Steve Hogarth

H: One Love – Naked in the Chapel DVD

Review by Gary Hill

I make no excuses, I’ve always preferred the Fish era of Marillion to the current one fronted by Steve Hogarth. That said, I do like the Hogarth period of the band and have nothing but the deepest respect and admiration for Hogarth and his talents. The man is gifted and in many ways this DVD is the perfect outlet for his gift.

This concert is just him and a piano working through Marillion songs, Hogarth songs and a number of covers. All of this is delivered with interaction with the audience and a genuine getting to know the man feeling. This is an intimate show and that is one of its charms. For my money the song that really steals the show is his cover of David Bowie’s “Life On Mars,” but the truth is, Hogarth is charming and talented – and that combination works exceedingly well here. I’d highly recommend this to Marillion fans, but really to just about anyone. It’s an incredibly cool release.

This review is available in book format (hardcover and paperback) in Music Street Journal: 2009  Volume 3 at lulu.com/strangesound.
