'Head Over Heels' Showcase- One Year On

Updated: Jul 25, 2023

Easter Sunday marked the one year anniversary of the first public performances from my original album 'Head Over Heels', and I thought I would mark the occasion by remembering it.




What is 'Head Over Heels'?



'Head Over Heels' is an album of twenty songs, spread evenly over two discs, and the best way I have ever been able to describe it is as a variety album. Inspired heavily by my passion of musical theatre, yet we delve into pop, prog rock, swing: the title track even goes country!


Each song is performed by a different performer (or different performers), meaning that each song is absolutely unique when compared to any of its other nineteen counterparts. Each one tells a short narrative, often quirky or tongue in cheek, and each vocalist on the album is a talent local to Macclesfield or Congleton.



Saturday 9th April 2022



Prior to the album's official release date (Friday 22nd April 2022), a teaser was put on at a local Macclesfield venue - MADS Little Theatre.


Following a spectacular projection of Alex Bingle's track 'Dreams' (projection designed by Simon Matthews), the show - hosted by Claire Taylor - introduced the respective songs and performances of;


Simon Waring ('Mister Illusion'), Rebecca Clulow ('Back to Reality'), Simon Hoffman ('Rulebook'), Louise Colohan ('Dismissive'), Pete Munro ('The Midnight Hour'), Sidney Smith ('Take a Walk') and Emily Redwood ('I'll Be There').


The performance was finished off by the title track - 'Head Over Heels' - performed by Louise Colohan in Sarah Powell's absence:




Reception



Everybody loved it, and everybody who purchased or downloaded a copy of the album on its eventual release date loved it too!


It even led to me going on the radio! Whilst the title track circulated Canalside in Macclesfield, I ended up on Radio Northwich with Louise Colohan to promote it!
