New Release - HOMEMADE FUSION

Think - Songs For a New World, Putting It Together, Last Five Years, Tick Tick... Boom.

A thrilling new Song Cycle from this exciting, award-winning New York writing duo: Kooman & Dimond.

BIOGRAPHY

Michael Kooman and Christopher Dimond received the 2010 Jonathan Larson Grant and are the first recipients of the Lorenz Hart Award and have been three-time finalists for the Fred Ebb Award.
Their musical DANI GIRL has been work-shopped at the Kennedy Center, Cherry Lane Theatre, the ASCAP/Disney Musical Theater Workshop, and was featured in the 2011 NAMT Festival of New Musicals. The show has seen recent productions in Toronto, Dallas, Boston, and Australia.
Their debut album, OUT OF OUR HEADS, featuring an all-star lineup of Broadway performers,
is now available on iTunes.

STORY

HOMEMADE FUSION, a series of musical snapshots from the imaginations of Kooman and Dimond. Each snapshot attempts to make sense of an increasingly senseless world by examining the paradox of modern times. At once dangerously cynical and desperately romantic, it is a tale of love, loss, and candy bars.
Made up of clever solos and duets, each tells a strong story, whether it be a poignant ballad or a risqué comic number. Songs deal with being true to oneself, chocoholics, misinterpreting signals and how Lucy’s laugh can drive you insane.

and 3-11 women, each of various voice types.
Many of the songs find humour in lifestyles and relationships. Written for a group of
extremely talented singers, with individually distinctive voices, and who have the ability
to create a wide range of characters to suit each song.
