Tom launches IL Divino at Marabini's!

Tom Wyllie, Il Divino, with Giovanni Marabini
Last Saturday, Tom Wyllie was back at Marabini's. He hadn't sung there since September, as he had a number of private engagements during October.

Tom was able to take the opportunity to launch his new CD, Il Divino, named because that is what Giovanni, the proprietor of Marabini's, calls Tom.

Tom Wyllie with Sylvia Orrick
Also there on Saturday, was Sylvia Orrick, who has become Tom's most devoted fan. Her favourite song of Tom's has always been Il Divo's Nella Fantasia, which is featured on his new CD.
Sylvia later said "Super night again at Marabini’s, great selection of material and great audience participation.  Gold was particularly mad with that group at the back of the restaurant (joining in)!  Giovanni’s not wrong though – Il Divino is certainly a title you are well worthy of.
Your new CD was well worth the wait and contains a brilliant cross section of differing song types.  As you are probably aware there is one track in particular that still continues to reduce me to tears.  No prizes though for guessing which one that is

Tom is back at Marabini's this Saturday, 10th November, 2012.
For those interested in seeing him perform in
Eldon Square, another date has been booked today. Tom will be there between 2pm and 6pm on 27th November 2012. Don't forget to check all Tom's public gigs can be found here.

New CD is here!

Il Divino Cover
Tom Wyllie, North East Singer, is pleased to announce that with effect from today, his new CD Il Divino will be available to buy where you see him sing!

This new offering has more of the "pop op", together with swing and pop. There are also a couple of duets. The first is with local radio presenter Anna Foster -
All I Ask Of You from Phantom of the Opera, is just beautiful. Tom also sings Me and My Shadow with local singer Pete Brown, the pair of them clearly having fun whilst performing together.

Tom said "The new CD is so named because it is what Giovanni, owner of Marabini's in Morpeth has called me since I started singing for him! Giovanni really loves the more operatic part of my repertoire. That said, there is a variety of genre here, from Pop Op to Musical Theatre to Swing, Pop and Rock - genuinely something for everyone! But then, when I am booked to sing at functions I am often asked for the full range of my repertoire, as people love to listen to the more classical material early on, and then later like to get up for a dance. I can cover all this, and this is reflected in this new CD"

The first place you can buy Tom's CD will be at Marabini's this
Saturday 3rd November, 2012.

Last tweaks!

Editing with Sean
Tom was with Sean Taylor , his Sound Engineer, yesterday making a couple of last minute alterations to his new CD. Now Sean is producing the final master copy, which can then go to be replicated!

We will hopefully have a date when it will be available fairly soon now.

More news on Tom's new CD!

Tom Wyllie recording with Anna Foster Inlay
Yesterday, Tom (hopefully) had his last recording session. There are a couple of duets on the CD, and now, we can reveal for the first time, that one of the duets is with Anna Foster! You may recognise Anna as a well know local radio breakfast show presenter, but perhaps less well known is that she is a highly accomplished Soprano. Having heard the song, we can say that those who buy Tom's forthcoming second CD, are in for a real treat!

The race is on now, to get everything ready to produce the CD in time for Christmas. Watch this space for more news soon!

Recording again

For anyone wondering how Tom is getting along with recording, he was in the studio last night, and will be there again today.

No hints here yet as to what will be on the new CD, or what it will be called yet. There will be one or two surprises though, and we can say that where crescendo featured a high proportion of Musical Theatre songs, his new CD doesn't!
