With the release of his critically acclaimed new album, Building a Beginning, the British-born, Nashville-based singer-songwriter Jamie Lidell seems to have completed a stunning metamorphosis. From his early days as part of the millennial techno duo Super Collider through various experiments with digitally souped-up, psychedelic soul (with collaborators like Beck, Feist, and Chilly Gonzales), the bearded, bespectacled Lidell has emerged as a straight-up soul singer. With deep, gritty power vocals, a true showman’s charisma, and the astonishing talent of his seven-piece band, Lidell’s live show explodes with the spirit-raising energy of 1970s Stevie Wonder cut with funky futuristic embellishments.
