Videos from the Feinstein’s/54 Below concert are now online! Watch the whole 17 song playlist above (starting with the finale, of course.)

Thanks to all who came up/down/in/over to that midtown basement to share the evening with us. Thanks to Jennifer Ashley Tepper and the whole 54 Below staff for inviting us to kick off this wonderful (and ongoing!) series. And thanks, especially, to our 26 singers, actors, and musicians for bringing so much of our work to life!

54 Singers at 54 Below!

Just kidding, it’s only 18 (and a 6-piece band.) But that’s a whole lot of our favorite singers joining us for our Feinstein’s/54 Below concert on Sunday, July 30 at 7pm!

Delaney Amatrudo, Ally Bonino, Sojourner Brown, Max Chernin, Molly Hager, Sam Heldt, Emily Jenda, Marina Kondo, Kelsey Lake, Amy Linden, Ellen Condon Macy, Evan Maltby, Allison Posner, Allie Sandler, Libby Servais, Johnny Shea, Phoebe Strole, and Allie Trimm are going to bring you tunes from REB+VoDKa+MESomething Blue, and The Magnificent Seven!

We’re so excited to have so many faces we love (both new and familiar) on stage with us! Get your tickets now to celebrate their wonderfulness with us! (And use the code JMGL5 to get $5 off the cover for the main dining room…)

Return to 54 Below!

Julia and I are so happy to have been invited back to Feinstein’s/54 Below to kick off their NEW WRITERS AT 54 summer series on Sunday, July 30 at 7pm. We’re thrilled to have the chance to share songs from REB + VoDKa + MESomething Blue, and The Magnificent Seven all in one night!

We’re also excited/honored to be among friends in the series like Sam Salmond, Alexander Sage Oyen, Katie Thompson, and the newly announced Sukari Jones & Troy Anthony!

Tickets are on sale now. (There’s even a discount if you buy a tickets to three or more shows in the series…) Check back here for more updates in the coming weeks!

Stop! Demo time.

Here they are!  Huge thanks to our wonderful engineer Reed Taylor for all of these wonderful tracks.  And thanks to all the talented folks who came into the studio with us: MD Rich Silverstein; musicians Ian Axness, Eric Day, Danny Jonokuchi, Jeremy Yaddaw, and Andrew Zinsmeister; and singers Ally Bonino, Liz Carbonell, Max Chernin, Charles Franklin, Sam Heldt, Brad Standley, and Lauren Worsham.

Hear all of the tracks in story order with the rest of our demos on their WORKS pages!

The demos are coming! The demos are coming!

Julia and I are back in the studio to record some new tracks for I Love You, Anita Bryant and Something Blue.  We’re recording 14 tracks with some of our very favorite people, and it’s been a blast so far!  The new tracks should be available and posted in mid-September, so keep an eye (ear?) out.

We had a wonderful sitzprobe last night (pictured above in the music room at Julia’s dayjob – yes, that’s One World Trade Center hidden behind the break in the windows.) It was the first time I’d heard most of the songs with the band and I can’t wait to share them with the audience at the D-Lounge tonight!

If you can’t make it, be on the lookout for photos and videos in the next few weeks!

I promised you details, so here are details!

The NYTB concert of Something Blue on Monday, November 17 is almost upon us.  If the prospect of hearing new Gordon & Julia songs weren’t enough to get you there, come so you can hear the wonderful Jeremy Morse, Phoebe Strole, and Blake Segal sing said new songs, as directed by Ethan Heard and musically directed by Rich Silverstein!

Tickets and more info will be up on the New York Theatre Barn website soon!

The D-Lounge doors open at 7pm, show starts at 7:30.

NEW MUSICAL ALERT!

Julia and I are super excited to present songs from our newest musical Something Blue with New York Theatre Barn at the D-Lounge on Monday, Nov. 17 at 7:30pm.  We’re putting everything together for it right now, so stay tuned for updates!

Something Blue tells the story of a man who travels to his ex-boyfriend’s wedding to a woman.  Three people, lots of songs.  Listen to a few of them here!

I’m excited to return to NYTB @ The D-Lounge (almost exactly 7 years after my first NYC concert there) and happy to be sharing the bill with the wonderful Jay Alan Zimmerman!  Be on the lookout for ticket info soon…
