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.

After last year’s glowing NME live review, Rinaldi Sings once again feature in the pages of Britain’s best rock weekly. The March 5 issue of the NME carries a review of the debut album, ‘What’s It All About?’: “An authentic trip round swinging Laandahn in the company of Steve Rinaldi - a man with a penchant for sunshiney pop and a voice only bettered by his ultra-sharp mohair suits.”


‘Come Fly With Me’ is to be released by Tangerine Records as the second Rinaldi Sings CD single on March 14. You can pre-order the single from record shops or from www.Amazon.co.uk, but if you can’t wait, you can already buy the single from this website. The track is a completely different recording of the song from the one featured on the album - so don’t hesitate to buy both.

The March issue of Record Collector carries a very favourable review of the debut Rinaldi Sings album ‘What’s It All About?’. The 3-star review by Alice Clark reads as follows: “Tonight Matthew, I’m going to be… Scott Walker, Jarvis Cocker, Benice Bobs Her Hair-era Divine Comedy, My Life Story, Andy Williams… Rinaldi Sings, the ex-Moment member Steve Rinaldi’s solo vehicle isn’t just some sorry pastiche though. Instead it’s a modern day take on the kind of blue eyed soulful pop that made the play list at the latter day Wigan Casino. Rinaldi even covers Kiki Dee’s northern soul spin, ‘On A Magic Carpet Ride’. Elsewhere he turns in a spiffy rendition of Tony Christie’s ‘Avenues And Alleyways’, his vocal an almost deadringer for Jake Shillingford’s, while original material showcases a wry lyricist and talented arranger, especially on the joyously infectious horn blast of ‘Happy’.” Check it out in the latest issue.


This website is now selling the new Rinaldi Sings album online from the shop section. ‘What’s It All About?’ is not due to be released until Monday, but as a special gesture to regular readers of this website it is possible to order the album now.

The debut Rinaldi Sings album, ‘What’s It All About?’ is reviewed in the March issue of Rip & Burn, the “21st century music magazine” for the download generation. “Steve Rinaldi wants to recreate the cockney swagger of 60s swinging London,” it reads. “He might look like an estate agent… but in his mind at least, Mr Rinaldi is Michael Caine in The Italian Job… Deeply peculiar - a revival of the Easy Listening revival! The big band sound is undeniably cheery.”

A glowing review of the album can also be found in the March issue of Scootering magazine. “Powerfully delivered and passionately performed, Rinaldi Sings transport you back to the days when pop meant something…”

Despite not being released until later this month, US music journalist Dawn Eden included the Rinaldi Sings album in her Top 10 records of the year in the annual Music Critics’ Poll in the Village Voice. She also featured ‘Avenues & Alleyways’ in her favourite singles of the year. Check out Rinaldi Sings on the Village Voice website.
