On Monday, Nov. 30th, 2009 at 1-2 pm ET I will have the distinct honor of interviewing Margie Hauser. Don't know that name? That's OK because you certainly know her music.
Armed with a hot song catalog, Margie Hauser has burst onto the music scene in a startling way. Writing professionally for less than four years, 2008 alone produced 19 published songs. Margie was Music Supervisor and collaborated on most of the music in Alice Upside Down starring Alyson Stoner (Camp Rock) and Lucas Grabeel (High School Musical). Alyson and Lucas each sang two of Margie's songs. Her hit single Higher rose to top 20 on Billboard Dance/Club charts after a ten-week run, setting a career record for 80's pop princess, Tiffany. The follow-up single, Just Another Day was also #1 Billboard breakout and enjoyed an even longer chart appearance. Higher was in the top 10 for 2008 at Perfect Beat!
While voting for this years Grammy awards, as a member of NARAS, Margie saw her own song, Road Of Peace included in the nominating process. The Fall was on Taylor Dayne's album, Satisfied. Something Out Of Nothing was recorded by Lost Tricks and written with Eliot Sloan (Blessid Union Of Souls). Bryce Palisser recorded City To City for his debut album. Some other artists that Margie has recorded with are: Lucas Prada, Chris Korblien, Ace Young, Miriamm, Henri, Eliot Sloan, Chris Doran, Taja Sevelle, Shenkar, and Jaakko.
Because she works best in short, intense, bursts, living in Cincinnati with her husband and four children is an asset for Margie, not a liability. Typically she travels monthly to LA, jamming two or three sessions and meetings a day into a four day trip. She thrives on the creative milieu and fellow collaborators on those trips, but is equally comfortable composing solo at her piano/keyboards at home.
Join us for a fascinating hour as I pick Margie's brain about her writing process, working with the best of the best and balancing all this with being the mother of 4 teenagers!
