London, United Kingdom, September 22, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- This contemporary-retro type of music will appeal to listeners of all ages who enjoy a laid back, easy listening vibe and soft acoustic melodies. While it is reminiscent of albums from the ‘60’s and early ‘70’s, ‘Stop all the Clocks’ has a distinctly fresh sound and contemporary feel.
Alongside Nemo’s own tracks, such as the magical and delicate ‘Angel Song’, and the catchy ‘Ireland’ tune, (played on ‘BBC’s Introducing’ programme), are a diverse and captivating selection of cover versions - from psychedelic band, Love’s, ‘Orange Skies,’ Simon & Garfunkel’s ‘The Only Living Boy in New York’ - to a unique production of Michael Jackson’s ‘Earth Song.’
Leonard Cohen’s ‘Hey, That’s no Way to Say Goodbye’, and Donovan’s little known, ‘To Try for the Sun,’+ are also featured on this quality 12-track album. Reviewing Donovan’s ‘To Try for the Sun,’ Comparative Video 101 blog commented: “One of the best versions of these is that of Nemo Shaw, a young UK musician with a 60’s sensibility who like Leitch himself is a Scot. Shaw’s voice, timbre, and intonation remind me a bit of a young Graham Nash.”
The final track is the haunting ‘Stop all the Clocks Song’ a.k.a ‘Funeral Blues.’ Nemo composed the music to accompany Auden’s poem - made famous in the 1994 film, ‘Four Weddings and a Funeral’ - transforming it into ‘popular’ song for the very first time.
This is an album with a difference. The artist’s reflective and poetic lyrics, clear gentle voice, sensitive delivery and Scottish accent, all combine to produce a unique and memorable style, setting him apart from other musicians.
