Marty Thomas: Slow Dancing With a Boy [CD]
As a child he famously won Ed McMahon’s Junior Star Search over then-unknown Britney Spears. As an adult, Marty Thomas created a name for himself on Broadway in Xanadu, Wicked and The Secret Garden, on television’s Grace & Frankie, and has been a staple of the New York City nightlife for well over a decade. With his sophomore album “Slow Dancing With a Boy”, Marty takes his rightful place among the vocal icons that have long inspired him. Produced by Jamey Ray, this album explores the music of a young closeted mans coming of age memories, and dares to question the possibility of having lived those memories honestly and openly. Fusing pop and musical theatre music with a song stack that runs the gamut of Vanessa Williams to Les Miserables, this album features collaborations with The X-Factor’s Rachel Potter, Voctave’s Jamey Ray and viral sensation Mykal Kilgore. Whether you want to slow dance with a boy, a girl, or just dance by yourself for a while, this album celebrates love, hope and the healing and redemptive power of music.
