“It’s a very personal album to me,” says Fenton. “But I think actually the personal element extends to anybody listening, because we recorded in a very unadorned way – right close up to the piano. You can kind of hear every squeak and Simon breathing. It’s like you’re standing right next to him and he’s playing for you.”
Simon Chamberlain is one of London’s most sought after piano players and has worked with George for numerous years. Together, they co-wrote the musical Mr. Henderson Presents.
George has written for film, theatre and television. He has received 5 Oscar nominations and won multiple Ivor Novello, BAFTA, & Emmy Awards, and a Classical Brit.
The 24-track album is available on digital platforms today, July 31st. This will be followed by a limited edition 17-track vinyl and CD on August 14th available through www.georgefenton.com.
