My Top 20 Songs of 2013
by David Clarke - Dec 29, 2013

In 2013, I turned 28, which apparently is one of several years at the end of your 20s where basically your life hits the fan and sudden changes surround you. I looked around, and everyone else seemed so happy. Then, I breathed and realized that I have plenty to be happy about. In 2013 I became BroadwayWorld.com's official theatre recording critic and have been exposed to some incredible albums since accepting that title. Some I have loved; others I have not. Regardless of my feelings towards the albums themselves, these are the top 20 songs from 2013 I simply cannot get out of my mind. (more...)

BWW Blog: Q. Smith of Broadway Under the Stars - Love Changes Everything
by Guest Blogger: Q. Smith - Jul 09, 2013

'Love. Love changes everything- how you live and how you die.' Those lyrics could not be more profound. It's simple. Love does conquer all. Fourth of July Morgan (Karr) and I laid on blankets, under the stars in the middle of a field after the firework display and spoke of love; how it hurts, how scary it is, how confusing it can be, how amazing it is when you have it, and how hard it is to continue believing in the power of it. One thing we both agreed on is how it can change everything, even the world. Love can make you feel like you're flying. We all want it. We all need it. It is an intrinsic part of our lives. I don't believed I've loved as hard or as strong in my life. Transcendence took me there! (more...)

BWW Reviews: Yellow Sound Label's KERRIGAN-LOWDERMILK LIVE is an Exceedingly Fun and Charming Album
by David Clarke - May 23, 2013

Magical things really can happen when Broadway talents converge, as is proven on Kait Kerrigan and Brian Lowdermilk's sophomore album KERRIGAN-LOWDERMILK LIVE. The album exists because the duo raised an impressive and record-breaking $35,000 in their debut album's Kickstarter campaign. With the extra $25,000 they funded a concert tour, 2011's 'You Made This Tour,' and a live album, KERRIGAN-LOWDERMILK LIVE. As a singer-songwriter duo that also writes for theatre, there is a prominent and fascinating indie vibe that inhabits every track. As Kait Kerrigan states on one of the tracks, there is simply no denying that this album fabulously showcases talents are the 'future of theater and music in general.' (more...)
