West End GHOST's Mark Evans Releases Debut Album 'The Journey Home' Today, June 18
West End star Mark Evans, Sam in the musical GHOST, releases his English debut album The Journey Home today, June 18th with Sain Records.
‘The Journey Home’ features lead-off track- ‘Unchained Melody’ - out May 28th – a beautiful reinterpretation of the song on which he duets with his co-star from the musical Ghost, Siobhan Dillon.
Also present on the album are tracks with guests’ including Ysgol Glanaethwy, who performs with Mark on a number of tracks, and fellow West End singer Ashleigh Gray who joins Mark in a duet titled Alive.
Mark said, "In September 2010 I began the mammoth task of deciding what songs to have on my album and I never realised just how difficult this would be. I’m a very indecisive person naturally, and so I decided to make the album very personal and almost autobiographical of the 10 years since I left home."
