Enjoy Celebrity Radio’s Martin & Shirley Kemp Interview…
For the first time in their careers, Martin and Shirlie Kemp join forces for their brand new album In The Swing Of It.
In The Swing Of It brings the couple together for the first time having both individually enjoyed huge chart success in iconic 80’s bands Spandau Ballet and Pepsi and Shirlie.
Tracks include Nice Work If You Can Get It – a playful nod to Martin’s NTA Award winning acting roles on EastEnders and in Hollywood, and classics Ain’t That a Kick In The Head, Fly Me To The Moon and The Way You Look Tonight.
We were thrilled to speak to these showbiz legends…
Enjoy an exclusive interview with Martin and Shirlie via YouTube:
Daughter Harleymoon, who has been working as a songwriter in Nashville for the past two years, also contributed to the album with two tracks she wrote for her parents, Like We Used To Do and When We’re Apart.
The idea for the album was born off the back of an impromptu recording session with Martin, whilst working with producer Brian Rawling (Cher, Tina Turner, One Direction. He invited Shirlie into the studio for the first time in over 30 years to help with a song. The session was the start of something magical, and made them realise how much they enjoyed recording together going onto work on a carefully selected track listing of uplifting Swing covers, chosen by the couple to reflect on their relationship.
