Join Nick Coleman, one of Britain’s foremost music critics (Time Out, Independent), as he examines how the human voice affects our emotions. This evening, in conversation with writer and journalist Fiona Sturges, he explores what singing means and how it works. Why is the singing of others so essential to human life? Why do we love it so?
Along the way he asks why Jagger and Lennon sing like that (and not like this), who Joni Mitchell thinks she is, and what did Aretha Franklin do to deserve the title ‘Queen of Soul’? Prepare to be entertained with plenty of examples of some of the finest pop, rock and soul voices.
