Friends with Wendy and Pete had a chat with award-winning singer Damien Leith as he embarks on a nostalgic journey through the legendary music of Roy Orbison for one night only at Hamer Hall in Melbourne in February 2023.
Damien Leith is a multi-talented artist that has made his mark in Australia as a singer, songwriter, producer, author, playwright and tv/radio host personality. He is also a singing master coach and has online courses to help artists improve their voice and help songwriters, write, record and release their own music.
The talented family man first captured the attention and affection of Australians when he contested the 2006 edition of Australian Idol – a series he went on to win. Since then, his career has skyrocketed, but he has remained charming, grounded and modest – securing him a place as a popular and well-loved Australian personality.
The show, Roy Orbison Orchestrated features elegant and uplifting arrangements of Roy’s timeless classics. Conducted by Sam Weller and masterfully arranged by Australia’s 2022 Young Composer winner, Emma Greenhill, the show will feature Roy’s biggest hits including Oh, Pretty Woman, You Got It, Crying and so much more. Filled with emotion, and world class musicianship, Damien will breathe new life into fan-favourites and raise the roof in celebration of one of the world’s greatest singers.
Damien has always had a strong affinity with Roy Orbison’s music. His multiplatinum album Roy – A Tribute to Roy Orbison stayed in the ARIA Top 20 chart for 22 weeks. Recorded in Nashville and executive produced by Roy’s late wife, Barbara Orbison and many musicians and writers associated with Roy Orbison during his career.
Tickets to Damien Leith’s Roy Orbison Orchestrated are on sale now.
