Rinaldi Sings New SingleRinaldi Sings is the name assumed by singer/songwriter Steve Rinaldi, who was famously described by the NME as a "cocksure 20th Century Scott Walker". He plays a stylish brand of pop that acknowledges a deep debt to the bubblegum northern soul of the late Sixties.

The second Rinaldi Sings album is available NOW from this site...

Rinaldi Sings have been booked to play supporting Small World at the Rhythm Factory in Whitechapel, London. The gig, on Thursday May 20, will be the band’s first gig not as a headlining atrraction, but Steve Rinaldi is looking forward to his debut support slot. “I’ve always admired Small World and it will be a pleasure to play on the same stage,” he said. “I recently was able to hear some of their most recent recordings, which sound fantastic. I’m sure it will be a great night.”

Rinaldi Sings played a successful second gig at the Bassment Club in Chelmsford last night. Performing at the regular monthly Bitterscene club night, the band cruised through an entertaining set to a particularly discerning crowd of music lovers. Playing a set fairly similar to their debut gig in December, the running order this time featured ‘Come Again’, another track from the forthcoming album ‘What’s It All About’, while the cover version of ‘White Horse’ was drastically rearranged from their previous rock version. The performance both started and finished with the single, ‘Avenues & Alleyways’. A full review of the gig will follow later.

A great night was made even better by the setting - the venue was perfect and the DJs played an enjoyable selections of ’60s, soul and garage sounds. So well done to Paul, Jackie and Paul of the Bitterscene crew. Invite us back some time - and we hope to see some of your crowd at the Dublin Castle in Camden on March 3!

‘Avenues & Alleyways’ will be the debut single by Rinaldi Sings, released by Tangerine Records on April 5, 2004. A cover version of the Tony Christie classic made famous as the theme tune to ’70s cult TV show The Protectors, ‘Avenues & Alleyways’ will be available as a CD single accompanied by two Steve Rinaldi compositions ‘Lucky Day’ and ‘If She’s Gonna Want You’. The single will be distributed nationwide - if not stocked by your local record shop, they can order it through distributors Shellshock. The catalogue number is TANGCDS 015.

“I’m really excited about the single,” says Steve Rinaldi. “When we started work on the song it was only scheduled to be the extra track on a B-side, but the longer we worked on the song, the scope of it just grew and grew. In the end we must have had about 10 musicians making guest appearances and by the time we had finished the session, it had turned in to one monster of a single.”

Four months after playing their debut gig at The Man On The Moon in Cambridge, Rinaldi Sings are returning to the venue to promote the release of their forthcoming single on Tangerine Records. The gig is scheduled for Wednesday April 14, 2004 - and Rinaldi Sings are interested in hearing from any bands local to the area who might be interested in playing a support set.
