If you've seen a concert of mine, you may know that I tend to lean pretty heavily towards ballad-land; I just love a nice, moody slow song! All the more reason I was stoked that Gordon and my song "The First Day Without You" was featured on a Contemporary Musical Theatre blog post listing some of their favorite Pop-Rock Uptempo songs! See that world? I am technically capable of writing at a clip faster than 120 bpm! They say:
"It’s her first day without him and what does she do? Sing this awesome pop rock breakup song! Julia Meinwald & Gordon Leary’s fun and feisty song for a soprano with a good mix takes us through all the raw emotions of a breakup – from funny to poignant. It could easily be cut and would make a great 16 bar audition song."
