what the critics are saying

“Bucchino possesses a singular voice and an absolute integrity of expression.”
–The New York Times

“Like Sondheim, John writes both music and words with a pen that can pierce the heart.... This is a life-affirming, thought-provoking collection. Applause all around.”
–Talkin' Broadway

“Let's all be grateful for It's Only Life, which not only provides an outlet for the breadth of John Bucchino's singular songwriting but doubles as a great vocal showcase for Brooks Ashmanskas, Andréa Burns, Gavin Creel, Jessica Molaskey, and Billy Porter.”

It's Only Life
A New Musical Revue
Music & Lyrics by John Bucchino

Songwriter John Bucchino’s powerful and uplifting new musical revue features five extraordinary Broadway vocalists – Brooks Ashmanskas, Andréa Burns, Gavin Creel, Jessica Molaskey and Billy Porter – performing a moving collection of both familiar and new compositions. Reviewing the show for The New York Times, Stephen Holden noted that Bucchino “occupies a special niche” among his contemporaries: “[His] flowing, finely made piano ballads describe an urban single life in which relationships come and go in cycles of yearning, fulfillment, heartbreak and healing,” where romantic love is anticipated with “high expectations, high anxiety and open hearts.”

IT'S ONLY LIFE also includes seven transitions that serve to link the songs. Although space constraints prevented us from including them on the CD, they are available for free download here. To save, right click and "Save Target As."
