I first fell in love with Rob Dickinson’s voice when he sang with Catherine Wheel and I’ve been a fan ever since.
I recently got a chance to watch Rob Dickinson perform live in Toronto with Neverending White Lights. For most of his set it was just Rob with an acoustic guitar playing songs from his solo album Fresh Wine for the Horses and trust me… there was nothing else needed. Rob’s voice is as powerful as ever and his stage presence is mesmerizing. Considering that he was just seated on a stool, playing a guitar and singing… he really held the audiences attention from start to finish and I’m looking forward to seeing him play again in future. Rumour has it he’ll be back in Toronto this summer. I wouldn’t miss it for the world.
Rob Dickinson later performed a song with Neverending White Lights that again proved his powerful voice and stage presence. I swear, you barely need to mic this guy, his voice is that strong.
Here’s a taste of Rob’s solo album, Fresh Wine for the Horses – one of my favourite tracks on the album – “Oceans”
And while we’re at it I’ll throw in “Black Metallic” which was recorded when he was with Catherine Wheel which he also performed last month during his set in Toronto. Another favourite of mine.
Enjoy your Friday!
