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: 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 […]

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 […]

Ed Sheeran – ÷ (2017)

I was not, like everyone else in England seems to be, an Ed Sheeran fan right from the start. I was put-off from trying him out because I couldn’t understand why a singer-songwriter and ace guitar player would want to insert rap into his songs.  Also, I’m not keen on the constant references to smoking, […]

Ed Sheeran – Galway Girl (9/52)

I was not, like everyone else in England seems to be, an Ed Sheeran fan right from the start. I was put-off from trying him out because I couldn’t understand why a singer-songwriter and ace guitar player would want to insert rap into his songs.  Also, I’m not keen on the constant references to smoking, […]

Keith Urban – Fighter (feat. Carrie Underwood) (18/52)

I am a latecomer to Keith Urban’s music, with him only really coming coming into my music orbit with his album Fuse.  Ripcord is another hitmaker though and one of my favourite songs from it is Fighter with Carrie Underwood despite it being completely uncountry and totally pop.  It is just so happy and positive […]

Soundtrack to my 2015

{35 Albums} 2015 is the year in music which saw me seeing the classic lineup of Fleetwood Mac perform an awesome concert together, Adele  came back onto the music scene with the Lionel Richie-esque Hello, Rob Thomas released an album with insanely catchy songs, Tyrone Wells and Jack Savoretti proved why they’re my favourite underrated […]

Peter Hollens – Song Of Durin (12/52)

An album full of covers of songs featured in Lord Of The Rings and The Hobbit films?  Best idea ever. Peter Hollens’s acapella voice is pure magic and I think out of all the wonderful tracks on the album, nothing shows it up as well as Song Of Durin.  It really makes you feel like […]
