LML Music, Everyone Has A Story
The new collection, EVERYONE HAS A STORY: THE SONGS OF Adryan Russ, offers Broadway, pop, cabaret - even a holiday song - by this lyricist/composer of Inside Out, the award-winning off-Broadway musical about five women in group therapy that played New York's Cherry Lane and many theaters country-wide. Adryan last year participated in a tribute to Charles Strouse, with Michael Feinstein, at Carnegie Hall and in Chicago's "ASCAP Cabaret: Her Turn" with Karen Mason, Sharon McNight, Babbie Green, Christine Lavin, Lindy Robbins, Patty Morabito, Dan Stetzl, Beckie Menzie and an array of Chicago cabaret performers, hosted by Jason Graae.
EVERYONE HAS A STORY, produced by Bruce Kimmel, is graced by some of Los Angeles and Broadway stages' finest singers. Among them, Susan Egan (Tony nominated for Beauty & The Beast, recently played Sally Bowles in Cabaret, currently starring in "Nikki" on the WB network), Jason Graae (Falsettos, Forbidden Broadway, Ragtime), Cindy Benson (Les Miserables, Cats, Nunsense), Sharon McNight (Starmites Tony nominee, Sophie Tucker Songbook), and Joan Ryan (star of Ruthless! The Musical). A fellow of the Cabaret Symposium in Connecticut, Adryan sings a song herself. Accompaniment has sometimes solo, sometimes full arrangements of legendary guitarist, Grant Geissman; and the classic piano stylings of music director, arranger, composer Shelly Markham.
EVERYONE HAS A STORY: THE SONGS OF Adryan Russ is a collection of songs written for shows, cabaret performances, individual artists and sometimes, she says, "pure therapy."
