I.M.L.A. – A MUSICAL GRAPHIC NOVEL

This episode of Big Blend Radio’s Champagne Sundays show features Mae Edwards, a composer, multi-media mixologist, and creator of I.M.L.A. a musical graphic novel and screenplay. Listen to the interview here in the YouTube player or download the podcast on Podbean.com or SoundCloud.com.

IMLA is the hero’s journey of Shylene Steele and is a story about friendship. Four young LGBTQ women of color make their way to Los Angeles from the Deep South, dreaming of hitting the big time and changing the world. Their adventures in Hollywood have them meeting a mystical mentor, a gender non-conforming ally, and shadowy enemies along the way. Featuring 10 of Mae’s new musical compositions, I.M.L.A. stars the voice acting of Fiona Rene (she played Detective Kara Lee on ABC’s hit series STUMPTOWN) and features the illustrations of Disney veteran and Oscar-nominated Amy Duarte.

”It’s my love letter to Los Angeles, for better or for worse. I’m L.A.” Mae Edwards

Along with music, Mae’s other beloved creative passion is video editing.  She has edited long and short-form films, dozens of documentaries and was a staff editor for the DISNEY Network FREEFORM.  Mae’s numerous awards spanning her 28-year career in the edit bay include an EMMY, a PRO MAX Silver, 8 TELEs, and numerous film festival top honors.

Mae’s philosophy towards art remains dedicated to realizing there’s little separation of expression, from one art form to the other. The path of the artist is to expand our awareness, helping us to see colors in a musical phrase and to help us hear an emotion musically, so as to elevate a scene on your screen.  The job of an artist is to FEEL and then to share with others that feeling through our artistry.  And by doing so, the artist uplifts society, helping one another feel less alone.

Mae is donating 75% of each I.M.L.A  digital download/CD sold to TheTrevorProject.org, in recognition of the struggles suffered in our community. More at http://maeedwards.com/
