Damien Leith @ ROY ORBISON ORCHESTRATED

ROY ORBISON ORCHESTRATED, Sandy Bay

Damien Leith takes to the stage with his famous ‘Roy Orbison Orchestrated’ show, paying tribute to the late, great Roy Orbison.

Joining the award-winning performer will be 35 world-class musicians, making this an unforgettable night.

Damien’s career has been inextricably linked to Roy Orbison, since his performance of his hit Crying on the 2006 series of Australian Idol. Capturing the attention of Orbison’s late wife Barbara, it was her wish for Damien to carry on her husband’s legacy with his powerful renditions of the Big O's songs. He went on to record the album Roy which was produced by Barbara and recorded in Nashville with many musicians Roy worked with. One in particular that Damien has continued to work with to this day and become close friends, is legendary songwriter, Joe Melson, who co-wrote Crying, Blue Bayou, Only the Lonely and many more.

Very few voices excite me, but I fell in love with Damien’s voice when I heard it. It inspired me to write again, much in the same way Roy Orbison’s voice inspired me to write...Damien’s portrayal of these great songs will allow fans to relive the memory of Roy Orbison for years to come. I love Damien’s voice, and the orchestration of my and Roy’s songs is beautiful. Thank you, Damien. You nailed it!
