    Impossible to be soulful he is a ginger

      worth a six-pack of Hakanoa though…

      • tarkwin

        I’ll take a six pack over his warbling any day.

      • LesleyNZ

        No way!

      • tarkwin I’m with you – I dont like his style of music & I dont think it’s that original…reminds of James Morrison (dont like him either)…I think it has that kind of whininy sound that Coldplay first came out with when they sang “Yellow”. Much prefer the vocals of Dave Grohl, Josh Homme & Mike Patton 

    • Mike Hunt

      you can be soulful whilst being soulless i’m sure

    Just beautiful – coincidentally hubby listening to him right now on his laptop – he made the comment that Ed Sheeran give gingerheads a good name! – an incredible musician. So creative. Love his lyrics and sound.

       I am with you Lesley, great sound.   Sounds abit like Tracy Chapman.   These other above guys are probably more in to the Justin Bebo and hip hop stuff.   

      • I adore Tracey Chapman and I cant see the similaries at all. She was a ground breaker, he seems more mainstream. Very talented though, just not my thing. As for the Beiber kid – I think the readers here would be a little old to ‘appreciate’ his genre. At least I hope so….talented kid but again cliche
