Biography

Karen and Janet have been friends for over twenty years - and writing partners for the last seven. They both share a lot in common: they’re classically trained in music and dance; they hold Masters’ degrees; they live in California; and they are originally from the suburbs of New York. To add to that, they both wanted to be songwriters as teenagers!

Karen and Janet have over twenty years experience in the film and TV industry, which gives them a significant advantage in dealing with filmmakers. Karen’s credits (as on-camera singer and Musical Director) with the Caroling Company include major features such as “Scrooged” and “The Addams Family”, plus numerous television appearances on “General Hospital:, “Good Morning America” and many more. Recent credits include “Spy Kids” and “High Crimes”. Janet’s early credits include production managing music videos for Earth Wind and Fire, Rod Stewart and The Police. She worked at ABC-TV for five years on major shows such as “General Hospital” and “The Olympics”. After that, she became an independent TV and radio producer, writing and producing over 70 TV commercials, TV pilots and radio shows.

As songwriters, they love to write catchy show themes and end title credit tracks. They’ve made their mark with “Wise Woman”, their number one licensed song to date, and “The Hokey Pokey Hip-Hop” (co-published with Sony/ATV), their number one download on Apple ITunes. They’ve won ASCAP Plus Awards, placed high in the Billboard Song Contest and garnered good reviews and airplay, too. Soroca & Allocca are on a roll!

Wise Woman

WISE WOMAN
Music by Karen Soroca
Lyrics by Soroca & Allocca
(Karen Soroca and Janet Marie)

Verse 1
As I look in the mirror, what do I see?
The wisdom of ages - my “ancestory";
A crinkle or 2 - the laughter of lines.
Got my eyes wide open - these are all different signs…

Pre-Chorus
…That I’m a mother, a daughter, a friend and a wife,
A woman who’s entering a new stage of life!

Chorus
‘Cause I’m a {beat} Wise Woman, can’t you see?
…That I’m a Wise Woman, just look at me!

Verse 2
Though my baby-makin’ days may be over and done,
It sure doesn’t mean that I still can’t have fun.
So move over baby, I’ll… show you some…
‘Cause I know where I’m going and I know where I’ve come!

Pre-Chorus
…’Cause I’m a mother, a daughter, a friend and a wife,
A woman who’s entering a new stage of life!

Chorus
‘Cause I’m a {beat} Wise Woman, can’t you see?
…That I’m a Wise Woman, just look at me!

Bridge (Spoken)
Wise.
Wise Woman.
Woman…

Verse 3
And inside me a fire’s beginning to rise.
The roles I have played, now harmonize.
I’ve set the stage; I’ve written my part.
You know you’re never too old to follow your heart!

Pre-Chorus (Variant)
‘Cause you’re a mother, a daughter, a friend and a wife,
A sister, a teacher and a healer of strife
Uh huh, a mover and a shaker, a lover of life!
A woman who’s entering,
(A woman who’s entering),
A woman who’s entering
…A new stage of life…!

Chorus
You’re a {beat} Wise Woman, can’t you see?
…That you’re a Wise Woman, as wise as me!

Coda
A Wise Woman, can’t you see?
…That you’re a Wise Woman as wise as me!
Wise Woman, can’t you see?
Yeah, Wise Woman…!
Wise Woman, yeah, yeah, yeah
Wise Woman!
Wise Woman!

Gonna see…what life’s about
Findin’ love, feelin’ goo-oo-ood –

You know my life…

Hey, Shakespeare – go turn that pa-a-age –
“All the world’s {drum roll} a rockin’ stage!” Yeah!

Oh, Highway 101 - (101 101 101)
