Suzanne Buirgy

Suzanne Buirgy has an impressive history as a performer. At 16 years of age, she performed in the long-running hit musical revue, “A 5-6-7-8.”

She then auditioned for and was accepted into the prestigious Los Angeles Civic Light Opera Musical Theater Workshop, and then went on to play the principal role of Edith in the first national touring company of The New York Shakespeare Festival’s The Pirates of Penzance alongside Pam Dawber, Andy Gibb, and Jim Belushi. Buirgy also wrote and performed in an original musical called The Story Goes, which played at the Tamarind Theater in Hollywood, CA.

Buirgy started writing songs at the tender age of 10. She performed extensively in Los Angeles clubs including The Troubadour, The Whiskey, At My Place, and Café Largo, first as a solo artist, then as a member of the all-girl band The Riveters, and finally as part of the duo, All She Wrote. Her career really took off after winning the prestigious “New Folk” award at the Kerrville Folk Festival in Texas. From there she went on to play well-known venues and festivals all across the United States. Buirgy has written, performed, and co-produced three albums as a solo artist. Most recently, she was thrilled to have a song placed in an episode of the second season of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.

Given her roots in musical theater and the wealth of experience she gathered as a touring singer-songwriter, it made sense that Buirgy would eventually bring her creative skills to filmmaking. For a number of years, she has juggled her music career with her role as a Producer at Dreamworks Animation. During her tenure there she has been an Associate Producer on How to Train Your Dragon, the Co-Producer on Kung Fu Panda 2, Producer on HOME, with Rihanna, Jim Parsons, and Steve Martin, and most recently, Producer of the movie Abominable, with Chloe Bennet, Eddie Izzard, and Sarah Paulson, which was released in September 2019. She is a member of the Producers Guild and was accepted into the Motion Picture Academy in 2019.

Looking ahead, Buirgy is very excited to have time to focus on her musical, Evidence, along with several other creative projects she has in the works. She is also really looking forward to playing her songs for audiences again.

Steve Seskin
www.steveseskin.com
Postponed until 2021.

Steve Seskin is a successful songwriter who has written seven number one songs, including Grammy-nominated “Grown Men Don’t Cry,” recorded by Tim McGraw, and “Don’t Laugh at Me,” winner of NSAI Song of the Year and Music Row Magazine Song of the Year in 1999 as recorded by Mark Wills. His other #1 hits are “No Doubt About It” and “For a Change,” both recorded by Neal McCoy, “No Man’s Land” and “If You’ve Got Love,” both recorded by John Michael Montgomery, and “Daddy’s Money,” recorded by Ricochet.

Other chart toppers include “I Think About You,” recorded by Collin Raye, and “All I Need To Know,” recorded by Kenny Chesney. The video for Raye’s “I Think About You” single was named the Academy of Country Music’s Video of the Year in 1997, and the song and video were also given an award by the Tennessee Task Force Against Domestic Violence.

In 2014, Steve was nominated to the NSAI Hall of Fame. Recent recordings of his songs include “Pictures,” by John Michael Montgomery, “We Shook Hands,” by Tebey, and “I’ll Always Be There For You,” by Brian McComas, “This Too Shall Pass,” by Sinclair and “Standing Still”, “Proof”, “Lift You Up” and “Electricity” by Seth Glier.

While Steve is best known for writing hits, he is also a successful performer and recording artist. His 20th album, Some Sunsets, released in 2014, is filled with inspiring, hopeful songs, and features Steve and the talented Julia Sinclair. “Don’t Laugh at Me” was recorded by Peter, Paul and Mary and became the impetus for the Operation Respect/Don’t Laugh at Me project, a curriculum designed to teach tolerance in schools. This program has already been implemented in more than 20,000 schools across the country. Steve now enjoys performing at school assemblies in support of this program. The song is now available as a children’s book, Don’t Laugh At Me, which was featured on PBS’s Reading Rainbow in September 2002.

Steve is also an active keynote speaker and songwriting teacher for the West Coast Songwriters Association, the Nashville Songwriters Association International, the Swannanoa Gathering, and the Song School at Rocky Mountain Folks Festival, and several NETN events. He has also been the director of the Kerrville Songwriter’s School since 2012.
