Jeff Buckley: Son Arise

Ted Kessler, New Musical Express, 27 August 1994

Born with a voice to die for and a runaway father who follows him everywhere, JEFF BUCKLEY's wish not to discuss the late, great old man contradicts his usual vocal dexterity. But like all good journalists, NME's TED KESSLER gets him to spill the beans as well as discuss the emotionally laden musical nuances of his haunting album, Grace.
