Billboard Heatseekers Debut for Sutton Foster!
Barnes and Noble In-Store TODAY! Rave Reviews For Solo Debut Wish
Sutton Foster’s debut CD Wish will debut at #29 on BILLBOARD’S HEATSEEKERS CHART.
Foster’s Ghostlight release features 15 songs culled from the worlds of jazz, pop, Broadway and cabaret, and highlights her eclectic choices, ranging from Patty Griffin’s ‘Nobody’s Cryin’’ to Duke Ellington’s ‘I Like the Sunrise’…from Frank Loesser’s ‘Warm All Over’ to John Denver’s ‘Sunshine on My Shoulders’. Foster recently performed two songs from the CD on NBC4-TV’s Weekend Today Show in NY, days after her sold-out concert at Lincoln Center.
Tony winner Foster currently stars as Princess Fiona in the smash ‘Shrek The Musical.’ Ben Brantley of The New York Times recently compared her to musical royalty: “She has emerged as an inspired, take-charge musical comedian in the tradition of Danny Kaye and Carol Burnett…”
Here are some Wish-related press quotes from recent days:
USA TODAY selected the ‘Wish’ track I Like the Sunrise as one of their ‘LISTEN UP MUSIC PICKS’ OF THE WEEK. “The Broadway belter reveals a sparkling purity covering this Duke Ellington classic on Wish...”
NY TIMES - Her soprano is sweet and her delivery relaxed; her presence is so natural that she suggests a softer version of the young Julia Roberts…the corniest storybook mythology attaches itself to Sutton Foster as magically as dew appears on a spring flower and revives for a moment your silliest childhood fantasies of eternal innocence and happily ever after.
VARIETY: Foster's just-released and highly enjoyable new Ghostlight CD, Wish." She starts out with a banjo-primed I'm Beginning to See the Light" (from a quartet of writers including Duke Ellington), then switches from genre to genre, finding success on every plane. From the pop world came Carole King and Gerry Goffin's Up on the Roof" and John Denver's Sunshine on My Shoulders," both of which sounded very good indeed. Current- day songwriters -- who, like Tesori, were introduced from the stage -- included Christine Lavin, with the raucous Air Conditioner"; Jeff Blumenkrantz, with the tenderly effective My Heart Was Set on You"; and Craig Carnelia, whose Flight" was one of the evening's standouts.
