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...

Sun. Jan 30 2005RINALDI SINGS JOIN MOD AID
Steve Rinaldi spent the weekend contributing to the recording of the Mod Aid 20 single, a cover version of the Small Faces’ ‘Whatcha Gonna Do About It’. Featuring a host of stars from 40 years of mod, the recording session boasted impressive vocal performances from PP Arnold, Chris Farlowe, Reg Presley of The Troggs, and Andy Ellison of John’s Children. It all featured original Small Faces keyboard player Jimmy Winston, who had played on the hit version of the song 40 years earlier. Ron Wood of the Rolling Stones and Ocean Colour Scene’s Steve Craddock turned up to lay down the guitar parts, while representing the newest generation of talent were current hot ticket Mark Joseph and Steve Rinaldi, who added trombone and backing vocals. Rinaldi Sings trumpet player Tim Pannell also joined the five-piece brass section for the day.
The recording featured contributions from members of the Purple Hearts, The Chords and Secret Affair, while the biggest surprise came when Steve Marriott’s daughter Molly Marriott turned up to lay down a lead vocal on b-side track ‘Afterglow’, recording her version of the song on what would have been her father’s 58th birthday.
Steve Rinaldi: “It was an enjoyable occasion as some very talented singers and musicians left their egos at the door and chipped in to make this record for such a worthy cause. It was also an amazing experience because although the recording was long and tiring, everyone pitched in and some great friendships were forged. I can only speak for myself but getting to know PP Arnold and Mark Joseph made the day particularly special - both of them spent nearly two days in the studio, both made a sensational vocal contribution and both spent a lot of time encouraging the performances of the other artists. Spending that much time chatting to PP Arnold was an amazing experience - she’s a fantastic lady and remains one of my favourite singers. I also enjoyed swapping experiences with Mark Joseph, a tremendously talented singer/songwriter. I’d never met him before, but I’m defintiely going to be in the front row when he next plays.”
A release date has yet to be finalised for the record, but proceeds will be split between the Band Aid charity and the Tsunami Appeal.
