Classical star, Fabio D’Andrea, who’s used to performing in front of A-list superstars, heads of state, and royalty, was writing for an orchestra when one of his songs morphed into ‘You Alone’.
At the same time, his arrangements of Gershwin songs caught the attention of a number of singers, including Grammy award winner, Gregory Porter, who joined Fabio onstage along singers Laura Mvula, Eska, and Rebecca Ferguson, to perform the arrangements with the BBC Orchestera – broadcast live on BBC Radio 2.
Add to the mix legendary producer Hal Ritson, favourite of Annie Mac. Ritson liked what he heard, and after listening to a number of Fabio’s works, decided to transform ‘You Alone’ into a deep bliss house track, echoing the London vibe used in his recent work with Duke Dumont.
Meanwhile, Fabio had seen the musical, ‘Matilda’, and was impressed by one of the stars of the show, Juliet Gough – so much so that he asked her to consider singing for one of his projects. With Hal’s genius behind the track, Fabio knew that Juliet’s vocals would sit perfectly on top.
‘You Alone’ was born.
For the video, Juliet enlisted some of her dancing friends, including Allan “Boogie” Kabeja and Leory “FX” Dos Santos of the famous dancer crew Flawless, who received national exposure on ITV’s ‘Britain’s Got Talent’.
