DRAMATICALLY DIFFERENT - A Danish Modern Fairytale Dramatically Different is a one-woman show extraordinaire....with music written by Charlie Demos (www.soulfulboi.com) and multi-media and visual effects by Kristen Smart and Jeffrey Grossman, this is a show you MUST see. In the capable hands of Olivia Negron, Anette Norgaard's words, acting and singing truly takes flight. Dramatically Different has been a long way underway like most creative endeavours. Most of the script was written while Anette was working on private yachts and travelling the seven seas from 2004-2006 and then when she arrived in New York it started to really take shape as a collaboration between the many artist involved. It's a show about a Danish girl becoming an American woman and the journeys and trials she travels and conquers to get there. The process has been one of developing friendships between and across cultures and Danes and Americans a like can't wait for this to go up.

CHARLIE DEMOS - Composer There are countless words to describe singer-songwriter Charlie Demos. Vocalist. Lyricist. Pianist. Composer. Producer. Performer. But the one word that sums him up the most is "Charlie." With a purely astounding vocal range, the ambitious and prolific musician is able to fuse his natural affinity of soul and R&B with punchy electro-pop, creating a musical style that is clearly his own.Originally from the "white-bread suburban town" of Fairfield, Connecticut, the multi-talented artist grew up with an eclectic soundscape, including such influences as Mariah Carey, Nina Simone, Anita Baker, Stevie Wonder, Prince, Madonna, George Michael, and traditional Greek and Arab Gypsy music. Since it's release in March 2006, Charlie's debut album has had three chart-topping radio hits. 'Don't Ever Stop,' the album's first single appeared in the highly-acclaimed film, 'A Four Letter Word,' which premiered in May 2007 at the Miami GLBT Film Festival. The 10-song debut album, written and arranged by Charlie with co-production from Grammy Award-winning producer, Tommy Faragher, has been described as 'a smooth ride of jazzy R&B with catchy hooks and bluesy ballads.' With the release of his sophomore album, "How To Be A Boi," Charlie has revolutionized the way we listen to pop music. By seamlessly mixing unique sounds and styles, with help from fearless producers such as Devon Perry and engineers like Faragher, the sonic bartender has concocted a new musical drink for those looking to have fun and dance, or relax and be inspired.
