Michael Bolton

Mb

Having sold 53 million albums worldwide and winning multiple Grammies for Best Male Vocalist, Michael Bolton has recently taken on an extraordinary artistic challenge. In his newest album, Bolton Swings Sinatra, Michael reinvents classic songs made famous by music legend Frank Sinatra. This collection finds Bolton singing classics like “New York, New York,” “My Funny Valentine,” “Night and Day,” “Fly Me to the Moon,” and “That’s Life”.

“Sinatra sang with such power and such vulnerability,” said Bolton. “He was a great storyteller. I just tried to tell some of theses stories in my own way. He is one of the very few singers with such a dynamic vocal and personal range that he could sing with complete authority, strength, and conviction on moment and in another stir us to our core with a tenderness and a sense of vulnerability that would deliver the pure emotion and meaning the composer intended.”

Bolton is no stranger to broadening his musical horizons. In the past, he has sung with Luciano Pavarotti and Ray Charles, played guitar with B.B. King, written songs for Barbra Streisand and KISS, and even been sampled on a track by hip-hop superstar Kanye West.

The album also includes a duet song by Bolton and his fiancée Nicollette Sheridan, who is best known for her role on the hit television series Desperate Housewives. Of this duet, he relates, “Nicollette always sang around me until she thought I was listening – then she’d get self-conscious. But I always told her she had a wonderful pitch and a beautiful tone. I played her “The Second Time Around” and suggested she sing it with me, and she just lit it up. The song just captured what we’ve been feeling – that love really is better further down the road, like the song says, with both feet on the ground.”

On August 27th, Michael Bolton will be performing in the North Fork Theatre in Westbury, New York.
