"Dreamin' About You"

Phillip Marlan was recently featured in G String's production Fame, where his attractive singing voice was shown off to good effect. This five-track EP, recorded in Sydney, is also a pleasing showcase of Marlan's talents as a singer and songwriter. This isn't for fans of hard rock it's tuneful pop music, easy on the ear, nicely sung and not too elaborately produced, so the voice, rather than sound effects, is the focus, Jamaica, the opening track, has the vaguely Caribbean lilt you would expect and the title track, penned by Marlan, is presented in two mixes and has a pleasant romantic tinge. Amore Mio and Tonight's The Night are the other tracks, completing an EP which is not for the cynical or hard-hearted, but which is aimed at more romantic audiences.

Phillip is originally from Braidwood NSW and is a keen vocalist, pianist, guitarist and singer/songwriter & voice teacher. He has performed in and around Canberra at various restaurants and clubs, corporate events, the Whitsunday Islands and the Gold Coast.

In 1992 Phillip made his main stage debut in Queanbeyan Players production of Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. He then went on to play a number of principal roles in Canberra musical theatre productions, including Will Parker in Oklahoma (1993), The Tin Man in The Wizard of Oz (1994), a soloist in the variety show Broadway and All That Jazz (1994), Rick in A Slice of Saturday Night (1995), Prince Valiant in Sleeping Beauty (1995) and Arthur Kipps in Half a Sixpence (1996).

From 1997 to 2000 Phillip worked as a professional cabaret singer, and toured the major clubs in Victoria and NSW with the variety shows Naughty-cal Time Pirates and Rock-it 1998-2000. Phillip performed and sung tributes to Elton John, Elvis Presley, Blues Brothers, Everly Brothers, and Frank n Furter from the Rocky Horror Picture Show and more recently Johnny O’Keefe in tribute.

In October 1999 Phillip was invited to appear as a guest artist with the RMC Duntroon Band in Music at Midday, sharing the same bill with Toni Lamond. The following year (2000) Phillip was thrilled to be asked to study voice with Gery Scott as part of her Jazz Studies vocal course at the Canberra School of Music, graduating later that year.

In 2001 Phillip made a welcome return to musical theatre as Garry in G-String’s production of A Slice of Saturday Night, and in 2002 was offered the principal role of Nick Piazza in G-String’s Fame the Musical at the Street Theatre.
