Long before establishing herself as a leading Musical Theatre performer, Louise Dearman was an aspiring pop singer, performing in a band that went under the perhaps discomfiting name of Ill Street, setting themselves up as a British version of Black Eyed Peas, with a rapper, a DJ/producer type, and, in Louise, the band's very own Fergie! They were good, and full of ideas, but Ill Street's metier was essentially pop music, and Louise was finding herself increasingly drawn to a different sound. "And so the band never quite worked out," she says now. "At the same time my musical theatre career was taking off, so I followed that path instead." Louise now wants to reflect her true musical tastes. "And so that's why I'm releasing a solo album now, to highlight, I suppose, the real me." Louise's new album is actually her second. Here Comes The Sun released May 7th - is an elegantly crafted record in which she reinterprets some of her very favourite songs: Cyndi Lauper's Time After Time ; Annie Lennox's Little Bird ; Alanis Morissette's Uninvited ; Randy Crawford's One Day I'll Fly Away . Her voice is crystalline and pure, subtle and serene, and redolent less of the stuff of musical theatre than it is of timeless diva. She smiles. "I'm definitely drawn to the theatrical and the dramatic, it's true," she concedes, "but I grew up on singers like Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Barbra Streisand - the kind of singers whose songs will be around forever. That's what I aspire to." She also happens to aspire to comedy - the writing of and performing - and also to entrepreneurial business endeavors. But one step at a time. We'll do the music first.

The first song is also the title of the album - Here Comes The Sun. There are subtle changes from the original that make this song her own, Louise manages to keep all the brilliance of the song whilst adding a modern twist to get the best out of it.
Squander comes next and wow. Hearing this live it gave me goosebumps and is just a wonderus version. I love Skunk Anansie so was very intrigued to hear how Louise would sing a song that seems so different in style to usual. It gives Louise an opportunity to show off some range, power and most importantly emotion in the song. You can't help but get pulled in by really being able to feel the song when it is being sung.
Time After Time is fast becoming an all time favourite. It is gentle, powerful, emotional and beautiful all rolled into one! The duet with Steve Balsamo works really well as they complement each other's voices to bring out the best..
Gravity, wow. I have heard this live a few times now from Louise but I still wasn't prepared for hearing it on her album, it's not one to listen to in public because it makes me cry every time! Not much else needs to be said about that song!
See The Day is a song I knew but not very well. I love how this version is arranged and each note is hit perfectly to make a song I could listen to on repeat all day.
Little Bird has to be one of the best songs to get you up, dancing and ready for the day. A firm favourite of mine in the car on the way to work. I love the backing to the song too as it brings the whole song alive, a perfect song to listen to every day!
This House shows the beauty of Louise's voice amazingly well by having some amazing notes that make my heart break with the emotion in them as well as the great control she has with her voice.
Alanis Morrisette is a big favourite of mine so I was very intrigued to hear how Louise would tackle this song, I was not disappointed. The song keeps to uniqueness of Alanis whilst stripping it bare to sound as good as (if not better than) the original.
One Day I'll Fly Away is simply beautiful. It makes you stop what you are doing to be able to fully focus on listening.
Kissing You. Wow. There are no adjectives enough to describe how amazing this version is. The backing vocals add so much to the song and when I first heard the song I'll admit I did well up a bit! This to me is the song to show anyone who hasn't heard Louise before. It is beautiful, shows off pure emotion in her voice and I feel so involved in the song when I listen to it I want others to be drawn in by it too.
Overall an amazing album, great song choices, emotional, uplifting and an album I will have on repeat for a long time to come.
The next track is one possibly more well known by the younger generation of listeners, that has become a classic in this decade & is one of my favourite songs of all time, so to discover it's inclusion on Louise's album was a win for me. What stands out on this track is Dearman's respect for the song and it's original artist Sara Bareilles, whilst still being able to take it to new heights and stamp her mark on it. Her tender interpretation paints an emotional picture and I would dare anyone listening to try and not reach for the Klennex. 'See The Day' is a mini masterpiece in and of itself, from beginning to end it just keeps building throughout to a breathtaking conclusion, leaving me reaching for the repeat button each and every time. The orchestration is passionate where it needs to be and eases off to a flawless balance to allow Dearman's vocal to shine through in the verses. Every album needs it's 'Little Bird' to take flight and rouse people to their feet, and this track does just that, you can't help but add a little spring in your step when listening to this electrifying anthem. 'This House' was the only track I was unfamiliar with but have promptly acquainted myself with its sheer brilliance. It is a track that shows the full spectrum of Louise's vocal prowess. Dearman's rendition of 'Uninvited' is seductively bewitching. There is something so mysterious about this track, once again the team creating this masterpiece have out done themselves with this one, as all the pieces of this puzzle fit together in such an immaculate way. Personally music needs to make me feel something if it is really to make an impact and that is exactly what Louise does with 'One Day I'll Fly Away' the intensity of this track has such an allure about it, drawing you in from the first note and keeping a tight grasp on your heart & soul as you are once again taken on an awe-inspiring journey through the song. It is one of those songs that makes the hairs on the back of your neck stand up and take note and Louise once again proves why she is a house hold name in the Westend. 'Kissing You' is a fitting finale to this heavenly album. It is another song that is rather iconic in it's own right, most notably from it's emotionally charged inclusion in the movie 'Romeo & Juliet.' Every facet of this song is impeccably delivered, the production is absolutely flawless and takes the song to a luxurious & haunting new level, especially when the gospel choir come in and complement all other elements of this beautiful song. To conclude, Louise Dearmans 'Here Comes The Sun' is an album that is perfectly crafted by Big Hand Records to showcase the harmonious mastery or Tour de Force that is Louise Dearman. I defy anyone to listen to this album in it's entirety and not be drawn in by the sultry tones of Dearman. I would also advise the 'Diva's' of the world to make room in their ranks, as Louise is marking out a path to join them at the top. Well what are you waiting for? Sine qua non, this album is a necessity for your music collection. While you buy it, I shall close my eyes and let this album take me on another journey.
