The Lumberjacks (2017)
Role: Composer, Songwriter, Lyricist
"The Lumberjacks" is the first official release of 8812 Productions / Original Musical Numbers, where viewers discover the happy medium between bearded men and old-fashioned woodworking that everyone knows and loves - tap dance.
It's totally a thing.
This project was a blast to work on, and the music was a collaborative effort between myself, Justin Wooten (the wonderful creative director of the musical number, and also one of the tap-dancing Lumberjacks!), Dan Radlauer, Paul Salerno and Douglas Pinsky.
