Easy Peezy here, there, everywhere!

The long-awaited day has finally arrived: my Easy Peezy song is out there in the universe! I was asked to write this song to bring attention to Pediatric OSA – Obstructive Sleep Apnea, that is. I learned that an estimated 2 million kids in the US have this condition, though it is often mistakenly diagnosed as ADD.

So all that stuff had to go in the song, in addition to singing about a urine test that would replace the need for hooking kids up to a bunch of wires in a sleep lab. This was definitely the most challenging songwriting assignment I have ever had. I scratched my head, danced around on one foot, and came up with a tidal wave of pee puns!

I enlisted Steven Strauss to play ukulele and Daniel Dennis (Prime Cut Studio) to provide the rest of the instrumentation and produce the track. I’m absolutely tickled pink with the outcome. This brilliant marketing campaign features an animated music video that brings to life the “Easy Peezy Pee Test.” Be one of the first to hear the song by clicking the video link below:

Do me a favor and support this song by heading over to the Easy Peezy site and learning more about this worthy project. Spread the word, buy the song on iTunes, dance with the “Peezies” and come back to donate when they open up their Indiegogo campaign on September 16. EZPZ_Poster_BikeThey are raising money to get the pee test approved and available nationwide. I wish them rip-roaring success and hope the song dances it’s way into thousands of heads: Let’s Make It Easy Peezy – let it be!

Now for those of you who are local here in the Bay Area, I have a show this Friday night at The Monkey House Theater in Berkeley. Steven Strauss and his mighty uke will accompany me on some jazz songs and Eve originals – heck, I might even break into Easy Peezy if I get a request from the audience!

Friends of Old Puppy (Steven’s East Bay band) will also be joining us on stage.  We will be performing this next tune for sure – a humorous take on a classic Wizard of Oz song – shown here with the SJC big band orchestra last month in New Mexico.

Stay playful, my friends! Urine my thoughts and in my heart!

Summer Flow

I’m excited to share some very unique opportunities that have come my way recently. But first a warning: this content may contain several references to bodily functions. Read on, if you dare!

I was recently commissioned to write a song about pee. That’s right, pee. Those of you who know my children’s songs will not be surprised by this. My new song will be part of a fundraising campaign for a urine test that detects obstructive sleep apnea (and yes, I had to sing “obstructive sleep apnea” in the song). Believe it or not, the tune is quite catchy. Stay tuned for the animated video of Easy Peezy, appearing next month. Urine for a treat! (Puns, I love puns.)

Ah, now where were we? Oh yes, opportunities! I was also asked to make a video of the Gershwin tune, The Man I Love. Steven Strauss and I enjoyed performing in our favorite outdoor spot. Enjoy this intimate live rendition, as if you were strolling through the park on a sunny day, waiting for the one you love.

 

Summer Orchestra NMSpeaking of Gershwin, I’ll be crooning Summertime along with new original material at my City Light show with the SJC Summer Orchestra. This is my second time performing with a big band and I couldn’t be more excited. Dr. Keith Cochrane arranged all of my songs for orchestra and will conduct the show this coming Tuesday, July 29 at San Juan College in Farmington, New Mexico. Stay tuned for videos from that as well!

And finally I’m launching a new blog site under a secret name. You guys are hearing this first. It’s all about what the super diva does when she’s not onstage. So if you have no interest in reading about my armpits, please do NOT click here. Though it would be a shame to miss the featured new video of the classic Eve & Mare song, I Smell.  If you do end up delving into Alice and the Rabbit Hole, I’d love to hear what you think! Follow me, leave a comment. Tell me about your armpits….

That’s all for now, folks. Hope you’re experiencing lots of “flow” this summer, too!
