Cutting-Edge Composers is kicking off the fall with one of our favorite new composers, Kevin Fogarty
. Dogfight's Steven Booth
sang his song "Perfectly Happy" at our NYMF concert.
Kevin had this to say about writing it:
"'Perfectly Happy' is from a song cycle called "The Five Year Plan" where all of the characters are struggling with the fact they're not where they want to be - in their jobs, their relationships, their lives. The song flowed from my own personal frustrations and fears, but I think it's something that others can relate to, especially artists. The character realizes his life has a specific purpose and apart from that, he can never find real happiness."
is a contemporary musical theatre composer/lyricist living and working in New York. He was a finalist for the 2011 John Wallowitch
Award and selected composer for the New Voices at CUA Music Festival in Washington D.C. In 2009, his musical Call Me Home
received a workshop production at Montgomery Bell Academy and was selected for the 2011 Manhattan Repertory Theatre
Summerfest. His song cycle The 5 Year Plan
premiered in Nashville, TN in 2011 and in 2012 he made his New York debut presenting selections from his musicals in a concert produced by the New York Theatre Barn. He was a featured composer on Cutting-Edge Composers III, a concert series featured at the New York Musical Theatre Festival (NYMF). kevinfogartymusic.com
