An expressive voice, the gift of raw talent, organic sex appeal...yes, we ARE talking about Neil Hamburger! With Still Dwelling, Neil brings the full weight of his personality to the mic, vocalizing new life into some of the greatest songs of his era. Dare we say, superior versions? You bet. His latest video from the album is for "Lonely" (written by Mark Eitzel and originally recorded by American Music Club for their 1988 album California). Stunning arrangements from partner-in-crime Erik Paparozzi transform the song into something that sounds like it was culled from the 1967's Top of the Pops! Neil's reading of the lyrics embodies the gritty pathos of the original, swinging achingly atop electrifying melodies, momentarily delaying - as all the best songs do - the grim truth beneath the surface.

The video for "Lonely," directed by Anthony Frith & Micah Van Hove, finds Neil in his natural habitat of barren after hours bars and desolate nighttime street corners, smelling of gin and regret. Let the soothing echo of Neil's words and and the sweet strains of the music transport you to that very place, to hover like a voyeur knowing the feelings and feeling them - without getting your feet wet with vomit! Watch "Lonely" above and grab your copy of Still Dwelling on LP/CD/!
