I am proud to announce the official release of my latest recording – Tell me so
Greg Englert – Sydney, Australia – All instruments, composer, producer, arranger.
Stephanie Foster – Australia - Vocals
15 year old Stephanie Foster will bring you to tears with her sweet and innocent rendition of a love song.
To celebrate 25 years as a music producer Sydney based composer, producer, musician Greg Englert decided to re-visit his previously released music. Rather than re-mix and use alternate takes Greg started a project to have his favourite singers and musicians from around the world re-imagine his compositions in their own special ways. The result is a series of epic special edition recordings ranging from Pop and Rock, through Jazz and Swing to Civil War Movie genres.
‘Tell me so’ was originally released in 2004 as part of the album ‘Here with you’ (GEM-002), (Available at all good on-line stores) by the composer Greg Englert. The original version was a light pop love ballad.
Greg handed the re-imagining of this song to a delightful 15 year old young lady Stephanie Foster. Greg met Stephanie when he performed as part of the New Empire Ballroom Ragtime Dance Orchestra in Australia in which Stephanie played violin. It didn’t take long for Greg to find out that Stephanie was also an extremely talented Lyric Coloratura Soprano singer. Greg immediately saw that such a beautiful, sweet and innocent voice was perfect for his song ‘Tell me so’ however focusing on a much lower range than Stephanie was used to revealing a warm and solid lower range! The result is a delightful song that is guaranteed to move your emotions and bring you to tears, it is just that sweet. Whilst recording the song Greg also asked Stephanie to try some of her Lyric Colurtura singing and out came this amazing voice! Wow! So we had to put a little teaser on the end of the song. You will be amazed at the talent in such a young person! A future, Sarah Brightman?
