¶  From busking in the London Underground to assembling a host of jazzy pop players to cut an album. Wayne Myers is a DIY artist with a knack for writing catchy melancholic pop songs, about halfway The Real Tuesday Weld and The Buzzcocks. He creates his own comics too, about the ups an downs of being a professionial musician trying to make a living with his band Fit and the Conniptions.
¶  With Sweet Sister Starlight Myers follows the back road of UK pop. Switching between blues, folk, pop and jazz the band provides a comfy bed for Myers' relaxed vocals. A superb Sunday Morning album that flows like a crystal clear brook. You would never guess that it has taken over three years to make. Myers is an entertainer, a lounge lizard and a bluesy folkie rolled into one. A below-the-radar musical Robin Hood with a soft playing band of Merry Men capable of surprise attacks.
