Leap Dog Music and danaCreative Are Proud To Announce The “Lives” Project.
Leap Dog Music and danaCreative are proud to announce The “Lives” Project. “Lives” is a two-year creative effort that will consist of four EP’s, four books, four graphic novels, and an extensive online presence for both the project overall as well as the individual lead characters.
The brainchild of musician John Taglieri, “Lives” was born of a series of songs written in early 2009. Taglieri and musical co-writer Brad Whitley, in the midst of writing what was to be the second in a string of EP’s, realized they had a storyline in their latest round of compositions. Taglieri took the storyline idea and proceeded to expand upon it.
Collaborating with storywriter Gil Gonzalez, they formulated the idea of an EP/book combination, with each track on the CD corresponding to each chapter in the book, and both media being released at the same time. Taglieri then contacted long time friend and graphic designer Tony Marchesani, and brought him into the project to handle the production of the graphic novel.
Chronicling the lives of fictional characters Cate Alston and Max Knight, “Lives” follows Cate & Max from their introduction and meeting to various points along their two-year journey of life, and highlights all the ups and downs they experience along the way. Self professed rejects, Max and Cate were always unlucky both in life and in love. Having stumbled into each other’s lives, Cate and Max start a journey of love, discovery, and honest soul searching that takes them across the country and deep into each other’s persona.
The “Lives” Project will consist of four 6-song EP’s, four 6-chapter books & four graphic novels, as well as MySpace, Facebook, Twitter, and Blogger accounts for both Max and Cate. The two main characters will build their own friend and fan bases online to follow them through the project.
The project will release its first installment on June 2nd, 2009, with subsequent releases in October 2009, April 2010 and the final installment in October 2010. The project will have its home on the web at http://TheLivesProject.com.
CDs and books will be available via various retail outlets, and both Taglieri & Gonzalez will be available for interviews and press. Various live shows as well as an in-store book tour will be planned to support the releases.
Press and PR will be handled by Dave Tedder at Head First Entertainment. You can contact Head First Entertainment for all interview and press needs.
