MARTI PELLOW (The Arbiter)
Marti Pellow is the lead singer of the enormously successful ‘Wet, Wet, Wet’. The band was found in 1983 and soon became one of the most successful groups of the 80’s and 90’s, and still continues to have top 10 records today.
Marti and the group have sold over 15 million albums and garnered 26 UK top singles, 10 of which went Top 10, and 3 to number one, including the biggest selling single in UK history, ‘Love Is All Around’ which featured in the film ‘Four Weddings And A Funeral,’ and stayed at number 1 in the UK charts for an incredible 16 weeks, and the US charts for 11 weeks. They have also enjoyed incredible live success playing to over a million people worldwide.
As a solo artiste, Marti has completed a number of sell out tours playing all over the world. His first solo album went straight into the Top 10 and since then all of his albums have achieved platinum status.
His most recent album to be released later this year, ‘In A Sentimental Mood’ inspired by playing at the famous Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club, will be followed by a national tour in April 2008.
Marti has played Billy Flynn in the hit musical ‘Chicago’ both in the West End and on Broadway, and later this year will play the lead role of Daryl Van Horne in ‘The Witches Of Eastwick.’ What a devil he is!
Marti has a chance to complete another goal in his life – to work with Sir Tim Rice. He is delighted to be part of Chess in Concert, a musical he has always been passionate about.
