‘Beyond the Veil’ Acoustic Show DVD on Sale Now!

Beyond the veil KR news 3An ‘official bootleg’ DVD of the acoustic show recorded during the ‘Fire and the Quest’ weekend in September 2015, celebrating 10 years of Clive Nolan Musicals is available for sale now!
This show features a wide variety of Clive’s material performed by a stellar cast of singers and musicians.
Clive plays piano, sings and entertains alongside artists including Christina Booth, Alan Reed, Paul Manzi, Chris Lewis, Paul Scott, Agnieszka Swita, Victoria Bolley, Gemma Louise Edwards, Verity Smith, as well as the instrumental talents of Mark Westwood, Scott Higham and Kylan Amos. The cost of the DVD package (full colour cover and 2 DVDs) is £15 and it is available from our ONLINE SHOP! The profits raised from this project will go towards the making of Clive’s third musical ‘King’s Ransom’.

Clive Nolan: “I hope this DVD provides a wonderful memento of that terrific Saturday afternoon concert. I have compiled and edited the show in its entirety, ‘warts and all’, so please be aware there is a lot of chatting and story telling (you can get straight to the songs with the chapter selections). It also needs to be remembered that, sadly, the sound quality is limited because we only had the audio recorded on camera. It was a lot of fun doing this gig, and I really enjoyed working with all these excellent performers.
With the challenges I now face to record the new musical, ‘King’s Ransom’, every sale of this DVD will be a welcome contribution to the cause… Enjoy the show, and thanks in advance!”

'King's Ransom' is Written!

Clive Nolan KR news 2Clive Nolan: "Well that's it! My new musical 'King's Ransom' is now written!! I managed to write this one in less than two years, which is excellent! This show is epic on all sorts of levels and features some great new characters as well as some old favourites! There's political intrigue, love, hate, action, despair, hope and a little magic all thrown into the mix.

I will spend a month or so adjusting and developing the instrumentation and orchestrations, and if all goes well, recording can begin early in the summer.

Stand fast, and set your compass straight... King is coming back!"

'King's Ransom' Artwork and Recording Plans!

KR artwork designed KR newsClive Nolan: "I’m pleased to say that ‘King’s Ransom’, my new musical, will be released on ‘Verglas Records'! It has been the label for Arena for the last 20 years and I’m hoping some of that gold dust will rub off on this new show. King’s Ransom is set in the same ‘universe’ as ‘Alchemy’ and takes place about two years after those events. The characters of Professor King, William Gardelle and Eva Bonaduce are still with us, alongside a host of new and vibrant protagonists. The ‘book’, lyrics and most of the music is now written, and my guess is that recording will begin in the summer, with a release early next year. I will announce the cast and musicians shortly.

Meanwhile, here is the wonderful artwork that will be the principal image for 'King’s Ransom': this picture has been created by the excellent  DC Comics artist, Mark Buckingham. 

Like both the precious shows (‘She’ and ‘Alchemy’), this has been a major writing project for me, and it’s not over yet. Nevertheless, I look forward to recording 'King’s Ransom', and hearing all those fantastic musicians and singers do what they do best!

I’d like to thank all of you who have been supporting my musicals over these years. I hope you will enjoy what the future holds. The adventure continues…"
