Rumer: Come to me High
The Review Show, the new name for Newsnight Review, has never been the same since Tom Paulin retired. Now it comes from Glasgow they seem to have trouble getting enough interesting panelists - and trouble keeping the less interesting ones sober.
But here is a gem from the show, broadcast a few weeks ago.
Rumer (real name Sarah Joyce) will have to be careful not to be pigeonholed as the new Karen Carpenter or condemned to a life of recording Burt Bacharach standards. Because she is a considerable songwriter as well as the possessor of a distinctive voice, as this performance shows.
There is also a family connection with one of this blog's heroes. Rumer's partner is Chris Winwood, son of the legendary Muff and nephew of Steve.
