EPA’s for the tour are under way, so City Audition thought we’d give you a head start on this indie pop treat. Sara Bareilles’ music falls squarely in the pop world of the 2000’s and 2010’s. I’ve included a few of her lesser known gems below, as well as some pieces by other artists to help you get your search started. All of this music is fun, but try to pick a piece that shows off your vocal range. Be sure to demonstrate story telling or an emotional arc similar to the character you’re auditioning for.
1. Chasing the Sun (Sara Bareilles)
2. Machine Gun (Sara Bareilles)
3. Bluebird (Sara Bareilles)
4. Uncharted (Sara Bareilles)
5. City (Sara Bareilles)
6. Raise Hell (Brandi Carlile)
7. Light Me Up (Ingrid Michaelson)
8. Send My Love (To Your New Lover) (Adele)
9. Sweeter (Gavin DeGraw)
10. Marry Me (Train)
11. Faster (Matt Nathanson)
12. Beautiful Disaster (Jon McLaughlin)
I can't believe that June is nearly over, especially since I'm due to have a baby-- my second!-- in early July. This means that I'll have to take a break from The City Audition for the foreseeable future.
You haven't experienced it yet, but this business is awful.
I went down the Fosse rabbit hole the other night on You Tube. "Rich Man's Frug" had shuffled up on my iPhone, and I realized I needed a Fosse fix. Fosse, the revue, isn't done that often anymore, but this list of audition songs will work for just about any Fosse show.
