In a recording and acting career that has spanned 30 years, “All By Myself” is Bernie Nolan’s dynamic debut solo album and is released to coincide with a major storyline for her character in the ITV police series ‘The Bill’, where she plays Sergeant Sheelagh Murphy. Bernie was the lead-singer of the multi-million selling, award-winning international singing phenomenon, The Nolans, from 1974 until the end of 1996, when she decided to pursue a solo career. The Nolans record successes have given them an amazing number of hit singles and albums culminating in over twenty gold, silver and platinum discs. Their greatest triumphs were in Japan, beginning with the Tokyo Musical Festival where they were the first ever European Act to win the much-coveted grand prize, and where competition included the likes of Randy Crawford and Jermaine Jackson. From there they went on to sell an incredible 9.3 Million records. The highlight of Bernie's career so far, has to be when she and her sisters were asked in 1975 to do a European tour supporting their hero, Frank Sinatra. In fact, The Nolans new 3CD hits collection has taken the Japanese instore album charts by storm. A Channel 4 documentary broadcast in 2000 argues that the Nolans were the blueprint for all the subsequent white girl groups that followed, including The Spice Girls, by which time Bernie had moved into mainstream-TV acting projects. She was offered a major role in "Brookside" as Diane Murray and enjoyed two happy, award winning years there. Her growing reputation as a talented actress led to her accepting a role 'The Bill', a role that she has excelled in since February 2003.
The album shows-off Bernie’s voice at it’s very best on these ‘power ballads’. The album has been produced by Paul Muggleton (rumoured to be producing some new Alex Parks tracks) to give the songs that emotional edge in the final mix. Whilst pursuing this talent and passion for acting, Bernie's first love, music, has not been forgotten and this is why this is the right time for her debut solo album.
