Scrapbook: The Songs of Rob Archibald and Verity Quade

Available at itunes, Dress Circle and Amazon

I enjoy exploring new musical theatre writers. Scrapbook is a collection of standalone songs and material from musical theatre projects that Verity Quade and Rob Archibald have been working on. Here are some thoughts on the tracks.

Thirtysomething- Richard Hartley, Gina Beck, Simon Grieff, Kirsty Hoiles, Nicky Swift + Stuart Matthew Price- A great start to the album.  The song is very catchy and well performed.

Life Through A Lens- Ako Mitchell-  I really rate Ako Mitchell‘s voice.  Great lyrics.

The Singer’s Lament- Rosemary Ashe- An upbeat, fun song with some very clever lyrics.

Sorry- Annalene Beechey- A gorgeous song, beautifully performed by Annalene Beechey. Annalene gives a very passionate performance.

Please Stay- Jeff Nicholson- Another incredibly catchy song with lovely lyrics.

Scrapbook- John Barr- I enjoyed this ballad which is beautifully performed by John. There is a nice mix of upbeat and slower songs on this album. Something for everyone.

Now- Wendy Somerville, Emily Tierney and Sarah Lark- I love this song. The voices sound stunning together.

My Daddy’s Girl- Anna Francolini-  Some great lyrics and a lovely vocal.

Clumsy Way To Fall In Love- Rebecca Lock and Stephen Ashfield-  One of the highlights of the album for me.  Rebecca Lock and Stephen Ashfield sound fantastic together and the song is very funny.

Too Tired- Patina Miller-  An amazing ballad, performed perfectly by Patina Miller.  Powerful and emotional, it is a stand out track.

Something About Her- Jon Lee-   I think this song has a great story and could be a musical within itself.  A pleasant song to listen to.

Falling For You- Stuart Matthew Price- I really like Stuart Matthew Price’s voice and this song perfectly suits it.

Sometimes-Louise Dearman-  A beautiful song, another highlight out of the album.

Partners in Rhyme- Rob Archibald and Verity Quade-  A song performed by the talented writers of this album. Another clever, comic song wonderfully performed by Rob and Verity.
