Do Me A Kind­ness (Grand Har­mo­nium Records) Al­bum

Steve Adey has re­leased two crit­i­cally ac­claimed al­bums.His de­but, 2006’s All Things Real and the fol­low-up six years , The Tower Of Si­lence, proved him to be an alt­pop song­writer of note. Third time round he has taken on the chal­lenge of in­ter­pret­ing other peo­ple’s songs. Do Me A Kind­ness in­cludes songs by PJ Har­vey, Mor­ris­sey, Bob Dy­lan and Por­tishead. Adey ex­plained: “I was con­stantly think­ing how could I turn th­ese songs in­side out but still re­tain the core of what makes them great?’’ It takes a brave (and tal­ented) artist to take on clas­sics such as Ev­ery­day Is Like Sun­day but Adey has the skills and pas­sion to pull it off.
