OUR FIRST MISTAKE is Kerrigan-Lowdermilk's first album. It brings critically acclaimed and diverse artists from pop music and musical theater together onto one album. It spans styles and defies easy classification, illustrating Kerrigan-Lowdermilk's core philosophy that a good song is good in any genre. Guests on the new CD include Michael Arden (The Times They Are A Changin'), Matt Doyle (Bye Bye Birdie), Meghann Fahy (Next To Normal), Jay Armstrong Johnson (Hair, On the Town), Morgan Karr (Spring Awakening), Kelli O'Hara (The Light In The Piazza, The King and I), Laura Osnes (South Pacific, Cinderella) and Natalie Weiss (Everyday Rapture). The album also feature performances by recording artists Katie Thompson, Vienna Teng, and The Spring Standards, and drum programming by Daniel Imana of The Tryptics.
