Geoff Sewell: One week to go to album launch
IT'S just one week before the long-awaited solo album from GEOFF SEWEL, the voice of AMICI FOREVER, hits the stores.
The album, titled BELIEVE, will be in stores next Monday – the day his beautiful daughter Sienna turns 5. This is a symbolic day, as Sienna is the reason his life changed so dramatically two years ago when she was diagnosed with autism.
He has spent that time focusing on his young family and looking at the things that matter most to him in life. His music is one of them. BELIEVE is a compilation of songs that he loves plus one very special one, written by his wife Simone called Sienna’s Song. Proceeds of this song will go to families afflicted by autism.
“The songs are personal, inspirational, classic and fun. They are a collection of great songs that have inspired me on my journey so far,” Geoff says.
"Life is a daring adventure or nothing!" Geoff Sewell
The New Zealand born tenor, now based in London, has been singing professionally for 11 years. The album reflects his international recording history and performing experience around the world, as well as his deep affection for his homeland. It has been a labour of love for Geoff, a consummate professional who settles for nothing but the absolute best.
Geoff recorded the orchestra in Prague and the choir in London. The album is produced by Nick Patrick, widely considered the ‘master’ of classical crossover music. Patrick has worked with artists like Russell Watson, Katherine Jenkins and Hayley Westenra, and says Geoff has a remarkable talent.
The album is a little bit pop, a little bit opera.... but it’s one hundred percent Geoff Sewell. The good looking and charismatic Kiwi is excited, “It’s a dream come true for me. Not that long ago, I was a chartered accountant working in a bank and I longed to be a professional singer. Now, a few years on, I am actually doing it, and this time on my own!”
