Spotlight: Robbie Williams

Yes I’ve lived in the UK all my life.  Yes I’ve grown up with Take That and Robbie Williams on the radio.  Yes, Robbie Williams’s famous hits Angels, Rock DJ etc. etc. have been blasted at me from all directions.  No, I haven’t actually listened to a Robbie Williams album all the way through.  Yes, […]

Spotlight: Bruce Springsteen

Over the past few weeks I’ve finally accomplished what I’ve been meaning to do for quite awhile: listen to Bruce Springsteen. Apart from the songs everyone knows, I’ve never really listened to his music and blogs are constantly telling me I am definitely missing out!  I am not Springsteen qualified enough to give each album […]

Spotlight: Adele

This evening I should have been at a concert.  Adele.  Wembley Stadium. She cancelled for all the right reasons but I am still majorly disappointed as I’ve never seen her live before, there are rumours that she may never tour again after this and despite being a Londoner I’ve never had the occasion to go […]

Rascal Flatts – Back To Us (2017)

Rascal Flatts are one of those bands that I listen to every time they release a new record but hardly any of them stick in my mind.  There are song I like, maybe even really like, but none that I obsess over and play repeatedly. At the risk of sounding like a music snob, I […]

Toploader – Seeing Stars (2017)

I have a lot of time for Toploader. I am quite disappointed that whenever you mention their name, everyone goes “oh the band that did Dancing In The Moonlight.  Well, actually the band that Dancing In The Moonlight belongs to is King Crimson and Toploader did a very good, very successful cover of that song.  […]

Mike & The Mechanics – Let Me Fly (2017)

This album is a very rare thing – an album from a group that has been around since the ’80s that is quite possibly their best work yet!  Yes, you heard it here first – this album not only introduced me properly to Mike & the Mechanics and made me go and discover their earlier […]

One Love Manchester

A month ago I didn’t know anything about Ariana Grande.  Her name was vaguely familiar but I didn’t know about whence she came or her style of music (although I guessed it wasn’t up my street). Then 22 May happened and suddenly she was front and centre, thrust into the news for all the wrong […]

Spotlight: Lady Antebellum

Lady Antebellum are probably my favourite country band. They came onto my radar when I was first “discovering” country music and they only had one album out and I stumbled on I Run To You and then came the obsession with the Need You Now album.  They sort of faded away for me for awhile […]
