Wow, just finally listened to his two albums. I sampled them on 7Digital and was actually amazed by how good they were.
My favourites are the following:
Change Is Gonna Come
Dance With Me
Don't Say Goodbye
I'm Blame Hollywood
I've Tried Everything
He has a nice sound. It's a mix of Robbie Williams, Take That and James Blunt. There;s big pop finishes but touches of dingy acoustic guitar in there to swing along to. Dance With Me is reminiscent of jazzy jive songs from the 30s, 40s and 50s. His vocals in I've Tried Everything have a slight hint of Kelly Jones (Stereophonics) about them. And the piano in Change Is Gonna Come sounds like it came from The Who's Sally Simpson (Tommy the Musical). I'm really impressed. Look forward to hearing his next album.
