ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
BYRON NEASE - In Concert
Jane Pauley called him “Transcendent!”
Angela Lansbury said, “He is a feast of musical inspiration!”

Byron Nease is a one-person musical performance. A native Californian and son of a third generation Nazarene preacher, this Broadway star compels us with his inspirational story. Byron has donated all sales of this album to Broadway Cares/Equity fights AIDS, as a generous gift from his years on Broadway.

Making his Broadway debut opposite Miss Lansbury as Patrick in Mame, he has, in the past twenty years, played most of the romantic heroes in the American Musical Theater. His portrayal of Raoul in Andrew Lloyd Weber’s The Phantom of the Opera contrasted sharply to his role as the Phantom in the beautiful Kopit/Yeston Phantom. Across the US audiences have thrilled to his portrayals in Camelot, Annie Get Your Gun, A Little Night Music, West Side Story, Carousel, South Pacific … to name a few.

Byron has concertized from Carnegie Hall to the Hollywood Bowl with dozens of symphonies under illustrious conductors Skitch Henderson and Peter Nero. Honored to have sung at The White House as well as in the Senate Chambers, he has also performed high atop New York City at the world renowned Rainbow Room and sung in over 100 countries around the world.

Growing up in the great tradition of leading men, Byron’s charisma has more to do with
heart than style … truth than bravado … courage and dignity than false machismo. This recording artist speaks and sings eloquently about his diverse career, celebrating the synthesis of life’s journey. Appearing with such luminaries as John Raitt, Bonnie Franklin, Dick Van Dyke, Mary Tyler Moore, George Burns and so many more … he has learned that “On stage, you only earn the right to be liked. It’s what you do off stage that counts”.

His one-man show From the Parsonage to Broadway inspired him to write his new book Behind the Mask, to be released early in 2008. On PBS, Mr. Nease starred in a show he co-authored Ageless Friends: Where Harold & Maude meets The Odd Couple with best selling author and former Senior’s Correspondent for NBC’s The Today Show, Frances Weaver. Also on PBS, Mr. Nease co-starred in Broadway Love Stories, The Healing Touch of Mercy and From the Parsonage to Broadway which both chronicles his quest to define religion from spirit.

Mr. Nease can be heard on the multi-platinum original Canadian cast recording of The Phantom of the Opera, Bittersuite, Love Stories, Leading Men Don’t Dance as well his own critically acclaimed solo CD Byron Nease – Listen To My Heart as well as his recently released live concert performance of From the Parsonage to Broadway.

“It seems my whole life has been about what it means to be a leading man … personally and professionally. I’m the luckiest guy I know because I love what I do … I am grateful”. Byron Nease has taken the lead on and off stage. He has found his own voice.

From the Parsonage to Broadway
A great album re-issued on CDBaby...excellent sound quality for a "live" recording...great singing and narrative by Byron...you will enjoy this album!!! Byron's version of "Hope Springs Eternal" is addicting...a wonderful song and a great performance.
