Recording, Television, & Cabarets
Last year I ventured to Soundbaker studios with Chris Marquand (drums), Mark Cunniffe (piano), Kate Pass (double bass), and Alana Macpherson (saxophone) to record two songs: Harry Connick Jr.’s “Whipser Your Name” and Ray Charles’s “Drown In My Own Tears.” These recordings will contribute to my first studio album which I will complete one day when I have the money. You can check out the recordings on my SoundCloud account or you check out the TV performance versions in the clips above and below. Thank you to Fred for having us on his show The Couch to showcase these new recordings on TV.
Both songs feature in my upcoming cabaret show “Like Blown Smoke” which I am bringing back for one night only at Rigby’s Bar and Bistro on Friday 29th April. The show, which premiered Downstairs at His Majesty’s Theatre in 2014, features my first ever original song as well as my hip-hop track “Funk Express” with rapper Boycizm who will make a special guest appearance on the night. The line-up for the night includes Murray Wilkins (double bass) and Tim Voutas (piano) as well as a surprise appearance from Soul Corporation band member Clive Dennis (guitar). I may even have a beautiful lady on stage with me. 😉
So join us at “Like Blown Smoke” for a fun and romantic night of music made famous by Bruno Mars, Adele, Ray Charles, Maroon 5, Nina Simone, John Legend, Ella Fitzgerald, and more. Book your tickets here. Rigby’s offers a special show and 3-course dinner package for $60 or, if you would rather select from the bar and a la carte menu on the night, the ticket to just see the show is only $30. Hope to see you there!
