Sept. 2011 news
Hi there, it's been awhile. Decided I really need to drop in and post a little something! Currently sitting down this morning to begin scoring film for Patrice Hamilton's upcoming documentary. Patrice used one of my songs, "Something That Breaks," in her film "Exposure," http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QBfgZi5bGHk -but this is the first time I'll actually be scoring a whole film. It's something I've been wanting to do for a long time, so I'm thrilled, and busy with a rather substantial technical learning curve! I'll also be writing an actual song with lyrics for the trailer and the credits, so I'll bring that out when it's ready.
Teaching music program through Creative Classrooms and expanding my body of private students in NYC, and I'm about to take my own studio space to accommodate it. These students cover a wide demographic of ages, genders and interests, but most are working on a combination of singing/playing guitar/building repertoire and songwriting, so I coach in both vocal technique and guitar, and then helping them put it together. This is now morphing into upcoming workshops for students who are auditioning for special music programs (such as LaGuardia High School). FUN.
I've gotten a lot of nice notes from people wondering when the next gig is, and I do plan to play in the upcoming year, if not sooner. Performing is awesome & vital, but my creative energy right now is being fueled into these other projects, so I'm just allowing that flow. But definitely looking to record some of my new material by early 2012. See you or hear from you soon, I hope :) life is beautiful. Libby
