Bernadette Robinson’s performances in her solo show Songs For Nobodies at London’s Ambassadors Theatre last year earned the show an Olivier Awards nomination and announced her as a new star on the West End. Following the acclaimed season, she recorded her new album, Songs of Bernadette, during two premiere live concert performances at Music Hall.
In this concoction of musical delights Bernadette pays tribute to the five iconic singers of the 20th century that feature in Songs For Nobodies: Judy Garland, Patsy Cline, Edith Piaf, Billie Holiday and Maria Callas; and presents songs by contemporary songwriters such as Damien Rice, Jane Siberry and Jackson Browne. She also introduces some surprise guests – Barbra Streisand, Eartha Kitt, Shirley Bassey and Julie Andrews.
“I had a blast last year recording this album in London over two live concerts at The Pheasantry. We also performed the album at two other great London venues, Brasserie Zedel and The Ivy Club. A stack of famous people turned up, including Sandi Toksvig, Maureen Lipman, Phyllis Logan, Kathy Lette and the Oscar and Tony Award winning lyricist Don Black. I really felt like I’d gone to heaven and I can’t wait to launch the album in Australia on 28 June at another iconic venue, MEMO.” – Bernadette Robinson.
