Miranda Celebrates Two Milestones

Posted Feb 02, 2011

Miranda Music CEO Kitty Skrobela celebrated her 70th birthday and Miranda's 15th year in business in a gala performance at New York's Metropolitan Room. Miranda artists Marcus Simeone, Tracy Stark, Kathleen France and Sean Harkness presented songs from their past and future CDs and other favorites.

Surprise guest Kitty Skrobela represented artists who are gone by singing John Wallowitch's song "This Moment," the last song on Miranda's first CD, Berri Blair's Blame It on my Youth. Regrettably, other Miranda artists were not able to be present - the good news is that this is a good excuse for another show. Stay tuned for news.

Kathleen France Rocks!

Kathleen France's long-awaited CD The Book of Love, recorded live at the Metropolitan Room, rocks with the band Tracy Stark, Skip Ward, Dave Silliman and Sean Harkness. This view of the hopes, the joys, the sorrows and the spite of romance is now being mastered and will be launched in a gala release in late spring. Meanwhile, relax, chill out and sip a mai tai with Kathleen's show Vacation at Don't Tell Mama.

Marcus Simeone's Latest CD Coming Soon!

Posted Feb 08, 2011

Songs from Marcus's new CD Haunted delighted audiences in previews at the Metropolitan Room in November. Marcus is hard at work on this first studio CD, featuring songs accompanied by their composers, including John Bucchino, Tracy Stark and Heather Sullivan, and the title track "Haunted," a new song by Marcus and Tracy. Other songs include the electrifying "Soldier of Love" and the sweet nostalgic "I Love You So Much It Hurts Me".
