Plenty of good rockin’, vintage soul vibes as Si Cranstoun strolls back into Hideaway for a home turf gig that’s guaranteed to leave you with the ‘Sweetest Feeling’!
“Wow! How Good Is Si Cranstoun?” Chris Evans, BBC Radio 2 Breakfast Show
“Infectious!! Motown Soul fused with Rock & Roll” Chris Wells, Echoes Magazine
“… a classy throwback to the classic sound of the early sixties” The Express
Cranstoun’s vocal style has been compared to the likes of Jackie Wilson and Sam Cooke, while his music is a pure blend of northern soul, Motown and vintage pop. With hugely catchy hooks and a contemporary sound that also captures the look and feel of a golden era in soul and R&B, Cranstoun’s sound is full of the classic energy and verve of a bygone era but brought up to the present day, prompting Chris Evans to describe him as “A squeeze of The Bee Gees, a bit of Billy Joel, a dash of Dean Freidman, and a ripple of Rodriguez.”
From South London busker to supporting Little Richard in Las Vegas followed by a major record deal with Warners, the rise of this soulful singer who finds his roots in the late fifties and early sixties golden era of music has been spectacular securing him a host of radio play and TV appearances.
