Thanks to Alison Frend for supplying the link to the below article which as you will see confirms Rachel's debut album should be available before the end of the year.
Rachel Tucker has confirmed that she has signed to Big Hand Recordings in a joint venture with Elate Studio and will release her debut album in 2013.
After two-and-a-half years and over 1,000 performances, Rachel recently finished starring as Elphaba in the West End production of Wicked (Apollo Victoria Theatre). She played this iconic role longer than any other actress in the production’s history.
Following her appearance on the BBC’s I’d Do Anything where she reached the semi-final stages for the role of Nancy, Rachel was offered the part of Meat in Queen’s We Will Rock You (Dominion Theatre), marking her West End debut. In the same year, she was chosen to co-present The Friday Show opposite Eamonn Holmes (BBC/Green Inc), sing with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra at Hampton Court Palace, and judge on Northern Irish comedy series Find Me The Funny (BBC NI).
Rachel said: “People have asked me for years if I would ever record an album – well I’m absolutely thrilled to finally be able to say YES ! I can’t wait to get into the studio and start recording! ”
Big Hand Recordings said of the signing: “Rachel Tucker is an artist we’ve wanted to work with for a few years now, Rachel has one of the best voices we’ve heard and to get the chance to work with her on her debut album is fantastic. We’re excited to get started.”
