SongwritersWell, the summer is now officially over and who would have thought – the workload is still full on regardless of the season!

With so much writing (both fiction and songs), rehearsing for the upcoming show and meticulous planning, I don’t think I’ve ever juggled so many projects all at once.

But that’s what makes it all worthwhile, doesn’t it?

Over the past couple of months, I’ve been blessed to discover some fabulous new songwriters – and I don’t just mean producer/writers but solid composers. Some people say the craft of songwriting is slowly disappearing, but let’s face it, there’s got to be some cracking talent on their way to writing a classic or two in the coming years! I suppose this is something I’m most excited about – finding new talent and seeing it blossom in front of my eyes. Creativity – it pushes all my buttons, that’s for sure!

We’re anticipating some very exciting covers this fall, including Yanni’s upcoming new album and a PBS Special.

And of course, our very own “Thinking of Someone Else” remixed by Mystery & Matt Early – this brand new Jazz Funk mix is about to hit the radio stations thanks to the amazing work by Media 2 Radio worldwide and TopHit.ru in Russia!

Keep your eyes and ears open for more updates…

P.S. More songs coming your way within the next few weeks, including a brand new single “Treat Me Like a Woman” which I’ve just written with Fabulous Fab & Christopher Neil… It will be recorded in NYC’s Lower Eastside Flux Studios next month. I’m so psyched, cannot wait to share it with all of you!

“News, news, news”
Such an incredibly productive summer – and it’s still mid-August! Someone’s not destined to have a holiday this summer, but hey, dare I complain?
I am so excited about the airplay and chart success back home in Russia – all three mixes of “Thinking of Someone Else” (Riffs & Rays, Dr. Octavo and the Dean St. Radio Mix) are on the radio constantly, including Europe + Euro-Mix, Radio 7, NRJ’s Top 30 chart show, and the song has even taken over the phone ring tone market… Too bad I can’t purchase the ring tone for my US cell phone! *joking*
Also on the “home” front, I have just started collaborating with Lev Koppelkin @ Centre LK and Grigoriy Melamedov – we are now preparing the follow-up single in Russia, so stay tuned!
And the most exciting news of the summer so far… We’ve just signed the worldwide deal with Kobalt Music Publishing, which is absolutely fantastic! To think that I have officially joined the list of Kobalt artist/songwriters, such as Lionel Richie, Moby, Gwen Stefani, Kelly Clarkson, William Orbit, etc., is completely out of this world. 
And on the book front – a MAJOR twist but daren’t say “what” until it’s all confirmed… I’m cruel, I know!!
While the London and LA dates are yet to be confirmed, there’s more exciting stuff on the way, but till then – hope you’re all well and enjoying your summer holidays… while I’m working! πŸ™‚
P.S. A couple of soundtracks on the way, including “Yanni Voices” already in stores on DVD and on PBS, featuring one of my tunes written with Marc Russell and Dave Scheuer!
