Any views? Never seen or heard him before but liked his set although he came across as very intense

I'm a huge fan. Loved the set, and his voice is something else. It's the first time I've seen him outside of small clubs, and he definitely held his own. Not all his songs are serious - give self service checkout shuffle a listen to see what I mean. Really nice bloke as well.

Thanks I will do. Also thought the song about spam emails was amusing

I thought he was the blandest act of the weekend. Not bad, just, whatever.
I was sure I knew the name and had seen him before, but couldn't remember anything about him. Now I know why. Totally forgettable.

I just thought he started out with a load of songs that were more suitable to a more intimate venue.
Then about twenty minutes from the end he kicked off. Probably too late.

I thought the last few songs, with the band taking more of a role, were really good.

Am I allowed to say that he’s very easy on the eye?  Roll Eyes

Er, his music was great too - sounded a bit like David Gray

Didn't really get him - I can't remember any of his stuff now.

I think I saw you in an ice-cream parlour, drinking milk shakes cold and long
Smiling and waving and looking so fine, don't think

Yep, exactly what I thought, except Passenger has some memorable tunes.
