Beatles Revolution by Strawberry Feels

My friend Gavin Gold and I have created a new Beatles cover duo called Strawberry Feels.

 The Denver production was glorious. I'm not writing much in this blog because I'm writing a private diary and doing social media elsewhere, though I confess I'm really more into music, exercise, my acting class and being alive than I am about being a social media personality. It's just too exhausting.

Also, I've worked out my book outline and believe I should focus on that. It'd make a great movie.

It would! 

Also, we went to dinner in the Village with friends. I love these old places. This bathroom is exquisite.

70th Birthday Present-TLS Littleton

I'm turning 70 next week and, with TLS-Littleton suddenly blooming in the mountains, I'm accepting it as the most perfect birthday present imaginable.
I'm getting excited all over again about The Last Session songs and score. They're asking me questions.
Like I know anything.
The true birthday Gift is the idea that a new generation of producers and performers have rediscovered our show, one that never had the visibility of its cross-town sister, Rent.
This cast has seen a lot of life. They have lived through things none of us know about. That's what will be on that stage, and it's thrilling.

They will channel all that lived experience into the raw emotions of the songs of TLS.
They're tearing into it with jam sessions -- and I gave them the freedom to play with it and make it their own, within logical boundaries, of course.
There's a wonderful experiment called "Take it too far." Where you get a totally crazy idea or an approach and you give yourself permission, at least one time, to go way too far with it.
Sometimes you can't go far enough. If you don't punch the boundary, you can't find the boundary. We live and breathe within those boundaries, so we better be punching hard -- but then, easing back.

Truths don't need a lot of drama.

Real Truth, when you find it, is dead simple.

I want to see who these actors are through the words and feelings of our beloved Gideon, Tryshia, Vickie, Buddy and Jim.

It makes sense that they would find The Last Session now. It's a good piece and simple to produce.

This is a song about grieving based on a true story about a couple who lost their son. They love jigsaw puzzles and, after playing them, they disassemble them, date the box and then save them to play again five years later -- keeping the boxes in their son's old bedroom. Why? Because it helps them remember him and the times they played these puzzles together.

Given the events of this past week, where a number of children were needlessly slaughtered by an angry teen with legal, easy access to assault rifle weapons of war in Texas, it seemed only appropriate to release this early. 

All the photography, video editing, and music writing and production was by me. Thanks to Elio Pace and Gavin Gold, who gave me early feedback on the song and the production. This should be available on all sites that both stream and sell music soon. Remember to support independent artists by generously sharing the music you love, and if possible, to purchase the music as sites like Apple Music or Amazon.
