After his critically acclaimed debut album, Guy Haines followed that up with another album filled with great show tunes.
Guy Haines is an enigmatic figure in the world of musical theatre, rarely appearing on stage (and never showing his face) but logging several dozen appearances on Broadway-themed albums from producer Bruce Kimmel.
This, his second solo album, features classic showtunes and some lesser-known gems, including a few premiere recordings from songwriters like Harvey Schmidt & Tom Jones ("The Fantasticks"), Craig Carnelia ("Working"), and others. Guy is joined on three songs by some of musical theatre's up and coming ingenues: Jessica Rush ("Paint Your Wagon" in Los Angeles), Kerry Butler ("Bat Boy," "Hairspray," and "Beauty and the Beast" in New York), and Juliana A. Hansen ("Thoroughly Modern Millie" national tour).
