Live report: James Maddock & David Immergluck Dec 13, 2012 - James Maddock is one of rockâ€™s best kept secrets. An englishman in New York: he moved to the East Cost a decade ago and he never went back. His music sounds american, as he was born ther - pure, clear songwriting in the vein of Bruce Springsteen. He debuted in the early noughties leading Wood, then came back later as a solo artist, releasing a couple of records (â€śSunrise on avenue Câ€ť and â€śWake up and dreamâ€ť), as well as a couple of live albums recorded at NYâ€™s Redwood Hall, where he's almost a resident artist. Heâ€™s been touring both with his band and with David Immergluck - guitarist and mandolinist with Counting Crows (and in the past with Cracker, John Hiatt among the others). The duo renamed themselves Jimmy & Immy and have been touring together for a year, releasing also a live album. We saw them for the second time in a year in Milan, at Nidaba Club. And should they ever pass near your town, go see them too. You could discover one of todayâ€™s best â€śclassicâ€ť songwriters - with a soulful, graspy, Rod Stewart-like voice. Accompanied by a supreme musicians: Immergluck spent half the evening on mandolin - showcasing heâ€™s one of the few artists that gives this instruments a real sense in rock music - half on acoustic guitar, colouring Maddock's masterful songs like "Mister universe" or "When the sun's out".
