Recently, we had the fantastic opportunity of supporting Michael Cassidy at the legendary Glasgow venue King Tuts Wah Wah Hut ("Britain's Best Small Venue" NME). Michael and his band were fab and they enjoyed fantastic support on the night. We were able to try out for the first time our latest line up of 2 x keyboards (Euan Stevenson and Theo Forrest) with acoustic guitar (Fraser Jackson) which not only sounded really fresh and lush, but also allowed more space for my voice and the lyrics.
The feedback has been amazing! Three years ago, unsure of where our music was going stylistically, I sat down with my writing partners and we agreed on how we ideally wanted our music to sound. A cross between Amy Winehouse and Adele was our ultimate goal and the greatest compliment of the night came from the man who stole the show with his jaw-dropping guitar playing - Marc O'Reilly - who, without prompting, suggested that our music sounded just like that!
Marc is an incredible singer/songwriter from Ireland and he silenced the crowd with his energy and commitment to his songs. Witnessing his passionate performance (it's as if he goes into a trance!) was inspiring and I would recommend to anyone the purchase of his latest album My Friend Marx which was released on Salt and Shake Records earlier this month. It's absolutely stunning! Thanks again to everyone who came to see the gig at Tuts - we loved it - and hope you did too!
