STARSAILOR FRONTMAN JAMES WALSH HAS A VOICE – BOLD, TENDER AND TRUE – WHICH HAS SOMETIMES BEEN COMPARED TO THAT OF HIS MUSICAL HERO JEFF BUCKLEY.
In this new edition of The Mouthcast Walsh looks back at Buckley’s classic GRACE and reflects on what makes Bruce Springsteen such a compelling live performer. He discusses his own debut solo album TURNING POINT – including the track FIRING LINE, which featured the mighty Suzanne Vega. He also reflects on the recently reactivated Starsailor’s phenomenal ascent from pub gigs in Wigan to the platinum-selling debut album LOVE IS HERE, in 2001, and remembers the band’s unusually passive studio sessions with legendary producer Phil Spector… James Walsh plays BERKOFEST at Berkhamstead Cricket Club on Saturday 10th September, alongside Miles Hunt & Erica Nockalls, Republica, the Hackney Colliery Band and Robin Ince.
