    Dear Bridget,

    We haven’t met, but I’m a songwriter in NY and would like to speak with you about collaborating on a project I’m working on. Specifically, I’ve been asked to write songs for a graphic novel about a rock band. The first installation of this novel will come with a 5-7 song CD of the fictional band’s album. The producer, Bill Bossung, is based in Las Vegas, and is paying the album cost.

    In any event, I’d love to talk with you about this if you’re interested. I’m in California till the end of this month, then in NYC for a bit.

    So that you may know a bit about me, I’ve pasted my bio below.

    Thanks very much and I hope to speak with you sometime soon.

    Ben Toth

    BEN TOTH (Composer) —

    Recently completed composing a movie musical for Ripfest8. Upcoming: an evening of original songs directed by Richard J. Alexander (director for Barbra Streisand); the MacDowell Colony’s centennial celebration (lyrics by Pulitzer Prize winner Paul Muldoon); and a radio-musical with Nell Benjamin (Broadway’s Legally Blond) performed and recorded at the Museum of Television and Radio in February 2007.

    Past and current collaborators: Leon Russell (“Superstar”), John DiNicola (“I’ve Had the Time of my Life”), and Mark D. Sanders (“I Hope You Dance”).

    Hi Bridget,
    I just want to say you are a really great influence. Since we met in May I’ve taken all your great advice and put it into writing. You are truly a great writer, artist and person. Please stay in touch.

    Hi Bridget,
    Wow girl…what a rush seeing you doing so great. I talked to Ray yesterday and he told me about your success. Congrats to you!
    I dug thru some stuff and found an old picture of you and I. You were beautiful then and from your photo here you’ve only gotten better. I also found an old Dreamers ticket stubb…”Friday, Feb. 13th, 1981–El Paseo”. The Pranks opened the show. God almighty…almost 26 years ago…my how time flies.
    I hear you just bought a horse. Good for you. I have an arab mare…she’s kind of a pain in the ass, but I love her. If your interested…my brother is one hell of a horseman. He lives in Arcadia and is riding at Santa Anita but does much more with horses than just ride races. He and his wife do lots of riding off the track as well as buy and sell horses.

    Anyway, hope you get this…I’d love to talk sometime. I’ll likely make a trip south sometime in ’07. I’d love to see ya.

    All my love to you and the entire family. You guys all hold a special place in my heart.

    Love, Donnie

    I was just wondering where it is possible to get your song Everything Changes, my friend really wants to play the song at her wedding, i am from Ireland, i have looked all over the net and what not and dont seem to be able to locate it, any help would be greatly appreciated!

    I have the same question as the person above. I am desperately trying to find the song Everything Changes and it is no where to be found on the web. Where can I go about to get this song or download it?

    Dear Bridget,

    Hi! I’m someone else who’d like to know how I could get a copy of the CD with your song “Everything Changes,” or where I could find a file of it, etc. I have loved the song ever since I heard it on Dawson’s Creek in #2-21 “Ch…Ch…Ch…Changes…” (and yes, I do know pretty much every Dawson’s Creek episode title and number off the top of my head). I used to listen to the song often when it was accessible for streamed audio, and I very much regret not buying the CD when it was available — I’ve looked everywhere online to find it, but I can’t. Right now all I have is a 50-second clip of it I was able to find.

    It’s such a moving song; it really touches me, and is something that both resonates with me emotionally and also comforts me. Every year around the spring I start to really miss the song, because it was in the spring of 1999 when I first heard it on Dawson’s Creek. :) Please help!

    Hey Bridget,

    firstly i just want to say you write some amazing songs. I hope that one day we’ll be able to hear them all on one disk.
    Next…. is quite the coincidence considering the last few post. i too am looking for “Everything changes” in hope of playing it at a funeral. A good friend of mine past away recently and was very fond of the track from dawsons creek too.
    As i have read from the def leppard site, the album that listed this track was only a demo. Is there anyway for me to find this track soon?

    i hope everything is well, thanks

    Dear Bridget,

    I heard a preview of a song you wrote called “Trust Myself.” I liked it a lot. Will it be released as a single?

  13. May 21st, 2007 | 12:52 am

    Hi Bridget,
    I know your brother Jesse and his kids. I’ve been playing children’s music in S.B. for 20 years. He was telling me abut you so I’m checking out your site. Looks like you’ve got people loving your music. Way to go. Just wanted to say hi. Putnee.

    To those of you Everything Changes fans, you wouldnt believe I did this but I loved the song so much and I have no access to hearing it on the web…when the episode of Dawsons Creek was on that has the song I actually held my phone up to the tv with the recorder and recorded it. It sounds very muffley but its all I have =( Please is there any other way of getting the song?

  15. June 21st, 2007 | 3:03 am

    Hey Bridget, I used to kick around SB with Jesse in about’75, hung around your house and played music back then.
    Congratulations on your success.
    I still play drums in Colorado now, after living in Austin Tx. I’ve recorded many of my own originals, and am working on more.Any tips from a
    GREAT songwriter?
    You can check out Jambase.com and look for 3in the Morning to see what I’m doing these days.
    Anyway, carry on.

    Bridget, it’s been a while. I was playing my acoustic guitar tonight and thought about the time we were at your place working on a song or something. It made me wonder what your doing these days. I’ve sort of lost touch with Oconnor but I’m doing really good out in Seattle. I’m mixing an album for the non-profit band Jubilee who donates a portion of their proceeds to an organization called IJM (Internation Justice Mission) They fight forced child prostitution around the world and lots of other stuff too. The singer has a really unique voice kinda like Jeff Buckley did. Thought I might turn you on to it http://www.livejubilee.org Are you writing a lot? Are you still battling the Korg keyboard? What did you do for the 4th of July?

  17. July 30th, 2007 | 2:57 pm

    Hello Bridget,

    I would be greatly honored for the opportunity to co-write with you. Please advise at your earliest convenience. Thank you.

    Hi Bridget, I am a british writer & wondered if you would allow me to send a couple of ideas / tracks which perhaps you would consider co writing with me. I write mainly in a Tiner Turner / Cher style of female track. Is that ok for you ? Baz

  20. September 18th, 2007 | 11:05 pm

    Can I be in your fan club? Oh, I already am! (since 1985 I might add!)
    You rock sister!!!
    Love ya!

  21. October 18th, 2007 | 7:04 pm

    a friend sent along the Emmy Cd and I see your name on “Slow Me Down”…what a great great song!!

    Bring us some more stuff for Nate Sallie. We enjoy getting them played on the radio!

  23. October 21st, 2007 | 9:53 pm

    Hi Bridget,
    I’m from the Dreamers days. I went to a potluck last night for my daughter’s singing club group and your name came up. It was at Mark’s house in Summerland. I’m so impressed with your strength. I know you’ve had some challenging times and its inspirational to hear that you just milled through it and came out shining. I love the fact that you wrote songs on a mail route.

    BTW—both of my daughters compete to see who can sing Breakaway the loudest and most often. Mark told me last night that you co-wrote it! Congratulations on your hit. When my girls and I hear it in the car, we all go for it, but they get annoyed ’cause I keep jumbling up the words. Thank god I have them both there to set me straight.

    Even though you’re focused on writing, I hope you still perform from time to time. I miss your voice. Think you might be up at Soho again one of these days?
    Email me and let me know.

    Take care and keep smiling,

  24. Jenna

    Hi Bridget, like so many of your fans I am also seeking a CD or mp3 of Everything Changes. I would be so grateful if someone could help me out with it! I love that song SO much, and it’s about time I returned that Dawson’s Creek DVD to the store so someone else can watch it!!

  25. November 1st, 2007 | 11:47 pm

    Hey Bridget!

    I know this is so random, but we met years ago either through your bro Jesse, Eric Eisenberg or some other SB veteran(my old band in the Alex’s days was Circus Frequency). Anyway, congrats on all your success!!! I have really enjoyed hearing your music out there. I’ve gotten a few tunes in a few flicks and tv shows myself, but wondered if I could pick your brain sometime? Don’t want to get into too many details here, but if you have some time connect, please shoot me a quick email.

    ALL the best 2 u,

    Kirstin Candy

    Hi Bridget………this is Ken, a long time fan of yours. I used to play keyboards with Mystique and other groups at PCDC when you were fronting the Dreamers. Anyway, I’m up in SLO these days playing with other groups, but still record down in Santa Barbara from time to time, and play up and down the coast.

    Just wanted to say hi and bring up some good memories!

    Bridget, my god girl!

    I don’t know how I stumbled upon this page but when I did I was so happy to see that you had continued with your music endeavors.

    Do you remember who I am? I took a lot of photos of you and The Dreamers back in the day. I still have some of them and some old cassettes from those early recordings at Love Studios.
    When I found you I continued to searc and found your brothers, Perry and Jesse. I see they also are still at it with The Tearaways. Good to see.

    I listened to your recent songs, great stuff. I had never realized that you had written all the Dreamers songs back then, what a talent you have proven to be. Someday I won’t be surprised to see you accept a Grammy, or two.

    Just wanted to say hello. I live in Washington with my 17 year old son. Still do photography for fun, gave it up as a career a few years back. All my family still lives in LA, what’s left of them. Do you remember coming to my home and going to Hollywood for one of your first times? You are still a beauty my dear. Love your little doggy.

    Would love it if you would say hello sometime and please say hi to your brothers for me.

    Your singing on “Ever Since We Met”, makes me go all funny.

  30. May 8th, 2008 | 10:37 am

    Hi Bridget,

    i dont know if you remember but i contacted you years ago (i think i contacted your sister in law who passed on me email to you), but i lost your email address.

    I am an Australian songwriter/producer, based in the UK. I have been writing constantly since i emailed you about 5 years ago and even took in alot of your advice.

    I would love it if you could listen to my new songs, and provide any feedback, criticisms and advice!

    your sincerely

    Hi bridget,

    Last night I was at a concert featuring Tanya Doko from Bachelor Girl and I had to know more about you when I read on the CD I bought that you wrote Permisssion to Shine. Fantastic song! Truly insperational. You are a great songwriter and music is one of the cornerstones of life, so it truly is a wonderful ability. Best wishes and thank you for sharing your work with the world.

  32. November 18th, 2008 | 10:24 pm

    Hi Bridget,
    I don’t know if you remember me or not. I am a friend of your cousin Roz. She emailed me the artical from Songwriter Universe Magazine. As soon as I read it I bought Kelly Clarkson’s CD. Everytime I hear Blonde’s song “One Way or Another” I ALWAYS think of you. I think you sang it just as good as Debbie Harry if not better (back in the Dreamers days). Anyway Bridget congratulations on your success! I think it’s awesome.
    God Bless,
    Brenda (now from Lompoc)
