Award-Winning Artist Aoede's New Album Release: "Do You Believe in Magic?" Brilliantly Inventive Fantasy Musical Audiobook for Tweens and Kids at Heart..

San Francisco, CA, September 15, 2015 --( "Do You Believe In Magic?" (DYBIM Aug 21, 2015) is a brilliant, inventive alternative Rock Opera Musical audiobook from award-winning Artist and Playwright Aoede for tweens & all kids at heart who resonate with the fantasy genre (think Percy Jackson meets Into The Woods). Creator Lisa Sniderman does not disappoint. This musical masterpiece takes listeners on a spellbinding journey to the cursed kingdom of Wonderhaven where a muse (Aoede) has a secret & enchanted books & witches break into song. Audiences will embrace the colorful characters, the compelling story, the infectious songs, danceable duets, narration & full musical score.

DYBIM? (along with What Are Dreams Made Of? (WADMO 2013) & Is Love A Fairy Tale? (2012)) was produced, engineered & orchestrated by Aoede's chief collaborator, Scrote (who has worked with Jackson Browne, Van Dyke Parks, Daniel Johnston & The Stripminers). Stellar musicians featured include: Craig Eastman, Peter Adams, Mike Klooster, Tim Young, Isaiah Gage, David Sands, Blair Sinta, Scrote & Aoede/Lisa Sniderman. In addition to the return of narrator Kevin Ponthier (who narrated both WADMO & Is Love A Fairy Tale?) & the spirited David Yow as Luk, the collection includes San Francisco Bay Area musical theater actors, who lend their dynamic voices to the characters. Tracks were recorded in Berkeley, San Francisco & Los Angeles, California. The project was mastered by Rainer Gembalcyzk.

Sniderman says: "I create fantasy musicals and am drawn to young adult stories, adolescent struggles and Greek mythology. My musical stories reflect them, inspiring, entertaining and connecting with young adult audiences, who are underserved musically; encouraging creativity and imaginative play. I wanted to continue Aoede's adventures in Wonderhaven and have always been fascinated with magic. In this story, the magical Kingdom of Wonderhaven is under a malicious memory curse and rapidly losing it's magic. Aoede, the Muse of Song, believes she has no use or magic; yet she is plagued with a big secret and is the only one who can save magic and the Kingdom. It is more than mere fantasy; it is about belief in yourself."

"'Do You Believe in Magic' is one of the most creative musical projects that has come across my desk. It will be featured in my 'Independent Music Magazine' this September. Singer/Songwriter Aoede glistens & writer Lisa Sniderman delights us with her imagery and writing skills. Bravo!" -Tom Lambert, Producer/Presenter, The Independent Music Show
