Hugh Laurie Playing the PianoHugh Laurie, who became known worldwide as the indispensable Dr. House in the series on Fox, will premiere on the music industry in May.

The announcement was made ​​by Warner Music in a statement distributed to the press which states that the British actor’s relationship with music dates back many years.  Hugh Laurie, who plays piano and guitar, introduced his debut album versions of 15 great classic blues musicians like Ray Charles , Robert Johnson , Memphis Slim , Lead Belly , Professor Longhair and Jelly Roll Morton and others.

Laurie has a strong British accent in person, but when he films the show, ‘House’, he has a stunningly believable American accent.  Many fans wouldn’t know that he is actually British.  The show indicates a few hints of his passion for music with story lines that involve guitars and show other musical instruments as props throughout the show.  House has played the piano for a few episodes and a recent episode involved a musical bit where he sang “Come on Get Happy”.
