Rinaldi Sings + Kelly's Heels,
Welwyn Garden City,
Rinaldi 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...

Fri. Jan 20 2006A MESSAGE FROM RINALDI!
With the Rinaldi Sings live band off the road for a while, it may have seemed like nothing’s been happening. But Steve Rinaldi has been keeping busy writing the second album. Here’s a few words from the man himself to tell you what he’s been up to.
“The songwriting for the second album is coming on a pace and I’ve been locked away over christmas and New Year writing and demoing. Apologies to all of you who’d like to see us play live but the gigging has had to be put on hold for the past couple of months while I work on the songs. I’ve got about three-quarters written so far. ‘What’s It All About?’ was recorded in three stints in the studio. This time we want the album to be recorded in one hit, so all the songs for the album as well as b sides need to be written and fully arranged before we go into the studio.
“I’m really pleased with the songs so far. I was so amazed with how ‘What’s It All About?’ sounded that I was a little worried about being able to make the next one as good. But I can’t wait to start the recording proper as I’m really excited with the songs demoed so far and I can already hear three or four singles amongst them. I’m looking forward to having Jel Lee of The Affair add his guitar playing to the Rinaldi Sings sound in the studio.
“On December 23 I had the great pleasure of putting down the vocal mic and picking up my trombone to play with Ian Page and The Affair at The Standard in Walthamstow. Because of Rinaldi Sings commitments, it’s been a while since I’ve been able to play with them.The last time was at the 100 club and that was quite some time ago. They are a great live band and Ian’s singing is always superb, and he was in top form again.
“I hope you all have a great 2006 - I promise that Rinaldi Sings will!”
