Stars of Bat Out of Hell the musical Rob Fowler and Sharon Sexton are currently in the process of recording their debut duets album, Vision of You. The album is not only a celebration and showcase of their glorious vocals but tells the back story of Sloane and Falco, the characters they play in the show.

I went along to the recording studio for a sneak peek at the process and to chat to the pair about the album and how the journey has been so far.

Alongside Fowler and Sexton is pianist extraordinaire Steve Corley who provides the beautiful accompaniments for the pieces and brings a warmth and real feel to the music. Sharon describes the album as “a box of chocolates” which has something for everyone and the pair hopes it will be a treat for both fans and non-fans of Bat Out of Hell.

Vision of You features music from a number of artists, including The Civil Wars, Lady Gaga, Jim Steinman and Glenn Hansard, all artists whom Sexton and Fowler have been inspired by.

From what I’ve seen so far of Vision of You, I know that it’s going to be an incredibly raw, heartfelt and moving piece of work.
