Shaun Escoffery and Andreya Triana – Here Comes The Rain Again
Shaun Escoffery is a British soul and R&B singer and actor who was born in London. His first major release was the single Space Rider released by Oyster Music in March 2001. It was played regularly by the BBC Radio 1 DJ Trevor Nelson and The Dreem Teem. It peaked at 52 in the UK Singles Chart and was followed by the UK 53 hit Days Like This in 2002. After releasing several other singles on the same label Escoffery became more noticed for his voice – being noticed by Lennox Lewis who invited him to Memphis Tennessee to sing the national anthem before his boxing match with Mike Tyson. In 2007 Escoffery released an album entitled Move into Soul which included cover versions of A Change Is Gonna Come and I Heard It Through the Grapevine. Also that year he received a Laurence Olivier Award nomination for his work in the stage musical Parade and the following year played Mufasa in a London production of The Lion King. Escofferys other West End credits include Les Misérables Smokey Joe’s Café Tommy and Mama I Want to Sing. In 2014 Escoffery returned to the recording studio to release a new album In the Red Room for Dome Records. The album is co-written and produced by Gil Cang whose credits include writing Whatever Happens for Michael Jackson. The first single from the album Natures Call was released in August 2014 and entered the UK Airplay Top 30. Three further singles People Nobody Knows and Perfect Love Affair also entered the UK Airplay chart. In September 2015 Escoffery appeared at BBC Radio 2’s Live In Hyde Park festival alongside Rod Stewart and Bryan Adams. His album “Evergreen – again co-written and produced by Gil Cang – was released in September 2016 on DomiVKA. The first two singles When The Love is Gone” and “Love Shine Down” both entered the UK Airplay chart.
