New Zealand’s own WILL MARTIN - The youngest man to top the UK Classical Charts, Announces New Album and NZ Tour. ~ The Voice You Must Hear To Believe ~
His debut album – ‘A NEW WORLD’ – went double platinum here in New Zealand, and when it was released in the United Kingdom it launched at Number 1, making him the youngest man in musical history to top the classical charts. Since then, internationally acclaimed recording artist and entertainer Will Martin has continued to grab global attention, with his electrifying stage presence, and versatile voice.
By no means a strictly classical singer, Will is renowned for his engaging performance style, alluring personality, and expressive voice across multiple musical genres. Live performances have included world-renowned stages and festivals from London’s Royal Albert Hall, Henley, and Hampton Court Palace, through to the Basel Military Tattoo in Switzerland.
He is a regular performer at the world’s most prestigious governmental ceremonies and international sporting events, at such illustrious venues as Westminster Abbey, Wembley Stadium, and Chicago’s Soldier Field. Closer to home, he’s enjoyed being the New Zealand Rugby Union’s national anthem singer of choice for ten All Blacks’ test matches.
Will is currently based in Los Angeles, but always calls NZ home !! He is internationally sought after as an entertainer and vocalist, as well as producer for various creative projects. His brand new album ‘BY REQUEST’, was produced in Europe, and features the City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra.
The songs were chosen by Will’s supporters and they combine to form an incredible tracklist of cinematic reimagining’s; including Leonard Cohen’s ‘Hallelujah’, Rod Stewart’s ‘Sailing’, Billy Joel’s ‘Piano Man’ as well as ‘Requiem For A Soldier’ (the theme from Steven Spielberg’s ‘Band Of Brothers’).
BY REQUEST will be released April 26th. Just in New Zealand for a short time, you can see Will performing his brand new orchestral album in its entirety.
