Listen to "Hand in Hand," featuring Mendez:
The 18-track album is produced by Michael Croiter and Lowdermilk on Yellow Sound Label and will only be released digitally. It includes Kerrigan-Lowdermilk's never-before-recorded tunes such as "My Party Dress," "Avalanche" and "Holding On."
"Kerrigan-Lowdermilk Live" is the result of a promise made to the fans who helped the duo raise $35,000 in their Kickstarter campaign for their first album, "Our First Mistake," overfunding the campaign by $25,000. The team promised to do a concert tour and make a live album with the extra funds. All of the album's tracks come from Kerrigan-Lowdermilk's seven-concert tour entitled "You Made This Tour," which took place at venues across New York and Philadelphia over the course of five months in 2011.
Kerrigan and Lowdermilk's musicals include The Unauthorized Autobiography of Samantha Brown, Tales from the Bad Years and Republic. The songwriting duo was featured in Playbill.com's Contemporary Musical Theatre Songwriters You Should Know.
