Description:

Steven Geraghty sang with the St. Philip's Boys' Choir for over ten years. Treading carefully in the footsteps of his older brother Daren, Steven joined the choir at only 7 years old, being the youngest Angel Voice at that time. Steven's astounding vocal ability was discovered from the very beginning - to this day he has been the youngest chorister to have appeared on television as part of the choir and also the youngest, at 9, to record a solo for a commercially available album. His early Angel Voices/Libera recordings include the CD Angel Voices 2 from 1996 but his first solos can be heard on the festive CD Angel Voices 3 (1997) and Libera (1999).

As a youngster Steven was a celebrated high-note soloist, with top C's and beyond never being a problem. Because of his gift with the upper registers, Steven was chosen to record his voice for the current signature tune of Songs of Praise. As often is the case for Libera high-note soloists, Steven's position extended and he soon became, joined later by Ben Crawley, Libera's principle soloist. Steven filmed a large collection of songs for television programmes such as Songs of Praise, but his talents as a soloist could not be better observed than on the 2001 CD Luminosa. "Vespera", Luminosa's opening track, is undoubtedly one of Steven's greatest achievements and was the first of Libera's videos to be broadcast on Classic FM TV. His capability is exemplified in his pyrotechnic rendition of Caccini's "Ave Maria", which includes some of his own improvised variations on the original melody. Steven enjoyed being the sidekick of Aled Jones by featuring as vocal support in two songs from Aled's 2002/03 albums.

Steven is a talented aspiring composer and, fired with enthusiasm from recording sessions a few years ago with film writer Hans Zimmer, is hoping to compose movie soundtracks. Steven is also an accomplished clarinettist and displayed his talents for the instrument on Libera's CD Free, on which he also sang as a choir member, some tracks as a treble and some after voice change. Steven is currently a role model in Libera as an older and experienced member helping the younger boys. This was clearly visible on their recent Asia Tour where Steven was a singer, musician, technical assistant for the concerts and chaperone.

Description:

スティーブンは、セント・フィリップ少年聖歌隊で10年以上歌い続けました。彼の兄、ダレンの足跡を注意深く歩み、スティーブンは7歳で聖歌隊に参加し、当時の最年少の「天使の歌声」として活躍しました。 スティーブンの歌唱力は、最初のころから既に評価されていました。今日に至るまで、彼はテレビに出演した最年少の聖歌隊員として名を馳せています。また彼は最年少、9歳という若さでソロアルバムをリリースしています。 スティーブンは、1996年のアルバム、「Angel Voices 2」から参加していますが、彼のソロは1997年のアルバム「Angel Voices 3」と、1999年のアルバム、「リベラ」で聴くことができます。


スティーブンは、トップCとそれより上の音域を歌うことに全く問題がなかったとおり、年少者として高音域のソリストとして賛美されました。 その高音域の才能ゆえに、スティーブンはSongs of Praise という番組曲を歌い手として選ばれました。リベラの高音域ソリストとしてはよくあることですが、スティーブンのポジションは広がりをみせ、リベラの主要ソリストとなりました。(後にベン・クローリーもこれに加わります。)スティーブンは、Songs of Praise などのテレビ番組の曲に多く出演しましたが、彼のソリストとしての才能は2001年にリリースされたアルバム、「ルミノーサ」で最も評価されました。ルミノーサの最初の一曲である「Vespera」はスティーブンの素晴らしい偉業の一つであることは疑いの余地がなく、また、この曲はクラシックFMテレビでリベラのPVとして初めて放映されものでした。 His capability is exemplified in his pyrotechnic rendition of Caccini's "Ave Maria", which includes some of his own improvised variations on the original melody. Steven enjoyed being the sidekick of Aled Jones by featuring as vocal support in two songs from Aled's 2002/03 albums.
