They will come together with singers Richard Hartley and Claire O’Brien and a live band for the gig at Phoenix Arts Club, off Charing Cross Road, on Thursday 6 February 2020.

Rendering pop and rock sensibilities with dramatic orchestral arrangements, Cullinan’s music straddles both classical and contemporary with dexterity, creating songs that are cinematic and raw, vibrant, emotionally charged and carefully layered.

His work includes music for Kathy Burke’s West End production of Lady Windermere’s Fan. The most recent of his three studio albums, The Violent Language of Portraits, featured McAlmont, West End and Broadway star Rachel Tucker and musical theatre performer Andrew Derbyshire alongside performances from Burke and actor Chris New.

David McAlmont is a prolific singer and songwriter, rising to fame through his collaboration with ex-Suede guitarist Bernard Butler. More recently, he has collaborated on albums with composer Michael Nyman and songwriter Alex Webb and performed his shows Lady Sings the Blues at Carnegie Hall celebrating Billie Holiday and girl.boy.child exploring LGBT+ histories.

Shanay Holmes most recently co-starred in the musical adaptation of High Fidelity at London’s Turbine Theatre after appearing in The Bridges of Madison County at Menier Chocolate Factory and Jesus Christ Superstar at Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre and playing Glinda in The Wizard of Oz at Birmingham Rep. She has also been in other productions in the West End and around the UK including Rent, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Close To You, The Bodyguard and Thriller Live.
