Ramin Karimloo: Broadway to Bluegrass

Event Date: 
Wednesday, May 22, 2013 - 7:30pm
Wednesday, May 22, 2013 - 10:00pm

For someone who has starred in the West End as Jean Valjean in Les Miserables and as the iconic Phantom in The Phantom of the Opera, Ramin Karimloo doesn't look like your average Olivier-nominated musical theater superstar. "I have a huge love for country and bluegrass, I love rock 'n' roll, and I love what I'm doing, so it was how to balance all that," he says of what was going on his head when a major label approached him about making an album.

Of course, with influences as diverse as The Tragically Hip, Johnny Cash, and Mumford and Sons, a straightforward album of covers was never really in the cards. Ramin, Karimloo's self-titled debut album, is a diary entry from one of the world's greatest vocal talents that includes not only his own compositions, but also covers of Bryan Adams and Muse songs and his own take on the mighty "Music of the Night" from Phantom of the Opera.
