Author Sally Stevens will read from and talk about her new book, I Sang That: A Memoir of Hollywood! This book is a personal journey behind the scenes into the world of music-makers who created the film scores, television music, sound recordings, commercials and concert evenings over the last sixty years. It’s about a long singing career that began in 1960 with concert tours – Ray Conniff, Nat King Cole, and later, solo work in concert with Burt Bacharach – to thirty years of vocals and main titles for The Simpsons, vocals for Family Guy…vocals on hundreds of film & television scores & sound recordings, plus twenty-two years as Choral Director for the Oscars. It’s also the personal story of growing up in a “his, hers and theirs” family in the forties and fifties, and how a shy little girl became a second-generation singer in the ever-evolving music business of Hollywood. “My journey with Sally Stevens – I wouldn’t have missed it for the world. Hats off to you, Sally – you’ve done it all!” – Burt Bacharach
In addition to her singing performances and work as a vocal contractor/choral director, Sally Stevens has had her short stories, poems and essays published in: The Offbeat, Mocking-heart Review, Raven’s Perch, Hermeneutic Chaos Literary Journal, The Voices Project, Los Angeles Press, Between the Lines Anthology: Fairy Tales & Folklore Re-imagined, Funny in Five Hundred, The Missouri Review and No Extra Words podcast.
