eine kleine trunkmusik

Updated: Jul 3, 2020

“Curtains”, the Kander and Ebb musical with a book by Rupert Holmes, had one of my favorite, stingingly resonant lines. The producer of a new musical was hollering at the show’s songwriters, demanding that they replace one of the songs. “And I want a brand NEW song”, he told them. “None of that 'Eine Kleine Trunk Musik'!”

Lately I’ve been thinking of all the songs in my own “trunk.”

I have a lifetime’s worth of songs in a tall metal file cabinet.

I have two sons. I would never have kept THEM locked in a drawer for decades.

I think it's time to let these other “children” out.

So starting July 9th, I'm going to release a piece of Trunk Musik every two weeks.

I’ll tell you a little about the song, who I wrote it with, why or when we wrote it.

Some will be raw demos,some more produced.

Some sung by me, some by other artists.

I hope they’ll touch you, strike a chord.

Maybe you'll want to sing one of them.

What matters is - they’ll be heard.
