Broadway Style Singer Ricky Comeaux Is Tilting Windmills With New Single "I, Don Quixote"
The Houston, Tx native releases his second single and accompanying lyric video from his 11 track self-released album "If I Ruled The World" featuring songs from Standards to Broadway.
"'I, Don Quixote' – Basically the title song from the 1965 musical "Man of La Mancha," it was the song I usually opened with after Jerry and I resurrected our act in 2005. It was a big showpiece live and I love the power it conveys here."
If I Ruled the World features dynamic, alternately subtle, soulful and explosive interpretations of 11 classic rock, pop, Broadway and film songs with music tracks produced in Los Angeles by veteran film and television composer and Founder of Musicomm Mark Holden, and vocals produced at Houston's Wire Road studios by Barry Coffing (Randy Travis, Michael McDonald, Cyndi Lauper), If I Ruled The World has a universal appeal that taps into that sweet spot in the pop marketplace where greats like Josh Groban, Andrea Bocelli, Sarah Brightman and Il Divo currently reign.
Along with the single "I, Don Quixote," The set includes "Theme from Kiss of the Spider Woman," Andrew Lloyd-Webber's "Tell Me On A Sunday," Roy Orbison's "It's Over," "I've Gotta Be Me" from "Golden Rainbow," Sondheim's "Not While I'm Around," "Carolina in the Morning," "If I Ruled The World," David Gates' "If," Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah"

About Ricky Comeaux:
Back in the roaring 80's and 90s, when Ricky Comeaux was cementing his legend in Houston's musical and social circles doing thousands of gigs as the powerhouse vocal half of beloved duo Atwood and Comeaux, his vocal teacher gave him some sage advice. "Sing to the light, to the world and universe," Bettye Gardner told him. "Put your passion out there with no preconceptions except for the beauty of what you're doing."
Two decades after his initial split with multi-instrumentalist and longtime creative partner Jerry Atwood, having survived detour after emotional and physical detour which took him far from the magical world he's always loved the most, the dramatic tenor is taking Bettye's words to heart.
