Hey - is anyone here familiar with this cat? I've been invited to go see his gig here in San Francisco on Friday night, and was wondering if anyone here was a fan......the venue website describes him as kind of a "white, British Otis Redding"!

Cheers!
Dina

Go go go go do not miss the chance. He's very good. There was a discussion on him a couple of years back when I went to see him at the Spitz here in London but that may have been archived.

Very soulful.

Saw him in Sheffield a couple of years ago. I think he has just released/is releasing a new album. Very well worth seeing live - go!! :D

I used to see him a few years ago play a Sunday afternoon gig once a month in a Pub in Camden - saw him last year in Manchester. He's excellent.

I would love to see him live but he only has one uk date in the near future. London MOJO Club 21st july in between me seeing Leonard Cohen and K D Lang. I will keep an eye on him because he probably gigs quite a lot? I have loads of mates who would really go for it.

SFGlam I bet you have a great night, let us know.

It's a good job I saw your signature ("I can resist anything but temptation...") because I had just put that very one on mine, I had to put a different O.W. quote on quickly.':wink:'

I think my new one is just as good!

Met him when he played The Boardwalk and he came across as a bit of a tool. Great singer though.
