Old-school cabaret with a modern sensibility, On The Edge is a delicious cocktail of classic standards and contemporary pop that’s been shaken vigorously and served with a savory garnish of sassiness.
An eclectic mix of tunes from great American composers such as Cole Porter, Richard Rodgers, and Stephen Sondheim as well as modern day songwriters like Rufus Wainwright, George Harrison, and Lady Gaga, Winston Gieseke’s debut recording beautifully captures the dynamic unpredictability of his live stage shows.

An infectious, vintage-sounding collection of American standard classics, largely from the early decades of the 20th Century. Creighton, a young, veteran song and dance man of the Broadway stage, will have listeners tapping their toes and crooning along!

Gloria Loring, best known as the former “Liz Chandler” on “Days of Our Lives,” is releasing a new CD, “By Request,” that was created in response to email requests from around the world. While Gloria was on “Days,” she was consistently voted in the top ten most popular actresses in daytime TV. The widespread use of the Internet and email has given fans a direct link to artists such as Ms. Loring, making it easier to get questions and requests answered. This CD is the outcome of that direct access.
The song list was assembled from dozens of requests which began, “I loved the song you sang called… Did you ever record it?” Gloria kept having to say, “no, I didn?t record that one.” She noticed that many of the same songs kept getting requested again and again. She compiled a list of the most requested songs and sent an email asking fans to vote for their favourites. The winners are contained on her CD “By Request”.
“By Request” has been released by her own record company, Silk Purse Productions, and is distributed by LMLMusic and via her web site, www.glorialoring.com
