It Might Be Fun

It Might Be Fun is a new and exciting departure for Sandy, an album of all original songs. Back when she and producer Bruce Kimmel were doing Sandy’s first album for Kritzerland, This Christmas, she asked him to write an original song for the album.  That song turned out to be the title song of the album and got a lot of notice. When it was time to do Simply, she again asked him if he had an original for her, and “Simply” became that album’s title song, again getting a lot of airplay and notice. When it came time to decide what the new album was going to be, Sandy suggested a CD with all original songs by Kimmel.   Kimmel has been writing songs since he was a teenager, has written many produced musicals, several of which have cast recordings, wrote the songs for his cult film hit The First Nudie Musical, as well as songs for other films, TV, special material, and the theater.

Sandy felt a real affinity for the chosen songs – her voice sits so lovingly on the music and along with her ability to infuse a lyric with warmth, care, love and humor.  Whether the catchy title song or the rueful “Three Acts” or the funny “Who Do I Have to Blank to Get Out of This Show?” Sandy takes you on a journey that runs the gamut of emotion. The final song on the album, “Two Roads,” is a brand new song receiving its premiere recording, written by Kimmel with the amazing and brilliant Richard M. Sherman of The Sherman Brothers.

The album was recorded in Los Angeles at the legendary Capitol Studios Studio A with a phenomenal 35-piece orchestra. It was arranged, orchestrated and conducted by award-winning musical director Lanny Meyers and produced by Grammy-nominated producer Bruce Kimmel.
