I'll try really hard from now on - promise!
I actually have a lot of experience doing musical theatre and it's something I've always enjoyed, so of course I jumped at the opportunity!
After recording 21 songs with David Booth in Debenham in a very short amount of time the album was finished. You can buy it here, or listen to some of the songs on soundcloud! This is the one I wrote.
Thank you so much if you're someone who came to watch.
It was so much fun to combine my singer/songwritery world with a musical theatre one - especially since it was an actor/musician show, meaning the majority of the band were also in the cast. However while most of the band stayed in a band corner and came on stage occasionally, myself and Selina Lumber spent most of our time on stage playing our instruments in character. As I wasn't sat with the band most of the time and couldn't have the music on a stand in front of me, I ended up writing the chords for 16 songs out on post-it notes every night and sticking them to the top of my guitar. They only fell of during one performance and didn't even make it to the floor, which I consider a success!
Here are some videos of songs from the show, including a very enthusiastic Izzy Roy singing 'Holiday in Harwich' on location, and a video of me tap dancing in 'I Want To Dance Like Fred Astaire'!
