    I think the musical reinterpretations he’d done sound amazing (esp. Running Up That Hill) but his voice just doesn’t work for me. It’s a little too cabaret for me. I admire his passion though for Kate. It’s amazing to see the flurry of Kate news!

    I joined Theos Facebook page following a heads up on his work, there are one or two clips of him singing Kate songs, alternatively they can be found on Youtube – worth a listen!

  3. Jazzonline writes ‘underrated…’ By who? WHO? Even people who are Kate fans don’t underrate her. Sorry, I just couldn’t let that one go.
