There is a warmth and richness to Graham’s voice with a power that comes from deep down. His vocal ability is undeniably strong with the ability to project across the room. Graham’s choice of songs showcased his range – including some fabulous tongue twisting comic phrasing when paying homage to Victoria Woods.
His rendition of “The First Time I Ever Saw Your Face” was extremely haunting, giving the song an operatic feel to it which made the poignant lyrics soar to a different level. His intention is clear: to make each song he sings his own. This is a wonderful talent that puts him in a category of performer that few can assert too. Graham also knows how to write with his self-penned “I Miss You Most On Sundays”, that he unashamedly admits came from his own life experience. These are of course the best songs to hear, as the sincerity is not in doubt.
A beautiful man with a voice to match. With masterful support by Ian Elmslie on the piano – who also performed his own original song “The Other Man” from a musical is he currently writing. The evening was a sensational examination of the splendour of technique and the expert delivery of pure musical craft and showmanship.
