BRADLEY WALSH TO RELEASE DEBUT ALBUM “CHASING DREAMS”
Released November 25th
Sony Music is proud to announce the debut album release from Bradley Walsh, ‘Chasing Dreams’. The actor, presenter and comedian has recorded a collection of his favourite songs, to be released on November 25th.
Bradley’s diverse career has spanned across a wide range of mediums and genres, allowing him to become a well-respected and familiar figure in the entertainment industry. Although best known as a TV personality, Bradley has another string to his bow, as an old-school crooner. Personally picking his favourite swing classics, Bradley wants to pay homage to his musical heroes:
“I grew up listening to legends such as Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr and Tony Bennett,” said Bradley Walsh. “From those early days I’ve always been a huge fan of this style of music and now to have the opportunity to record some of the greatest songs and arrangements ever written alongside a fifty-four piece orchestra and band is absolutely thrilling.”
Highlighting another of his talents, Bradley also co-wrote the title track, ‘Chasing Dreams’, a track that nods to the work of the legends of the genre.
Bradley is perhaps most well-known as a much loved TV Presenter and is one of the most popular faces on ITV, presenting The Chase, The Celebrity Chase, Keep It In The Family and Live At The London Palladium amongst others. He is also a team captain alongside Frank Lampard on ITV sports and comedy panel show Play To The Whistle. Autumn 2016 saw the 1000th episode of The Chase
As well as presenting, Bradley is an accomplished dramatic and comedic actor. Bradley played the lead role, Detective Sergeant Ronnie Brookes, in ITV’s hugely successful series ‘Law & Order: UK’. Broadcast in 18 countries and hitting audience ratings of almost 7 million at its peak in the UK, it is a constant hit with audiences.
