notes from ps classics

    
my husband spins fantasies
In November 2000, we started PS Classics. Tommy had been working as a freelance record producer (for Audra McDonald and Dawn Upshaw, among others) since 1989. I'd been working as a professional actor since 1988. We met in 1993, and it was love at first sight. In the late '90s, we thought it would be fun to finally work together, and collaborated on my first solo disc; when the resulting album, Where Do I Go From You?, was completed, we decided to release it ourselves, and created the label "PS Classics" in order to peddle it to retailers. We had no plans to take the label any further. But artists who knew us, and knew our work, brought us albums -- and ideas for albums -- and dreams of albums -- and now, it's seventeen years, nine Grammy nominations, and nearly a hundred discs later. It's been an amazing journey.

As many know, Tommy's been dealing with illness since 2006: an auto-immune disease in the same family as Lupus. It's been an extraordinary challenge for him; since then, he's had to do many recording dates while in awful pain, propped up by medication and will-power. Ironically, because he was forced to dig deeper to power through, because he never knew which project might be his last, he produced what I think are some of his most heartfelt and personal albums, including Follies, Death Takes a Holiday, Yank! and Fun Home. Tommy's kept working since 2006, because nothing has been more restorative than getting to collaborate with these amazing artists, on such glorious material -- but now we need to take some time to focus on his health. PS Classics isn't going anywhere, but for a time, we won't be releasing anything new; we'll simply continue highlighting -- and celebrating -- the many wonderful artists who've come our way, and the phenomenal CDs it's been our honor to release. We have a few upcoming albums planned, but for right now, they're taking a back seat to getting Tommy back on his feet. We thank you, our generous and loyal customers, for joining us on this incredible ride. Without you, without your support, we never would have dared dream so high, or ultimately, accomplish so much. We're so grateful to you all; we shall miss the emails and tweets and posts, but we look forward to seeing you back here when the time is right.
