Welcome to a new branch of From Inspiration To Stage, where we get to meet some of the great up and coming/established composers of the Australian Musical Theatre scene! In this first "Composer Spotlight" podcast, Drew interviews Jye Bryant, a composer based in Sydney, who has found success with his musicals The Things I Could Never Tell Steven and The Velveteen Rabbit. Hear exclusive songs from Jye's shows and get behind the mind of this amazing Aussie theatre composer.
It's the age-old question: which comes first? In this episode, Drew calls on four of Australia's musical theatre composers to answer it, including Cal Siberstein, Caitlyn Burt, Peter J Casey and Jye Bryant. Together they explore the role of music and lyrics and the process in how a song comes to be created. The podcast also features songs from "Fairybread", "Ferdinand", "The Things I Could Never Tell Steven", "The Bubble", and an exclusive unreleased track from Drew.
