Nadim Naaman to Perform Live At The Pheasantry, March 30
Following a sell-out launch gig for his debut album "We All Want The Same" at the Union Theatre in September last year, West End star Nadim Naaman will perform a live concert at The Pheasantry on Sunday March 30.
Nadim, who made his West End debut as Rolf in The Sound of Music at the London Palladium, was most recently seen in the West End in the cast of One Man, Two Guvnors at the Haymarket Theatre. Other credits include covering and playing Raoul in The Phantom Of The Opera (Her Majesty's), Armand in Margueritte (Tabard). Anatoly in Chess (Union) and Charles Clarke in the WOS Award-winning production of Titanic at the Southwark Playhouse.
His debut album, "We All Want The Same" (released by Auburn Jam Records in September 2013), feauturing 11 original songs in the pop, jazz, R &B ad musical theatre genres, was highly acclaimed by both critics and fellow West End performers:
"Anyone interested in love, life and musical theatre will adore Nadim's album. A great collection of original songs." - Rachel Tucker
"It's nice to hear a Musical Theatre artiste sing original stuff. This is a top album." - John Owen-Jones.
"Such a talented, lovely guy and a hugely gifted songwriter. This album is not to be missed." - Simon Bailey.
"The songs are composed with sincere artistry....To say it is anything less than gorgeous would be a severe disservice to his instrument. Pitch for pitch, he is technically flawless... Nadim Naaman has the skill of Josh Groban" - Broadway World.
"This recording full of heart and soul... I always recommend supporting original material and new writing, but when it's of this quality, I'd go so far as to demand it." - Bargain Theatre.
The Pheasantry cabaret will feature songs from the album plus some of Nadim's favourite songs and music that has influenced his own writing in an evening of "pizza, wine and live music". Nadim will be accompanied by his 5-piece live band (led by music producer and musical director Joe Davison) and the show will include special guest appearances from West End stars Will Barratt (Jersey Boys, Sweeney Todd, Les Miserables, The Phantom of the Opera, The Producers) and Siubhan Harrison (From Here To Eternity, Les Miserables, We Will Rock You, Grease).
Nadim will be supported with a set from cross-over jazz singer-songwriter Nazneen (who also works with producer Joe Davison at Auburn Jam Music). By day a Professor of Human Genetics at the Institute of Cancer Research, Head of the Cancer Genetics Service at the Royal Marsden Hospital and a world-renowned scientist in her field, Nazneen began singing and writing music four years ago and her intimate stories about life's complexities have garnered her a huge following on SoundCloud. Her songs "The Time Travelling Wife" and "Lost Cause" made it to the finals of the UK Songwriting Contest in 2013. Her EP "My Funny Valentine" was released in August last year and she will be releasing her debut album in July.
