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...

Sun. Nov 20 2005SPLENDID ALBUM REVIEWS
Word keeps spreading around the web about the Rinaldi Sings album ‘What’s It All About?’. Two recent webzine reviews have sung the praises of the album. “Within the current pop landscape, ‘What’s It All About?’ is unique,” writes SplendidZine.com. “By referencing swinging London in both his music and his style, Rinaldi is reviving whatever it was that engendered the enormous response to The Beatles and their ilk. Fortunately, he has the benefit of modern ironic detachment, which makes his clear passion for the music seem genuine.”Another web review, on IndiePages.com says: “This cd kinda took me by surprise. It has a jazzy bubblegum, almost kitschy pop sound full of jaunty horns, strings, soulful backing vocals and of course Rinaldi’s croon - what’s surprising is that I kind of like it! The sound is somewhere between the Foundations and the Divine Comedy!” And for those of you who can read Spanish, check out the review on PopMadrid.com.
Steve Rinaldi, meanwhile, is busy writing and demoing songs for the second Rinaldi Sings CD. With about two thirds of the album written, the plan is to go back into the studio early in the New Year - but Steve is determined not to rush the process as he wants to ensure the new material lives up to the high standards he has already set himself with ‘What’s It All About?’. Steve has even been run through his paces on one song by former Dance Network producer Paul Bultitude, who has spent a couple of days with Steve helping to develop arrangements on a song called ‘Come As You Are, You’re A Star’.
