The idea [behind the 40@40 album] was to have a lot of different voices to foster this sense of community that Laura and I both feel is essential to the genre. [Music is] a way of commenting on the way we’re feeling, what’s going on in society, and many things. It expresses ideas and emotions that are hard to express, complicated, or abstract.”

With the art-song genre—text and music—I want them to see how composers navigate and interpret the text they’ve been working with and the subtlety and intricacy that is involved. And I want them to be excited about art song and explore it further with other artists, composers, and time periods.”
