SHOWBIZ: Meet Josh Piterman


Musical theatre and Cclassical crossover star Josh Piterman has released the first single Caruso from his new EP Loving You.
Recorded between London and Melbourne, the four-track EP is a musical collaboration with UK friend, producer and songwriter, Steve Anderson, who he began working with throughout the first lockdown of 2020.
Anderson has had a highly successful career and a rich history of working with some of the world’s most applauded pop artists and bands including Kylie Minogue, Michael Jackson, Sting, David Bowie, Take That, Westlife, Steps, Delta Goodrem and Paul McCartney.
Piterman says: “Steve is an outstanding producer and writer and has given so much to the world of music over many years. Naturally I was incredibly excited to work with him. Steve also has such a love and understanding for the world of film composition, and we drew a lot of inspiration from the likes of Hans Zimmer and James Horner when creating this EP.”
Anderson says: “Josh and I instantly clicked, as our vision for what sonic world his incredible voice could inhabit was totally in sync. Combining an epic widescreen modern soundtrack with a truly classic and iconic vocal. I have a long standing affection for Australia and refer to it lovingly as my second home so it was almost inevitable that this creative partnership would work out so beautifully.”
Loving You features four covers expertly reinterpreted by Josh and his unique vocal style. Operatic classic Caruso originally written and performed by Italian singer songwriter Lucio Dalla. Contemporary classic, Fix You by Coldplay. Cinema Paradiso by legendary film composer Ennio Morricone, written as the love theme for the film of the same name. I Want To Spend My Lifetime Loving You, a duet with West End star Aimee Atkinson, originally recorded by Tina Arena and Marc Anthony for the film The Mask Of Zorro.
In August, Josh will reprise his West End debut as The Phantom in The Phantom of the Opera for the very first time at Sydney Opera House and then Arts Centre Melbourne from October.
