Join singer Damien Leith for Roy Orbison Orchestrated

Damien Leith is set to take the stage at Her Majesty's Theatre for Roy Orbison Orchestrated on 10th of May, 2024.

Roy Orbison Orchestrated features uplifting arrangements of Roy’s timeless classics. Conducted and masterfully arranged by Australia’s 2022 Young composer winner, Emma Greenhill. The show will feature Roy’s biggest hits including ‘Oh, Pretty Woman’, ‘You Got it’, ‘Crying’ and so much more.

Filled with emotion, and world class musicianship, Damien will breathe new life into fan-favourites and raise the roof in celebration of one of the world’s greatest singers.

“Very few voices excite me, but I fell in love with Damien’s voice when I heard it. His unique voice has inspired me to write again, much in the same way Roy Orbison’s voice inspired me to write,” says Joe Melson (co-writer of ‘Crying’, ‘Only the Lonely’, ‘Blue Bayou’).

Damien has always had a strong affinity with Roy Orbison’s music. His multi platinum album ‘Roy – A Tribute to Roy Orbison’ stayed in the ARIA Top 20 chart for 22 weeks . Recorded in Nashville and executive produced by Roy’s late wife, Barbara Orbison and many musicians and writers associated with Roy Orbison during his career.

Barbara Orbison loved working with Damien: “Damien, I applaud you for doing a Roy album. Thank you. We wish you every bit of luck and success. You got it!”

For Damien Leith himself, Roy Orbison is still one of his biggest influences, and it shows in the care he takes when paying homage to the great man’s music on stage. “Roy was a stylus, he created his own unique sound which made him stand out over so many other artists,” says Damien.

“His incredible voice, mixed with dramatic pop/opera melodies became his signature. Working with Barbara on my album Roy – A Tribute To Roy Orbison was amazing. It was incredible to have her support and confidence in me, especially in interpreting Roy’s songs and giving them my own stamp. Also, while recording that album I met Joe Melson – who co-wrote Only The Lonely and Crying – and we have since become good friends and write together online almost every week”.

“Damien’s voice is superb and he sings from the heart,” says Joe.
