EP Review. Anthony Strong - Delovely

A new name to me, Anthony Strong, but he comes with the endorsement of Jamie Cullum - "Great singer, great pianist" - Rod Stewart - "Amazing" and Sir Michael Parkinson - "He's got a great deal of talent." As such I felt it my duty to listen to this young man and I'm rather glad I did.
The five tracks reveal Strong to be everything the above suggest. He has a cool voice with just a shade of Tormé, a touch of Joe Mooney (if you don't know Mooney check him out!) and a little Harry Connick jnr.
The boy plays good piano too.
Tea For Two, Cheek To Cheek, For Once in my Life and the title song plus the bonus track - an original, Going Nowhere, make listening to this a delightful experience.
The disc is launched at Pizza Express on Sept. 27 followed by some dates in the home counties with a sortie up to Birmingham and over to Manchester.
