James Harrington

Rob began his Musical career playing the title role in Lionel Bart’s musical Oliver when he was just 12, and has been heavily involved in musical theatre both as a writer and performer ever since.

He has performed all over the South Coast in musicals, operas and concerts, playing parts as diverse as Marcello: La Boheme, The American: Chess, Curly: Oklahoma, Frederic: The Pirates of Penzance and in as predigeous venues as London’s Royal Albert Hall, The Savoy Theatre, The Royal Festival Hall, touring with Hinge & Bracket and The Best of Broadway. He is a member of the close-harmony cabaret group First Night, who work extensively around Rob’s home county of Sussex. He was privileged to perform with First Night at a celebration dinner honouring the late Sir Harry Secombe and a memorial concert for the arts critic Jack Tinker.

Rob owns and runs a recording studio that he uses to produce and arrange work for his own projects as well as local (and sometimes, not so local) artists.

He has been writing music for 15 years, producing his own album Resolution and co-writing and producing three others. The Promised Land written with two other writers was his first Stage Musical success and recently the trio’s work of the brand new musical Remember! Remember! has been showcased in the Bridewell Theatre in London’s West End. Rob won the Brighton Cares 2000 song contest, having his song Forever performed in front of 5000 people and sung by a cast of over 200.
