Yesterday I had the awesome pleasure of interviewing Joan Osborne. We talked on the phone 25 minutes.

I’m so psyched the interview is up already, ENJOY:

Joan’s the headline act at Maplewoodstock this Sunday. Information is in the article. It’s a free show.


Also, yesterday, another extremely rewarding part of my career, I got to interview several young local performers who will be appearing at New Jersey’s Paper Mill Playhouse. Check it out, they’re adorable:

I had such a blast talking to the kids. This was in person at Keane University.

Busy day yesterday! Today I’m taking time off — much deserved!

On Phone w/Joan (Osborne), Come in Quietly

Published July 11, 2013 by Maryanne


Joan Osborne is headlining at this gig Maplewoodstock in the town of Maplewood.

Last week I wanted to interview her to promote the show and didn’t hear anything, so I wrote the article without the interview:

Then today I got a call from her management. My email request to interview Joan got lost in the shuffle. Since the concert is Sunday I had to do the phone interview tonight and was so happy Joan was able to commit to it! The time for the interview was 7:30 p.m. — around the time my husband would be getting home. Since he doesn’t use a cell phone (yeah, the two of us live in the dark ages) and he had already left from work, I left the above note on the door (along with other instructions that I already fed the cats) so he’d come in quietly.

So I’m on the phone and he’s shuffling around making sure the little cat, Derick, the loud, needy one, is quiet. Now that’s what I call team work!

Joan Osborne was a great interview! She first said she only had 10/15 minutes, but we talked about 25. That was super cool of her. I’m all in awe and giddy. I wrote the article already and it’s a healthy read of 700 words!

Stay tuned for the interview/article, which should be live tomorrow or Saturday the latest.
