London Gay Big Band (LGBB) team up with thirteen leading vocalists to record their debut album, BRAVE, at the iconic Abbey Road Studios in London.
The album is a unique collaboration between the LGBT community group and some of the UK’s finest voices from the jazz scene, West End stage and TV.
Entitled BRAVE, the album was released on Sunday, October 25 2015 on the independent label, Mood Indigo Productions, and features thirteen vocal tracks, each performed by the LGBB and a different vocalist including:
Clare Teal, Claire Martin, Ian Shaw, Emma Hatton, Sharon D. Clarke, La Voix, Ria Jones, Paul Robinson, Sarah Moule, Rachel Weston, Stephen Duffy, Lara De Belder and Crawford McInally-Kier.
Produced by veteran award-winning producer Chris Marshall, from Rhythmshop Productions, the album is intended to bring the concept of London Gay Big Band & Friends to life in an exciting and modern production, allowing each singer’s distinct tone and personality to shine through, whilst partnering with the signature LGBB rich and sumptuous sound.
Stefan Doering, the LGBB’s manager said: “Recording at Abbey Road, in the world-famous Studio 2, was like a dream come true for the band. To be able to work on such a project is something we could never have imagined when we founded the group four years ago. Working in an environment so steeped in musical history, standing on the shoulders of some of the greatest artists of all time, this album recording firmly puts the LGBB on the map and is a momentous milestone in our journey.”
Peter Jay, Musical Director of the LGBB, added: “The idea behind the album was to create an entirely unique offering that has never been done before on the traditional jazz scene. Bringing together vocalists from so many different genres and musical backgrounds on one album has resulted in a completely fresh and distinct record, unlike anything else on the market today.”
BRAVE is available now for download on iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, Amazon, Google Play and other leading online retailers.
