I knew Marcus Reeves was talented, and could pen a song. In addition I had the pleasure of meeting him last year, and what a sharp, intelligent, focused and witty man he is.   Furthermore, his understanding of music and songwriting was overwhelming, as we discussed these subjects at a bar in Denmark Street London WC1.  So, when I received his latest offering, I did not hesitate for a second before hitting the play button, and the track I heard increased my already high opinion of Marcus Reeves. 


His latest single, Mistaken Identity,  is a saucy power pop single, with a starchy guitar  topped with horn line, that reminds me of T Rex, so catchy you find yourself singing along and dancing straight away, a sign of a great songwriter.  With vocals that are angry and tuneful, into a real dark journey, a true ditty with attitude on a par with the young Rolling Stones. The song is structured well, with the classic music drop down and the vocals slowly working back into the rhythm of the track.  The media recently moaned how dull the Brits is, well if Marcus Reeves had performed this single he would have brought the house down. With this being the start of 2013, I am sure that by the close of the year, Reeves’s collection of songs will be mind blowing, if Mistaken Identity is anything to go by then I can’t wait…….
