years following the release of West End performer Meredith Braun's
critically acclaimed debut album 'Someone Else's Story',
Meredith returns with her new solo album, 'When Love Is Gone'.
The title for the release comes from the Paul Williams song
Meredith performed in the iconic film 'The Muppet Christmas
Carol', which celebrates its 25th anniversary this year.
Meredith's new 2017 recording of 'When Love Is Gone' marks the first
time she has performed the song since recording the original version
for the 1992 film soundtrack.
'When Love Is
the form of a narrative song cycle, based around both specially
selected material and original songs. The material featured ranges
from musical theatre to singer-songwriter ballads, brought together
by Meredith's own self-penned and elegantly crafted musical
arrangements. Songs featured include a
heart-rending interpretation of Stephen Sondheim's 'With So Little To Be
Sure Of', a rare and unique cover of Andrew Lloyd Webber's 'There's
Me' (from the original production of 'Starlight Express', arr. James
McConnel) Barry Manilow's evocatively tragic composition 'Sandra'
and the premiere studio recording of Agnetha Faltskog's powerful and
passionate solo ABBA song 'I'm Still Alive'. New material is
represented by two compositions written by Meredith ('Hold Me' and
'Everything That's Me') and 'The Rules', a
hauntingly dramatic original song written especially for the album by musical
theatre writers Stephen Keeling and Shaun McKenna.
