Clear Blue Sky
From the producers of Julie Atherton's "A Girl Of Few Words", "Clear Blue Sky" by Marc Joseph is a collection of some of the best songs by British composer Charles Miller with lyrics by Keven Hammonds, Adam Bard, Paul Carpenter and Tim Sanders. West End actor and singer Marc Joseph brings his terrific vocal talents to Charles' excellent songs. Charles' work is often compared with Jason Robert Brown and Stephen Sondeim and he stands as the leader in new musical theatre work in the UK. Marc's previous work includes appearances in the West End musical "Les Miserables" and he became well known for his performance of Jimmy Crawford in "The Fields Of Ambrosia". The album also features a stunning duet featuring Helena Blackman (runner up in the BBC's "How Do You Solve A Problem Like Maria?") Executive Producer of the album is West End Actor and Musician Guy James (Fame, Buddy, The Next Big Thing). The Music was produced by Martin Fisher (Les Miserables, Lautrec, Buddy). Since producing Julie Atherton's "A Girl Of Few Words", Guy and Martin have become hugely sought after producers and produced the recent cast recording of "When Midnight Strikes" also by Charles Miller & Kevin Hammonds. "Clear Blue Sky" is another testament to their abilities in producing beautiful, contemporary musical theatre. 'With 14 tracks, Marc Joseph's debut album is actually a double CD because it delivers a double musical whammy, combining the soaring vocal talents of an assured young singer with a theatre background and the songs of Charles Miller, one of the UK's most exciting musical theatre composing talents. Marc Joseph may have been away from the West End stage for a while, but listening to that gorgeous crystalline voice delivering long flowing phrases in songs like 'Feels Like Home' (from Hope) and 'Just the Beginning' (from No One in the World), or belting showmanship of the heart-stealing 'Thief in the Night' (from Brenda Bly: Teen Detective), he clearly hasn't lost any of that refined - and magical - art of bringing words and music together, this time in the recording studio. Each and every track deserves applause.' Roger Foss, Editor, What's On Stage magazine.
