One Life Left

The Joiners - April 2006

Judging by the reaction from the female portion of the crowd, to the introduction of One Life Left’s lead singer, he’s quite a looker. I don’t really feel at liberty to comment, being a heterosexual male, but let’s just say that if ‘cheek bones’ and ‘jaw line’ were categories on ‘Band Frontman’ Top Trumps, he’d score pretty highly. And he uses it well with a confident but not cocky presence. Close your eyes and he’s just as impressive with superb vocal range and control. That’s not to take anything away from the rest of the band, who are tight, rhythmic and melodious in all the right ways. If they came to the top of my Top Trumps hand, I could do a lot worse than to play the ‘ones to watch’ category.
