West End's Scott Garnham Turns to Indiegogo to Fund SELF INDULGENT BALLAD Project
West End actor Scott Garnham has launched an Indiegogo campaign to fund his "Self Indulgent Ballad" project. The Self Indulgent Ballad is a comedy song written by the theatre performer and co-composer Steven Luke Walker.
Speaking to West End Frame, Scott said: "Self Indulgent Ballad has been successful because people embraced the song and seem to really like it. It was always a bit of dream that we'd record it and the fact we are recording a music video too is just incredible!"
The West End actor, who most recently starred in [title of show] at the Landor Theatre, needs to raise funds to be able to record the song and film an accompanying music video. Fans can pledge anything between £5 and £350 through an Indiegogo campaign. In return for pledging money there are various perks up for grabs, including the chance to appear in the music video and to be the first to hear the song. At the moment, pledging is also the only way to secure tickets to the launch gig.
Explaining how the idea came about, writing on the campaign page, Scott said "Self Indulgent Ballad was born about two years ago, whilst chatting side stage at the Queen's Theatre (London) with Hadley Fraser. We got on to the subject of musical theatre albums and artistes that released them and we found that on the whole most albums contained all the classic ballads you'd expect and how funny it would be to just be refreshingly honest and call your album 'Self Indulgent Ballad'...... An idea was born!!"
Scott Garnham played 'Feuilly' and covered the roles of 'Marius' and 'Enjolras' in "LES MISERABLES" at the Queens Theatre. His other theatre credits include the "LES MISERABLES 25th Anniversary Concert at The O2", 'Ronan Corr' in the West End and UK touring productions of "Eurobeat" and 'Jose Reize' in the UK tour of "Never Forget".
