Liner Notes

A singing fairy godmother they said. After the show pulled off a giant blue furry fighting a primordial time demon you learn not to ask questions. I had no idea a few songs here and there in the fourth season would balloon to a full album of 21 original tunes and custom arrangements. Not many series can give you Mr. Rodger’s style songs, an alien trying to win a singing competition, a 1940s jazz club version of Bell Biv DeVoe’s “Poison,” or a cowboy narrator strumming through the halls of a spaceship. I’m so delighted these eclectic efforts can be enjoyed on your favorite listening device. So many talents brought this music to life: the series writers who penned the original lyrics, the wonderful cast & guest actors, the studio musicians, recording engineers, and the rest of the music team. Twelve-year-old me would never have imagined I’d produce such an album!

Also featuring “I Surrender” (music by Raashi Kulkarni), the lullaby version of “Sweet Baby James” (produced by Richard Kohan), and Shayan Sobhian’s cover of “Peace Train.” 

Special thanks to executive producers Phil Klemmer and Keto Shimizu for their leadership, generosity of spirit, and unwavering support for the music in this show. They and the wonderful group of writers they lead continue to inspire and challenge me. Shout out to the producer who makes everything happen, Geoff Garrett who got the giant Indiana Jones-size rock rolling on getting this album released. I’m greatly indebted to Season Kent, music supervisor extraordinaire, who gave me a shot and then kept calling. Also, I am forever thankful that Blake Neely opened the door to this magical world for me. Not enough nice things can be said about these fine folks, er legends!
