On Thursday, November 8 2012. New York City entertainer and bon vivant David Raleigh takes the stage at Melbourne’s live music venue The Butterfly Club. In a special show already performed in New York City, Seattle, Byron Bay and Adelaide, Raleigh is joined on stage with his producer, Australian singer/songwriter and former MusicOz Artist Of The YearNathan Leigh Jones.
Hot off the heals of Raleigh’s wildly successful “Beginning Again” (2010) and Jones’ acclaimed sophomore release Sooner Or Later (2011), these two piano men will join forces and put their spin on each other’s music as well as showcasing brand new material from their upcoming projects.
David Raleigh has had long standing engagements at New York’s iconic staples such as The Waldorf Astoria, The Pierre, and The Ritz Carlton, as well as performing all over Europe and Asia. “I Do!”, the lead single from his most recent album, charted in MTV/Logo’s top 10 for ten weeks in a row. The video, directed by Tony Award winner Alan Cumming, cemented Raleigh’s position as “the Nat King Cole for a new generation” (Time Out Hong Kong).
Nathan Leigh Jones is no stranger to the microphone and, while not writing, recording and producing music, lives a double life as a voice artist. He is a fixture on Australian TV and radio, particularly his regular work on Nickelodeon and digital free – to – air channel Eleven. Jones’ latest single “Beautiful You” made waves earlier this year on Rage, while also being the #1 most requested song on MAX.
