A Sip of H20

Standard

Some voices are so distinctive you know who is singing the second they hit that first note. Former H2O frontman, Ian Donaldson, has one of the most beautifully recognisable voices of the Eighties and, I am pleased to say, he is my special guest on tonight’s My 80s Radio Show. Listen to Radio Cabin from 9pm this evening to hear him choose his Favourite Five tracks from the decade, and talk about his current musical ventures.

Angel Pale Is Just Outside Of Heaven

Standard

Fans of the Eighties will be pleased to know that one of the most distinctive voices of the decade makes a welcome return to the world of music today, as Ian Donaldson  releases his solo single “Angel Pale”. On his return, the former lead singer of H2O says:

“I went into different areas with my voice … maybe higher at times than I have done in the past. I think people will remember a baritone, but I’ve explored a top range. Again, no limitations there, but I’d like to think tonally people will recognise it, and not be disappointed.”

I can guarantee you will not be disappointed and, although a diversification from the recordings of three decades ago, there is no hiding the mesmerising tones that brought us the Top 40 hits “I Dream To Sleep” and “Just Outside of Heaven”.
