This is a posting that I shared on my personal blog, has very little to do with actual cabaret work, but struck me nonetheless. It is a Brooklyn based songwriter named Ryan Amador collaborating with Jo Lampert in a piece called "Define Me". I guess what strikes me about the piece is how heartfelt and personal the message is and that is what we yearn for in the material we choose. The song is about all the labels inflicted onto us from others and the metaphor of washing ourselves clean of these. Beautiful imagery and a story that could be any one of ours. Enjoy.
