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...

Steve Rinaldi is still busy demoing songs for the second Rinaldi Sings album. “The album should be finished later this year,” says Steve. “I’ve started work on a follow-up song to ‘Lucky Day’, kind of adressing what are Holly, Sophie, Scottie Walker and Tommy Watson doing now. I’ve had lots of people saying how much they like that particular song and I thought it would be an interesting idea to see how their characters have developed in the last year or so.”
‘Lucky Day’ recently won the listeners vote on the UK Unsigned Show podcast. The show, which averages 700 downloads for each podcast, conducted a poll of the most popular song on it’s first ten podcasts and ‘Lucky Day’ was the clear winner. Steve has provided a message of thanks to be broadcast on the show this week.
Steve’s most recent stage appearance was guesting for Ian Page and The Affair in London on March 11. “I got my trombone out for the day,” says Steve. “The show was really well attended and the band were on top form. It was also great to hear Fay Hallam playing a set of songs from her recently released album. It was the first time I’d heard most of the songs and I really enjoyed them and I ordered the album the next day. Jel Lee from the Affair is also playing guitar on the recording. With his commitment to play on my second album he is becoming a bit of a guitar for hire at the moment. I had a few people ask about the recent inactivity of the Rinaldi Sings live outfit and I could only express my regret that at the moment the album is having to take precedence over live work, but we will be back!”
Steve also managed to catch a rare live appearance by Edward Ball, director of the Rinaldi Sings video for ‘Avenues & Alleyways’. “I really enjoyed seeing The Times gig at the Boston Arms in Tuffnel Park and it was great to catch up with two friends, Matthew Wiles and Bob Kelly - both are artists I admire tremendously and they were guesting in Ed’s band. Ed was on great form and there is a possibility that he might be getting involved in the recording of the album. It was also good to see Misty on backing vocals - she was in the video that Ed made for Avenues and Alleyways. She looked as fetching as ever in her black PVC catsuit!”
