What? Richard Swift

There was a practically a riot caused by A&R men scrapping for his signature at SXSW last year. Luckily the wonderful Secretly Canadian won the fight and release his latest offering ‘The Atlantic Ocean’ sometime in April. He’s dubbed as a ‘contemporary piano balladeer’ and boy does he have talent. Taking in styles from Mowtown soul to Doo-wop to American pop there’s a great mix of sounds all delivered with his wonderful rich voice and wry sense of humour.
