Letters from Daisy

My first Bushwick Book Club performance, with my new song Letters from Daisy Inspired by Tennessee Williams’ “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof” (New upload with a fixed typo in the titles) The New York City chapter of The Bushwick Book Club is a monthly performance event hosted by actress/musician Susan Hwang, taking place at various venues. Artists are invited to write a song inspired by a particular work of literature, or poetry, dance, even stand-up comedy. But primarily it is about songwriting. The March 2016 installment featured the play “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof,” which won Tennessee Williams the 1955 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. It took place at Superfine, in Dumbo, Brooklyn. Letters for Daisy represents excerpts of letters written to a relative by Daisy, a household maid and one of the smallest roles in the play. Backing vocals and instrumentation by Rob Meador, Doug Pierson and Henry Tenney. Performed on a Martin OMC-28B Laurence Juber signature model with a duel-source B-Band pickup. Oddly enough, I woke up that morning with the first strains of laryngitis, so a couple of times I go to voice words that do not appear or die out, and need repeated, and my range compresses considerably as the song goes on. But not a bad debut. And now I have no voice at all.  So time for the age old apple cider vinegar, lime juice and honey. The Bushwick Book Club Susan Hwang Superfine
