Charlotte Moore Announces New Album SOME COMFORT HERE

Charlotte Moore has announced the release of her new album Some Comfort Here, in digital format on Nov 12, 2021. Moore will celebrate the release of the album with a concert at The Medley on Thurs, Nov 11, 2021, accompanied by Mark Camilleri who also produced, engineered, mastered and accompanied on the album. The Medley (formerly Mysteriously Yours and Limelight) is Toronto's new supper club and show lounge, 2026 Yonge Street. Tickets ($20) are available at www.themedley.ca.

Moore shares the impetus for this album: "Last spring I got together with Mark at his Imagine Sound Studios to record a vocal for Jim Betts' Cathy Elliott project. I was reminded how well we work together and, having nothing to do the next several months due to the pandemic, I asked him if he might be willing to do a project with me, just the two of us, vocal and piano, with an off-the-floor feel. To my surprise and delight he agreed. Some Comfort Here is the result, a (pretty much) live-to-tape collection of songs from old to new, representing writers of different genres. The songs are mostly pop, with only Gretchen Cryer & Nancy Ford's Old Friend and Kevin Wong's Maybe Now from the musical theatre canon, which may come as a surprise as we are both primarily known for musical theatre, but these are the songs that captured our artistic selves at that moment in time.

There are songs written and/or recorded by Joni Mitchell (Help Me), Tom Waits (Rainbow Sleeves), Rascal Flatts (Why), Jann Arden (Insensitive written by Anne Loree), Tracy Chapman (Give Me One Reason), Chantal Kreviazuk (All I Can Do), Alex Pangman (Hummin' To Myself) and Blosson Dearie (Touch The Hand of Love). The title of the album "Some Comfort Here" comes from Sarah McLachlan's Angel, also on the album, representing the welcoming, comforting feel we hoped to capture with this project.

Charlotte Moore has been a staple of the Canadian Musical Theatre for over 40years. She won her first Dora Mavor Moore Award in 1990 for The Rocky Horror Show and was nominated exactly 30 years later for Sunday In The Park With George. She has appeared at the Shaw Festival, Charlottetown Festival and worked across the country in such theatres as The Grand Theatre London, Halifax's Neptune Theatre, Drayton Entertainment, and many more. For Mirvish Productions, she played in Hairspray (original Canadian Company), as Fantine in Les Miserables (Toronto and National/US Tour), and as Aunty Em in Wizard Of Oz (Toronto and National/US Tour). She has been a stalwart supporter of new Canadian Musicals for all of those 40 years, appearing in many World Premieres and Workshops. Most recently she stopped the show in "Follies in Concert" at Koerner Hall singing Sondheim's "I'm Still Here" with a 24-piece orchestra. Charlotte appears on the Cast Album for Stan Rogers - A Matter of Heart and Some Comfort Here is her third solo album, along with Friends Of Mine - Songs From Canadian Musicals and Long Road Back. www.charlottemoore.ca
