American music fans are in for such a treat because Alfie Boe, alas, has finally hit these shores, bringing a world of talent with him. He has the voice of an angel, singing with such passion, compassion, beauty and poise. This is a once-in-a-lifetime presence, with a voice that is truly a gift from God.

"Alfie" is an amazing album, Alfie Boe's best to date, (and yes I have them all). There is a depth to this album. Alfie infuses himself into each selection, giving each song a part of his soul and then motivating you as listener to connect with it in a very personal way regardless of the individual genre. The man can sing it all and sing it beautifully. Well done, Mr. Boe. You are so much more than just a singer-- you, sir, are truly an Artist!

Alfie Boe, often called Britain's favorite tenor, has risen to the ranks of being able to sell an album/CD using only his first name as a title. While to some that may suggest egotism, knowing Alfie Boe's stage presence and history of warmth with audiences where he performs it only can seem personal - a sense of honesty that doesn't require a lot of hoopla in order to sell a new release. On this new CD Boe (or should we simply refer to him as Alfie?!) offers a selection of beautiful tunes and songs, show tunes and standards, that he makes his own in his beautifully rich tenor voice and communicative singing.

As a tribute to the entire musical spectrum (he is known for opera such as 'La Boheme', light opera such as Les Misérables) he teams with Robert Plant of Led Zeppelin fame in 'Song to the Siren' and honors musical theater's brightest star Michael Ball in singing a duet from 'Les Misérables' - 'Empty Chairs and Empty Tables', the solo spot for Ball in the original London cast as Marius in 'Les Misérables'.

Alfie Boe's selection of songs is a solid one and one that will surely please the growing following this talented young tenor is gathering. The songs on this CD are as follows: ' Being Alive' from 'Company', 'Maria' from "West Side Story', 'When I Fall In Love', 'The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face', a lovely and gentle 'When You Wish Upon a Star' from Disney's film 'Pinocchio', 'Music of the Night' from 'Phantom of the Opera', 'Someone to Watch Over Me' from 'Oh, Kay!', 'Song to the Siren (with Robert Plant)', 'In My Daughter's Eyes' 'Empty Chairs and Empty Tables (with Michael Ball) from 'Les Misérables', 'Wheels of a Dream' from 'Ragtime', 'It Was a Very Good Year', and 'Who Am I' from 'Les Misérables.'
This is one of Alfie Boe's strongest releases to date and a very appropriate on for this season or any season. He can bring warmth into any home! Grady Harp, June 12

I often get bored listening to an entire album, but I have this CD on repeat, and have listened to it since it was delivered earlier in the morning. Great sounding CD, and great selection of music! And, YES, he could sing the telephone book, and I would enjoy it!

For those who wonder what all the noise is about perhaps introductions are in order:

Alfie Boe is a British tenor with a "Cinderella" backstory (if Cindy was at it for almost 20yrs). Alfie was working as a mechanic in a car factory, singing to relieve the boredom, when a customer suggested he audition for a London opera company. He took a chance, got hired for the chorus, toured for a year, and decided to get some real training. Attended the Royal College of Music (4 yrs), National Opera Studio, began singing in UK houses, entered the Royal Opera House's Young Artists' Program when Baz Lurhmann (yeah, the movie director) picked Alfie for the lead his Broadway production of La Boheme in 2002. The principle cast won a Tony.

Alfie toured with the Boston Pops, sang leads in practically every UK opera house, several in Europe, began recording. Then in 2010 Cameron Macintosh, the producer, chose him to play Jean Valjean in the concert celebrating the 25th anniversary of "Les Miserables." Alfie took some heat from the opera establishment for "lowering himself" by singing in a musical. The Les Mis crowd didn't agree. Mid-show standing ovations are extremely rare in musicals, Alfie got over 4 minutes. His career took off in England, and when the 25th Les Mis dvd played on PBS in the States, it took off here too.

Alfie has a motto, "There are only two kinds of music: good and bad. I just want to sing the good stuff." He's a fan of rock (Led Zep, Pink Floyd), roll (Elvis), gospel, blues, jazz, folk, country, musicals, standards, ballads, classical. With a marvelous voice and all that training, if he loves a song, and thinks his voice will suit it, he'll sing it.

It's been awhile since we've heard good, trained voices singing anything.

I am so happy that Alfie Boe's music is now available in the US. He has one of the most amazing voices that I have heard in recent times! I love listening to every song, from Les Mis to opera, ballads, show tunes, and now even rock and jazz. He is able to sing them all with beauty and passion. This new album features a wide mix of amazing songs. He does indeed have a gift and I'm so glad that he's sharing it with us!
