Blue(s) Laurie

It’s almost impossible to understate how big Hugh Laurie is in the US. The former star of Jeeves & Wooster and best buddy of Stephen Fry has for the last half a decade been wowing US TV audiences as Sherlock Holmes-inspired crime fighter House and now he is about to cash in on his success and release his very own blues album.

Although known primarily as a comic actor Laurie has often shown-off his musical abilities playing piano where he can (see A Bit Of Fry & Laurie for more). And is now relishing his chance to release a proper studio album. Talking about his new project he said; ‘I am drunk with excitement at this opportunity. I know the history of actors making music is a chequered one, but I promise no one will get hurt. I am particularly thrilled to be working with Joe Henry, who has produced some of my favourite records of all time, and I can't wait to get started.’

No title or release date has been given for the New Orleans blues influenced album.
