HI, I'm Peggy Sarlin
Thanks for visiting - let me pour you a cup of digital tea while I tell my tale.
In any case, I'm delighted to meet you. The big news here is my new album, Let There Be Love, featuring ten soulful songs I wrote to explore - what else? - love, love, love.
Produced by maestros Jeff Franzel, Paul Frazier, and Steve Williams, it features some of New York's top musicians and was recorded at Atomic Studios.
This is my second album (my first was Friends and Family) and it comes directly from my heart. Songwriting is a profound adventure for me and I'd like to share with you the unusual story of....
HOW IT ALL BEGAN
I started out as a singer/songwriter and enjoyed some success. Columbia Records signed me; Bette Midler rocked Madison Square Garden with “I Regret Everything,” a comedy song I co-wrote, and Patti LuPone recorded it twice.
But, being a practical soul, I relinquished music with a sigh, promising myself I’d return…someday. So I turned to writing scripts for many delightful children’s television shows (Cyberchase, Are You Afraid of the Dark?, and Olivia, among others), occasionally managing to sneak a song into a script.
My eclectic freelance career also found me writing a book on the brain, scripts for NASA, and a speech for the Pope. (That’s a whole other story.) Life was interesting and packed with pleasure, and then on November 16, 2012, my husband had a stroke.
