Artists discuss the 13 records that shaped their lives

13. Tim BuckleyGoodbye And Hello

I’d seen a TV performance of Tim Buckley, he walked on and just played this incredible song, ‘Song To The Siren’, it blew me away. The first album I got was Happy Sad, and the playing on that – the vibes, the texture, the voice, the lyrics… I was in. At that time I was doing a lot of building with blocks with my son. He doesn’t like music, but we both loved this album. I noticed during ‘Carnival Song’ that his little legs and arms were going, that he was giving it a chance. So it’s an important album to me.
