Following the release of his sixth album, 85% Proof, last year the singer-songwriter changes into some comfortable trousers and talks Ian Wade through his 13 all-time favourite records


Eva Cassidy - Songbird
I think Eva Cassidy falls more into the Enya category. When it first came out, I think the thing with Eva Cassidy - and I deliberately chose her - is that she was an amazing singer, and there's very few people who could sing like her. The songs on there - 'Autumn Leaves', 'Fields Of Gold' - it's an amazing covers record, and she really influenced me actually, as a singer. Her voice is so clean, and I'm quite a clean singer. I lived for that record for about two to three years.
