“Fallen Star” to be published in NewMusicShelf Anthology of Trans & Nonbinary Voices

I’m thrilled that two songs I’ve written in collaboration with visionary playwright & lyricist Mashuq Mushtaq Deen are being published in two different anthologies this year!

It’s an honor to have our music included in NewMusicShelf’s upcoming publication, NewMusicShelf Anthology of New Music: Trans & Nonbinary Voices, Vol. 1.

Fallen Star, the first song we wrote together in 2017, will appear in this anthology in a brand new arrangement for solo voice. I’m thrilled our song will have this opportunity to be found by performers, teachers, presenters, and audiences who are in search of new repertoire created by and/or for trans and nonbinary artists.

Grateful to curator Aiden K. Feltkamp and publisher Dennis Tobenski for selecting our work, and for putting together this fabulous project!

The Methuen Drama Book of Trans Plays book cover

Yet another anthology celebrating trans artists, The Metheun Drama Book of Trans Plays, features Deen’s play The Betterment Society, which includes our song “Come to the Edge.”

It has been such a gift for me to be a small part of this play’s journey through workshops and drafts over the years, and I’m very pleased it will reach a broader audience through this anthology.
