“Birdsong” as heard on ‘The Romanoffs’ is out now!

Hi there dear peoples!
I’m very excited that the episode of The Romanoffs, featuring a new little song of mine, and shot in the stunning location of Mexico City (Mexico, I love you!!!), is coming to your Amazon Prime very soon. It is episode 6, called Panorama, of a very special show. Each of the 8 episodes is its own world, a full film, and unique to itself. My very talented and inspiring friend Matthew Weiner (*by the way I was a huge fan of his creation Mad Men, long before I had the pleasure of calling him a friend…) wrote and directed all the episodes.
This song, called “Birdsong”, began with a few lines of a poem he was writing, he texted me the poem, and I heard the first two lines as a melody, so I texted him my little beginning of a song… After that, many months later, he called and as I rode in a car from the east side of LA to the west, he told me the whole beautiful story of the episode. When the ride was over, I had the chance to quietly sit and write a song full of the images he told me about… He imagined the song on classical guitar, and flowing right into a very gorgeous piece of music called “Berceuse from the Dolly Suite, Op. 56” by Gabriel Fauré. I fell in love with that piece and tried to create a simple transition from the song into the piece so it could work for the final scene of the episode. (*a very VERY special and magical scene, may I add!) A talented classical guitarist named Atticus McKittrick played the guitar part. An actress and musician, Melinda Dahl lip synchs my part of the song in the last scene. (Just mentioning, because she is wearing a lot of amazing makeup from “Dios de la Muertos”/”Day of the Dead” and some may have thought it was actually me… it’s just my voice.) Hope you watch this, and other episodes of this mesmerizing and original show… And wishing you a lot of fun and beauty in the days to come!

And thank you for VOTING! And if you didn’t, for whatever reason, it’s ok! But please trust me, that it is a wonderful feeling, and privilege, to have this right—and to participate in a living breathing Democracy. Most places in the world don’t have a real vote that counts. We do. Even with all the troubles and struggles, we still have it—and we are all in this together!
Love, regi-nananana
P.S. What a dream come true it was to play at the Kennedy Center with the National Symphony Orchestra for Ben Folds’ series DECLASSIFIED. Ben is a magical man, and it was an experience and a night I will never ever forget. If you care about yourself, and I hope you do, take yourself out, or someone you love, to see the Symphony. Orchestras are a balm for the soul and a medicine during this complicated and fast life we are all living. Let the music wash over you and make you happy.
*a friendly reminder from your friend and classical music enthusiast, regi
