Richard Lewis Baba Yaga is one of my favorite mythological characters. She's got her own theme song now! Also, Red is a great, twisted out-come for the story of Little Red Riding Hood. And what's not to love about Frog and Toad? "FRIENDS! Not enemies!" Favorite track: Baba Yaga.
Dragonwing

Dragonwing Red - sung by Jody Ellen - was the inspiration and the song I to which I "Killed Bill" at the 2014 Spa CIty Sweethearts. Thank you to my friend Alyssa Rosenbloom for creating a version of the story where Red is not a victim in any sense of the word! Favorite track: Red.

about

This album started as a collaboration between me and Tempest. It grew out of a handful of musical performance pieces, blending music and dance with the purpose of telling a story. The collaboration expanded to include the word-smithing talents of Alyssa Rosenbloom. When I sent her the first draft lyrics for "Gepetto's Lament", she replied with a MUCH better version, and was further motivated to write lyrics for several more songs!
