He was the superstar who topped the UK and US single charts in the 70s with songs of endearing tunefulness, unabashed sentiment and existentialist musings. Today, British singer-songwriter Gilbert O’Sullivan continues to be regarded with tremendous affection and his songs remain well-loved around the world.
Gilbert is still writing, recording, performing and touring with success. His lasts concerts received rave reviews for his undiminished voice and '…the enduring quality of his work - the sheer tunefulness, lyrical gymnastics and wit' (Daily Post, 2012).
His current compilation entered the UK album charts at Number 12 Gilbert O'Sullivan: The Very Best Of - A Singer & His Songs (2012) and following this Ooh Wakka Doo became the theme song for National Lottery adverts across the UK. Cover versions of his songs continue to be released, in particular Alone Again, (Naturally), with the latest being Neil Diamond and Diana Krall featuring Michael Buble.
And now, with the completion of his latest album, recorded in Madrid with a Latin influence, Latin Ala G is due for release early June with tour dates to coincide with this throughout the UK and Ireland. Gilbert and his band are very much looking forward to going back out on the road.
'Gilbert O’Sullivan has finally taken his rightful place as one of the country’s top singer/songwriters… A great evening – a great concert from a great performer.'
