"Dear Dad" - Uphill Climb (Writing and Design for Musical Theater Showcase)

"Dead Dad," written by BerkleeNYC students Sio Tepper and Patrick Greeley is BerkleeNYC's second release from the Writing and Design for Musical Theater Showcase "Uphill Climb."

The concept for “Dear Dad” started from a conversation about the disconnect between parents and children. The aim was to have the audience connect with the protagonist’s ideals and frustrations, but also be able to empathize with a different perspective. It’s clear that they both have the same moral compass but present it in different ways.

The themes explored in "Dear Dad" were underscored by projection mapping and lighting designers from the Live Experience Design program at BerkleeNYC.

Vérité’s career has always been an exploration of how to create and build outside traditional structures and her experimentation in web3 is a natural progression for an artist who’s always existed outside the lines. A prolific and “spellbinding” (NPR) songwriter, producer and performer, her independently released albums, EPs and singles have garnered 350M+ streams across all platforms with 1M+ monthly listeners. Experimenting in web 3 is a natural extension of her commitment to independence, innovation and direct connection between artists and their fans. Currently, she’s focusing on the intersection of music and tech, community building, production and reimagining music valuation in web 3.

About Power Station at BerkleeNYC

A landmark public-private-nonprofit partnership bringing together Berklee, the City of New York, and musician/investor Pete Muller has been formed to revitalize the historic studio on West 53rd Street most recently known as Avatar Studios. The facility will be renamed Power Station at BerkleeNYC in a nod to the studio’s original name and to the building’s original use to supply power to midtown Manhattan residents.

The recording studios—where artists like Bruce Springsteen, Paul Simon, Tony Bennett, Lady Gaga, David Bowie, Madonna, Herbie Hancock, Esperanza Spalding, Bob Dylan, the cast of Hamilton, and many others recorded iconic albums—will be transformed into a state-of-the-art recording and video production facility for the city’s music, theater, television, and film industries.The building where Power Station is currently housed was a former Consolidated Edison power relay station.
