Could This Be The Biggest Concept Album Since War Of The Worlds?
When U.S. Songwriter's Hall of Fame member Ross Hemsworth began writing a few songs based around a short story he had penned about a vampire, little did he know how big the venture was to become!
Twelve excellent pop/rock songs, together with a deep-voiced narration, make this an album worth listening to.
The concept album has already attracted interest from screenplay writers, music blogs, a London theatre company and a number of record labels!
Ross however, has taken the brave step along with his writing partner Paul Blackhurst, of releasing the album through their own Blackworth Music label with the release due on November 16th this year.
Ross said today, "I have always loved Jeff Wayne's work on War of the Worlds, and I just wish I had his budget and a big orchestra on our project, but maybe one day"
Although Ross played most of the instruments on the album, he brought in a variety of great vocalists including Felicity Bush, Saz Slaughter, Sam Hopkins, and of course Paul Blackhurst. The narrator 'CHAOS' The Vampire Hunter, is played by the fabulous Trevor Jones.
The first single from the album is likely to be the extremely catchy "That's How The Nightmares Began" with vocals by Felicity Bush.
Paul and Ross are now hoping Hollywood and maybe a few TV moguls want to get in touch and talk about TV and film rights to this new kind of Vampire adventure set to music.
It's certainly a project to watch out for over the Christmas period.
Blackworth Music are also looking for opportunities to work with territory record labels for physical sales distribution.
