West End star Tom Solomon is to release a new album this December.
The actor and ‘BBC Voice of Musical Theatre’ will drop his new record Musicals, Vol. 1 on 10 December.
Released on the same day as the upcoming new movie adaptation of West Side Story (directed by Steven Spielberg) and includes a big band, jazz style version of Maria.
Other songs include Anthem (From Chess), I Am What I Am (From La Cage Aux Folles), The Music of the Night (From Phantom of the Opera) and Bring Him Home (From Les Miserables).
Speaking about the album Tom said: “During lockdown I needed a project and decided I wanted to release a series of self-produced musical theatre albums. It’s been such a difficult couple of years for everyone and I wanted to keep creative. Musicals, Vol. 1 is the first album and includes 8 songs that some would call the classics.”
Tom has performed roles in many West End and International productions including: West Side Story, Chess, Chicago, Scrooge, Les Misérables, Into The Woods, Hello Dolly, Side By Side By Sondheim and The Phantom of the Opera. He made his Broadway debut in The Enchanted Pig and created the leading role of William Hogarth in the Royal Opera House production Pleasure’s Progress.
Musicals, Vol. 1 is available now for preorder on iTunes ahead of its release on Friday, 10 December 2021.
