Joe Stilgoe is many things. He is a pianist and occasional drummer, a jazz musician and a singer. He is an actor, a comedian, a star of stage and small screen. He has a very familiar surname, and a way with a familiar style of music that he somehow makes sound new, and fresh, and vibrant. He is a stalwart of the live circuit, and a perennially hot ticket. He plays locally, and internationally (next stop Barbados). He’s made albums, the second of which, 2012’s We Look to the Stars, went to number one in Amazon’s jazz chart. There is a new album imminent. It’s called New Songs for Old Souls, and, not merely because it is traditional to say this of new albums, it’s his best one yet. He is also a new father, and the knowledge of impending fatherhood 9 months ago inspired him to write one of the stand-out tracks on the album – ‘Rainbows In My Teacup’.
