In At The Deep End
Martin Aston, MOJO, August 1994
AWARE HE COULD be unfairly accused of trading on the family name, Jeff Buckley, Tim Buckley's 27-year-old son, has spent the last three years honing his act in New York's folk clubs and cafes before unveiling his first recordings. The Live At Sine-E EP and his first album, Grace (out August 15), confirm an intensely mesmeric talent with a similarly wild, mercurial voice as his father's, but his own blazing cache of wounded torch songs, restless rockers and wayward blues.
