Scotland native Euan Morton may be the most gifted male vocalist to have emerged from the musical theatre in the new millennium. The singing actor made his Broadway debut in Taboo, earning a 2004 Tony nomination for his performance as Boy George, the much-in-the-news singer and composer who rose to fame and international acclaim in the 80s via the pop group Culture Club. Morton, a Theatre World Award winner for his Broadway bow, is one of the few singers comfortable performing any genre of music: he tackled the songs of Boy George in the aforementioned Taboo, scored in a Town Hall evening of show tunes, and on his debut solo recording, NewClear, he thrillingly performs a host of new and classic pop-rock tunes.
Morton boasts a smooth, rich tenor that he skillfully uses in the ten tracks that comprise the Lyric Partners release. On this disc his singing is reminiscent of two pop-music icons: Morton sings with the simple straightforwardness of Paul Simon and the open-heartedness of the late Karen Carpenter. His vocal delivery is never too much nor too little-he seems to find the perfect way to perform this eclectic collection of tunes.
"Scotland native Euan Morton may be the most gifted male vocalist to have emerged from the musical theatre in the new millennium"
The high point of the recording is Morton's beautiful rendition of Leonard Cohen's
'Hallelujah,' which he begins with tender tones and builds to a full-voiced climax. It's a truly moving, haunting performance, perhaps the final word on this much-performed 80s ballad.
Other highlights include the title track, 'NewClear,' which was penned by Mark Underwood; the catchy 'Closer & Closer,' written by Chris Judge and Greg Friel; Dan Bern's 'Chelsea Hotel,' which asserts that "new love is beautiful but new love is sad"; a powerful version of William P. McCord's heartbreaker 'At This Moment' and 'Pie in the Sky,' a tune from Boy George's Tony-nominated Taboo score
