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.

Mon. May 7 2007NEW ALBUM ON THE WAY
After several months in the studio, the second Rinaldi Sings album is finally nearing completion. “Most of the parts are recorded now,” says Steve Rinaldi. “I’ve just got to finish recording the brass parts, a little bit of cello and Rowan has to come in to lay down her backing vocals, and then we’ll be ready to start mixing. It’s sounding really good.”
The session has featured guest appearances from many musicians, such as Bob Kelly of Kelly Heels and guitarist Dave Cairns. It has also included the recording of a cover version of the Jetset’s ‘Do You Wanna Be In The Show’ for a Jetset tribute album that will be released in the USA later this year. “That was fun to do,” admits Steve. “The Jetset are one of my favourite bands. I was lucky enough to work with Paul Bevoir on my first album and it’s been a pleasure to record one of his best songs for this tribute album.”
“We’ve recorded 16 songs so far, including 14 of my own songs, plus ‘Do You Wanna Be In The Show’ and one other cover version,” add Steve. “The only problem at the moment is to decide which are the best 12 songs for the album.”
While the recording has been ongoing, Steve has been rehearsing for some live shows, with a new live line-up of the band debuting at The Cavern in Liverpool on May 25, as part of the IPO Festival.
