Another one of me faves, Mr Matt Monro. I love singing Matt's stuff and this is one I recorded in one take back in 2012. I posted it on to YouTube where it's had over 3,400 views and lots of nice compliments. My Matt tribute always features as part of my crooner legends tribute show. I...

Another one of my Scott Walker tributes with the 6os classic 'Joanna'. While credited to Tony Hatch and Jackie Trent it appears that Scott wrote some lyrics to the song. I hope it sounds okay and thanks for listening. Mikeyp xx...

Here's another of my Engelbert tributes. Les Bicyclettes de Belsize. I love singing Engelbert songs in his style. As odd as it sounds, I have to almost do a pub singer impression to try and capture his phrasing, although there was nothing pub singer about his incredible voice. Singing Engelbert makes me appreciate how much of...

Just thought I'd share this one. I hope it sounds and looks okay...

My version of the Jobim classic. I hope it sounds okay. Thanks for listening xx "Garota de Ipanema" ("The Girl from Ipanema") is a Brazilian bossa nova jazz song. It was a worldwide hit in the mid-1960s and won a Grammy for Record of the Year in 1965. It was written in 1962, with music by Antônio Carlos Jobim and Portuguese lyrics...

It's easy to dismiss Engelbert as cheesy kitsch because of his ridiculous stage name and schlager-style schmaltz, but Gerry Dorsey has an amazing...

Another show in the very beautiful Cave Castle Hotel & Country Club. For more info please visit: Cave Castle March 17 - Mikey Powell Sings The Crooner legends Show Hope to see you there! :)   Mikeypx    ...

As I've mentioned in a previous post, I always consider myself really lucky when I'm invited to sing at beautiful historic venues so I thought I'd share this one as well. Willington Hall Hotel in Tarporley is a country house and estate in the Cheshire countryside. Apparently they host more than 70 weddings a year but...

Doing a gig in Bathgate in Scotland with Danny Roman as Tom Jones, then none other than Susan Boyle pops in to our dressing room to say hello before watching the show. Apparently she loves a bit of Tom Jones and Michael Buble so it was lovely of her to welcome us to Bathgate Regal Theatre. Mikeyp x ...
