While visiting my home town of Burton On Trent last week, I stumbled upon the amazing talent of local singer songwriter Nick Aslam, who is quoted to be, ‘One of the Uk’s most original sounding acoustic singer songwriters.’
With great support from the BBC and local radio stations across the UK, this has given Nick the opportunity to land support slots with Mark Morris from the Blue Notes and Boz Boorer songwriter for the Smiths, as well as playing acoustic venues such as O2 and UK festivals. Therefore, I was thrilled to be given a complimentary CD of Nicks latest album - Night Train.
So, last night MR R and I sat down and listened to what all the hype of this new talented singer had to offer. I have to say the hype is true; Nick Aslam is a true professional. Although we really enjoyed the first track Night Train, I have to say the second track -The World’s End was a big hit for us both. This was really when we appreciated Nick’s flair of being a first-class musician, taking me back to my youth with a mix of Beautiful South, with a hint of Robbie, only best described as a folkish pop that I really, really love. Forget Sam Smith or Justin Bibier, Nick Aslam is the one to be looking out for.
