Single, The Musical

Leah Levine seriously needs to get over her ex boyfriend. She is thirty-six years old and single. How did she get here?

At twenty, Leah began a career in pop music and had a huge hit song... but the record company told her they didn’t want her singing her own material and that she should lose some weight. Oy!

Devastated, Leah decided she could succeed without playing their game. Maybe she did that too well? She gave up her music to study family law and while she became a highly successful divorce attorney, protecting and shepherding women through contentious divorces, the process has taken it's toll on Leah, and she has become more and more suspicious of men.

Still... Leah longs for love and music and so she writes. She writes searingly honest and quirky songs about her feelings and relationships that stir the soul.

As a lawyer, Leah can kick ass in court, but as a performer, she is not able to bring herself to sing her own songs in front of an audience.

Seeking help, she finds Gabriel Weston, a faded 90’s pop star with baggage and quirks of his own.

Will she love again? Will she perform?

Karen's musical 'Therapy Rocks' at the New York Musical Theatre Festival - Review

Write about what you know. Write about what you’ve experienced. Embellish to make it entertaining and enlightening. Karen Bishko has done just that in her new pop, soft rock inspired musical “Therapy Rocks” and she has supplied the music and lyrics to some ironic, touching and memorable songs.

What they are saying

'"Humourous, tragic and engaging, Karen's lyrics are nothing short of shit hot. Her music is from the heart and will speak to a whole generation." Jason Orange, Take That

"The most important female singer/songwriter in Britain today: I am a massive fan of Karen Bishko, her stories are more entertaining than any fem-pop I've heard for years. The USA has Rickie Lee Jones and Jenny Lewis: Notting Hill has Karen'." Billy Reeves, BBC London 94.9
 
"Her lyrics are by far the best on myspace" Nick Heyward
