His voice traverses the octaves with ease and sends tingles shooting down the spine. In Make Me A King, Paul Capsis explores the rich legacy of his musical heroes and influences including Lou Reed, Leonard Cohen, Billie Holiday, Nina Simone, Dinah Washington and REM.
Accompanied by an extraordinary jazz trio led by Alister Spence, Make Me A King channels Capsis’s neurotic energy and offers a special twist to a range of timeless rock, soul, jazz and blues classics.
