Fredo Viola - The Turn

Fredo Viola is a jack of all trades artist who describes himself as an American singer/songwriter and multi-media artist. His music melds elements of 60's pop, psychedelia, electronica, and sews it all together with his exquisite (I say, good show!) voice. 'The Turn' came to me as a brilliant surprise -- I'd only heard Fredo's "The Sad Song" prior (which appeared on both 'Sad Song EP' and 'The Turn', as well as being featured in the remake of The Manchurian Candidate) -- which garnered him some attention and led to a collaboration with Massive Attack.

Def one of 2008's best so far, and an exciting artist to keep tabs on.
