Pioneer Productions Presents- The Living Room Series

Pioneer Productions Presents- The Living Room Series

Pioneer Productions kicks off its new Living Room Series with Women’s Work an evening of songs by female songwriters. Conceived and performed by singer/storyteller Wendy-Lane Bailey & composer/pianist Michele Brourman it has a funny, sometimes challenging but always defiantly feminine viewpoint that brings the worlds of Broadway, pop, and country together in one show.

The Living Room Series focuses on intimate concerts in non-traditional venues. “Putting great performers together with an audience in a cozy space can create magic. There are fewer barriers which helps make real connection,” says Dan Vissers, Pioneer’s artistic director. “I can’t think of a better way to start things off than with Wendy-Lane -she’s smart, witty, has great musical taste, and always takes the audience on a great ride!”

Bailey and Brourman have worked together for almost a decade. Brourman produced Bailey’s debut recording Breathing featuring two of Brourman’s songs. “I knew Michele’s songs before I knew Michele the person,” says Wendy-Lane, “It was love at first listen. Plus It’s wonderful to work with someone who gets you and takes your ideas and adds things that make them even more exciting”.

Bailey has collected a unique group of tunes spanning generations and genres. ”I wanted it to be fun and surprising and upend what audiences think they know. Almost everyone knows Ring of Fire was a hit for Johnny Cash, but how many people realize that it was June Carter Cash who wrote it ?” says Bailey.

Women’s Work plays September 16th at 6:00 PM at the Arthur Murray Studios, 26 Bloomfield Ave. 2nd Floor, Denville, NJ 07834. Tickets are $25 and may be obtained at womenswork.brownpapertickets.com .
