David Campbell Sings John Bucchino
One of Australia’s foremost entertainers, David Campbell has signed a licensing deal with independent label Social Family Records via his own label Luckiest Records and is excited to announce his return to the recording studio with a brand new album David Campbell Sings John Bucchino. This is his first recording in three years. It will be available on iTunes and Amazon worldwide on June 24th. Fans can also pre-order a signed copy by visiting http://bit.ly/DCpreorder or pre-order on iTunes at http://georiot.co/1dHC.
Accompanied by Bucchino on piano Campbell tackles 11 of the composer’s compositions including "Taking The Wheel" and "Grateful" which appeared on earlier Campbell albums but are recorded here anew with Bucchino for the first time. Also featured is "Better Than I" which Bocchino composed for the Dreamworks Animation film Joseph: King of Dreams in which Campbell was heard as the singing voice of Ben Affleck’s title character.
One of Australia’s biggest selling recording artists, David Campbell has also achieved considerable success in the United States. His critically acclaimed New York show attracted major crowds and created what Time Out New York described as "…the biggest buzz since Barbra Streisand." Campbell’s show subsequently moved to Rainbow & Stars where he became the youngest performer ever to headline the iconic venue. With this success as a launch-pad, Campbell was soon in demand from Broadway’s most prestigious writers and directors. He was cast in the New York premiere of Stephen Sondheim’s musical Saturday Night and played a leading role in New York City Center Encores! production of Babes In Arms. He released three highly praised recordings in the U.S. and has been featured on CBS Sunday Morning.
In recent years Campbell has taken a break from recording while co-hosting the top-rated Mornings alongside co-host Sonia Kruger on Australia’s Nine Network.
John Bucchino is one of New York’s most beloved composers. His work has been recorded by artists such as Art Garfunkel, Liza Minnelli and Kristin Chenoweth and performed at venues across the world – from the Sydney Opera House to the White House. His work with Harvey Fierstein ‘A Catered Affair’ opened on Broadway in 2008 and won the Drama League Award for Distinguished Production of a Musical. Most recently, he was commissioned by Danish producer Soren Moller to compose music and lyrics for the musical ‘Esaura’.
