Rockin and Shoutin the Blues (Bullseye/Rounder). Review by David Whited
Consolers of the Lonely (Third Man/ Warner Brothers). Review by Jen Cray.
With material co-credited to Paul McCartney, Jean-Philip Grobler‘s Kites has caught the attention of music industry luminaries. However, he’s intent to make music his way, in his own time, resulting in his current EP You and I in the Kaleidoscope. Three years to make an EP? Grobler talks about that misconception, and promises his next shot of arena rock won’t take so long, but warns it might include a full orchestra in St. Paul’s Cathedral. S D Green tries to harmonize with the former South African choirboy.
