      So what have you got that is popular to others? should we also wonder why you exist as well while you do nothing but comment on others creations?

    I think many of Nick Drake's songs would be fair game for being covered by Puddles.

    I'm a huge Elvis fan, and I hate when people cover his songs and completely screw them up. But this cover made me subscribe. Thank you for sharing your talent with us.

    so brilliant

    Puddles, you give us something new, fresh, outside of the box and very much creativeness. It's sweet positive, and uplifting with a bit of saltiness added (depending on the crowd.). You shock us not by crude attention getting stunts, but by sheer talent, and a sense of the absurd. Not what music execs have been force feeding us for years. Outrageousness only works when it hasn't been beaten to death or predictable. I love how you don't need to talk. Your action sand singing. communicate superbly what's on your mind. Never thought I would be obsessed with an imposing shaven headed 7 foot tall clown. You are not one who needs to explain why we should "get it".

    The only Elvis song I liked. Fine Young Cannibals did a decent cover. Puddles- anything you touch turns to gold. Keep posting .

    I've loved Puddles since saw him at Teatro Zinzanni. Amazing talent. So glad he's popular. I pray that he isn't forced out of intimate settings into a big stage.

  • Laura Judd

    You're voice and its timbre are beautiful and you - your character - is so poignant and it evokes so much emotion.

    I genuinely love what you do, Puddles, and the originality with which you do it. Love you to pieces. Please tell Big Mike that I thank him kindly for sharing you with us and I wish you both all the luck in the world with your future.

  • Johnp
    Johnp 18 days ago

    Dude this guy is just plain old awesome. I think he is an awesome singer but he might need to get rid of the clown suit. Then again I think that's what makes him a little more awesome. He is being what he wants to be and killing it.

    • hammersteve8
      hammersteve8 17 days ago

      Johnp I think the beauty of him is you can enjoy all aspects. Just his superb voice (via Yt download, Deezer etc), live or watch the fantastic Yt videos all which feature his humour and pathos. The 'I started a joke' video/song is incredible as is 'All the small things'

  • Cory Gilliam
    Cory Gilliam 18 days ago

    This clown does it all,with gusto!! His funny/sad make up reminds me a bit of Klaus Nomi/David Bowie. Puddles seems gives forth a message that life is a big fascinating; yet frustrating, fluke. He reminds us not to take our existence too seriously, even in the most down moments, but to nourish the silly inner child. We can experience the joyful parody while it last! Artist like Marcel Duchamp (of "Fountain" fame) and performers such as Andy Kaufman would definitely dig this act. Today we have the Kountry Klown, Yeee hawww!! Tomorrow we will have a clown of a different variety.

    I don't think I've heard anything by Puddles that wasn't incredible ( ESPECIALLY Cheap Trick's "I Want You To Want Me"). But, Puddles, if you have a shred of decency, you'll NEVER EVER do Donovan. I don't think I could take a cover of "Mellow Yellow" (quite righteously).

    I've been truly inspired by Puddles. I'm a big guy, who does baritone range and I recently have tried to attack songs with the technique that this guy uses. So far it's been pretty receptive generally. Thanks to Puddles, I'm embracing my range

    This guy is brilliant! You've created a melancholy persona that is the perfect vehicle for such an incredible voice. The irony in your act is delicious! I think you're incredible...I would love to have a copy of Day After Day, Folsom Pinball Mashup, and a few others on my iPhone. Please release an album of covers so your fans can support you financially!

    Poor Puddles at his most depressed, from his sad slump with downcast eyes to the so-quiet-ya-gotta-lean-in-closer vocals, then looking like he's gonna throw up after it ends, this is a brilliant presentation. Found myself nearly begging out loud LOOK AT ME which makes the "lie to you" gaze all the more powerful. Holy shit, P, seriously, you're just so good, and I'm struck again by how grateful I am to have found you.
