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 LamentRosemary Ashe– An upbeat, fun song with some very clever lyrics.

SorryAnnalene Beechey– A gorgeous song, beautifully performed by Annalene Beechey. Annalene gives a very passionate performance.

Please StayJeff 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.

NowWendy 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 LoveRebecca 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 TiredPatina 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.

SometimesLouise Dearman–  A beautiful song, another highlight out of the album.

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