About the event
ABOUT THE BOOK: This book is a personal journey behind the scenes into the world of music-makers who created the film scores, television music, sound recordings, commercials and concert evenings over the last sixty years.
It's about a long singing career that began in 1960 with concert tours - Ray Conniff, Nat King Cole, and later, solo work in concert with Burt Bacharach - to thirty years of vocals and main titles for The Simpsons, vocals for Family Guy...vocals on hundreds of film & television scores & sound recordings, plus twenty-two years as Choral Director for the Oscars. It's also the personal story of growing up in a "his, hers and theirs" family in the forties and fifties, and how a shy little girl became a second-generation singer in the ever-evolving music business of Hollywood.
ABOUT THE SPEAKER: Sally Stevens is a multi-talented artist with over fifty years of experience in the music industry. She began her career as a music major at UCLA and was produced by Herb Albert and Lou Adler, who later became industry giants. Stevens traveled with Ray Conniff and Nat "King" Cole and sang in productions in Las Vegas before becoming a freelance recording artist and commercial singer in Los Angeles. She worked on TV shows such as "The Carol Burnett Show," "Happy Days," and "Diagnosis Murder," and sang in commercials for major products. Stevens also wrote lyrics for film and television projects and her song "Who Comes This Night?" was included in James Taylor's first Christmas CD.
In addition to her music career, Stevens is also a successful writer and fine art photographer. She has attended summer writing workshops and has had her work published in literary journals and anthologies. As a photographer, she has had several solo exhibits and her work has been displayed internationally. Stevens has also served on the local and national boards of AFTRA and Screen Actors Guild, and is currently a national trustee of the SAG AFTRA Health Fund and the AFTRA Retirement Fund.
Sally Stevens is a versatile artist who has made significant contributions to the music industry, writing, photography, and the entertainment community. Copies of her book I Sang That: A Memoir From Hollywood will be for sale following the presentation.
