Biographyby Evan C. Gutierrez

John Barrowman was one of few musical theater personalities to make a successful foray into a recording career. Though many stage stars release an album at some point in their careers, seldom are they met with chart success and longevity. Barrowman was born in Glasgow but raised, from the age of nine, in Illinois. Throughout his high-school years, Barrowman ... Read more in Amazon's John Barrowman Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Mr Barrowman, I think you've done it! 1 July 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a new way of making an album for John, and one that has rarely been seen by established names where it is crowd funded and hence free of the requirement to satisfy a range of impactful investors such as music companies.

Working with people he has worked with for years, including musical director Matt Brind, John has been able to make the album that he wanted to make and believed people will love - and so far it seems to have worked.

This album is covers of a wide mix of music from traditional songs to popular hits. The musical styles and arrangements vary significantly from one to another but all are infectious, emotional or downright beautiful.

Ashleigh Gray duets with John on 'Bridge Over Troubled Waters' and has depth and power to her voice that holds its own with John and feels balanced. 'Listen to the Music' has in infections drum beat that means driving to it can result in significant head bobbing. 'Hollywood' just makes you get up and dance!. There are a number of powerful ballads, starting with simple, dulcet tones and building, with the aid of gospel choirs, a strings section, bagpipes and John's powerful baritone to really take the listener on a journey through the song. The recent hits selected ('A Thousand Years' and 'Skyscraper') suit John's voice to a tea and he has the age and credibility to convey to the listener that he understands and believes every word of the lyrics. 'That's the Way It Is' is the one track I did not immediately love - seems a little too predictable in its pop beat, but it is growing on me and I certainly don't dislike it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Barrowman's best album for years 1 July 2014
By Riotoo
Format:Audio CD
Barrowman has said he had full artistic control over this album, and it shows. This album is so much better than the previous few ones. It's probably the best one he's done since Swings Cole Porter, and certainly the best of his 'pop' albums. Previously , no matter how good he is as a live performer the albums always seemed a little bland, lacking his stage energy. This one is I can play on repeat. The vocals, music arrangement, orchestration, even the choir, are superb. Apparently Barrowman is no longer with a record label, and this album was funded via crowdfunding by his fans. More artists should do that if it produces albums of this quality!

5.0 out of 5 stars Listen To The Music 7 July 2014
Format:Audio CD
This is a fantastic album! As usual, John's singing is incredibly powerful, and there is a great selection of songs which will appeal to everyone. I was especially pleased A Thousand Years is on it (which I could happily repeat over and over - this version is heaven!), and the intensely emotional Goodbye My Friend (even if it does make me feel like crying!). then there is the up-beat Listen To The Music, a real happy tune, which I really love too. Really, this whole album perfectly showcases John's vocal talents as a whole and demonstrates what can be achieved by having complete control over its making as opposed to a big record company getting their mitts on things. He is a truly gifted entertainer, and its an absolute pleasure to listen to his amazing voice. If you have not purchased this album yet, go ahead, give your ears a treat!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! 30 Jun 2014
Format:Audio CD
An amazing Cd, John sounds stunning as per usual. Matt Brind has done the most gorgeous arrangements. A selection of my favourite songs, sung beautifully. I shed a few tears on a couple of songs, had goosebumps and the hairs standing up on the back of my neck from the emotionally charged album. A must for any fan and I would recommend for anyone who loves this type of music sung brilliantly. I'm sure this album will win over new fans too!

5.0 out of 5 stars The best one yet! 7 July 2014
Format:Audio CD
A fantastic CD - probably his best one yet. A Thousand Years, Skyscraper and That's the Way It Is are particular favourites of mine. A great choice of songs that really showcase his voice, with lovely arrangements.

I highly recommend this!
