Findlay Napier, Glasgow. Album Review.

Liverpool Sound and Vision Rating 8.5/10

It takes an artist to paint a picture in which the local chippy is given prominence, a sense of the Lowry inhabiting a mind which grasps, understands and exemplifies the uniqueness of the human mind to make the ordinary explode with colour and reason and make what we see just astonishing, the passion of the painter’s eye capturing a detail that many would gloss over or not see at all.

Liverpool Sound and Vision Rating 9/10

The music Rooms of the Philharmonic Hall are exactly the type of venue that were made for the writings and compositions of an artist such as Findlay Napier, the sense of beauty that is carried within the lyrics, the harmony that exists between musician and their chosen weapon of virtue and the deeply held implication of the offering that can be felt without being blinded by lights and dazzled by distance; for Findlay Napier and his visit to Liverpool this was as close to heavenly, funny, anarchic but brilliant, as an audience could ask for.

Liverpool Sound and Vision Rating 9/10

Life is a balance between wanting to slip quietly into the pages of history having lived a life of good introspection, loved by family and friends but not wanting to cause ripples in the water and the need to leave some kind of mark so that history, in which ever guise, will look back upon your life on Earth with more than a curious footnote attached to your name; to be the one six million that whose name might inspire countless others to live a life and not be content to become a whisper in the breeze.
