A very dear friend of mine is a rather good singer/songwriter/piano playing/tea drinking/northerner. He has set himself the challenge of writing a brand new song a week and is raising money for Parkinson’s UK.
If you like cleverly written songs with a cheeky edge then please check out his blog A Song a Week.
Personally I think his music is a mix of Ben Folds, Squeeze and a dash of Randy Newman. If you’re ever in the Kingston area keep an eye for his live sets.
