International Blue

International Blue-feat. Midge Ure, Glenn Gregory, Liam McKahey & Neil Crossley produced by Tony Visconti.


of goal

Once upon a time, there existed a breed of singers who didn’t need AutoTune: they could bend, shape and twist their voices any way they wanted to.
Dutch Composer Stephen Emmer a passionate aficionado of this great genre has brought together a collective of supreme voices, creating an album of days gone by Bond-esque proportions, using high tech modern production values at Abbey Road Studios with the legend that is Tony Visconti, a perfect partnership.

‘International Blue’ pays tribute to the lost art and elegance of pop-crooning and features Midge Ure (Ultravox), Glenn Gregory (Heaven 17), Liam McKahey (Cousteau), Neil Crossley (Furlined) Michael Dempsey (The Cure) & production by Tony Visconti at the world famous Abbey Road Studios.

Message from Stephen Emmer
By Pledging or pre-ordering here on this page you can help me make this album available on CD and on Vinyl. Also by using PledgeMusic we can offer signed items, and memorabilia from the recording process and some very special Pledger’s only events.
It’s simple, your Pledge or pre-order will go towards reaching the target of 100% shown at the top of the page. Once that target is hit, we will have enough orders to manufacture all the pledges and ship them to you.
I hope you enjoy the music as much as we enjoyed making it.
