On this dreary, blustery, sprinkly weekend, I'm reminded of England -- and continue to be inspired by Brit singer songwriter extraordinaire Richard Ashcroft. Staying inside allowed me the luxury of time to find some of his solo efforts online. This Verve frontman is just moody enough (yet surprisingly romantic at the same time) to set the tone for a rainy weekend.
Here are two of my favorite finds - Ashcroft with Coldplay at Live 8 (the highlight of the multi-day concert and Bob Geldof benefit) and a great love song that is not available on iTunes (yet)! I expect with the release of the new Verve album his music will get some rekindled recognition.
