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...

The debut Rinaldi Sings single ‘Avenues & Alleyways’ was featured by radio DJ Gary Crowley as one of his three singles of the week on his BBC Radio London website. Having been played several times on his show, the band found themselves listed alongside The Beta Band and The Dead 60s as one of Crowley’s three “Choice Cuts - this week’s top tuneage on the turntables at Crowley Towers”.

A fantastic plug for the single, Gary Crowley says: “These guys, led by singer/songwriter Steve Rinaldi, take their inspiration from classic pop and Northern Soul. It’s an ambitious sound they go for, not a million miles away from the seam that My Life Story were mining a few years back. ‘Avenues And Alleyways’ is a cover of an old Tony Christie song that was the theme tune to the 70s cult tv show The Protectors. Nice.”

The BBC Radio London website also includes a live review of the band’s recent gig at The Garage. Read the BBC London live review.

In its first week of release, it appears that the debut Rinaldi Sings single is picking up radio airplay around the country. Gary Crowley has been championing the CD on his BBC London radio show, while Spencer Leigh has given the CD a spin on Radio Merseyside.

Slowly but surely the band are picking up fans - and journalist Paolo Hewitt was among the crowd at last Monday’s show at The Garage in Islington.

‘Avenues & Alleyways’ is finally released on Monday May 10 - and the band will be celebrating with a launch party at Upstairs At The Garage. Doors open at 8pm. Support band Kelly’s Heels will be on at 8.45pm and Rinaldi Sings are onstage at 10pm. Djs Gary Malby and Rodders will be spinning a selection of beat and soul classics for the remainder of the evening.

It looks highly likely that Rinaldi Sings will be a last minute addition to the bill of the Camber Sands scooter rally, as main support act to The Selecter. The band had been booked to play at the November event at Hembsy, but a change of plans by the promoters has led to a slot opening up at the summer event on Friday July 2. As soon as the contract is signed, we will bring you the news here.

The band are looking forward to the gig. “Playing in front of a couple of thousand people will be fun,” says Steve, “but so will playing as a support act. Although we’ve been gigging for six months now, we have never supported anyone yet, so this will be a new experience for us!”


The release date of the first Rinaldi Sings single has been delayed by one further week to allow the distributors to get it into the shops okay. It will now be released on May 10, but you can order it now from all good record shops - just tell them the catalogue number and that it is distributed by Shellshock. If any record shops have any trouble ordering it for you, please let us know and we will pass the information on to our distributors. It is also possible to order the CD from this website and from Amazon.co.uk.
