Well, it's time to get out of your homes, dorms and apartments and enjoy all the upcoming great weather. That means, of course, that your portable music devices need to be 'loaded up' with all the stuff you want to hear, while at the airports, beaches, parties and other destinations you'll be frequenting over the Spring and Summer seasons. Here's the latest stuff I've been sent (or acquired) and assigned to listen to.

WHISPER HOUSE: Kyle's Blog Begins
by Eddie Varley - Mar 12, 2009

Grammy and Tony award-winning songwriter and composer Duncan Sheik returns with his new album WHISPER HOUSE, which hit stores on January 27 on the Victor Records/Sony label. WHISPER HOUSE marks Sheik's first solo album since 2006's critically-acclaimed White Limousine and comes on the heels of the success of Spring Awakening. The idea for WHISPER HOUSE came about when actor Keith Powell (30 Rock) approached Sheik about developing a musical theatre piece with him. Following a trip Powell took to New England, a story began to emerge centered around a lighthouse, and up-and-coming young playwright Kyle Jarrow, already an Obie winner for A Very Merry Unauthorized Children's Scientology Pageant, signed on to create the book. BroadwayWorld is excited to bring you Kyle's exclusive WHISPER HOUSE Blog, so without any more delay, journey to WHISPER HOUSE!

Duncan Sheik Returns With His New Album, WHISPER HOUSE 1/27
by BWW News Desk - Jan 27, 2009

Grammy and Tony award-winning songwriter and composer Duncan Sheik returns with his new album Whisper House, due out January 27 on Victor Records/Sony. The collection of songs was written for a forthcoming theatrical piece. Whisper House marks Sheik's first solo album since 2006's critically-acclaimed White Limousine and comes on the heels of the success of Spring Awakening. In February, Sheik will embark on a nationwide tour featuring original Spring Awakening cast member Lauren Pritchard. On Whisper House, Sheik employs a narrative approach to songwriting, combining elements of the chamber pop that first brought him critical and commercial acclaim. Much like Spring Awakening, which The New York Times praised as a 'deft blend of straight-up rock, folk and melodic pop,' Whisper House is just as much a pop record as it is a musical theatre composition. Structured as a melodrama, each of the 10 songs on the album weave together to tell the story of a child's grief and spinster's longing as seen through the eyes of the ghosts that haunt the remote, World War II-era Maine lighthouse where they live.
