Hear’Say’s Myleene Klass, 23, is going back to her classical roots after signing a week back a GBP1m-plus record contract, given to her by the bosses at Universal Classics. This contract will see her having in total of six albums.
The pop vocalistress who plays the piano, violin and harp, has inked a deal which her new bosses hope will help bridge the gap between the worlds of pop and the classics.
Norfolk-born Myleene was classically educated and trained at the Royal Academy of Music.
She said “I started playing the violin and piano when I was four, then I took up the harp when I was about 11 or 12. Before I could even read I was expressing myself through music.”
Universal Classics is home to some of the greatest classical artists including Pavarotti, Bocelli and Leonard Bernstein.
Bill Holland, managing director of Universal Classics and Jazz, said “Myleene is one of the greatest talents I’ve ever heard. Her mission is to eradicate the barriers between pop and classical music with a little help from us.”
