Alistair Sheerin played in the North East last at the Cluny 2 on 14th April, why am I now reviewing his music now?
Well due to a backlog of essays and what not when he was up playing live I didn’t get round to reviewing his music - but I never make a habit of going back on promises and so please read below all about this dapper young man and his modernistic music.
While listening to Alistair’s music you are taken back to the 1950’s / 60’s the era of the MOD and the great breath of music that came with it.
After been described as “Middlesbrough’s very own Miles Kane!” his demos had a lot to live up to – however I saw not disappointed. His demos consist of three song which are a mix of paces.
The first track “Why Why Why ?” is sweet song that is sweeping and captures your attention. Alistair’s vocals shine through and it is a pleasant song that is recognisably inspired by the likes of The Beatles and Bob Dylan, yet his own sense of style is marked clearly on the record.
The second track “Move With The Times” has a true sense of Rock ‘n’ Roll that I can be certain is a hit in his live shows. Full of energy and anthemic lyrics it is a great feel good tune.
The final demo track “Live The Way We Should” reminded me of Elton John to an extent not because it is a show song but instead a mellow track with strings, piano and a beautiful guitar solo to the end.
Overall Alister Sheerin is a name I think you should watch out for in the future as he sings with ease the songs that you would expect from the greats such as The Kinks to today’s Miles Kane.
