Annaleigh Ashford Releases New Single 'Another Time' Today
Tony Award nominee Annaleigh Ashford and Will Van Dyke will release a single of "Another Time" on iTunes, and wherever digital music is sold, today, January 14th. In addition to writing music and lyrics, Van Dyke is featured on piano on the single. The track also features Michael Aarons (guitar), Steve Gilewski (bass), Sammy Merendino (drums), Philip Payton (violin/viola), and Allison Seidner (cello). It was recorded at Harlem Parlour Recording, NYC by Derik Lee, who also mixed and mastered the recording.
The original song will be featured in Ashford's one woman show, Lost In The Stars, which she will perform twice on February 3rd at 54 Below, at 7:00 pm and 9:30 pm. From the haunting melodies of Kurt Weill and Stephen Sondheim, to the heyday of disco melodies, Ashford's Lost in the Stars will pay tribute to the rich history of Studio 54. With story and song, this classic evening of cabaret will have a touch of fun with a whole lot of heart. Tickets for Annaleigh Ashford - Lost in the Stars at 54 Below range from $25-$45, and are on sale now at www.54below.com.
In addition to her Tony-nominated role as Lauren in Kinky Boots, Annaleigh Ashford was recently seen as Betty DiMello on Showtime's "Masters of Sex." She will return as a series regular in the show's second season. Ashford is best known for her work in Rent (Maureen), for which she was nominated for a Drama League Award and a Clive Barnes Award, Dogfight (Marcy), Wicked (Glinda), and Legally Blonde (Margot). She made memorable appearances in Sex and the City: The Movie and in the Jonathan Demme film, Rachel Getting Married. She has a lead role in the upcoming independent feature film Franny, starring Francis Fisher.
Will Van Dyke met Ashford on the 1st National Tour of Wicked almost 10 years ago. They have remained friends and worked together frequently, most recently when he served as musical director for the Off Broadway revival of Rent. In addition to his work on Kinky Boots and Rent, Van Dyke served in the orchestra for The Addams Family, and is the composer of Pages (Cap 21), Winnie the Pooh, Kids (Disney), and The Girls I've Like Liked (Ars Nova). His songs have been performed at venues all over the country including Joe's Pub and Lincoln Center. Upcoming works include Magnificent Climb (with Rick Elice). Will's debut album, Chasing The Day, is available through Sh-K-Boom records or on iTunes. His sophomore album, Writing Kevin Taylor, is available wherever digital music is sold. With Matt Doyle, Van Dyke co-wrote and produced his albums Daylight and Constant.
