Nigel Hall - "Gimme a Sign" (video) (premiere)

Soul singer Nigel Hall's "Gimme a Sign" takes R&B music back to a time when wasn’t just a genre, it was a lifestyle.

We like soul musician Nigel Hall so much at PopMatters that we placed his recent album at #3 on our Best R&B of 2015 list late last year. Colin McGuire wrote that "'Gimme a Sign' takes R&B music back to a time when wasn’t just a genre, it was a lifestyle, its guitar recalling that of Steve Cropper and his work on pretty much every Stax Records single between 1962 and 1965.

In this new video for "Gimme a Sign", Hall gathers together a bunch of his fans to hold up signs forming the lyrics of the song.

Hall says, "much love to PopMatters for premiering the #GimmeASign video my fans put together for our first single. Getting to work with all these wonderful people that love the Ladies & Gentleman… Nigel Hall record was so much fun, and we were humbled by the countless submissions we received!"

Edward Gorey, Agent of Chaos

Two recent books on screenwriter, illustrator and author Edward Gorey, Born to Be Posthumous and Gorey's Worlds, are engaging works that show that Gorey's mystique remains safely impenetrable.
