By Andrew Gans
Playbill.com has learned that a host of Broadway and international performers will be featured on composer-lyricist Scott Alan's fourth recording, following the critically acclaimed "What I Wanna Be When I Grow Up," "Dreaming Wide Awake" and "Keys."
Those expected to lend their talents to the as-yet-untitled recording include Shoshana Bean, Stephanie J. Block, Sierra Boggess, Liz Callaway, Ann Hampton Callaway, Louise Dearman, Kerry Ellis, Christopher Jackson, Jeremy Jordan, Mykal Kilgore, Caissie Levy, Stuart Matthew Price, Lea Salonga, Melissa van der Schyff, Oliver Tompsett, Willemijn Verkaik, Natalie Weiss and Raena White as well as recording artists Marc Broussard and RJ Helton. A fall release is expected.
A previously unreleased studio recording of one of Alan's compositions, featuring Ramin Karimloo and Hadley Fraser, will be included as a bonus track.
A majority of the album, which will be produced by the composer and StylesFour Productions, will be recorded live at Alan's already sold-out Birdland concert on April 30. The recording will feature musical direction, arrangements and orchestrations by Jesse Vargas.
Due to Monday-night Broadway schedules, some talent will record their tracks prior to the 7 PM concert.
In addition to the performers announced, Alan is providing an opportunity for an unknown talent to be featured on the album and record a new song by the composer. For more information on the "I'm a Star" contest by Alan and YouTube sensation Michael Buckley, visit www.scottalan.net. The contest ends March 15, and the winner will be announced April 1.
Alan’s show with playwright Christy Hall, Home, is aiming for a Broadway debut in the fall. Home is being produced by StylesFour Productions, whose credits also include Once, Spring Awakening and Driving Miss Daisy.
