Juan Zelada - High Ceilings And Collarbones Album Review

Juan Zelada High Ceilings And Collarbones Album

Review of High Ceilings And Collarbones Album by Juan Zelada

Hailing from Madrid, Spain, Juan Zelada releases his debut album after receiving support from Radio 2 and signing to the same label that houses the likes of Paul Simon and Jamie Cullum. An impressive tour of 25 dates within a month will support the record, starting March 28 in Northampton.

Opening with soulful harmonies and jazz piano piece, 'The Blues Remains' has encapsulating warmth with a touch of big band brass. A change to acoustic guitar on 'Battle of Spitalfields' finds Zelada equally likeable, sounding like a less contrived version of James Morrison and all the better for it. The country-tinged 'Baby Be Mine' sees the quality stutter, but ears are quickly recaptured by the breezy 'Elsewhere' whilst not singing along to 'What Do I Know' proves rather difficult after a couple of plays. Taking a more serious tone is 'Open Up My Eyes', a sweeping ballad that really highlights the potential of this singer-songwriter, whilst the live version of 'Don't Hold Me Down' not only shows a capable stage performer, but someone who can inject some fun rock and roll. Though chart success may have eluded Zelada thus far this album is the announcement of a welcome new talent - hopefully it will get the commercial recognition it deserves.
