I’m happy to announce that the Book of Lead Sheets is finally avaialbe for purchase. As we all know, art takes time, and even more so, paint takes even longer to hit the canvas and cure. My goal setting out on this project was to make a Look Book which housed the lead sheets from Circle in a Square and featured artwork that I commissioned to depict the spirit of the songs. While not every song got it’s own customized piece, I made up for it by gathering already completed work and family heirlooms to round out the concept.
My mother, who has 3 pieces in the book, gave me my view of the visual arts world. I didn’t have a knack for painting, but the creative process, no matter what the medium, was deeply instilled in me from early on. As a result, there is never a day where I’m not thinking about creating something.
The book features work from my mom, Linda Kinhan, my brother, David Kinhan, my cousin, Paul Slifer, and close family friend’s Amy Estrin, Don Frank and Char Fitzpatrick. Sharing them with you helps me celebrate them and give thanks from whence I come.
In the Shop section of my website, there is an “About the Artists” pdf that you can download to learn more about the people I collaborated with on the music and the featured visual artists.
You can order the Look Book at Createspace – a print on demand publisher that handles your order from beginning to end. You may also order from Amazon.com both domestically and internationally. If you would like a personalized copy autographed and shipped from me, I do have a few copies on hand for those special orders. And I also offer the option of downloading the lead sheets individually, if you don’t want the whole book. All of this can be found at the Shop.
Feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
I hope you order it, play the songs, and sing them at your gigs! That is the ultimate compliment.
Coming soon are vocal arrangements.
Many Thanks, Lauren
