The Tunbridge Wells-based singer, songwriter last performed a solo sold-out show at the Assembly Hall

A singer and performer from Tunbridge Wells is back after his solo show Live and Backstage last year.

Oliver Tourle, 26, who works at the Assembly Hall Theatre, is launching a debut solo EP Sing covering a range of pop songs from past and present.

He started his career at the theatre at 15-years-old, and now he says he’s more eager than ever to create the stepping-stones and the opportunities for himself, as well as giving other local talent a platform to perform in.

He said: “I love performing and I always have. But perhaps I’ve shied away from it before because sometimes the opportunities to showcase myself as a person weren’t there. I want to prove to people that you should never give up on a dream, always trust yourself and show everything that you have to offer.”

His show Live and Backstage at the Assembly Hall last November, gave a glimpse of how the theatre really works, backstage and on-stage, as audience members watched his performance from the stage itself allowing them to appreciate the vantage point, which most audience members will never get to experience.

“I am very lucky that the theatre gave me such a great opportunity,” he added. “I wanted it to be a chance where people could experience the atmosphere of a live show, feel that same buzz, and see the different elements an audience wouldn’t typically get to see.

“This year, I wanted to do something just as unique and as special. I just hope people will come out to support the evening in the same way they did last time.”

Oliver’s EP launch night in July will see him perform tracks including classic songs, past and present with live musicans. There will also be performances from other local performers such as One Man Plan, Betsy-Lee Miller, and Brooke Wells.

The singer appears at Salomons Estate, on Sunday July 23 at 7pm.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
