Trish Causey presents her Concept EP Album ~ LOVE AGAIN ~ proposal to compose & produce 6 songs to music-industry standards & release via all mainstream platforms, featuring mezzo coloratura opera/jazz singer Renée Sokol Huff with special guest artist basso profundo Zachary James.
LOVE AGAIN ~ The Story
Overworked music teacher Magda meets snooty book shop owner Deven through psychic & woo expert Arika. Recently dumped by his wife, Deven swears he is done with love (NEVER AGAIN). Through past-life regression, Magda meets a previous aspect of herself, Ílka, & her lover, Vászul, who dies tragically (ONE LOVE).
Grief-stricken, Ílka puts a curse on all the women in her family line – including Magda – to save them from the pain of a broken heart. Magda feels overwhelming compassion for Ílka & Vászul’s fate & wants to help her ancestors heal from this understandable, but misguided contract that has prevented them all from finding love (VOICES OF THE PAST).

Deven was kicked out of the house by his wife, & now, she has just presented him with divorce papers … on Valentine’s Day … at his business … in front of his customers. He yells at everyone to “Get out!”, & thus begins Deven’s spiraling down into a quagmire of conflicting emotions — wanting love but can he trust Love again?
Singing this emotional rollercoaster of an aria is Zachary James.
