A true poet with a passion for his art, Modlin’s talent as a singer/songwriter is boundless. His message is clear, his voice gentle and precise, brimming over with emotion and heavily laden with sentiment. Modlin’s many musical inspirations: James Taylor, Jeff Buckley, Bob Dylan, Neil Young and Eddie Vedder to name a few filter subtly through his music. At thirteen Modlin began playing guitar after his father bought him a Jimi Hendrix CD. He would listen to Hendrix for hours on end and in his words ‘wrote terrible lyrics on crumpled pieces of paper.
His evocative lyrics now flow articulately and his haunting melodies align perfectly. Songs that take you on a journey, to that place where only you know. Beautiful, timeless music that will last a lifetime. In an age when people are desperately looking for authenticity, Modlin is the real deal. His music and endearing stage presence are magnetic and yet withdrawn. A real troubadour with an individual and yet commercial appeal.
