Notes from the songwriter about Cinderella Falling…

Inspiration for writing a song often comes from a compilation of interesting life stories, and Cinderella Falling is no exception. When I first wrote the song several years ago, I was dating an ER doctor and also working as a music teacher in the projects of Troy, New York. My office was actually an old shower stall! The extreme contrast of these two worlds coupled with the parodies of communication challenges lead to the writing of the song, which ultimately lead to the making of the Cinderella Falling music video. Often the best art is born from a collaboration of creative minds coming together. This has certainly been the case, not only in the audio recording of Cinderella, but also in the making of the music video, which I hope you will take the opportunity to watch. I welcome your comments and hope that you enjoy!

Cinderella Falling is the first single from the long-awaited “Distant Thunder” album by Margaret Bernstein, which will be released in 2010. Margaret’s previously released CD, “Bricks in the Wall” (which also contains a music video DVD), is also available on CDBaby.
