Hmmm....very experimental, approach wise? love the disjointed feel to it and I can't help but think of Elvis Costello every time I hear your voice. Don't know if that's a compliment or not? but after hearing several of your songs now.....I recognize a certain style developing and perhaps a few influences in there as well...Who do you listen to the most these days?
Thanks Jifster. The Costello things is a *definite* compliment.At the moment, I'm listening mainly to me (work, obviously - you don't think it gives me *any* pleasure at all do you?), Syd Barrett, Girl Groups. I like Camera Obscura of the newer stuff, but I'm doing a lot of mix checking etc., so not too much room for general listening at the moment. Will have a binge soon, I hope, when I've recorded my 'masterpiece'...xxxx'Bertap.s. There was a Duke Ellington in the cast too, I recall - Take the A' Train. From Live at Newport, 1956 - a classic. Check out Paul Gonsalves' 25 bar solo on Diminuendo in blue/Crescendo in Blue. Stunning.
Your voice has definite influences from Ferry and Bowie.
