ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
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.

Mary Scott

Refreshingly unique!
This versatile album, with splendid music, lyrics, and vocals, has a universal appeal to the human heart. At the same time, one senses a personal glimpse into the artist's soul. The more you listen, the more you want to hear it again and again. It's my favorite CD!

Mica

A true masterpiece!
I absolutely love this album, great vocals and music, a true masterpiece. Thank you, Conrad, for making such a great CD.

Live Love Leave
You absolutely have to listen to this CD two or three times. At first, it's a bit overwhelming that such a sweet, soulful voice comes out of Korsch. My son (who just returned from Iraq with the Army got it on the first listen). I guess his vulnerability emotionally put him on a level to understand the the deep meaning and metaphores put forward on this disc. I expect that this CD will continue to sell well; as it is a rare find.

Live Love Leave
Conrad is a not only a very talented musician, but also singer-songerwriter and this CD proves just that. This CD is different from what I expected. You notice new subtleties with each listen. This album is filled with charm, warmth and slightly melancholy grandeur, with an overlying theme of genuine simple honest emotion. Compassionate humour gurantees a memorable journey. A definite "must-have"!

Conrad is not only a very talented musician, but has also proven to be an accomplished singer-songwriter as evidenced by his latest CD, Live Love Leave. This CD is very different from what one might have expected from this artist given his extensive training in the jazz field. Instead it incorporates poetic lyrics with charm, warmth and an inner sadness. Each time I listen I acquire an even more appreciation of this artist’s talents. Well worth taking the time to sit and listen to the lyrics. Highly recommend!

Shut yourself up in a room with headphones and LISTEN...lyrics ,arrangements and vocals come together as a whole ,treating the listener to an intimate ,romantic experience but which is fresh with dew
not a bad track on the album but my personal favorite is the gem-like "small " cut " Where "

LIVE LOVE LEAVE
This is one of the most inventive and soulful albums I've heard in a long time. Conrad Korsch is a master of every aspect of songwriting. Great melodies, meaningful lyrics, interesting harmonies and VERY unique ideas about instrument combinations. His string arranging is expert. He could do just THAT as a career, so the fact that he can do SO much else is quite astonishing.

My favorite song is "The Last Sad Song". The chords and melody to this song are gut-wrenching. The arrangement is sublime. The way it builds up at the line, "Oh happiness, where have you gone" is incredibly powerful. It's my favorite moment from this CD.

My other favorite moment is the appearance of Roseanne Cash's gorgeous voice in "Firefly". Korsch brilliantly has her enter toward the end of the song which gives the song a spiritual lift that is surreal. The arrangement on this one could be Conrad's best on the CD.
