What fun we had last fall at the Goodspeed Opera House! I had the pleasure of playing Maggie Jones in this revival of 42nd St. Directed by the one and only Randy Skinner!

Although officially released on all digital music platforms on Saturday, November 20th. For more information visit www.fatlab.com.
Longtime collaborators Lisa Howard and Michael Shaieb had often dreamed of producing their own Christmas album. During the pandemic, with more time on their hands than usual, they decided to take advantage and fulfill their Dream! Inspired by her love of Christmas movies, Lisa chose the songs for the album by envisioning that they were the score to any one of her many favorite holiday classics. What arose was an eclectic mix of classic Christmas favorites and modern pop hits. Michael Shaieb arranged and orchestrated the songs with a fresh new take, and the result is a beautifully crafted holiday album that you’ll want to listen to over and over.
“Creating this Christmas album was a true partnership with Lisa,” share album producers Shaieb and Brent Lord. “The variety in her song selection allowed us to feature the many stylistic sides of her voice in the arrangements. We have a shorthand with each other from having worked together for many years, and producing this album was much more fun for us than it was work.”
