My interview with singer Simone Felice on the For Folk’s Sake website:
“Perhaps appropriately for someone who’s just landed in the UK, the first thing Simone Felice does when I ask how he’s doing is mention the weather.
‘I’m just generally glad to be alive and glad it’s spring at last,’ the singer says.
He’s not exaggerating either. Felice hails from the Catskills Mountains in upstate New York, which was pretty much closed down by severe weather this winter.
‘It was the toughest winter of my whole life. It was like Siberia.’
Felice has just released his second solo album Strangers and, pardon the analogy, it’s a lot sunnier than his eponymous debut.”
