ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Life is a journey of love. This album is so important to me because it is about love, and love is what matters most. Music and family have always been at the center of my life. My childhood was filled with singing, dance classes, performing in musicals, directing shows with the neighborhood kids, lots of animals, and family. My parents met in New York when they were both in shows on Broadway—my dad starred in “Finian’s Rainbow”, and my mom was cast by Irving Berlin in “Miss Liberty”. Some of my most treasured memories include the many stage productions I did with my folks, the two-woman original cabaret act with my mother called “Mama/Me”, a movie script my dad and I wrote together, a TV pilot I made with my parents, recording in Nashville, and singing at top clubs and concerts around the country. After many years of performing, I took a break to have my baby and raise my son. My dad and I started the Actors and Singers Studio, and I founded All For Love Animal Rescue. Then Richard and I met starring opposite each other in a revival production of “Finian’s Rainbow”, and a new musical journey began. ~ Maripat Davis

Growing up in Hollywood (living for a time across from Paramount Studios and going to middle school down the street from Columbia Pictures) it wasn’t surprising that I found myself working for many years in the corporate finance areas of such iconic studios as MGM and Warner Bros. But Hollywood was also, in my day, one of the centers of the American music industry with nearly all the major record companies having offices within a small radius of Sunset Blvd. and Vine St., including Columbia, RCA, Capitol, MCA and Motown as well as smaller labels like United Artists, Dot and Liberty. And thus, it was no surprise to work, when I was young, in distribution for MCA and Warner-Elektra-Atlantic and even for a major record store chain and indie record store on Hollywood Blvd. that specialized in classical music. What I do find both surprising and exciting is to co-produce along with my singing partner Maripat Davis our first CD. It’s surprising, as an actor in classical and musical theater having performed roles from Shakespeare to Sondheim, to now be a recording artist. Exciting to have this experience with Maripat of sharing our music with a wider audience beyond the intimacy of cabaret venues and to have this recording highlight a journey that began several years ago when she and I played opposite each other in a production of "Finian’s Rainbow". Finally, it’s gratifying to pay homage to some heroes of mine, like Broadway legend Alfred Drake, the star of the 1956 TV musical "The Adventures of Marco Polo" (“Is It You?”) and MGM musical icon Gene Kelly, who sang “Do I Love You?” to Lucille Ball in "DuBarry Was A Lady". Here’s to Love is itself something of an homage to Hollywood, our title tune originally sung by Ewan McGregor and Renee Zellweger in the film "Down With Love", a clever take off on the Doris Day & Rock Hudson films. Of course, Maripat and I wish our parents were alive to see our new musical effort. Hers were professional actors. My mother, an amateur musician, and my father, a radio broadcaster, both instilled in me a love of movies and music. But, as the song says:”Can the tears…Cheers! Here’s to Love!” ~ Richard Osborn
