible way!  The show’s creators Arden Walentowski & Lizzie Stewart asked me to come up with a quirky 80s-inspired theme track, plus accompanying beds and stings.

The Suicide Club update

After a few years on the back burner I'm very excited to dive back in to working on 'The Suicide Club' - a steam-punk musical comedy set in Victorian London.

Currently it's a lot of reformatting work as I move the project files from Sibelius over to Finale, with the addition of a few new songs and several tweaks (including a new character, so the sextet will now have to be re-worked as a septet...).

And there's nothing like a deadline, so we've set an early March deadline to finish everything off, ready for an informal table read of the latest draft in mid-March.

A new director with an exciting immersive vision for the show is on-board, and we're all hoping to move the show forward this year. Stay tuned!
