Lena Hall to Perform Six Months of Obsessions: From Radiohead to Hedwig
Hall's yearlong musical series Obsessed will celebrate hitting the halfway point with a concert at Public Arts.
SKB Records will celebrate the halfway point of Tony winner Lena Hall's Obsessed series with a special concert, Six Months of Obsessions: From Radiohead to Hedwig, at Public Arts on Wednesday, June 27, at 8pm.
Obsessed features monthly EP and music video releases of Hall's musical tributes to her favorite artists. Hall launched the series in January, beginning with music from Hedwig and the Angry Inch, the rock musical in which she gave a breakout Tony-winning performance as Yitzhak in 2014. Her subsequent EPs have featured the songs of Peter Gabriel, Elton John, the Cranberries, P!nk, and Radiohead.
Obsessed will ultimately consist of 12 EPs, one released on the first Friday of every month. Performance music videos have been created for all 54 songs in the series and a new music video premieres every week in 2018.
The EPs feature Justin Craig on guitar and keyboards; Matt Duncan on bass, keyboards, and saxophone; and Brian Fishler on drums and percussion. The album cover is photographed by Melisa Hall and designed by Stephanie Layton. Each set of videos features a different outfit created by designer Malan Breton. James Eades serves as director of photography.
All six EPs are available at lenahallobsessed.com.
