Winter Update

Hi guys,

I hope that you are all beginning to feel the festive spirit, we most certainly are. The last few months have been incredibly busy for us and as always there is a lot more to come. We finally debuted our two new songs last weekend both commissioned by the wonderful charity The Make A Difference Trust (MAD Trust). The first was entitled We Stand Together and was written for The Service of Dedication & Celebration for World Aids Day on 1st December and was performed by the wonderful Rachel Tucker with a choir of 20 students from the MTA (Musical Theatre Academy). You can see the video here. The second was written for A West End Christmas on 2nd December and was entitled Santa, You’re Still My Friend’ and was performed by Daniel Shwartz-Briskin, Ava Merson-O’Brien & Jaime Adler from The Sylvia Young School. You can see the video here. Both songs were performed at the truly beautiful St. Paul’s (The Actors’) Church in Covent Garden, London. On the 6th December our other Holiday song Christmas Eve is being performed by 14 of the 2nd Years from the Italia Conti Academy at their annual Christmas Show. The studio recording of Christmas Eve performed by Jonathan Rayson is also our new single and can be downloaded on iTunes and Amazon worldwide.

Once again we would like to thank each and every one of you for your continued support for us on our musical journey. We love what we do and we love to share it with you.

Have a wonderful holiday season and glad tidings to all.

Love, Barry & Mark xxxx
