Anderson & Petty: You Are Home
Barry Anderson (NYC) and Mark Petty (LDN) met in 2010, and by May 2011 they were putting on a concert to showcase their songs at the legendary Duplex cabaret theatre in New York City… Quick movers! Now, they are promoting their songbook album ‘You Are Home: The Songs of Anderson & Petty’ which was released in December 2013.
We were lucky enough to catch them at the St. James Studio in London this month, where a cast of ridiculously talented singers performed songs from their album. The cast included:
Matthew Barrow, Edward Baruwa, Kieran Brown, Nadine Cox, Andy Coxon, Chris Howell, Kim Ismay, Sophie Issacs, Laura Main, Gloria Onitiri, Sophia Ragavelas, Charlotte Wakefield and Jacinta Whyte.
It is very easy to find talent in London, but to find so much on such a small stage is a rarity.
Unfortunately footage of the concert has not yet been released, but here is one of our own Whitby St. Cabaret girls, Ceili O’Connor, performing one of their songs – ‘Superman’. On the album it is sung by America's own Autumn Hurlbert who is best known for her role in Legally Blonde on Broadway, however we think that our UK girl (who is currently on tour with Evita) holds her own!
