BLOODTIES is An Official Selection of the 2010 New York Musical Theatre Festival.Ned Massey was tapped to be the next big rock star, that early promise went largely unfulfilled. With raw honesty and dark wit, a musician explores destiny, faith, forgiveness...and the ties that bind.Singer/songwriter Ned Massey's career began right out of college when he was discovered by legendary talent scout John Hammond. Described by Hammond as "the finest talent since Dylan and Springsteen," Massey was recording his debut album when Hammond suffered a stroke from which he never recovered. Since then, Ned has shared the bill in venues from LA to NYC with acts such as Shawn Colvin, Susanne Vega, Wilco, The Neville Brothers, The Smithereens, and many others. But he never fully achieved the fame or fortune forseen by Hammond. Creative team includes: Shoko Kambara (Scenic Design), Paul Miller (Lighting Design), Jennifer Ganske (Costume Design), Christopher Cronin and Carl Casella (Sound Design), Kevin Frech (Projections Design), Michael Morris (Orchestrations and Arrangements). Casting by Pat McCorkle (McCorkle Casting, Ltd.) with Carter Niles the Casting Associate.
