Committed to My Heart
To the many singers, actors, directors, and producers who have asked 'how can we hear your work?' here is Volume One, Committed to my Heart. This CD is a small sample, and represents some of my favorite compositions over the last 13 years. The oldest song is 'No More Snow'; written in 1992 with my dear friend, the late Earl Klein. It tells the old story of a young couple decided whether to leave Edmonton's wintry climate for balmy Vancouver. A new composition is a setting of Vikram Seth's lovely poem 'Qingdao: December,' about a tranquil seaside town in China. It is inlcuded with his kind permission. A duet for tenor and baritone, it is sung beautifully by Tim Krol and Fraser Walters. The songs in between were written for musicals, written with and for friends, and written for the sheer joy of setting beautiful words to music. There are show tunes, art songs, a country song, and an edgy rock song. I hope you enjoy hearing my music as much as I've enjoyed creating it.
