THREE NEW SINGLES COMING OVER THE NEXT MONTH – THE CUTTING ROOM SESSIONS FEAT. JEN BURLEIGH-BENTZ, RACHEL SCHUR & MIKE MILLAN + CURTIS WILEY

Over the next month we will be releasing three new singles which have never been available to stream before. A few years ago we went into The Cutting Room Studios in New York City to lay down three tracks from various projects that we had been working on. The first release I Do which dropped on Friday 7th August and featuring vocals from Jen Burleigh-Bentz (Mamma Mia!) follows the life of Erika LaTour Eiffel who legally married the Eiffel Tower. We were asked to write the song as part of a “docu-musical” project called Objects of Desire which detailed the lives of people with Object Sexuality or Objectophilia which is a form of sexual or romantic attraction focused on particular inanimate objects. Check out the song on Spotify here I Do. You can also see Jen performing the song live at 54 Below in New York here I Do

On the 21st August we will be releasing Dreamworld featuring vocals from Rachel Schur (Chicago) & Mike Millan (Escape To Margaritaville) which started off as a jingle/theme song that we were asked to write for a new tea company called Realit ✓. Check out their website here

And finally on 4th September we will be releasing He Never Lost The Fight featuring vocals from Curtis Wiley (Ain’t Too Proud) which was for a project called Ghost in the House, The Life and Times of Jack Johnson, a new play written by Ernie Hudson and Frank Megna and starring Tony Todd of Candyman fame. Jack Johnson (March 31, 1878 – June 10, 1946), nicknamed the “Galveston Giant”, was an American boxer who, at the height of the Jim Crow era, became the first African-American world heavyweight boxing champion (1908–1915) You can see Curtis Wiley performing the song live at 54 Below in New York here He Never Lost The Fight

Mark has been hosting a series of monthly concerts Live at Zédel this summer and on the 16th September he presented The New Musical Theatre Showcase which featured new and re-arranged songs from ourselves and also material from Kansley & Lidert, Kate Marlais & Alex Young, Oliver Boito and Webborn & Finn.

The sensational Christina Bennington who is currently starring as Raven in Bat Out Of Hell – The Musical at The Dominion Theatre in London debuted our brand new female empowerment anthem Get Brave as well as the song All She Wants which we debuted back in June with Belinda Wollaston. The always amazing Nadim Naaman (Raoul in The Phantom of the Opera and also co-writer of the brand new musical Broken Wings) performed a re-worked version of the song Tell Me which we originally debuted on our first album You Are Home. The three songs followed each other and told the story of a woman at a crossroads in her life and the choices that she has to make. Check out the videos here:
