Jesse Ware has a naturally fantastic voice and her deeply honest, insightful, soul-searching single ‘Sam’ is simply brilliant.
Covering the Beatles is always a gamble. As is a new DC film (boom boom). I’m saying that Gary Clark Jr pulls it off in serious style. Though, given how angry he looks in the video, I’d say that even if it weren’t true.
Is Word Gets Around the best Stereophonics album ever? I think it might just be. Though I wouldn’t like to choose between it and Performance and Cocktails. So the answer is yes, but also no.
No Good from Kaleo is an all-out brilliant rock song. It’s got the riff, the heavy beat, some sweet solos and vocals to shred your vocal chords for.
Robert Plant and Alison Krauss, blended expertly by T-Bone Burnett to create a once in a lifetime recording. It’s moody, haunting and just down-right brilliant.
If you don’t believe in love, romance and passion, this song might just change your mind. The lyrics are beautiful, Hawley’s guitar has the most fantastic amount of reverb, and the chord progressions soar upwardly like a stairway to the stars.
It’s no surprise that Aretha Franklin can sing but this performance for Carole King is like nothing you’ve ever seen. It will warm your very soul.
A labour of love, A Song For Every Moon is a spellbinding, emotional journey. Lyrically sharp, vocally superb and musically unique.
