About Simply Bowie
THE SELL OUT HIT SHOW RETURNS FOR EDINBURGH 2019!
Bowie as you’ve never heard him before…
Simply Bowie is the result of the collaboration between singer Oliver Darley and pianist Chad Lelong. The duo have worked together to strip back some of Bowie`s most recognisable hits and present a new and unique interpretation of great British songwriting.
As well as a string of newly arranged hits, the show also includes fascinating commentary of the often extraordinary stories that lay behind the original recordings.
Simply Bowie is not only a treat for Bowie fans, enabling them to find new meaning in freshly discovered lyrics and more prominent melodies, but also a wonderful and intriguing introduction for those who are new to his music.
Bowie famously said he never wanted his life to be boring and this show illuminates just how bizarre and crazy it often was.
Simply Bowie brings to life the music of this ground-breaking artist, setting it in context to add depth and greater understanding of his work. A unique and enlightening experience, the show will electrify and create fans for years to come.
Former NME Male Vocalist of the Year Oliver Darley brings his own inimitable style to the music of this iconic artist. Oliver has been signed to two major record labels, released four albums to date and sung with some of the world’s bestselling artists including Ray Charles, B.B. King, Tom Jones, and Joan Armatrading.
After a sellout run at the Edinburgh Festival 2017, Simply Bowie toured the UK and then Norway and is returning to the Edinburgh Festival in 2019.
