Cousins - The Songs of Beck & May featuring James Snyder, Todrick Hall, Allie Trimm, David Burnham and more, is set for digital release tomorrow, Dec. 21st.
"Cousins - The Songs of Beck & May" is the debut album from songwriters Jordan Beck and Jonathan May, who as the title suggests are cousins.
The album features the vocal talents of James Snyder (Broadway's Cry-Baby), Alistair Tober, Mazie Wilson, Todrick Hall (Broadway's The Color Purple, Memphis, and American Idol), John Massey (Happy Days Nat. Tour), Baraka May (Cirque du Soleil's IRIS), Brad Standley, Destiny Lofton, Drew Tablak, Allie Trimm (Broadway's 13, Bye Bye Birdie), and David Burnham (Broadway's Wicked, The Light in The Piazza).
This eclectic selection of tunes from the Beck & May songbook was funded by a successful campaign on the fundraising website Kickstarter.
Jordan Beck and Jonathan May are alumni of the Johnny Mercer Songwriter's Project where they were mentored by Craig Carnelia, Lin-Manuel Miranda, and Lari White. Their work has been seen in concert in NYC, LA, Chicago, and The Kennedy Center in Washington D.C. (as part of ASCAP's Broadway Today & Tomorrow Series). They contributed songs to the online musical web series "The Sunset Players", and their original musical adaptation of Peter Pan was recently presented at the ASCAP/DreamWorks Musical Theatre Workshop under the direction of Stephen Schwartz.
