Mockingbird

‘Mockingbird is the second album from Scottish/American singer songwriter David Ogilvy and is a collection of gentle folk based songs many with a decidedly Dylanesque feel with more than a hint of Gordon Lightfoot in the vocals.

The songs are mainly Ogilvy originals but a Dylan cover is perhaps the best indication of where his influences lie although the fusion of his dual heritage offers more than enough originality and makes for a highly enjoyable album.’
