British Talent - Captain Backfire @captainbackfire

Hello. *waves*, another day another beautiful talent from the UK to showcase. Out of all the posts I've written in the British Talent category, this guy probably has the coolest name...of course he has the singing/song-writing chops to go along with it, but his name....its cool.

I came across Captain Backfire via soundcloud last month and when a whale of Ed Sheeran, Rizzle Kicks and Daughty sounds with a little pop twist came blurring out my speakers a cheesy smile drew on my face. Real name Robert Gilbert is bringing a lovely sunny side up atmosphere to his music with frank storytelling lyrics, a light, rough around the edges voice and the ability to play a guitar with the passion of a fat kid eating cake.

He has loads of songs on his soundcloud ( but below are a few of my special favs each demonstrate little gems of his personality. Enjoy!
