New Work Wednesdays, a weekly web series created by Joshua Hinck, premieres Sept. 24 and features interviews and jam sessions with today’s rising composers and lyricists.
Confirmed guests for the first season include Drew Gasparini (Make Me Bad, Smash, Crazy, Just Like Me), Joel B. New (Standalone, To Hell and Back, Something New Podcast), Joe Iconis (The Black Suits, Things to Ruin, Smash),Anna K. Jacobs (POP!, Teeth), Kamala Sankaram (Miranda, Thumbprint), Scott Burkell and Paul Loesel (LMNOP, Sorta Love Songs, The Extraordinary Ordinary), Gaby Alter (Band Geeks, Nobody Loves You), Jen Eden, and Will Van Dyke (Chasing the Day, Magnificent Climb).
“These are artists that may or may not be familiar to you-that’s what I love about this; meeting risk takers in the industry,” said Hinck. “I hope it is useful for people in many different ways-students and teachers, producers, and people who are just curious about what is going on in the business.”
Each week, composers and lyricists share themselves and their art through discussion and song. “It was this unexpected opportunity to talk about how I got here, why I’m still here, what gets me going, and, of course, cartoons from the 80’s,” said B. New.
