THE JOBRIATH MEDLEY is A GLAM ROCK FAIRY TALE; a lushly-orchestrated musical and spoken word tribute by actress/performer Ann Magnuson to the spectacularly talented glam rocker Jobriath; an artist who was too far out - and OUT - for his time. The Jobriath Medley is an epic thirty-minute EP that combines good old-fashioned storytelling with extraordinarily pretty songs from Jobriath's phantasmagoric catalogue. Think Mother Goose on LSD! Short Q&A with Ann Magnuson: WHY DID YOU MAKE THIS MEDLEY? We made this EP to help expose more people to Jobriath's heartbreakingly beautiful music. We initially created The Jobriath Medley in 1996 to perform in my show "Pretty Songs" because no one wrote prettier songs than Jobriath. My close friend and musical director, Kristian Hoffman - who produced and arranged the EP - agreed. We also believe Jobriath's rise and tragic fall is a cautionary tale that every artist can learn from and ultimately be inspired by. WHY JOBRIATH? Jobriath was openly gay at a time when it was extremely dangerous to be so. Especially in rock 'n roll. This was loooong before Elton John came out. Jobriath himself declared to Rolling Stone magazine at the time, "Bowie pretends to be gay but I am a true fairy!" As a result, his work was shunned by an unforgiving, homophobic culture. But mostly Jobriath's career was destroyed by an excessive amount of HYPE that no one could possibly live up to. This is why his story is one that every creative person, gay or straight, can relate to, because who among us has not lost faith in ourselves because our unique expression was not in step with the marketplace? The message embedded in the lush soundscape of The Jobriath Medley is: Don't let anyone discourage you from expressing yourself! Especially the dreaded marketplace! WHICH JOBRIATH SONGS DO YOU COVER? "Heartbeat", "I'maman", "Blow Away" and, my absolute favorite, "Gone Tomorrow". And the music from all four songs plays under our epic spoken word narration that is woven throughout this fantasy soundscape. We also incorporate hilarious sound effects and many psychedelic musical moments that should make any fan of my previous band, BONGWATER, very happy. WOW! WHO DID THAT PHOTO OF YOU AS JOBRIATH? The stunning cover art for the CD is by artist/photographer Austin Young who created our homage to Jobriath's debut LP by transforming me into a Glam Rock Fairy Pin-Up (with a little Eurasian Pixie Vampire thrown in). What you see here is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg. The actual CD will be an 'eco-wallet' that folds out to reveal a full length gatefold photograph of Ann-as-Jobriath, our version of the original complete with chipped mannequin torso! Travis Pates did the ethereal make-up. IS IT TRUE THAT RUSSELL MAEL FROM SPARKS SINGS ON THE CD? YES! Legendary SPARKS frontman Russell Mael has graciously contributed backing vocals to our track of 'I'maman' and they are GLORIOUS! Russell and his brother, Ron Mael, are glam rock icons as well as iconoclasts who have created amazing music for every decade and we are BEYOND THRILLED to have Russell's beautiful voice on The Jobriath Medley! We are also thrilled to have Jonathan Lea (The Jigsaw Seen) playing all guitars (plus mandolin), Miiko Watanabe on bass and Joseph Berardi on drums. Our spectacular strings were arranged and conducted by Jeff Bruner and additional backing vocals are provided by Lisa Jenio, Kristi Callan and Weba Garretson. The CD was engineered by Mark Wheaton at CATSONIC and the mixing & mastering is by the equally legendary Earle Mankey, also of SPARKS fame (not to mention The Beach Boys)! It's an amazing group of musicians and the result is nothing short of PHANTASMAGORIC! WHY GLAM ROCK? Because glam rock ROCKS!! Plus it's pretty to look at. And it inspires me and fills me with joy every time I listen to it. And that's another reason we made The Jobriath Medley. Because we want Jobriath to inspire everyone else the same way Jobriath first inspired us! Kristian Hoffman and I both bought the Jobriath albums when they first came out in the early 1880s. Uh, I
