Mark Moraghan creates a buzz
"Moonlight's Back in Style (songs by Nicky Campbell)" by Mark Moraghan is creating a buzz among industry stalwarts who have been lucky enough to receive a pre-release copy of this much-anticipated debut. The album, which harks back to the cool swing of Sinatra (while remaining very much up-to-date), features original songs written by Nicky Campbell.
Here are just some of the comments the album has received so far:
- "A welcome venture into the world of swing. ‘Angel don't Cry' in particular is a charming and moving ballad." Sir Michael Parkinson
- "The lyrics are annoyingly good." Sir Tim Rice
- "On so many levels, this should not work, but on so many levels, it does." Paul Gambaccini
- "Stylish, intelligent and really good fun." Bob Harris
- "He is relaxed, easy and cool." Stewart Copeland (The Police)
- "Very tender, very passionate, very sexy - superb." CeCe Sammi
- "Lovely. It makes your spirit soar." Harry Hill
