6: We're Back!


After a long hiatus, we're back! In this episode, we catch up and discuss the craziness in America, how the COVID-19 pandemic is impacting different people, our upcoming (hopefully) walk across Japan, and more.
In this episode, we talk to Broadway giant Ben Cohn about networking, developing a blockbuster hit musical from the ground up, what it means to be a great leader, and basically anything we could pick his brain about. Ben is the current music director for Dear Evan Hansen on Broadway along with solo artists Clay Aiken, Stephanie J. Block, and more. Also, stick around to find out which of the two Dear Evan Hansen music directors on the episode would win in a game of racquetball. Hint: it’s not Garret.
“In this episode, we talk about the fascinating life of cruise ship musicians, busing-and-trucking with Dirty Dancing: The Classic Story on Stage, why you shouldn’t do a multi-part audition all in one take, and much more with Ryan McCausland - Hufflepuff, former baseball enthusiast, current drummer for the Dear Evan Hansen First National Tour. Plus, will brave Captain Healey and trusty First Officer McCausland safely land a Boeing 737 at Hong Kong International Airport?”
In this episode, Garret and I talk about film scoring, public school music programs, and tendonitis in Ireland with Robb Taylor – a Boston-based film composer. Star Wars Minus Williams Spitfire Audio Robb Taylor - Film Composer
