five stars '...a songwriter of uncommon originality...an album that you just can't stop playing.' The Observer

4 stars 'Music should be fun and the new album from pianist and singer/songwriter Joe Stilgoe is just that.' The Telegraph 

4 stars '...it's impossible not to be swept along by the album's welcoming embrace...there's also a superb duet with the incomparable Liane Carroll.' Jazzwise

4 stars 'His third album is an express journey - in an exquisitely furnished, authentic carriage - back to a pre-bebop era of bronzed, big-band swing, and witty pianist-singers.' The Arts Desk

'Longtime jazz lovers will need no reminding of Stilgoe's talents as a very British version of Harry Connick Jr.' The Sunday Times  

 

New Songs For Old Souls is Joe's first studio album for Linn Records, following his signing to the label in 2014. The album comprises twelve songs with ten terrific originals by Joe, including three thrilling big band numbers: 'Nobody Cares Like Me', 'Pocket Song' and a new version of 'Gold On Silver', previously heard on Songs On Film Live.

Joe's seamless ability to mix contemporary style with a fond nostalgia for the Golden Era of Gene Kelly and Louis Prima means his 'old soul' finds a perfect match in these 'new songs'. Joe's trademark catchy hooks and clever lyrics (full of intricate rhymes and clever twists reminiscent of Irving Berlin and Cole Porter) create an instant familiarity.

Joe also duets with Liane Carroll on a wistful cover of Brian Wilson's 'I Just Wasn't Made For These Times', one of the album's two non-original songs.
