Sophie Ellis-Bextor - The Song Diaries

Mon 24 Sep 2018

The renowned singer will perform orchestral versions of her hits as well as songs from the great canon of disco songs.

Since the release of her debut album Read My Lips in 2001 Ellis-Bextor has had six Top 10 singles, including Take Me Home, Get Over You, and of course Murder on the Dancefloor. Her collaboration with Spiller, the No.1 Hit Groovejet (If This Ain’t Love), catapulted her into the music scene and was the most played record on UK radio between 2000 and 2010. She has incorporated several genres over the course of her career, from her debut through to 2014’s Wanderlust, which fused elements of folk, baroque and orchestral music. Her most recent album, 2016’s Familia, included disco, dance, sophisti-pop and chamber pop. What has been a constant thread though is her trademark, stunning vocal sound.

The basis for the shows will be arrangements stemming from her forthcoming Orchestral Greatest Hits album due in 2019, on which she worked with long term collaborator and album producer Ed Harcourt with orchestral arrangements by Amy Langley (Dirty Pretty Strings), and additional production from David Arnold.
