No stranger to radio and television, Lionel has had performances and interviews broadcast throughout the world.  In 1987 Lionel recorded an album, “Lionel Reekie Sings”, under the ODE record label and in December 1996 he released a CD entitled “Starlight” using MIDI accordion with vocals.  Lionel has also featured on many other recordings.

On his most recent CD “From Russia With Love”, which was recorded in Novosibirsk, Russia with the Siberian Festival Orchestra, Lionel sings well-known songs from popular musicals and movies, such as “Phantom of the Opera”, “Les Miserables”, “My Fair Lady” and James Bond “From Russia With Love”.

While all the recording was completed with the orchestra, conducted by Rustam Dilmukhametov, in Russia, the album was mixed and mastered at Auckland's Stebbing Recording Studios.

After working with some of the top professional musicians in Russia's third largest city, Lionel was invited to travel back to Novosibirsk in January 2013 to appear as the featured artist in concert with the Russian Academic Orchestra, at the Novosibirsk State Philharmonia, also under the baton of Rustam Dilmukhametov.
