Goldrich and Heisler have provided original songs for The Disney Channel, Disney Interactive and Feature Animation projects, Disney Theatricals, PBS, and Nickelodeon. As performers, they have toured domestically and internationally, presenting their music at some of the finest venues, including Carnegie Hall, Canada’s “Juste Pour Rire” comedy festival and the Kennedy Center. Raved The Village Voice, “[They] have been turning out smart lyrics and sophisticated melodies for some time. Keep in mind they’re the ones whose nifty love song rhymed ‘quesadilla’ with ‘IKEA.’” Kristin Chenoweth popularized their song, “Taylor, the Latte Boy,” performing it on The Today Show, The Rosie O’Donnell Show, and in concert at Carnegie Hall, the Metropolitan Opera House, and the White House. November 2009 marked the release of MARCY AND ZINA: The Album on Yellow Sound Label, and their Songbooks Volumes 1 and 2 are available from Hal Leonard. A number of new theatrical projects are in the works, including an adaptation of the tale of Snow White and Rose Red and a musical version of Freakin Fabulous, based on the bestselling book by author and stylemaker Clinton Kelly of TLC’s What Not To Wear.
