Barratt Waugh

  • Barratt Waugh
    Barratt Waugh has been a busy man for the last 2 years performing and working on his new project, but it’s been a long and hard road.

    Barratt Waugh first came to the world’s attention in 1997 when he featured on ITV talent show “My Kind Of People” when he wowed audiences and TV producers with his unique voice. He then went on to perform on another ITV show “My Kind of Music” and was immediately snapped up by management and then a production deal with Clive Black and Sir Cliff Richard’s Label Black Knight Productions. Barratt supported Sir Cliff at the Royal Albert Hall for a record breaking 40 nights and then the NIA Birmingham for his millennium concert, featuring in two of his DVDs, which sold over a million copies.

    Barratt was then signed on to Warner Classics International where he created his first album “I Love You, Goodbye” (featuring Sir Cliff Richard backing vocals) with the help of the incredible producer/composer John Cameron. “making this album was to me, a wonder. As it all happened around me I couldn’t believe how much was involved and how hard everyone involved had worked to bring together the most beautiful sounds. I felt honoured to be a part of it all”.

    Don Black, the famous songwriter was quoted as saying “Barratt Waugh, a voice not just for today, but for many tomorrows”

    Barratt's album was released in 8 countries following appearances all over the globe. Barratt appeared on QVC America as part of his tour and became the “fastest selling debut artist since the birth of the channel”. No small achievement.

    During this time Barratt also reached number 14 in the Billboard Club Play chart before being hit with a near fatal illness, putting a stop to his album plans. Warner Music also came to a close before the completion of Barratt’s promotional project, which in many ways was a good thing for Barratt, leaving him free to take his time recovering from the brain abscess which threatened his life.

    After 3 brain operations and much therapy, Barratt, over the coming months regained his strength. During this time he awakened a love for writing and soon was back on his feet in the studio laying down his new ideas. A single project followed with “Skip a Beat” with a 102 school tour which achieved a number 5 on The Box music channel and a whole new set of screaming fans.

    Next came his 2nd album “Much Love…” which featured Sir Cliff Richard in the TV commercial as a voiceover.

    “I’m so grateful to Sir Cliff. He showed me the most amazing support and I knew that he believed in me” – Barratt Waugh.

    Barratt’s album was adored by his fans, and still receives messages almost every day complimenting this work.

    Barratt took some time to travel in 2011 and spent 5 months in Australia. During his visit it was agreed that his 1st album would be released. As word spread he gained the support of Australia's biggest Radio show host, Alan Jones. After just 1 interview Barratt's album rose to number 1 in the JB Hifi classical chart. Following this he went on tour with Australian artist Marty Rhone which was a huge success and featured in a music video as the love interest for the amazingly talented Paris Wells. Barratt lans to return to Australia this year with new new music.

    Today, Barratt is better than ever. His new album shows the true depths of his voice, with tones not heard before.

    “I’ve drawn from other influences from my childhood. I was brought up on the music of the 70s and 80s and really dug deep to bring them through, though still remaining true to my own voice and my own style. I’ve really enjoyed making this album, and I hope it shows. I just can’t wait for everyone to hear it!”

    His new album will be available this year as a digital download. PLEASE DOWNLOAD AND ENJOY!
