Singer Ricky Comeaux Releases New Broadway-Style Single "Theme from Kiss of the Spiderwoman"
The Houston, Tx native releases his third single and accompanying lyric video from his 11 track self-released album "If I Ruled The World" featuring songs from Standards to Broadway.
"Years ago," says Comeaux, "when 'Kiss of the Spider Woman' was first on Broadway, I heard Chita Rivera sing this title song on a talk show and it blew me away. I rushed out and bought the CD. When it came time to make a decision about the music to include on the album this is one I immediately thought of."
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 theme from "Kiss of the Spider Woman," The set includes previous singles "I, Don Quixote," and 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.
