Priscilla's Julie Reiber Will Release Solo Recording; Concert, Too
By Andrew Gans
Julie Reiber, who plays Marion in Broadway's Priscilla Queen of the Desert, will release her debut solo recording April 24.
Entitled "Love Travels," the CD is a mix of her original tunes, musical theatre favorites by such composers as Jason Robert Brown ("Still Hurting"), Adam Guettel ("Through The Mountain") and Stephen Schwartz ( "Defying Gravity"), and reinventions of Reiber’s favorite artists including Stevie Wonder ("Knocks Me Off My Feet"), Chaka Khan ("Stay"), John Mayer ("Back To You") and Joni Mitchell ("Little Green").
Reiber is backed by a 12-piece band of Broadway veterans. The recording is arranged and orchestrated by James Sampliner.
The singing actress will celebrate her new recording with a concert at Rockwood Music Hall April 25. The $20 ticket price includes a signed CD. "Love Travels" will also be available via iTunes, CDBaby.com, Amazon.com and JulieReiber.com.
"I love to sing all styles of music,” Reiber said in a statement, “so I knew when I made an album it would be very eclectic and have a little of everything. Through the set list and the variety of the album, together James and I have created a listening experience that represents me fully and speaks to all my musical sensibilities."
