Watch Daniel Bravo & Jessica Pardoe sing from new British musical Soho Dreams

Daniel Bravo & Jessica Pardoe sing in the recording studio

New British musical Soho Dreams has released a six-song EP alongside a music video featuring Daniel Bravo & Jessica Pardoe.

Daniel Bravo – currently wowing audiences as Sebastien Valmont in Cruel Intentions at The Other Palace in London – unites with Jessica Pardoe to sing When I Look In The Mirror, joined by musical director Ryan Mackenzie.

Co-creator Rob McLoughlin says of the music video: “Their voices blend deliciously as the characters reveal their polar opposite views of a district which Michael hates and which Sammy seems wedded to.

“It’s a big moment in the show, their futures depend upon which vision of a changing Soho they’ll opt for.”

The song is one of six on the new EP release from the upcoming British musical Soho Dreams, available now Spotify, Apple Music, and streamers worldwide from Bucks Records (part of the Bucks Music Group.

The show set in 1980s London captures the changing era as Thatcherism takes hold and as Scotland Yard attempts to end corruption and clean-up a district where you can be anyone or anything at anytime!

The six songs also include ‘Burning Bridges’ performed by Barry Keenan as Jack ‘The Flash’ Goodman (who owns the part of Soho which the police don’t control), Lee Turner as ‘Tommy’ with ‘Love Tonight’; and ‘Show Me The Door’ by Jessica Pardoe who also sings the anthem ‘This Is My Life’ and the ballad ‘Child’ which were released as singles a few weeks ago.

Composer Mark Russell adds: “There are 16 original compositions, and the show reflects the changing music of the time as punk gives way to New Romantics and the Quincy Jones era.

“It’s energetic, full of dance and music as well as being heart-wrenching and an emotional rollercoaster.”

The show has been developed and workshopped in Manchester and London with Rosalind Parker as director and with advice and support from the team at The Lowry in Salford.

Plans for further releases are under discussion.
