Up Close and Personal with Martine McCutcheon Live at The Regal
- 165 minutes
Hear the story of Eastenders and Love Actually star, Martine McCutcheon, ask her questions in a LIVE Q&A and listen to songs from her new album, Lost & Found, as well as hits and highlights from her glittering career including her number 1 hit single, Perfect Moment!
Martine McCutcheon first found fame as Tiffany Mitchell in Eastenders in the 1990s, before releasing her platinum-selling debut solo album ‘You, Me & Us’ in 1999 containing the No. 1 single ‘Perfect Moment’. In 2003, Martine memorably played Natalie opposite Hugh Grant in ‘Love Actually.’
Now 41, happily married and the mother of a 2-year-old, the time felt right to return to the studio. Martine has co-written most of the songs on the new album ‘Lost and Found’ with her husband, the multi-instrumentalist/vocalist Jack McManus, and she has never sounded better!
Martine is back not only musically; she also reprised her role in the Comic Relief reunion of ‘Love Actually’ earlier this year and has just wrapped a film with Alan Davies called ‘The Bromley Boys.’
However, it’s music that’s her main focus. First single ‘Say I’m Not Alone’, is a song like nothing Martine has ever recorded before; big, bold, brash, merging clanging guitars, thumping drums and a hard hitting lyric. Other album highlights include the rocky ‘Any Sign Of Life’, the beautiful ‘Stay With Me’ (which is a duet with Jack) and album closer ‘Rebellion’.
The album is a deeply personal record that deals with everything from relationships to Martine's debilitating illness that saw her unable to work. “Life brought this album about very gradually,” explains Martine. “It was a really unconscious thing; I started writing the songs at a time in my life when I’d lost everything.”
First half comprises of songs (new album and all Martine’s previous hits), plus her story.
Second half Q&A session, ending with a few songs.
