Photo Coverage: Thos Shipley Brings The Music Of Nat King Cole To The Metropolitan Room

5-Time MAC award winner Outstanding Jazz Vocalist) and Broadway performer (Miss Saigon) brought his Nat King Cole tribute show "Unforgettable" to the Metropolitan Room last night and BroadwayWorld was there.

Thos Shipley hit the New York club scene, performing at various jazz venues such as Iridium and Upstairs at Green Street where he opened for future stars as comedian Mario Cantone. Before long, he rose to new heights, performing an SRO concert in the Weill at Carnegie Hall, playing the Spoleto Festival and performing in a one-man Off-Broadway show, "Broadway Goes Jazz." His first New York review by Bob Harrington of the NEW YORK POST hailed Thos Shipley as "On The Way To Stardom."

A turning point came when Thos was cast in the Broadway production of Miss Saigon. He stayed with the show for a three-year stint in New York then went on to Asia as a solo jazz artist to perform at Harry's International in Singapore. As a crowd-pleasing feature at Town Hall's Cabaret Convention, he shared the stage with such talent as Bill Charlap and Andrea Marcovicci, performed in Nantes, France at La Nuit Du Jazz in October and is part of the developmental cast recording of a new musical with a big band score which is based on Othello called Ivory Joe Cole.

Thos Shipley served on the faculty of Singer's Forum and is a voice over artist with national and international credits.
