About this item

From Scunthorpe, but having lived in Manchester for a few years, Stephen Fretwell has been 'Boy Most Likely To' for a while now. His "8 Songs" mini-album and 2 EPs have sold like hotcakes in our shop and if you liked them you're going to love this album. It was recorded in Abbey Road and is lush, full yet never over-done. It's still open-hearted, melancholy and beautiful stuff - a little Dylan, a little Kloot-ish- but just so tastefully coloured in that you feel he may just one day walk out of the cosy, dark haven of the Night And Day bar into the dazzle of international stardom! Certainly there have been few better songs than "Play", "Emily" or "Lost Without You" written this year. It's too late for our Year End chart but you can be sure this record would have been right up there if it hadn't have been. It's effortlessly classic. You'll all love it!
