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.

MOD CULTURE REVIEW

There are very favourable reviews of both the debut Rinaldi Sings album and the new single ‘Come Fly With Me’ on the ModCulture.com website. “A really nice collection of sunshine pop with a modern twist and excellent production that really makes it jump out of the stereo” says the review. Read the reviews of ‘What’s It All About?’ and the ‘Come Fly With Me’.

MORE ALBUM PRAISE

The debut Rinaldi Sings album ‘What’s It All About?’ is reviewed in this month’s Uncut magazine. The three-star review reads as follows: “Coming on like a pre-Jude Law Alfie with a Pulp fixation, Steve Rinaldi leads an eight-piece band through bubblegum soul songs and Scott Walker-ish torch ballads (standout ‘A Matter Of Life And Death’) to rollicking effect. A real curio.”

The album also received a glowing four-star review in What’s On In London magazine.”This charming debut sits somewhere between the harder edged and super-earnest Dexy’s Midnight Runners and the ironic orchestral pop of The Divine Comedy,” reads the review. “The collection is stuffed with references to the iconography of Swinging London, starting with the obvious Alfie nod in the title: Rinaldi poses that question in the coda of the grin-inducing Mod mantra, ‘Heaven Knows’ (and the title of the song offers the endlessly ambiguous answer…). Another filmic homage comes with the thrilling Northern Soul dancer, ‘A Matter Of Life And Death’. You feel that David Niven, the star of that flick, would tap his toe elegantly to Steve Rinaldi’s sophisticated and yet heartfelt confection of the bubblegum pop of the likes of The Foundations (remember ‘Build Me Up Buttercup’?), and the timeless and poignant balladry of excellent tracks such ‘You’re Alive’ and ‘Come Again’. The ’60s revisited and revitalised.”

FESTIVAL TIME!

Rinaldi Sings will be playing two gigs in one day in Liverpool as part of the annual International Pop Overthrow festival.

Scheduled over five days in late May, all of the venues in the world famous Mathews Street will be utilised for the shows. Rinaldi Sings will be playing both of their gigs on Sunday May 29, kicking off at Lennon’s at 6.45pm, followed by a return to the world famous Cavern Club for a slot at 11.45pm.

Rinaldi Sings will also be playing another event related to the Mod Aid charity. The gig will be staged at Portsmouth’s South Parade Pier (where they filmed ‘Tommy’ apparently) on Sunday June 26. Rinaldi Sings will be second on the bill to Mark Joseph and his band. Other groups on the bill include Small World and Grasp.
