More Info

Neil Hamburger presents a new work from the songwriting team ofGregg Turkington and Erik Paparozzi. ‘Seasonal Depression Suite’ isan album-based musical, sung by an all-star cast whose voicesembody various guests stuck in a perfectly average chain-hotel,wallowing in self-pity and paranoia, re-living personal catastrophesboth real and imagined, or simply trying to use the hotel vendingmachine. Expert music played by an all-star band, to boot.  This song-cycle is filtered through the lens of various guests stuck ina perfectly average chain hotel during the holiday season, wallowingin self-pity and paranoia, re-living personal catastrophes both real andimagined, or simply trying to use the hotel vending machine. Themusical tapestry woven by Paparozzi and Turkington draws from thestage musicals, pop vocal albums, film scores, rock concept albums,new wave mini-masterpieces, and singer songwriter epics that havecaptured their imaginations since childhood, in pitch-perfect supportof their fictitious hotel guests and their tormented concerns.  To sing these parts, a once-in-a-lifetime all-star cast was assembled -including Neil Finn (Split Enz, Crowded House, Fleetwood Mac),Annabella Lwin (Bow Wow Wow), Alan Bishop (Sun City Girls),Bonnie Prince Billy, acclaimed singer / performance artist PuddlesPity Party, voice actress Natalie Peyser, J.P. Hasson (Pleaseeasaur),enigmatic vocalist (and Frank Sinatra’s granddaughter) A.J. Lambert,Paparozzi himself and, of course, Neil Hamburger.
