Join award-winning singer Damien Leith and a 28-piece concert orchestra as he takes you on a nostalgic journey through the legendary music of Roy Orbison in this stunning live album recording. Roy Orbison Orchestrated features elegant and uplifting arrangements of Roy’s timeless classics.
Damien has always had a strong affinity with Roy Orbison’s music. His 2011 multiplatinum album ‘Roy – A Tribute to Roy Orbison’ was executively produced by Roy’s late wife, Barbara Orbison, and stayed in the ARIA Top 20 chart for 22 weeks.
Damien Leith’s passion for Roy Orbison’s music has found a new life, being performed live with
incredibly powerful orchestral arrangements.
The live show features Roy’s biggest hits including ‘Oh, Pretty Woman’, ‘You Got it’, ‘Crying’ and so much more. Filled with emotion, and world class musicianship, Damien breathes new life into fan-favourites as a celebration of one of the world’s greatest singers.
“Damien’s portrayal of these great songs will allow fans to relive the memory of Roy Orbison for years to come. I love Damien’s voice, and the orchestration of my and Roy’s songs is beautiful. Thank you, Damien. You nailed it!” said Joe Melson.
Roy Orbison Orchestrated was recorded live at Hamer Hall, Arts Centre Melbourne in a spine tingling sold-out live performance on February 11, 2023
For Damien Leith himself, Roy Orbison is still one of his biggest influences, and it shows in the care he takes when paying homage to the great man’s music on stage. “Roy was a stylus, he created his own unique sound which made him stand out over so many other artists,” says Damien. “His incredible voice, mixed with dramatic pop/opera melodies became his signature. Working with Barbara Orbison on my album Roy – A Tribute To Roy Orbison was amazing. It was incredible to have her support and confidence in me, especially in interpreting Roy’s songs and giving them my own stamp”.
Roy Orbison Orchestrated will be released on Friday 3rd November 2023.
