Nadim Naaman’s second album, Sides, launches at The Hippodrome, Sunday 19th June, 2016.
West End performer Nadim Naaman, currently filling the boots of Raoul in The Phantom of the Opera, will be releasing his second album Sides with independent label Auburn Jam Records on June 20th, with an album launch gig at The Hippodrome, London on Sunday June 19th at 3pm.
The concept of Sides, which Nadim has been working on with producer Joe Davison since August last year, is a double-length album showcasing both sides of Nadim as a performer: as a singer-songwriter with nine original self-penned songs; and as an actor, with his take on nine musical theatre songs from writers and shows which have shaped and influenced his career so far, including Andrew Lloyd-Webber, Alan Menken, Andrew Lippa, Jason Robert Brown, William Finn, Cy Coleman & David Zippell, Maury Yeston, Stuart Brayson & Tim Rice, and John Dempsey & Dana P. Rowe.
Nadim is delighted to be joined on the album by guest vocalists Rob Houchen (Les Misérables), Eva Noblezada (Miss Saigon, Les Misérables), Jeremy Secomb (Les Misérables, Sweeney Todd), Celinde Shoenmaker (Phantom of the Opera, Les Misérables), and Laura Tebbutt (Forbidden Broadway, The Wizard of Oz). The album will also feature a bonus track of the previously released ‘A Soldier’s Christmas’, written by Nadim and performed with former Phantom, Gerónimo Rauch.
A limited run of physical CD copies of Sides will be released, which can be pre-ordered now from Auburn Jam Records. All pre-orders will be signed by Nadim, available individually at £16 or as a bundle with his first album for only £20, and will be dispatched the week before the launch. The album will also be available for download via all major online retailers from June 20th. Tickets to the album launch gig on June 19th can be booked via The Hippodrome box office: www.hippodromecasino.com/events or 0207 7698888.
Nadim released his first album We All Want The Same, which is currently the top selling solo album on the Auburn Jam Records label, in 2013 and received rave reviews for both the album and live performances of his material at The Pheasantry and Union Theatre:
