Lee Mead

At the BBC’s London regional website Mark Shenton said of Mead ‘with a resonant voice that's reminiscent of a young Michael Ball, he's pitch-perfect, too.' For the BBC Breakfast show's reviewer Mead was "a star". ‘Mead is in excellent form vocally,’ wrote The Stage's Lisa Martland.. For the Daily Express’s Paul Callan, Mead's ‘voice is clear, firm and convincing...”

Lee Mead was born in Southend-on-Sea, son of a cab driver. After leaving college Lee worked on ferries singing to passengers on the Bay of Biscay, but things were soon to take a dramatic turn….
While performing in The Phantom of the Opera, Mead auditioned for the BBC series Any Dream Will Do to play Joseph. Mead was selected as one of the top 20 finalists, and eventually won the role nine weeks later.
Booking for Joseph was so fast that on 3 July 2007 — when the first three months were sold out — the producers extended the show's run and Mead's contract until 7 June 2008.

On 12 June 2007, Mead released "Any Dream Will Do" and "Close Every Door" by download. Five days later, the songs entered the UK Singles Download Chart at No. 18. Six days after that, the songs peaked at No. 2. The proceeds from the songs went to the BBC's annual Children in Need charity appeal.
In 2009 Mead was again asked to support BBC’s Children In Need and joined a host of established singers at Abbey Road Studios to record “All You Need Is Love” album.
In 2008 Mead performed “All I Ask Of You” with Hayley Westenra in Hyde Park to celebrate Andrew Lloyd Webbers 60th Birthday celebrations.
Following his successful run as Joseph in the West End, Mead took on a new challenge. From January 12th 2010 at the Theatre Royal Windsor he starred in a touring revival of Lord Arthur Savile's Crime, adapted by Trevor Baxter as a Victorian comic melodrama, from the short story by Oscar Wilde. Mead led the cast playing the title role.
Lee returned to the West End in May 2010 to take on the role of Fiyero in the musical Wicked but he is also pursuing a solo singing career. On his days off from the musical, Lee has been taking his own show ‘An Evening with Lee Mead’ around various venues in UK.
