Stuart A. Staples

Cousteau Micah P. Hinson Mick Harvey Spain Tindersticks

Lead singer of the Tindersticks. Born on 14 November 1965 in Nottingham. Like Tom Waits or Mark Lanegan, Stuart Staples has a ragged voice that sounds like it's been wrecked by years of cigarettes and alcohol. Whether singing his lyrics in a whispery croon or incoherent mumble, Staples captures the twilight atmosphere of a lonely, dilapidated pub, creating sorrowful music that has little punch in daylight but becomes cathartic for lost souls in the late evening.
