STANDALONE is a song cycle about isolation: solitude, loneliness, and, surprisingly most often, one masquerading as the other. Individually, the songs in STANDALONE are firmly rooted in isolation, but collectively, they challenge the audience to be open to and reconnect with the world around them. STANDALONE is currently seeking development and production opportunities.
