Mu­sic: Ru­fus Wain­wright

Sunday Independent (Ireland) - Living - - R14EVIEW -

Ru­fus Wain­wright is my all-time favourite mu­si­cian, he’s a poet prince, a bril­liant writer, and gor­geously hon­est. The hon­esty is im­por­tant to me be­cause I don’t like the ve­neer of celebrity, the glossy, pre­tence el­e­ment. Ru­fus and his fam­ily keep it real with their lyrics and also in in­ter­view. I love Ru­fus’s per­sonal style: all vel­vet and sparkly brooches and bright colours. I’ve been to see him in New York, Lon­don, Toronto and all over Ire­land; there’s a spe­cial kind of magic to a Ru­fus gig.
