Julia Murney's "I'm Not Waiting" to Hit Stores in May; Track Listing Announced

News   Julia Murney's "I'm Not Waiting" to Hit Stores in May; Track Listing Announced The debut solo recording from Julia Murney — who is currently starring as Elphaba in the national tour of Wicked — will hit stores May 9 on the Sh-K-Boom Records label.

Entitled "I'm Not Waiting," the 11-track CD was produced by Andrew Lippa, recorded and mixed by Grammy winner Joel Moss and features musical direction by Tom Kitt and Stephen Oremus.

In a statement, producer/composer Lippa said, "Since the first day we met, Julia and I have had a musical connection which, to non-musicians, is hard to describe. She's a profoundly gifted artist with a limitless range of emotions, a commanding presence, and an artistry that turns lyrics into literature, belting into bliss, music into miracles. In fact, I never have to rehearse with Julia when I've written something new for her. She just knows how to sing it. It's almost as if she's writing the song as she's singing it. She's inspiring."
