Following the release of Meredith’s critically acclaimed debut solo album ‘Someone Else’s Story’ in 2012, Stage Door are pleased to announce the release of an exclusive “Deluxe Edition” which will be released across all digital platforms on May 5th, 2013

The new “Deluxe Edition” of ‘Someone Else’s Story’ will feature 5 additional bonus tracks from Meredith’s back catalogue. These include the debut of two recordings from James McConnel and Anthony Drewe’s musical adaptation of ‘The Canterville Ghost’ and an unreleased pop version of ‘Day Of My Life’, a song from the 1998 musical ‘Killing Rasputin’ reimagined as an anthem for the Millennium

The album ‘Someone Else’s Story’ is a hand-picked collection of songs from contemporary musical theatre, each one of them telling a very personal story. Composers include Stephen Sondheim, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Michel Legrand, Stiles and Drewe and Stephen Schwartz. Recorded over a three month period at London’s Angel Studios, the stunning intimate collection features Arrangements and Musical Direction by Paul Bateman (Musical Director for Sarah Brightman, Lesley Garrett).

REVIEWS...

"A brilliant exhibition of Braun’s talents; highly recommended."
- Broadway World (Read Complete Review)

"New Zealand soprano Meredith Braun has been a West End fixture since 1990 appearing in Sunset Boulevard, The Secret Garden, Les Miserables and The Phantom Of The Opera. Her first solo album 'Someone Else's Story' is a gem. Two Stephen Sondheim medleys rub shoulders with 'Meadowlark' (The Baker's Wife), 'Wait A Bit' (Just So), the title song from 'Love Never Dies', plus four songs from movies, 'Papa Can You Hear Me?' (Yentl), 'You Must Love Me' (Evita), 'Take Me Home' (One From the Heart) and 'Rainbow Connection' (The Muppet Movie), which is also sung in French as a bonus track. Arrangements for piano and cello are perfect. Highly recommended. 
- 'On Stage' Magazine (Australia)

"Braun brings her warm, clear soprano to an interesting selection of show ballads..."
- 'Stage Whispers' Magazine (Australia)

"Fans of musical theatre will love this debut release from Auckland-born Meredith Braun, best known as a star of London’s West End. Braun also acted alongside Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy in the 1992 film The Muppet Christmas Carol. Now she has released her debut solo album, Someone Else’s Story, a collection of songs from theatre productions, including Chess, Evita and Sweeney Todd. Kermit must have made an impression on the singer because his classic Rainbow Connection is included twice – in English and the French L’Arc-en-Ciel."
- 'Next' Magazine (New Zealand)
