Conrad Korsch released his debut singer-songwriter CD "LIVE LOVE LEAVE" in late 2009 through his SCRUMPTIOUS MUSIC label. This intimate and haunting collection of original compositions showcases Conrad on lead vocals and a variety of musical instruments alongside his roles as producer/engineer and string arranger/conductor.
Immediately following its release, the album's first track "I'M LEAVING" was used in an episode of the USA Network's popular TV show "ROYAL PAINS", which has since gone into international syndication. A sold-out concert at famed NYC venue "Joe's Pub", featured slot in the Cape May Singer-Songwriter Festival (which chose the album track "WEEPING WILLOW" as the opening track for its 2010 compilation CD), and tour dates in England, Germany, and Norway followed soon after. Upon return to the USA, Conrad's live performance of his song "FIREFLY", featuring a duet with KRISTINA TRAIN, was aired in repetition during the memorial segments of the 2010 Jerry Lewis/MDA Telethon. The album version of the same song, featuring a duet with ROSANNE CASH, inspired an original ballet piece choreographed by Andrea Kramer which premiered at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center as part of "The Butterfly Project", a children's cancer charity.
Conrad's second album, which will showcase yet another side of his musical personality, is currently in production scheduled for a 2014 release.
Also available from SCRUMPTIOUS MUSIC is Emily Kinney's (Beth Greene on AMC's "The Walking Dead") debut EP "Blue Toothbrush", co-written and produced by Conrad Korsch.
