New Release for 2015 -- WILLOW - HIDE AND SEEK EP
Introducing our new recording artist - Harmony School protégé WILLOW - with her debut CD - 'Hide and Seek' EP - containing 4 original tracks composed and performed by Willow herself and produced by Jayl @ The Angel Studio in the Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire. Last year she made her recording debut, singing on Jayl's album - The Band of Life - ROMA. Now Willow has created her own unique and haunting sound for her own CD. The songs have also been inspired by personal tragedy for Willow, as she lost both of her beloved grandparents last year. Two of the tracks are dedicated to them.
Willow has studied and worked with Jayl at Harmony School for the last 5 years and the CD is the culmination of this amazing time together. A time that has seen Willow grow into one of the most talented and eclectic young artists of her generation. As well as her contemporary work, Willow is a member of Gloucester Cathedral Youth Choir. She has already performed at the Royal Albert Hall and will soon be singing at St.Paul's Cathedral, as she has now earned a place on to the prestigious Eton Choral Course. Willow is also training as a classical singer and recently starred as Christine, presenting a brilliant performance in her school production of "The Phantom of the Opera". There is no doubt that Willow has the potential to go really far in her music career and this Harmony Label professional CD release truly reflects her advancing talent.
