Alfie Boe

Alfie Boe

Alfie Boe has been described as “one of the U.K.’s most technically gifted talents” by All-Music and as “absolutely extraordinary” by award-winning director Baz Luhrmann, who cast Boe in his acclaimed 2002 Broadway production of Puccini’s La Boheme in 2002. He has also been dubbed “opera’s working-class hero” by Britain’s Sunday Express — a declaration that sums up Boe’s unique appeal. It’s not just his thrilling voice that has captivated audiences, it’s also his dramatic personal story: working-class singer goes from laboring in a factory as a car mechanic to becoming a platinum-selling artist sharing stages with such artists as Queen, Alice Cooper, and Renee Fleming, as well performing at the Diamond Jubilee Concert for Queen Elizabeth II and the Royal Family on the balcony at Buckingham Palace.

So perhaps it is apt that Boe has titled his latest album Storyteller. A labor of love, it is a true reflection of who he is as a performer. Taking inspiration from Jeff Buckley’s approach to Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah,” Boe strips to the heart some of his favorite classic songs — like “Bridge Over Troubled Water,” “Angie,” “It’s Now or Never,” and “Please Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood” — and brings their beauty to the surface while creating texture with both a band and a traditional orchestra. Boe sang live with the band and orchestra, virtually conducting them as he sang, over a week-long stretch of 12-hour days.
