Paul Hadfield The video for "Let's face the music and dance" was so uplifting and got played in our house many times in early lockdown - it never failed to make us smile! Favorite track: Let's Face the Music and Dance.

greggref I love Callum's restrained singing. You feel like he could easily overpower the song with his vocal gifts but he delivers a subtle and deep rendition of this classic. As does the backing band, too.
Favorite track: Let's Face the Music and Dance.
