LISTEN NOW... to a selection of tracks from the album

"The characters are drawn nicely, the harmonies are soulful and the band meets the mark … its resounding message against bullying sings something totally relevant … emotionally engaging musical theatre."

The Stage

"a feel-good show … undeniably catchy."


"a bright, catchy score … “Stand Tall shows promise as a new musical with its innovative score and likable and diverse characters."

Fringe Review **** Stars

"this is a rock musical and there are great moments when it really does rock!"


"the music is strong, gutsy and delivered with a hefty punch … suitably rousing … heart-warming stuff."

Extra Extra

"Stand Tall is a musical that succeeds in looking at the relevant problem of bullying from every aspect …‘Don’t Cry’ and ‘Goliath’s Song’ provide a powerful insight into the mind of the bully; instead of simply painting him as the bad guy, the songs show that it may be the bully’s pain, fear and inability to escape his own situation that motivates him."

Public Reviews

"If you like something different and you like rock/pop musicals then this may be just the thing for you."
