Review

"Faith in this exceptional talent was fully justified." --The Stage

His songs are fresh, catchy and engaging-with lyrics that move you to tears one minute, and send you in to a side-splitting mess the next. --The Drama Student

In order to grow some mighty oaks, we need to start planting an acorn or two. This is a small step, but it could be an important one that allows a new musical writer to get a moment in the spotlight." --The Stage

Format: Audio CD
Speckulation Entertainment has in recent years built an enviable reputation for attracting and promoting unusually innovative young talent. This disc represents a peak in that ideal. Not only does it feature some of their usual `repertory company' of accomplished West End talent, but the composer was discovered by them via a 2007 national Musical Theatre writing competition.

Michael Bruce's work has already been heard in concert form on the London stage, and will next (at the time of writing) appear accompanying David Tennant and Catherine Tate in "Much Ado About Nothing" at Wyndham's Theatre in Summer 2011 according to the sleeve notes. Before that, this CD takes an entertaining sweep through his varied song styles. "Don't Wanna Leave You Now" opens the recording with a surprisingly downbeat first verse leading to an unexpected haunting middle section. "Even Then," with a heartfelt vocal by Paul Spicer then continues the established yearning theme.

Track 3, "I Want A Man" had me reaching for the listings to check whose smooth sweet voice started the song. Sarah Lark kicks off a vaudeville style duet in fine style, amusing us as she and Sarah Earnshaw share a quest for the ideal partner. More yearning, but with a witty upbeat lyric.

The tempo slows again for Charlotte Wakefield's stage ballad style "Someplace Beyond the Moon." Who knows what went on in the show before she sings it - but she'll no doubt have the ushers selling out of Kleenex before she's done.

Mark Evans follows with a bluesy `click along' "Money Honey" - moving from theatre stage to smoky American bar setting in the listener's mind. Masculine enough for the ladies of track 3, perhaps?

Bruce has a certain talent, for pastiche at least, but he seems to lack an original voice. His lyrics are good, but most of the songs sound like variations on other more well known songs by other composers. I would like to hear what he could do with songs specifically written for a musical in development.
