Broadway Records announced the release of 16 Stories which contains 16 previously unrecorded tracks by Adam Gwon (Ordinary Days), Peter Kellogg (Desperate Measures), Peter Mills (The Hello Girls), and more.
The recording features The Australian Discovery Orchestra, lead by principal conductor Kevin Purcell. In addition to Gwon, Kellogg, Mills, and Purcell, other writers include Nikko Benson, Andre Catrini, Joe Chindamo and Steve Vizard, Craig Christie, Joel Evans, Oliver Houser, Victor Kazan, Kooman and Dimond, Drew Lane, Greg Nabours, Jess Newman, Adryan Russ, Alan Schmuckler, Marcus Stevens, Stephen Weiner, and Sam Willmott.
"16 Stories is an album that sets out to showcase the extraordinary influence that American musical theatre has globally," says Purcell. "The audience for contemporary musical theatre is huge when you look at the numbers across the combined streaming services. Listeners also love singing the songs from contemporary musicals as they often relate directly to the experience of their own lives, and that is true of the songs on this record."
International vocalists featured are Stephanie Adams (Camelot), Mariana Bravo (Rio Uphill), Chris Dwan (Off-Broadway Little Shop Of Horrors), Claire DeJean (NBC's The Voice), Michael D’Elia (Dorian's Descent), Scott Dreier (Doris and Me), Michael J.
