Raves, Rants, Reviews

“So enjoying your CD. I love the way you write and deliver a song. What a gift. Thank you so much for being in the world to tell us these stories through song.” — Nita Whitaker LaFontaine

“Your music and songwriting have inspired me to become the person I am today.” — Alexzandra, Stockholm, Sweden

“Just wanted to say I enjoyed your CD concert immensely. Your tender, sensitive and spontaneous rendition of all your material was a remarkable example of your rare talents. A real treat for me.” — Dana White

“Lada and I wish to Congratulate you on the Awesome Lyrics for the StarKey Song! We were overcome with JOY hearing you sing the special words you chose. You’re truly Wonderful, Harriet!” — Matthew and Lada

“In Yiddish theatre, which is referenced in the play we do together, audience members were told they could get their money back if they didn’t both laugh and cry at the performance. No one would have asked for their money back after your CD release concert.” — David Proval

“The listener is allowed into deeply personal-universal places and leaves with greater understandings of him/her-self as well as you and the subjects you write about. You really love people, and that's very cool!” — Leslie Welles

“Harriet’s a brilliant comedian who introduces each of her songs with a hilarious, bracingly honest back story that gives the people in the dark a little insight on how great songs are created.” — Julie Davis

“It’s really brilliant how you came up with these [songwriting] steps. Just a great, GREAT, idea.” — Denise Rosier

“Even stronger than my desire to write songs is my gratitude to be able to work on it at this point in my life. You have kept me going and are the best teacher I ever had or will have.” — Marian Weiner

“I learned that my most powerful songs truly do come from my real life experiences and that when I share my feelings, in song, I am able to heal myself.” — Cynthia Land

A Great Start!


A Great Start!

Hi Everybody,

The movie project, HOLLYWOOD TOWN - The Harriet Schock Story, has officially taken flight and it is off to a great start.

Hopefully, you've been reading about it in previous emails and now the day has come for friends and fans of yours truly to visit Indiegogo and see, first hand, what it's about. Here's the link:

The Indiegogo Campaign for Hollywood Town - The Harriet Schock Story

Watch the full 5-minute version of the video and you'll get the details--and be entertained in the process. You might recognize some of the faces there. It might be your face! : )

Then look at the list of "Perks" on the right side and see if there is something there that interests you. Click on the NAME of the Perk to see a full description.


The game is to get as much in on the first day as possible and, as you will see, we are doing really well. The the number of people participating is importanat and the $ amount is also important. Anything you can do to help boost those two numbers will be very much appreciated.

If a substantial amount is raised at the outset, there is a good chance that Indiegogo will take notice and feature this campaign on their website. That opens it up to a much wider audience.


Friends who back this project in the first 24 hours--with any $ amount, large or small--will have your names included on an HONOR ROLL that acknowledges your special friendship and support!

This HONOR ROLL will be prominently displayed on the Harriet Schock Website. It will be included in the Film Credits. And these individuals will be Special Guests at the Premiere of the Film.

Producer/Director, Tom Solari, has done a marvelous job of putting this together and now we have an opportunity to contribute to the effort.

And for me, I can't imagine anything more fun and more supportive of my continuing goals than this movie.

I look forward to hearing from each of you about this. All ideas are welcome.

All the best,

The Harriet Schock Story

When the time came to launch the 30-day Indiegogo Crowd Funding Campaign for the production of a movie about Harriet Schock, her music and her career, a very special group of friends jumped on board, raising a full 60% of the funding goal within the first 24 hours!

It is to them that this HONOR ROLL is dedicated. Their names will appear in the CREDITS OF THE FINISHED FILM and they will be SPECIAL GUESTS AT THE FILM’S PREMIERE.

We thank as well those backers who wish to remain anonymous.
